This is what we talked about on The Invisible Mentor Blog this week: Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women, Thomas Jefferson, 3rd US President, and Deborah Nixon, Founder, Trust Learning Solutions and MyMoneyMindset.
Adventures in Learning
Having mentors is an excellent way to accelerate your career, but in their absence, invisible mentors are great substitutes. However, you have to know exactly what you are trying to get from mentors, you have to know what you are trying to achieve in life, and then you have to practice reflective self-mentoring to get to where you need to be.
Booked for Mentoring
Little Women is a story about a traditional family – father, mother and four daughters. All families, traditional and non-traditional, form a community, which teaches its members how to function in the broader community. Life is very busy today, and family members often do not have enough time to sit down together. Little Women reminds us how important it is for family members to communicate with each other. The March family had dinner together, at which time they would talk about how their day went.
Wisdom of Life Profile
A lawyer by profession, Thomas Jefferson drafted the American Declaration of Independence. His biggest fait accompli was skilfully negotiating with France to purchase the state of Louisiana in 1803, which nearly doubled the size of the United States. Jefferson was also an inventor, and he is credited with helping to define the duties and regulations of the United States Patent Office.
Interviews for Mentoring

Nixon believes that when something bad happens to you, something good can grow out of it. Here are Part I and Part II of Deborah Nixon’s interview.
