It was not too long ago when I realized I was mentoring - a whole lot - for my team, clients, younger ones, and ...it seemed everywhere I turned! If you’ve ever had enough people counting on you for leadership, advise, and encouragement, you may have come to realize when it’s time for “the mentor” to get a mentor!
This was an ah-hah moment and while it convinced me I was in the right place at the right time, it was a time to assess. If I’ve learned anything, it’s there are always people who are smarter, wiser, who see bits of us we can’t see in ourselves.
I was blessed with many mentors as long as I can remember, and as a mentor does, mine picked up the phone after 10 years of not hearing from me. And as it should be, it was as if a day hadn’t passed when we got caught up.
Warren! A truly great human, friend, and business mentor.
I was able to run a few things by him, he had some good ideas and a lot of genuine encouragement (yay! I needed that but didn’t realize it until I got it). Not the usual “you got this girl blah-blah”, but the real stuff we can only get from someone who’s worked with us, seen us succeed and fail.
Among other things, Warren brought me up to date with the family and his daughter, who was in high school last I checked!
Long story short, Warren and Christine have wonderful kids (no surprise- they are amazing). Sara, pictured here with her dad is happily one of “my people” now too! And I’m one of hers.
Sara is a brilliant marketing whiz and a joy to work with, just like dad. I’m thrilled bringing her powerful, yet lighthearted networking organization, District Bliss, here to San Diego.
Although there are many networking groups to choose from, we have unique plans for our area. Watch my stories and livestreams for events; pop-ups, vendor socials, and business building workshops.
Our theme is, “Why professionals need professionals” and our content will bring a bit of the east coast business culture here, to the west coast.
It’s essential to have people. Lots of quality people 💕 Are you a mentor?
