6 Minute Career Climb Tip of the Day: Never ask someone to be your mentor. In "6 Minute Career Climb: You, Inc.," Time Warner exec Daisy Auger-Dominguez shares with TWLC's Viviana Hurtado 2 career success essentials: the board of You, Inc., plus how to leverage workplace diversity to advance quickly.

Watch the video here:

  • How to approach the "mentors," "advisors," and "sponsors" who will sit on the board of You, Inc. and propel your career to the level you want.
  • How dating and the shoes in your closet can help you choose and nurture the board of You, Inc.  After all, the strongest relationships are two way streets, no?  And you wouldn't wear your running shoes to a gala, or your Manolos on your 5 miler, right?
  • Diversity in the workplace: your "mentor," "advisor," and "sponsor" will not be La Virgen María. Instead s/he will be someone who doesn't look like you but will help you write the playbook to your career success.
