Social Media has become a platform for individuals to stand vehemently on their soapboxes and share their voices. I would like to share my thoughts. I don’t speak out much about social issues on this professional profile, however, I feel I have some things I would like to share. Maybe more understanding of the people around us, opening up discussions between people and agreeing to disagree would help us come to a more loving place where there are less division and more embracing

ABOUT THIS EPISODE 
Mentorships can be an important asset to personal developmental whether it’s career driven or more personal. Working directly with a person that is more experienced or more knowledgeable than you are can open doors, help nurture of new ideas and advancements, keep you from costly mistakes and you could even build a life long friendship.

SHOW QUOTES

  • “Do not train a child to learn by force or harshness; but direct them to it by what amuses their minds, so that you may be better able to discover with accuracy the peculiar bent of the genius of each.” ― Plato
  • “Remind yourself that a mentor’s time is not free. The actual time they spend with you is worth money, and the years of advice or area of expertise they are helping you with required significant investment on their part” – Inc.
  • “It was my teacher’s genius, her quick sympathy, her loving tact which made the first years of my education so beautiful. It was because she seized the right moment to impart knowledge that made it so pleasant and acceptable to me. She realized that a child’s  mind is like a shallow brook which ripples and dances merrily over the stony course of its education and reflects here a flower, there a bush, yonder a fleecy cloud; and she attempted to guide my mind on its way, knowing that like a brook it should be fed by mountain streams and hidden springs, until it broadened out into a deep river, capable of reflecting in its placid surface, billowy hills, the luminous shadows of trees and the blue heavens, as well as the sweet face of a little flower. Any teacher can take a child to the classroom, but not every teacher can make him learn. He will not work joyously unless he feels that liberty is his, whether he is busy or at rest; he must feel the flush of victory and the heart-sinking of disappointment before he takes with a will the tasks distasteful to him and resolves to dance his way bravely through a dull routine of textbooks. My teacher is so near to me that I scarcely think of myself apart from her. How much of my delight in all beautiful things is innate, and how much is due to her influence, I can never tell. I feel that her being is inseparable from my own, and that the footsteps of my life are in hers. All the best of me belongs to her–there is not a talent, or an aspiration or a joy in me that has not been awakened by her loving touch.” – Helen Keller
