The Underestimated Importance of a Mentor
by Corinna Klawon - Sep, 2014
I have been recently faced with some challenges in my personal life but also in my work life (I applaud people who can separate the two). I have found myself just running in a circle in hopes of finding an answer. I am trying to better understand what my personal goals are and how I can close the gap between what I do and who I want to become.
