As a professional speaker about leadership and as a coach and judge of entrepreneurial business competitions, author Elizabeth Ghaffari found that those seeking "a mentor, coach, or sponsor" often had no idea where to find such support-or knew what they needed to receive from such a relationship. In this book, readers will learn how to recognize invaluable mentorship and guidance all around them-from family members, at school, at work, in recreational and social settings, in the media and politics, and even from those who have left us. The true-life stories and testimonials presented will inspire and motivate you to endure, succeed, and prevail. This fun-to-read book contains the definitive answer to the question "How can I find a mentor?" as well as unique insights that young women can apply to transition into becoming successful leaders and define long-term success for themselves. Similarly, readers with more career experience will derive affirmation, motivation, and encouragement from peers as they chart their own leadership course.
