I have an idea that I want to exercise by sending a letter to request mentorship from some of the people who live near my neighborhood. I live near the beach cities of CA and there are many wealthy people living in beautiful ocean front homes who seem to be doing very well and are very successful. I recently lost my job due to budget cuts and, while I am searching for a new job, I thought it would be wise to connect with these people and get some advice, guidance, training, networking, or possibly a full mentorship or apprenticeship. The one problem I have is; I don't personally know any of these people, so getting their attention and asking them to devote their time to me is my obstacle. I am already planning on sending a resume with a cover letter, but does anyone have any suggestions of how I could get started?
Thank you so much for all your help
