Having a mentor is a wonderful thing.
A mentor makes me feel like I have a big sister or brother at my side, helping me understand and get through the big world of business. I have a mentor here in Phoenix who is phenomenal. Not ONLY in terms of what an incredible writer she is, but most definitely in how helpful, giving and generous of her time and energy she has been since she gave me the inspiration to begin my freelance career as a word organizer.
Good mentors will show you how to be a better [insert name of profession here]. However, if you’re really lucky, a great mentor will also teach you how to be a better person. They’ll show you that generosity has no boundaries because they know that what they give will come back to them in the end.
