My and My Mentor – 5 tips for getting the most from your mentor in 2011

This month the very first edition of Smarter Business Ideas – Australia’s newest & biggest business magazine by circulation – landed on the desks of 525,000 business owners.  And it features a new section by Josephine Quilty called Me & My Mentor – which in my case really is about me and my mentee!  It’s an article about how I’ve worked with Lara Solomon to help her grow and diversify her business – which began with the award winning Mocks mobile phone socks business and has since expanded to include Social Rabbit, a new social media consulting business.

You may not be aware that apart from business owners, I also mentor women working in large corporates and professional services firms.  If you are thinking of engaging a mentor to provide career advice or business advice in 2011, I suggest you read my top 5 tips for getting the most from your mentor here.


“The personal one-on-one approach, open discussions about the challenges that working mothers and women in general face and the fact that Jen was so easy to talk to, made it a wonderful experience. Jen’s approach was open, warm, friendly, honest and empathetic, yet she still focused on the task at hand to give me challenges, to ask me questions of self evaluation and to give me the confidence to give it all a go.”  Birgitte Sorensen, Adelaide & Mount Lofty Ranges NRM Board
