Being a Great First Time Mentor

Being a first time mentor can seem overwhelming! Credit: Garagestock at Shutterstock.
  1. First, remember its a privilege to be able to mentor: Most mentees will approach you because they have been struggling on a topic for a while and have finally mustered up the courage to reach out to someone they feel they can resonate with or can help them. This is a great privilege to be able to help them out! Remember to leave your ego about your accomplishments at the door. Being a mentor is a sacred relation to inspire someone, give them the courage to pursue their dreams, and be part of their journey — you should walk into the meeting knowing your privilege.
