"There are many benefits in volunteering time as a WJA Mentor! It's a great
opportunity to give back to members and helps establish and nurture positive,
professional relationships, which are key to the inudstry's growth and success.
Plus it allows me an opportunity to practice and improve my active listening
skills and reflect on what I've achieved and the steps it took to get there."

"I signed up as a WJA Mentor because I remember how hard it was starting
out all on my own and I believe in the value of supporting anyone approaching
a new adventure as a business owner. It is fulfilling seeing progress with your
mentee, and witnessing their plan unfold one step at the time during each
new session. For me menoring represents a chance to learn more inspirational
stories and do my little part in helping others believe in themselves and succeed."
