Mentoring Case Study
Mentoring Case Study with Alex McCarthy Coaching
How did you get in to mentoring?
I have always had this burning desire to help people but struggled for years to find how I could do this. When I started my first business in 2018, I found myself needing support in knowing the next steps for me to take and also having someone to hold me accountable with my goals and what I wanted to achieve. I have now worked with many different mentors and coaches, all of whom I have learnt something different from and have given me such valuable advice and support. I truly wouldn’t have the business and life that I do today without each of them. Being mentored myself is what inspired me to start doing it and has led to my business, Alex McCarthy Coaching, being the successful mentoring and coaching business that it is today.
What have you got back from mentoring?
Mentoring gives me so much fulfilment and purpose. Getting to be part of people’s life journeys and helping them work towards their goals is the most rewarding experience. I’m so grateful that I get to wake up every day and do something I’m passionate about mentoring.
Would you recommend it to others?
I highly recommend mentoring. Societally I think we find it difficult to ask for help and we try to achieve so much on our own. Whereas the truth is we are so much stronger and more successful when we invest in getting the help and support we need to get us to where we want to be. Be mentored by someone who is already walking the path you want to follow, allow them to lead the way and keep you on track.
Any tips?There are so many mentors out there, it’s important to take the time to find someone who is a good fit for you and has relevant expertise that relates what you’re looking to achieve.
