What is the best way to find an import/export mentor?
Several months ago I started reading about careers that would not only allow me to work for myself, but also to travel a bit. Import/Export seems like it may be a good fit but I am having some trouble getting started. I’ve done some reading and research but would like to find a mentor.
I am currently considering writing down a list of the questions that I have, looking for import/exporters on linked in and asking if they will allow me to interview them. From that point, depending on rapport, I can ask if they are interested in mentoring me. I’ve never done this before and was wondering if anyone can recommend a different approach to finding a mentor or is interested in being a mentor.

Have you ever wondered why there are the lowercase letters m and e before the word commerce when speaking about importing and exporting?
It is in fact very simple. The lowercase e stands for electronic, which creates the expression electronic commerce, hence e-commerce.
The other lowercase, m, stands for mobile. Mobile commerce refers to commercial transactions conducted electronically by mobile phone. As you can tell, m-commerce is more specific and follows the natural development of human connectivity.
