You’ve probably heard mentoring can double your chances of staying in business, but did you know it can also change the way you think?

Here are three things I learned from being mentored:

1. I will never know everything – and that’s ok

I thought to make it in this world I should absolutely know the answer to everything. As you can imagine, I failed at this miserably a million times over. When I got a mentor who showed me the blind spots I was missing in my business, I realized that it’s ok to not know everything. In fact, when you know that you don’t know, (like young children) you are more open to learning and seeing more possibilities because you aren’t cutting yourself off from new information.

Online video can communicate your story and message, share your heart, and express how you truly feel about something in under 60 seconds. No other medium can do that in such a concise, visually engaging way, and it is the most powerful first impression you can make if you can’t meet face-to-face. That’s why we work with the power of video: to capture our clients’ stories and launch them into the digital world.

There is a crucial question that everyone asks before becoming a blogger – Which blogging platform should I use… Blogger, WordPress or something else? My very first blog was called “Chrissie’s Film Project Blog” and was written in 2005/2006 when I was working on “What Girls Are Made Of?” my Master’s thesis project. That experience gave me the blogging bug. I started with BlogSpot (before Google swooped in and changed it to Blogger).

So after a few years blogging with Blogger I signed up for a WordPress account as well so that I could test its features.
