My mentor is coming to visit me. I contacted her, sight unseen, because she has a shop in another state that is exactly what I envisioned for my own shop. I paid her fee. She said, "I value my time at $100 an hour." And she asked for a 3 hour retainer. I sent it. It was the best money I ever spent. She is invested in my success. She shares connections, ideas on how to handle sticky situations, she listens with delight to my stories. She is making the effort to see my place. I feel honored. I'm blessed.
