What does an Academic Dean, the “Oracle of Omaha”, one of Forbes’ “World’s 100 Most Powerful Women”, a Grammy Award winning vocalist, a glass sculptor, the first woman to run the Boston Marathon, and a National Baseball Hall of Fame inductee all have in common?—
They all had mentors.
"Because You Believed in Me is a luminous and poignant work about generosity and mentorship. This tribute to those who’ve inspired and nurtured us will serve as an inspiration to all who read it—the wisdom contained within is priceless!"
—Dave Isay, Founder of StoryCorps
Mentoring is an ancient practice that has become a modern strategy. These contemporary mentoring stories illustrate the diverse and familiar roles mentors may appear. The elegant wisdom of “it only takes one” is magnified in each contributor’s own words and personal story. A reminder that as parents, teachers, bosses, neighbors—we can be “the one” to share a new perspective, recognize possibility from impossibility or simply offer another step forward. Because You Believed in Me kindles hope by highlighting a few mentors that made a difference.
When you finish this book, give it to someone you who inspired you or someone you admire. This book is intended to spark conversation, build connections and foster gratitude for the person that shaped your thinking or influenced your path.
