Mentoring Objectives & Scope

I hope to spark good conversations in the areas of interest. I hope to counsel to help my mentees figure out what they think and not to advice on their lives. I believe there's no expert adviser of someone's life! But what I can do is paint a good picture of what it is (from my own personal experiences) to be an entrepreneur and / or part of the corporate world. People will often say the got good/or bad advice. That's probably not true, they just got good advice that didn't fit or an advice that fit!

When and where do you hold meetings with your students?

Virtual calls. Early mornings Pacific Time.
