For the next several posts, I will spend considerable time sharing ten valuable lessons my mentor, Lynn, has taught me thus far in our mentoring partnership.
I am sure when Lynn first met me, she didn’t realize she was signing up to mentor me for a decade and counting!
I am glad she doesn’t seem to mind.
Without Lynn I most certainly wouldn’t be here. MentorCONNECT, the nonprofit I run, wouldn’t be here either.
When I met Lynn I met someone who convinced me that my dreams of the human being I could one day be weren’t entirely out of the question.
When I met Lynn, I met an embodied version of hope.
So the first thing my mentor taught me is “there is never a reason to give up hope.”
