Hello fellow Student Leaders. Today I secured coffee meetups with 2 of 3 of my mentors. Not a bad start to the year. It’s true I have 3 mentors. I’m a mentor hoarder. Only one of those three is from an official mentorship program (Prodigy Group mentorship), the other two are through contacts from past work or friends, and I keep in touch with them regularly because they’re business and/or project geniuses.

What does that mean for you? It means that I want you to have 2 to 3 mentors too. Each mentor will have a different attitude, skillset, work area that you can benefit from. Keep an eye open and don’t be afraid to just make someone a mentor by keeping in touch and meeting with them whether or not you have a particular problem to solve.

In November and December, SLL collected a few introductory essays from students that attended our November event at Temple Events and Catering. It was a great event that saw 14 students show up to learn about our 2013 program with new mentors. We’re working on partnering up the applicants right now. Thank you for your essay submissions if you were one of the students that sent them in to Jaryd.

Your short essays and introductions are a great way to choose the best mentors for you so that our program can help as much as possible. Please be patient as we set this up in January 🙂

Pictured: just three of our new mentee applicants. Look at those business brains just teeming with ideas and questions!



We’re having a board and mentor contact meeting on January 15th where we will finalize our partnerships, and then we’ll get in touch with you if you were an applicant.

If you are new to this blog then have a look around. Read a bit about the reason we exist.

Contact us if you’d like to know more. And thanks for dropping by!
