“To be a father is a lot of investment (Time, Emotional, Spiritual, Financial, Etc) and this is why I am cautious who takes a seat at my table of mentorship. I believe Mentoring is essential and can define a person’s future. The best or the worst thing that can happen to anyone is the mentor they get because your mentor influences, imparts, impacts and in more ways than one, defines you.
I want to teach and mentor not for the heck of it but so I can possibly reproduce “mini me’s” who would pay it forward by mentoring others which is why I burst with pride when I look at people like @alibabagcfr and see the mentor he has become to many young people, and every time he calls me “OSE” or “BROS” my heart fills with joy knowing that I am a little part of his amazing journey. To be a mentor/father comes with its burdens as you have to take on the unappreciative, self entitled ones who have no grateful bones in their bodies which is why I have learned not to do it for the gratitude from the mentees but for the satisfaction it brings me. This year, 2017, I’ll be “adopting” a lot of young people, from my intern search and beyond and I want to say that, You do NOT have to be talented to be my son/daughter, you just have to be committed. Do not major in the minor, concentrate on achieving “the major” because the minor is in the major not the other way round… TO BE CONTINUED”
