This thing has been passed around so many times I should get it checked for chlamydia. #mentorship (at little cellar in the mission)
Mentoring is very important. Why push ourselves so hard to excel and be on the top of our field if we aren’t going to share what we’ve learned, accomplished, failed at, stumbled with, overcome, etc? Spending an afternoon helping someone who wants to one day be where you are is humbling and inspiring. This year I am thankful for my mentors who have pushed, cheered, and helped me build confidence in what I do. I’m also thankful to be able to help others the same way, even if just for 2 hours in an afternoon. (at little cellar in the mission)
