Mentoring is volunteering

People often confuse the ideas of being a mentor and being a coach. There are two very significant differences between these positions. A mentor is someone who provides advice and guidance without the intentions to make a profit or gains from the process. A coach gets paid to help you for a very specific task.

Be a tortoise and mentor someone.

Finding a mentor

Give my Mentor Manifesto a read.

Everyone that has spoken to me for more than 20 minutes in the past two years know my interest in mentorship has steadily increased. Over the summer, I took a few large steps in the direction of boosting the concept of mentorship in Atlanta, however, life got in the way. It was hard to push these concepts when I could not dedicate enough time to them due to moving and my business.

One of my 2015 goals is to really push mentorship harder through a more active positioning than what I was able to do in the first place. In order to really follow through though, I need to find my own mentor that is willing to dedicate time to guiding me through these very tedious business problems. After solving those issues, I will dive head first into the things that I started and come to a completion with them.
