What were your main reasons for becoming a Mentor?
I saw a lot of people falling off due to lack of motivation and no one reaching out to them to check on why. I felt that it is important to understand the situation, provide guidance and help mentees succeed.
How many students have you mentored?
This number is pretty high, hundreds of them. I reach out to anyone who has stopped being active in any stage of our program (Class, IPBC, JRP).
What’s your strategy to mentoring?
I always share my journey with my mentees to show them how challenging the program is. Of course, if it were easy, everyone would be doing it. My experience throughout the Colaberry program allows me to relate to mentees and help them through any roadblocks they might run into while on their own paths.
What strategies did you learn at the Tony Robbins Conference?
I will also be sharing with the mentees that nothing is easy in this life. You have to suffer to get to where you want to be and to get what you want. Talking about the Fire Walk that we experienced at the conference will definitely help me show the mentees that it’s important to stay focused and that when you put your mind on something, nothing can distract you from it.
Conditioning is a big factor as well. If you condition your body and mind in studying everyday throughout the program, it will become second nature to you and recalling information and problem solving will be easier. You won't feel the exhaustion or the fear of missing out when you do turn down invites from family and friends.
How does Colaberry's Mentorship Program benefit students?
The mentorship program allows not only the mentors to learn leadership skills for their own career but it also helps the students have an accountability partner throughout the program.
The mentor is able to share their personal stories and experiences when they went through the program and they can also share their current and past projects with their mentees, which helps their mentees to get a better understanding about how the production world is.
