As many of you know, mentorship is very important to me. I firmly believe that what we say and do in our lives can change the life course of another in ways we cannot even imagine. This belief stems from personal, transformative experience.
When I was starting out, it was my dear friend, the designer, Vicente Wolfe who took me under his wing and gave me the chance of a lifetime; the chance to change my life whole doing something I loved. In the three decades that have passed, I have lived a life full of incredible highs and challenging lows, met wonderful clients and colleagues, seen the world. I have also been deeply blessed to have experienced what it feels like to make the dreams of others come true while living out my own. I am still humbled every time I think about this.
No matter where I go or what I do, I always remember how I felt living in Panama with only a dream and I never forget what it felt like to be a failed businessman, in my 30’s, struggling to buy a meal.
Today, I would like to ask that you nominate a mentor for a spotlight. I will choose someone this weekend and we’ll profile them In an upcoming blog. Please be sure to include a link to your site and a few sentences as to how this person changed your life.
With Blessings and Gratitude,
