Great article and always good to remember those who have been our mentors and those we can now mentor.

Interesting article which is a true story of our lifes.
I think that I met my first mentor in my primary school - it was my physics teacher.
In those years, I did not consider her as a mentor but now I know that she thaught me a lot. I think that in plenty of times we realize that somebody was our mentor only after quite some time. Unfortunatelly, sometimes, we don't have the opportunity to thank this person anymore.

I have always enjoyed mentoring, especially new youngsters that are desperate to learn, but are daunted by the learning process. I don't remember too many mentors, and had a habit of doing it 'my way', but it's never too late to learn, even from your kids, so I thank them.

Wow - powerful article about all the mentor-ship opportunities out there they are not all formal realtionships but what you can gain from them. Amazing. Made me really think about who I mentor and how and who I should look for more guidance.
