Mentors.

If all you know about mentors is everyone says you need one, then this episode is for you! 

Mentors have walked where you are wanting to go. They have a wealth of knowledge to share with you!

If they can share all the lessons that they’ve learned along the way that would save you years, why wouldn’t you want to listen to that?!

There are times, however, that you will have to walk the long way and make mistakes as you go. But consider those as times that you can pay it forward and mentor someone who is a few years behind you so they don’t have to make the same mistakes you did!

But where do you even start?
How do you find a mentor?
Does a mentor need to be older than you?
How do you start a mentor relationship without being weird?

Find out the answer to all of these questions and more as I talk with Kelsey Chapman all about mentors!

Listen here.

Action Steps to apply to YOUR journey:

Before you find a mentor you need to know what’s important to you!

Journal about your values – What are the things most important to you and what are you looking for in your life? This will help you be able to spot someone with the same values as you that could potentially be a good mentor.

I’m rooting for you friends!
