The Power of Mentors
One of the most memorable wisdom nuggets that I’ve received came from a long time mentor who once told me to always live with a ‘vision beyond your resources’. His message to me was simple and challenged me to tear down the mind made walls that, at times, hold all of us back. I was privileged, at a young age, to have had a front row seat as he was building two enduring companies in the Washington DC area; contributing to no less than six boards at any given time, all while never losing sight of his greater purpose to ‘give every willing kid’ the opportunity to see a better future. I admired him for the person he was, the example he set for me, and most notably, for his selflessness. You’re most fortunate if you get through life with one such guiding influence; luckily, Penelope Trunk – “The world’s most influential guidance counselor” – gives you the best approach to finding and maximizing such a mentor —-
