Well I want to recap with my previous answer. I spoke with a menotr who I connected with and she appeared to be able to help me take my business in the directions that I want it to go. Problem is that every time we schedule a date and time to connect, she cancels on the very same day which seems to have become a pattern and so it has raised concerns as I question her reliability.

I am seeking a mentor that stands behind the profile the project and can really work with me. Continued broken promises is really ugly and I am not sure what to do now because I need to work on my company reaching its desired goals.

I can understand your concern Desheen. It is frustrating when that occurs. It is a matter of continuing to look for a mentor who can assist you. Perhaps you ask them that question in the initial conversation.

You can also do a lot for yourself. If you think about what you really want to achieve, write it down. Then align that with your goals and action plan.

There is much information on the web about this and I have detailed a chapter called Planning in my leadership book. If you'd like the chapter, you are welcome to get in touch with me.

Best wishes Merydith
