    Hello @Seundavid .. and welcome to NamePros! :)

    The scope of everything you need to learn about domaining as someone new is really beyond what you can ask someone to guide you through completely .. particularly when there is already so much information available for you to learn from for free. I suggest you take some time to go through all the corners of NamePros .. as well as check out many of the blogs (you can check out mine at NameCult) and podcasts (@DomainSherpa is very helpful, as is @DomainNameWire). Then if you have specific concepts or questions you don't understand, if the question/topic does not already exist, definitely free free to start a new discussion on your question/topic in the appropriate section of NamePros!

    Best of luck to you! :)

    I've said this before: If anyone here privately offers to be your mentor for a fee or partnering with domain buys or sells, DON'T DO IT !

    Trolls and con artists hang out in every forum and will be happy to take your money to teach you their "expertise".

    Welcome aboard. You can find some very experienced and wise domain experts out here. I, with only a tech background and being poor in Mktg/Valuation find this site most valuable to scale my skills. You can do this as well.

    If you have not already discovered it, excellent resources on NPs in the Beginners section..

    https://www.namepros.com/threads/popular-beginner-discussions.844937/

    I put together a long list of domain investor beginning advice which may be helpful.

    https://agreatnameforyou.blogspot.com/2018/08/advice-to-domain-investors.html

    If your funds allow, DNAcademy will teach you well. Otherwise as @Ategy.com posted DomainSherpa episodes and follow DomainNameWire.

    There are hundreds of posts at NameTalent, some geared to beginners, such as this Guide to Getting Started With NameBio.

    The very best wishes for success.

    Bob

    Welcome @Seundavid - nice to have you at NamePros! In addition to all the tips offered above, it's good to understand that domain investing is a slow process and rarely leads to instant wealth. Be sure to buy slowly and carefully - you'll learn a lot from your early purchases.
    Happy domaining to you -

    Determine the " domain aspect " that interests you personally and search out as much as possible that is specific or relates to your interests and abilities.

    Read posts about your interests and likely you will see several posters whose interests are similar to yours and some have posted info and ideas relative to your interests.

    Post your domain questions in threads that are specific to your interests.

    Welcome to NamePros!

    I don't think you need a mentor. You simply need to educate yourself, do research like everybody else. There are no shortcuts. If you don't have the time, patience and inclination and expect quick results, you'd rather think twice.
