Lessons Learned In 2013 - Mentors/Coaches Are Important
Having someone who encourages you and only wants the best for you can make your life a lot easier. I have three women who helped me through 2013. From them I learned so much and that having a mentor or coach is very important to moving forward in your life.
My writing mentor, Dr. Linda Beed always starts my week off with a morning call, saying how are you my sister in success. We talk about writing, but what I love about our talks is that we inspire each other. She gives me ideas for my writing or for SORMAG and I do the same for her.
Writing is a lonely business, so you need someone who has your back and won’t let you slip into your pity party. You need someone who understands writing and how to encourage you to continue on your publishing journey when you think all hope has failed.
Thank you Ms. Linda for helping me become a better writer.
Thank you LaTara for helping me better me, which in turn will help me, be a better writer and business owner.
Also want to give shout outs to two ladies who are not my official coaches, however the wisdom they shared helped me grow as a business owner. LaShanda Henry and Cheryl Pullins. If you want to learn about how to stay a successful online business or how to build a brand, these are the ladies to follow. Hopefully one day I will be able to call them my coaches. Thank you LaShanda and Cheryl.
I’m thankful for learning the importance of a mentor and coach because growing is what we want to do in life. Sometimes that means stepping out your comfort zone and asking for help.
