Mentoring Being of Service to Others

Last week, I received a call from someone I had met at a conference in Jan 2007. They wanted to know if I'd be interested in being a mentor to another aspiring entrepreneur. "Me? Be a mentor?" I asked. The woman on the other end of the line replied, Why, yes! You'd be a great inspiration."

Inspiration! Hmm! It has never really dawned on me that I could be an inspiration to someone. I publish a motivational magazine for women, yet I did not really think of myself as an inspiration...a mentor to someone.

To be a mentor is a very powerful thing indeed. You can shape or destroy someone's future with your words and actions. You are responsible for guiding someone. Growing up, I had three awesome mentors, not including my mother. Their words and inspiration empowered me to become what I am today: an educator, writer, publisher and motivational speaker.

I may not be making millions or even thousands of dollars doing what I do, but I am here. I am making a difference.

So, I told the lady I would love to be a mentor. What better way to be of service to someone than to open up the doors of possibilities for someone else. After all, that's what life is all about; that's what God's love is all about.
