Mentoring and networking are part of one's personal and career transformation.
But life is all transformation, isn't it? From the fact we don't stay little, to the fact we gain experience through new ideas and projects.
So really, every day/hour/thought has the potential to shift our status quo a little.
Then we're transforming, changing, morphing without even trying. By making conscious choices and decisions, we can try and steer the course to what we desire.
So how can we not mentor and be mentored? Why would we avoid building communities around ourselves and those we love?
Change will happen anyway - choose to embrace it and understand it.
