Nathan Pirtle: Wow, important mentors — I will try to keep this as short as possible but I don’t know where I would be without my mentors, and the funny thing is they all offer something unique. I have Malcolm Spellman, Rob Kahane, Madeline Nelson, Wyclef Jean, Mpumi Nobiva, who is probably my youngest mentor and who introduced me to Oprah. Although I can’t call Oprah a day-to-day mentor, every chance that I am around her, I soak up as much knowledge as possible — one hour with her is like 50 years of mentorship. To me, a mentor doesn’t even have to be someone who is physically in your face, though, the funny thing is to me a mentor doesn’t have to be someone that you even physically know. Watching and studying someone from a distance is also a true form of mentorship.
