“A mentor is someone who allows you to see the hope inside yourself.” — Oprah Winfrey
How can a mentor help as you embark on your career in natural health and wellness? You may think that mentoring is just another career recommendation that isn’t necessary to achieve your full potential. However, is that true?
Mentors can provide you with access to new contacts and additional knowledge and skills within your profession, as well as references and letters of recommendations. Mentors have your back and help you set and achieve both short- and long-term goals. Mentoring within the corporate world has long been an integral mechanism for developing the best employees. In fact, a survey by the Association for Talent Development found that three-fourths of private sector executives considered mentoring critical in achieving their current career status.
But, you don’t have to join the corporate sphere to benefit from mentoring. Many industry organizations have established formal mentoring programs or have members willing to mentor. Networking at industry events or conferences hosted by organizations like the National Association for Holistic Aromatherapy, Alliance of International Aromatherapists, American Herbalists Guild, National Association of Nutrition Professionals, or Natural Products Association can be a great way to connect with professionals and experts who have found success in your field.
Still wondering where to start? Here are some simple steps you can take to help find a meaningful mentor in the integrative health and wellness field:
