We have all heard the saying, “It is who you know, not what you know!” Rona Borre, CEO and Founder of Instant Alliance, a Chicago-based staffing agency, also known as the Chicago Tech Connector, has some advice on the art of mentoring and how to find that perfect mentor who will have a positive impact on your life. Imagine the real-life scenario of needing to accomplish a task or connect with others, while not really knowing where to start … panic ensues and often, valuable time is lost heading in the wrong direction or down the incorrect path. Engage with potential mentors and be the mentor we all need! “Being a mentor keeps me mentally challenged and, often times, I am able to take away a new perspective on a situation that I needed guidance,” said Rona Borre.

Reasons Why You Should Be a Mentor:

• You can learn from your mentee

• Helping other others succeed is a way of giving back

• In the end you have a new professional and sometimes personal relationship
