Back in 2009 AJ and Melissa Leon helped build martynsibley.com and mentored me through blogging, entrepreneurship and chasing my dreams.
This month at Purple Goat Agency we made our biggest deal yet. I messaged AJ to tell him about this particular milestone. True to his warmth and kindness, he sent me this bottle of premium champagne, to acknowledge the moment. Even Sunny photo bombed me from all the excitement!
Two thoughts come to mind that I’d like to share.
One is the importance of having role models, guides and mentors. We sometimes let pride stop us from accepting our limits and seeking help. When we let go and allow people in our lives to support us – well let’s just say awesome shit happens!
Secondly, and I’m a little ashamed to say this, I hadn’t really stopped to appreciate this milestone for myself. I got straight back in to the endless to-do list. That is until this gift arrived. So my other realisation is to always allow ourselves to celebrate achievement. Yes, everything else has to be dealt with. But without pause for gratitude, everything else is kinda pointless.
Finally, I’d love to hear about your mentors and how you acknowledge your milestone achievements?
