Guest Post: The Value of Having a Mentor

By Belinda Jacobson, Editor, Parties, Pearls and Being Precious

 

I’m an ambitious person. Anyone who knows me will confirm that, and I make no apologies for it. I’m determined and driven, and I don’t let obstacles get in the way of getting where I want to be.

Or maybe you don’t blog and don’t plan to – you will still get loads from my chat with Jac about content marketing and building your tribe.
