          Joleen,

           

          I personally found my mentor when I was 18yrs old and starting out in the banking industry. It's a long story that I will share with those who care on a sideline, but the man who became my mentor was the CEO of the first bank I had ever worked for. We met in a 10K run and spent the entire day talking and exchanging ideas and strategies. He took a real interest in me, and it made me feel important. He would have me come down and present ideas to the board of directors, and praise me for my outside-the-box thinking. He was a really amazing person, and I learned so much from him. He passed away in 2010 from cancer. I like to think that each time I meet with a new client and help them become something, that I am honoring his memory.

           

          Regards,
