“Although I consider you more friend then mentor, you are one of the key people in my professional life. Your help, guidance and inspiration, especially during my first year here in the Philippines helped set the stage for the new level of success I have been blessed with this year. For that I owe you my humble thanks for being a mentor to me as well as a trusted friend.”
This is a message I shared with some of my mentors here in Manila.
LinkedIn recently sent members an email suggesting they send thanks to their mentors. Pretty cool idea.
Mentor is defined as someone who teaches or gives help and advice to a less experienced and often younger person. I love being a mentor and have many less experienced and younger people I have taught/helped over the years, but even mentors need mentors.
Which makes me truly blessed as I have a long list of people helping guide me.
