Never Underestimate The Power of a Mentor


Even though I am a virtual assistant I still have occasional face-to-face meetings with my clients. I had the pleasure of meeting my most recent client this past Friday, and by the end of our meeting I realized I had found another mentor.

This particular client is truly impressive in that she is one of a few women in a male dominated industry and has risen to the top of that field in only three short years. She has done this through lots of hard work, training, and a real love for what she does which carries over into how she deals with her clients. 

This client has built her business slowly and carefully, prides herself on her commitment to her clients and their best interests, and because of that her business has grown dramatically. She is now ready to take her business to the next level and realizes that in order to do that she can no longer do it alone. I am so excited to help her on her journey to even greater success and I look forward to learning from her as well as helping her grow. 

We started talking about everything from business to personal and I mentioned how I’ve been struggling lately with my work-life balance. She gave me an excellent suggestion on what she and her husband do to keep their connection strong which I followed on Saturday and my partner Brandon and I had great date night out: we went to the movies to see The Hunger Games Catching Fire and talked and connected in ways we haven’t done in months!

Having someone to look to as an example of where I want to be is extremely powerful and is going to motivate me in ways I can’t imagine. I’m glad I found another strong mentor to help me on my journey to become the successful business person I know I can be.

  1. I think that a foreclosure can have a important effect on the applicant’s life. Real estate foreclosures can have a 8 to decade negative effect on a client’s credit report. Any borrower who may have applied for a home loan or almost any loans for that matter, knows that the particular worse credit rating is, the more complicated it is to obtain a decent personal loan. In addition, it could affect any borrower’s chance to find a decent place to let or rent, if that results in being the alternative housing solution. Thanks for your blog post.

  8. I have observed that over the course of building a relationship with real estate owners, you’ll be able to get them to understand that, in each and every real estate exchange, a fee is paid. In the long run, FSBO sellers tend not to “save” the payment. Rather, they struggle to win the commission simply by doing an agent’s task. In accomplishing this, they devote their money as well as time to accomplish, as best they are able to, the obligations of an realtor. Those responsibilities include exposing the home via marketing, introducing the home to all buyers, creating a sense of buyer urgency in order to induce an offer, making arrangement for home inspections, controlling qualification check ups with the loan provider, supervising repairs, and facilitating the closing.
