Mentoring has been an integral part of my entire life. From growing up watching my father mentor and shepherd others in life and business, to seeking out my first mentor, Roger Brook, to teach me how to be a good husband before I got married. I spent over 13 years in the Army Infantry being mentored to by various leaders in my chain of command each imparting different lessons and values into my life: leadership, strategy, professionalism, and courage to name a few.
The reason that I want to be a Two-Brain Mentor and be your mentor is that a new value had been instilled in me through this group, Help First. This concept is pivotal but goes beyond charity. Help First to me is about teaching others how to give out of their abundance and how to overcome fear to give when you may not feel so abundant. I want to be a mentor to spread that message to more small businesses and start-ups. So that I can teach others to spread their values and beliefs to increase the range of influence and cast a wider net of abundance.
So what are my intentions? Why do I want to be a mentor? Why would anyone want me to be their mentor? What does 80-year-old Josh say about becoming a mentor? He says, I want to serve, I want to come alongside all of these owners to push them forward in training, in strategy, in tactics, to make them reach places they never knew they could, to teach them to know themselves. And when we have accomplished those goals to teach them to pass on all they have learned to the next group.
