What IS and IS NOT a Mentor

WHAT A MENTOR IS NOT:

1) Infallible...we are human

2) a Teacher or Guardian...we can only advise

3) Your Master, we can not tell you not to communicate or not to do something. Only you can decide.

4) Reference checker, only you should do that, only you know what you risk. We can show you how, but after that it is up to you.

5) Responsible for you...only you are responsible for your safety and decisions, once you have a Master then they become responsible as well, but you are your first guardian.


WHAT A MENTOR IS:

1) A listening ear, and a shoulder

2) Someone who can show you how to research, and learn safely. They can point out pitfalls but you will always find your own.

3) A caring friend.

4) Someone with their own experience who is willing to share that with you...not control or direct you by it.

5) Someone who can introduce you to a strange new world for you to explore...but who can not explore it for you.


Most of all a Mentor is there when you make those first steps with a new Dom, or new steps with an old one...ready to listen...and watch you take wing.
