I had always felt that I needed to "make it" before I could start giving back. but over the last year I've been a mentor to a 9 year old boy called Nathaniel who had been excluded from school and - cliché I know - it's been one of the best experiences of my life. That's the honest truth.
My face softened as I smiled and rather liked the smile looking back at me then a light switch popped in my head. A light was turned on and has stayed there ever since. The light gave me my new friends hope, quickly followed by peace (of mind)...the 'beautiful gift in the ugly box' as I call this episode of my life gave me my purpose.
In the current social and economic climate, with issues such as mental health and poverty hitting the headlines as prevalent issues, young people are going to require these attitudes - in particular resilience - more than ever over the coming years. It's our responsibility to make sure the support is available to bring these out and empower young people to lead their own positive lives.
Confidence is crucial for entrepreneurial success, and having a mentor who can offer encouragement along the way can make a huge difference. But mentoring also helps women develop hard skills that are vital to business growth. Knowing how to write a robust business plan, balance a budget or implement a marketing strategy are competencies that are often out of reach for women living in developing communities... Ultimately, the real success stories are the women entrepreneurs themselves. Onty says that working with Cherie enabled her business to break even for the first time. Business growth aside, she's also determined to use her success to help other young women in her community - proof that empowering women generates lasting impacts.
The importance of "mentoring" within the corporate world is widely discussed these days: by leadership and HR teams to assist
As the world of business evolves at rapid speed, it's not uncommon to find yourself feeling overwhelmed with eager competitors. The initial enthusiasm and determination chips away and it can become a challenge to re-motivate yourself, even more so when plagued with doubts on whether you or your business is good enough.
Every person who has ever built a successful business has had a mentor - usually more than one at different stages of the company's growth. They might not have called these people mentors or viewed them as such; they might just have thought of them as a friend.
