Where1777 Fifth AvenueSan Diego, CA 92101
Focus: Mentor women (who have barriers to employment) in sales and customer service
It is tempting to solve their problems. This is not mentoring. By solving their problems you take away their opportunity to become educated, and their ability to solve problems for themselves. People learn best when they face new challenges, in addition, they gain the skills to solve other, more difficult, problems. It builds self-esteem and the belief they can handle any situation once they are on their own. (n.d.). Retrieved from http://www.streetdirectory.com/travel_guide/print_article.php?articleId=22058
