If you don't have a mentor, that's OK! If your resume or portfolio is light or even non existent, that's OK! (I've been at this for 6 years and still don't really have a portfolio) The fact that you are thinking about these things is a huge win! Given time and some hard work you can accomplish all of these!
Reading your comment was the exact kind of encouragement I needed today :)
