Notes & Quotes: Leslie Rose McDonald

On April 5, Leslie Rose McDonald led a discussion at Women Business Owners Connection on mentoring. Some at this meeting brought their members, while others brought their mentees. In the audience was a couple from Canada, who mentor a local businesswoman. Also in the audience was Peggy Wood, who -- along with her husband, Frank Wood -- is known for her activism.

Many words of wisdom were spoken by McDonald and others at the meeting, including:
  • Women are willing to help each other succeed.
  • We are continually mentoring and being mentored.
  • When the student is ready, the teacher will appear.
  • Success begets success.
  • Let the heart guide you.
  • As we face challenges, it is important to remember "you'll get through this too -- one step at a time."
  • It is okay to be afraid [of whatever you are trying to do], but do it anyway.
  • Mentors teach us all the things we need to know to be successful.
Two books were mentioned during the evening:
