How do I know if I'm ready for a mentor?

I believe someone knows that they are ready when they start asking the question of whether or not they are. For me, I had a mentor really late in life. I wish that I could have found a support network sooner but the one I have found is just as amazing. The earlier you are at trying to figure out yourself, the more time you have to figure everything out. If you do decide to have a mentor, it doesn't mean you have to identify a certain way. It can be your "testing out the waters of information" time.
