Business mentoring for new celebrants

Business mentoring for new celebrants

This is where you'll find all my news and thoughts about being a Celebrant and Mentor, as well as snippets of the feedback that people kindly send to me. If you have any comments, suggestions or even your own personal testimonial to share, then I'd love to hear from you.

You can also keep up to date with what's happening right now through my social media channels, as I'm always sharing interesting pieces of information over there too.

That final act of ‘giving’ – just a wonderful gift to leave behind.

How would you feel if you found your Mum and Dad’s old love letters?  I’ve sat with lots of sons and daughters who’ve just done that. It leaves them both amused and embarrassed at what they’ve found.  Some chuckle and want to put them straight back where they got them from because they feel like

Just treading water in your business? A Mentor can help show you the way!

As someone who’s always had a Mentor and a Coach at their side, I completely understand the value of the roles.  That’s why offering these services to new and developing Celebrants is so important to me.  I know the difference they can make to a sink or swim scenario. A good Mentor and Coach will
