Ideas. Insights. Inspiration.

On Mentoring

Below is a screenshot of an InMail I received on LinkedIn earlier this week, and my reply to the sender (whose name I've chosen to redact):

If a young professional reaches out to you for career advice, feel humbled they see you as someone who has valuable insights to offer, and find the time to help without expecting anything in return.

In these types of situations, being in a position to help is its own reward.
