Mentors are good for everyone. It’s the finding that’s hard. 

 

  • Mistake to think we need to actively find or choose and ask one.

  • More a mindset on both sides. Willingness to be one and to have one.

  • Once you have the mindset, then mentorships kinda happen. 

  • Do you already have one?

  • Unexpected places and people. Be open minded.

  • Other considerations: being someone or seeking someone respectable, in the literal sense of the term. Mentors don’t need to be highly placed. They need to be wise. 

  • They don’t need to be formalized. In fact, that might cool them off. 

  • They aren’t just about the job.

  • They are kinda like long friendships, in fact they often cross into that, but more that they need time and effort.

Its the term for the adults still caring for children at home when their own parents care needs rise.  It can be complicated, messy and a little uncomfortable. We are here to help navigate.

65/ It Takes a Village 

Life shouldn't be lonely.  We are meant to be together and thrive!  Today we talk about what happened to the village and how we can rebuild it.

64/ How to Delegate

Effective delegation is a neglected skill. Circular trap. When it doesn’t quickly work, we often think it is easier to do things ourselves, which makes effective delegation more elusive..

63/ Back To School

Having now seen school from almost every angle and gotten perspective from the pandemic, I have many thoughts on what I would do differently if I had the chance.
