What makes you a good mentor?

Practical experience and knowledge is necessary in understanding how, when and where to apply what we learn while in university and will give a mentee a leg up on everyone else who doesn't have the benefit of a mentor. The mentor/mentee relationship is mutually beneficial with both parties coming out with a better understanding of business and themselves. I hope by conveying my experiences I will be able to assist my mentee and myself in reaching our full potential.
