It is always good to have an experienced mentor in your life to guide you and show you the ropes as a start in your career . Although its wise to listen, follow instructions and take advice it is also important to create a voice for yourself. Not because a mentor is successful that makes every piece of advice and instruction 100%, everyone has their own path to success use the ingenuity installed in you to create yours. What worked for them may not necessarily work for you. Success is a journey, there are hurdles and bumps along the way but the path that you're creating is YOURS! It might not be well paved from the start but there are ways of improvement along the road! I had to learn this the hard way.
