I never planned to become a mentor.
Well, except for that one time at Uni when me and my friends signed up to every society meeting that had free food at the meetings.
Yes, I left pockets filled with sausage rolls and biscuits and no shame whatsoever. And a couple of weeks later I had a CB check through. Nothing ever came of it though – they must have realised we only came for the food and not the mentoring.
Anyway, I digress.
So, this mentoring and coaching stuff – it sort of happened by accident, which in my experience is always the best way. Creative and divine flow at it’s finest. It’s whenever my life works best – I shit you not. And with the gift of hindsight, I’ve been able to see just how much I’ve always done this for people – I even recently came across an old letter from one of my teachers praising me for giving up my time to help younger pupils at school. Nice one Miss Fry.
