Men·tor – noun
1. a wise and trusted counsellor or teacher.
2. an influential senior sponsor or supporter.
I have a really fabulous mentor. A fellow nerd if you will. He has given me a wealth of info coming from a place of experience, knowledge and understanding. Love that I have someone in the industry that knows their shit and freely gives it to me in exchange for a cupcake or some chickpeas now and then. That is AWESOME.
If you’re just starting out like me, find someone you can trust and someone who knows their way around the cage. Ask for help. Ask for advice. It’s benefits are immeasurable.
To my wise and trusted counsellor, thank you for continually letting me pick at your awesome brain. If I could knit, I would make you this toque.
