We had a great time networking live with NAPW members at our eChapter replay yesterday!

As an added bonus, we collected some memorable quotes from our event to serve as an inspirational guide on your journey to find or become a mentor.


“None of us succeeds alone. We all have someone who helps us as a mentor.”
Star Jones, NAPW President


Star shared some “acrostic” advice:

M: Mentor and Meeting
E:  Establish goals for the relationship and Express your gratitude
N: Network. Network, network network for a suitable mentor
T:  Build Trust
O: One is not enough
R: Respect. Be Respectful of your mentor’s time

“With mentoring, ask people to help. Leave your ego at the door – you’re going to learn something. People want to see your success. People want to help you….If you admire them, go up and ask them. You may not agree with them, but listen.”

Dorcas Roehrs, NAPW VIP Member; President and CFO, Barber’s Farm Distillery

“You should maybe have five or six different mentors, depending on
what you want to get out of life.”

Lauren Nikai-Harry, NAPW VIP Member and CEO, Klick Consulting

“If you want to be an influence in someone’s life…reach out for a cup of coffee, share your stories and open that door to someone. Open that door…I’m learning so much from that experience.”

“You are not ready to mentor someone if you are not comfortable or easy with who you are.”

Sarah Soliman, NAPW VIP Member and President and CEO, Soliman Productions
