As creative entrepreneurs, sometimes we’re killing it in life and biz. But sometimes we’re stuck. Unsure of where to go next or what to do. Sometimes we need a little help. And oftentimes, there are signs showing up in your life and biz that you might need a mentor! You guessed it – this Friday Five blog post is dedicated to five signs that you might need a one-on-one mentor.
You probably already know this, but my sweet friends…
And I love even more so that I have become a part of the creative community in a different way over the last year. Since launching one-on-one mentoring in my business, I haven’t looked back! As a wedding photographer and mentor for creatives, I believe that I offer a unique perspective. It’s a joy to share my passion with the creative community.
So, here are five signs that you might need a one-on-one mentor…
Maybe you’re working crazy hours or putting more time and effort into your business than a conversation with your husband at the dinner table or than a playdate with your kiddos… Or maybe you’re feeling so overwhelmed by your business that you don’t even know what to do next. Friend, if you’re feeling overwhelmed, this might me a sign that you need a one-on-one mentor. I promise you that a good mentor can help you navigate these times of burnout. If you’re in this season, a mentor can help you work through these seasons of overwhelm. As a mentor, seeing these transformations happen before my eyes bring me so much joy!
Do you have those moments where you think – goodness, it would just be nice to have another set of eyes on this! I’ve been in these exact shoes. Dreaming, goal setting, and growing my business but feeling like I need another person’s perspective that “gets” it… Looking to a mentor that is a creative entrepreneur and knows the ins and outs of running a business could be just what you and your business need. Getting outside perspective from a seasoned professional in the creative industry that is not only going to encourage you in you business but also push you to grow and pursue your passions could be incredibly impactful for you and your business.
Hey again, I’ve been here too! There are times in our businesses where we feel motivated and nothing can get in the way of our goals, to-do lists, and we are full of drive. But there are also times in our businesses where we feel as though we’re struggling with motivation and need a push in our businesses. If you’re feeling this way, a one-on-one mentor that fits you and your businesses needs can help you!
Mentors, like myself, help give you direction and guide you based on personal experience. No, we can’t tell you what your goals should be (and I don’t believe we should!)… But we can help encourage you in a way of dreaming big, making a plan, and working toward those goals through actionable steps.
Community is one of the most important parts of my business! From having a tribe of photographer friends to a community of creatives near and far, community is a key to success. As a mentor, it is part of my mission to connect with other creatives in a way that goes far beyond our time spent in one-on-one mentoring. It is my mission to encourage other women to succeed. Being an entrepreneur can be lonely at times, and I believe we are stronger when we lean on and encourage each other.
Friend, I’ve got you! Send me a message – even if it’s just to say hello – I would love to start a conversation. It would be an honor to encourage you in your creative passion project. Because after all, I believe we can all pursue our creative passion projects while serving ourselves and our people.
P.S. – Wanna learn more about mentoring? It’s the icing on the cake where I help you navigate your biz so that you can live your life and pursue your creative passion!
