How’s your year going? Off to a good start? Do you have your intentions set for 2023? If not, contact me, and let’s have a “micro-mentoring” session.
The month of January was Mentoring Month. I’ve mentored many people and am introducing a new Mentoring Concept in my practice.
Have you run across a problem that you would like to talk about with a Mentor? One time, 45 minutes? That’s possible with me.
Micro-mentoring Usually occurs within a few hours or days.
