#MENTOR: an experienced & trusted adviser

According to thebalancecareers.com a mentor:

💥Takes a long-range view of your growth and development.
💥Helps you see the destination but does not give you the detailed map to get there.
💥Offers encouragement and cheerleading, but not "how to” advice.

My mom was my first and greatest mentor. She encouraged me to be what I wanted to be and never reminded me of the barriers I would have to cross to accomplish my goals. She showed me what strength and compassion look like in every situation. She shows up and is the first to ask, “How can I help?” when things get tough.

My mother was my mentor. She started her own business at the age of 21 in 1928, a time when few women worked outside the home. She built it incrementally and ran it for 45 years, using scrip during the Depression and selling "trousers" to women during WW2. I did not appreciate the values of hard work and optimism ("sales will always be better tomorrow!") so much at the time but now realize they are the core of my being and keep me looking to the future. Thank you, Jeane Rackes. #RIP #scwomenleadmentorchalleng

I have been so lucky in my life to be surrounded by smart, strong, & determined women. I was never taught that my womanhood made anything impossible or inappropriate. I have always been encouraged to reach for the stars 🌟 It certainly never occurred to me to let my gender get in the way of my dreams and goals. I thank all my women in my family for this but my #1 is and always will be my dear grandmother, Sarah G. McCrory. ❤️ Sarah fought sexism, racism, classism, in a nutshell she advocated for the dignity of every human being in every circumstance. This was my lesson from her & I’m weeping as I type. Thank you @scwil for the opportunity to remember. I challenge Allison Terracio to the #SCWomenLeadMentorChallenge!

I have learned so much from Jen Gibson!
