Last night I announced to my family I was planning to runaway with Tom Ford. Okay – so I’m not really running away with Tom Ford, but a girl can dream, right?
This fashion designer has been hands-down the inspiration I’ve needed in my 2015 life. Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to board our invisible Wonder Woman jets bound for London or wherever your inspiration lives to spend time and hear the words straight from the mouths of those who inspire us? Just to listen and absorb would hardly be something to pass up.
This made me start thinking about mentoring.
Inspiration for me comes from creative, work-based thinkers, but here is where I need help. When looking for a place to peel off into new ideas, like-minded mentors are hard to find. Some are too kooky, some are too rigid, some are too mean, some are too sappy, and some are just full of sh*t.
Like-mindedness doesn’t mean that you agree on everything, however it does mean that you and another person agree on the big overall visions. The rest is just conversation, relationship building, and business plans.
How we actualize our constellations is partly based and whom we choose to help us connect the stars and how we go about the connection process. Too abstract? Ok. Find people who think like you and start firing off questions in order to get your plans into reality – oh, and always remember to smile!
