What it actually means to be a mentor?

· Intentional Leader,Mindset,Success Strategies

I am a mentor. And that does not translate into "do what I did."

It's a toolbox of skills I've developed by doing the thing over and over and over again.

It is a layer of knowledge gained through errors and failures just as much as triumphs.

It's the deep understanding acquired from holding, moving, and navigating it all.

It's an elevated perspective gained with discernment, awareness.

It's a dose of wisdom, equal-part ancestral, spiritual, and hard-earned.

And with that...

It's a sacred space where you can drop your armor and be all that you truly are.

It's a safe container where you are challenged, pushed, and held to grow...

...all so that you can move in the direction of your dreams, deep knowing, and
soul's desires, doing the thing your way, in a way that works for you.

Because you and I, we are a different kind of women leaders.
And the conventional isn't our speed,
the arbitrary isn't our style,
and the "tried & true" can't quite match our depths.

So you need a mentor who is just as multidimentional and limitless and timeline-hopping as you.

By default, that canceles out the "just do what I did."
