Hi there, I would love to tell you a little more about myself and why I decided to found the Rapid Mentoring program.
Well, much like the majority of people we see everyday, I worked away feverishly for years saving money and investing, loathing going to work each day and working for little more than the pay check I received; all with the ambition of someday having enough money so that I could ‘retire’ and do something that I was ‘more passionate about’.
The problem was that I had no idea what I was passionate about or how much it would cost to do it!
Long story short – turns out I am passionate about making sure the next generation don’t make the same mistakes that I did and providing the right advice to accelerate their career, as quickly and efficiently as possible.
The Rapid Mentoring Program contains all my pearls of wisdom, so you can achieve the most out of your working career, your finances and life in general. This program contains all the important details that somehow fell between the cracks of what schools, universities and employers taught you. I have researched, collaborated and interviewed hundreds of successful people and rolled their personal pearls of wisdom in with mine to give you the ultimate resource to take your life and career further, faster!
This is your chance to take a flying leap and accelerate your working career; living the life you want and the life you deserve.
Growing up in a small country town and being raised on the family farm, the values of hard work and integrity were instilled in me from a young age. Times were tough on the farm and there was a constant parental push to gain an education and not turn to farming as a profession.
After very little interest in secondary school, I didn’t want to get into a difficult University course and struggle the whole way through (although that didn’t work so well, as I ended up studying engineering…).
So at the age of 18 years, I went off to the big smoke and to University. After playing up a little too much in the early years, eventually 5 years later I graduated with first class honours.
I promptly started applying for jobs – having no idea where I wanted to work or what I wanted to do with my newly minted university degree. After (in my mind) totally botching up my first interview, I was offered a job and without even thinking about it or really knowing what I was getting into, I accepted.
Through the next 10 years or so, I worked for numerous high profile companies in various project management roles, including pushing through jobs I never really enjoyed. After getting married, having two kids, and paying off the family home and putting aside a small nest egg of investments.
Enough was enough! It was time to start searching for something more in my life! To search for what excited me, what motivated me and what I was passionate about.
Time for an epiphany…
Eventually I stumbled across an article written by a now dear friend, ‘What Has To Die – For You To Live Your Why?’, about finding your life’s purpose.
I contacted the author and through her guidance managed to have one of those epiphany kind of flashes of brilliance that to be honest, was always sitting right under my nose.
All the time I spent trying to think up one new fang-dangled idea after another, just so I could have a ‘purpose’, was essentially useless! It was useless because I suddenly realised that one of the few things I enjoyed about my career was offering support and guidance to the younger members of my team in a mentoring capacity.
The birth of the Rapid Mentoring program
Fast forward a few more months to the conception of the Rapid Mentoring program when I started developing the core content and putting the basics of the program together. I wanted to help people like you avoid the pitfalls we all seem to make in life and accelerate your career and life path to ultimately identify your passions.
The idea morphed a few times until I settled on the core content and started to work on the details. Then as things started to flow, my fingers couldn’t keep up with my brain and I started sketching things all over the place; I would come back later to embellish my ideas and stories. Then the Rapid Mentoring team came into play the material was pulled apart by psychologist, accountants, lawyers and leaders. Contributions started to pour in from leaders across the country with their pearls of wisdom enhancing the curriculum.
Ironically, all the hardships and trying times and all the valuable lessons I encountered during my life have provided the very canvas that enables me to pass on my experiences to you. Talk about taking a negative and turning it around to find the positives!
These experiences, hardships and knowledge are my pearls of wisdom to you.
Why am I sharing all of these secrets?
I hope that in the future, when someone asks you about your secret to success, the Rapid Mentoring program will spring to your mind.
