Description

Because You Believed in Me uses stories of real people-such as Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Claude Monet and Eugene Boudin, Ulysses S. Grant and Abraham Lincoln, Martin Luther King Jr. and Benjamin Elijah Mays-to capture the elusive qualities and proven benefits of mentoring relationships. The value of mentoring, tested by time, becomes apparent in their stories. What if Eugene Boudin hadn't encouraged Claude Monet to paint the outdoors? Would someone else have inspired another person with similar talent to abandon studio painting and venture into the beauty of landscapes? Mentors expand boundaries and open worlds of possibilities. Even brilliant people need heroes. The emulation of another can be a catalyst for self-discovery. A mentor's example, along with questions and shared experiences, helps prot‚g‚s clarify their paths, crystallize their values, and experience the freedom to explore unimagined vistas.Designed to inspire and uplift, Because You Believed in Me highlights the spirit of mutual generosity in the mentor-prot‚g‚ relationship. This wonderful collection is an invitation to reach out, renew, and remember the powerful influences of unique individuals. Because You Believed in Me uses stories of real people-such as Susan B.
