Natalie’s 10 Day Freedom Plan Blog Challenge Day 6

Day 6 : “Finding your Tribe”

Choosing a mentor is a very important part of your career. My favorite thing about mentors is that you can have as many as you want. You can have a different mentor for every aspect of your life, not just work. A mentor is someone you can look to for guidance and leadership. They help you when you are feeling lost and need advice on what path to take.

I have spent the last year working full time in the salon. I am now focusing on blogging. When I was in the salon my mentors were my boss/owner, Stephanie Brinkerhoff and my stylist friend Melissa. I drew inspiration and knowledge from these three in different way. My boss, Kristi, I worked with one on one everyday. I was able to pick her brain and ask her for help. She was the owner of the salon I worked at and I admired the leap she took from being a stylist to opening a salon as well as her cutting, coloring and up-do skills. Stephanie Brinkerhoff was not as easily accessible as my boss that I saw daily. Stephanie is a very, very talented bridal stylist. She started her career in 2007 and now travels the world to teach and style weddings. Melissa is a friend that I have known for about seven years. I met her at the first salon that I worked at while I was in college. We started at the salon within a few weeks of each other and I have watched her grow to a top stylist at the salon. I draw different types of inspiration from each mentor and my relationship with each is very different, as well.

Now that I am getting into blogging I am starting to add to my mentor portfolio. My main mentor right now is Jaclyn Hill. She is a makeup artist and entrepreneur that has created her own empire. Jaclyn has her own YouTube channel as well as being a beauty and fashion blogger.

Jaclyn inspires me because she paved her way from the bottom to become her own brand. She lives the life that I aspire to live. She travels and does what she loves. She is passionate about her work and truly enjoys what she does everyday.
