Season 2 Recap [00:00]

Sirisha: Hello, everyone. I'm excited to be wrapping up season two on mentorship for success. This is the season finale, as we do a recap of what we talked about. Mentoring relationships are safe spaces. There are many ways to find mentors, through formal programs, through informal programs. and just through peer networking.


"Mentoring relationships are safe spaces."

Mentors come in all forms and shapes and experiences. They could be someone who's a peer, they could be someone with a tremendous amount of experience and sometimes it could be someone new and that gives you an avenue into new exploratory territory, like social media or artificial intelligence. So please do go and find a mentor to enable your success, be it in your career or any other avenues that you're looking at.


"Mentors come in all forms and shapes and experiences. Please do go and find a mentor to enable your success."

Ask a lot of questions, be confident, and be clear on what you want to do. One way to find out, review where your potential gaps are. Gap analysis is trying to do a SWOT analysis, which will help you highlight your blind spots and help you to look for a mentor that will let you take those next steps forward. It will also help you find a holistic board of advisors as you're looking for growing either in your career, be it financial success, health, or any other aspects that are important to you.


"Ask a lot of questions, be confident, be clear on what you want to do."

"Do a SWOT analysis, which will help you highlight your blind spots and help you to look for a mentor that will let you take those next steps forward."

Mentors are very vested in people's success, and they're going to challenge you and push you to do more. And I think that is the neat thing about it. Find places where you can also give back to your mentor, helping them in exploring something that they're interested in or anything that you think would be relevant to them.


"Mentors are very vested in people's success, and they're going to challenge you and push you to do more."

And last, I want to do a call for action. Try to be a mentor yourself, even as you're going through a mentee relationship because you never know what impact you can have on someone's career. So please look at this, it doesn't matter what amount of experience you have, because you always have something unique that you bring to that relationship. So there are so many avenues, you could do it in the schools, you could do it through colleges or even with your peers. So try to give back and be a mentor and I hope as part of the takeaway from this, you definitely have a mentor or look at exploring to be a mentor and maybe even building a personal board of advisors.


"Try to be a mentor yourself, because you always have something unique that you bring to that relationship."

"Definitely have a mentor or look at exploring to be a mentor and maybe even building a personal board of advisors."

Wishing you all the best and hope you enjoyed the season. Look forward to seeing you in the next season, as we launch our discussion on Let's Talk about Money. We are going to be talking about finances and money and just the journey and listening to the experiences and talking to some experts as well.
