I am…a mentor.
I have mentored friends starting their own bookkeeping business. Mentoring is part of the reason I started Peninsula Bookkeepers Association years ago. The meetings are an opportunity to hear speakers on related topics including software and tax reporting issues. Another bigger piece is ask questions of fellow bookkeepers and learn from their experiences. Sharing in order to inspire others to achieve their goals is part of mentoring I enjoy participating in.
I found a national mentoring organization here in the United States. Go to www.mentoring.org. They have a national mentoring partnership to mentor children.
