When you ask a successful person what assisted them on their road to triumph, many of them will state that they had a mentor. A mentor is an adviser offering guidance from their lessons learned. A person that is being mentored is called a mentee. I have been both during my professional life.
As a mentor, I have provided informational sessions answering numerous questions from those seeking to be professional readers. I even created a class on this subject for those wishing to make that move. I have assisted in increasing the mentee’s self esteem, business acumen and marketing skills. For others, it was short term advice for handling issues with clients, setting up a booth at an expo, or giving them valuable contact information.
