Searching For a Mentor

“My mentor said, ‘Let’s go do it,’ not ‘You go do it.’ How powerful when someone says, ‘Let’s!'” – Jim Rohn

So, you want to make some changes this year. You want to implement some important initiatives at the firm and you also want to make some changes, personally.

A mentor would be a good idea. Someone to hold you accountable and to actually help you along the road of change.

How do you choose a mentor? Here are some things to consider:

Experience – Make sure your potential mentor has been through what you are facing. Do they have the appropriate background to help answer your questions and give you guidance?

Communication – Determine what communication style works best for both of you. A potential mentor might prefer conversations in person or by phone. Another might prefer to have more of an online type relationship.

Life-stage: Has the potential mentor been through the life-stage that is currently giving you significant challenges? Can they give you practical and applicable advice and tools?

Over the last couple of years, mentoring and coaching people working in the CPA profession has become my most requested service. In fact, I only have a couple of slots open for monthly mentoring clients. Maybe I can help you. Contact me if you want to just talk about your situation. I offer a no obligation consultation.
