    I have had a couple of mentors, but my two right now are amazing! I'm actually kind of getting mentored by an entire agency (a small one) but still. The confidence that they have given me is amazing and I just want to make them proud! I try and give back by offering to help almost anyone who is willing to take it!xoxo

    I don't currently have a mentor but have had a few wonderful ones in the past. They are definitely key to learning the ropes in a variety of different situations. xoxo, Jenny || Breakfast at Lillys

    One thing I regret about not being in a sorority is the relationships all the girls had with their sisters. Even if they are younger, sometimes having a friend as a mentor, before having a larger mentor is a wonderful idea!

    Amazing post and I love how you ended it- "someone else's success doesn't lessen mine". So true! Mentor's are so important, and I know I wouldn't be where I am in my career without each of mine! Mentoring is also an incredible opportunity, and really shows how much you have learned- even when you didn't realize it!xo.http://apeachysonder.blogspot.com

    I completely agree with this. Mentors are so much more essential/important than we might give them credit for!! LaurenThe Fashionista's Diary

    I absolutely love this story! I have several "mentors" that I know I can lean on/ask for advice/bounce ideas off of/etc. Because I'm in the education field, many of them were my previous teachers from high school. It's a good feeling knowing that you always have someone to push you to be your best and to lean on when you're feeling down. :)xoxo, SSThe Southern Stylista

    One thing I don't get about getting a mentor is do you just ask them? Or how do you actually go about doing that? Great post by the way!xoxo Lex // LexMeetsWorld

    What a wonderful post! It's amazing that you were able to find someone that you felt comfortable enough with to seek out for support. And you'd make a lovely mentor, it sounds like you really have your head screwed on and I'm sure you have a wealth of wisdom and advice to offer.Jess xo

    I wish I had more mentors in my job hunt right out of school! I have some blogging mentors now that have really helped me out 🙂 I'm so happy you found a mentor of your own, it sounds like he was really beneficial!xo, Alicia | Alicia Tenise

    I loved reading this! I don't have a mentor right now but I know how much a good mentor can do to lift our spirits and also give us good advice.

    I love this story. I have a few people that I consider to be mentors. They start as friends or family but then I start to trust them with career advice. It's so helpful!

    I'm not sure I've had a mentor per say, but I do have a lot of people that I look up to!

    Thank you for this post! I am now realizing that I have more "mentors" in my life that I had previously recognized. Friends, family members, classmates and colleagues all mentor me in different ways, perhaps without even realizing it.xo,Melissa | These words are my own.

    This is a really great post! It's always a good idea to have someone to talk to that has been or is in similar situations.
