I’m at a moral dilemma.
I am in the process of inserting content into my very first blog. I’m hoping to make multiple. I recently had a complex problem that I wouldn’t have solved without the help of my mentor who’s never asked for anything.
What he taught me I was going to put in the blog so people don’t have to go through the problem I did without making up their own solution. I said I was going to credit him for helping me with the problem in the blog but at the same time I’m using these blogs to promote myself and show employers that I know how to solve problems.
Would this work against me if I mentioned my mentor in the blog and make employers think that I can’t work autonomously? If so I should probably just pay him for the amount of time he has spent helping me. What do you think?
