Why Mentoring?

Mentoring sessions provide you with the time out from your everyday activities to focus on progressing your career or business.

The sessions are particularly useful during transitional periods of life and business. Mentoring sessions give you the opportunity to manage your own learning so you can maximise your potential, develop new skills and improve your performance.

When you're not sure which way to turn Lynette’s business experience, understanding and empathy will help you to find the right direction for you and your business.

She helps you to believe in yourself and boosts your confidence so you can move forward. She asks questions and challenges your thoughts and actions, while providing guidance and encouragement.

Being mentored by Lynette will allow you to explore new ideas in a safe and supported environment.

If you want to become more self aware and take responsibility for the direction that you are heading opposed to leaving it all to chance – mentoring can help.

Mentee Feedback:

I have had the pleasure of working with Lynette Palmen as my mentor/coach for several months now. The main reason I engaged Lynette was to help me sort out all the thoughts and ideas that were jumbled up in my mind, and start getting into some proper action. I have two businesses, and four young children, and so I need someone who really 'gets' me, and who can make suggestions that will streamline my businesses and make my life easier!

Throughout my time with Lynette, she has proven to be a trusted and knowledgeable partner. She is empathetic in the hard times, and yet challenges me to think outside the square and implement my new ideas to take my businesses to the next level.  And, although she's always on hand to help me see the funny side of situations, she has a 'tough love' style which works really well for me, as she is someone I respect and whom I know has 'been there and done it all before'.

I would highly recommend Lynette's mentoring service to anyone who is looking to take their business to the next level, or who simply wants someone to support them through their current stage.

I've known Lynette Palmen (from a distance) for many years. I've always admired her candour, get-on-with-it attitude, and nous, so she was my logical choice as a mentor.

I found her holistic approach intriguing at first, and then very practical. As a successful copywriter my work includes helping others to advance their businesses, however, I was "very stuck" when it came to advancing my own. "Lack of time" was really just my way of saying "where to begin?!".

If I'm not sure about things (hence am avoiding them!), Lynette works through them with me at that moment; systematically, pragmatically. Her guidance and encouragement — delivered with humour and bluntness — have helped me to believe in myself again. And believe that I really can take that next step in success. Her words are strong, yet gentle, and always, always, imbue the greatest excitement of what is within me.

Life has certainly changed and I credit a lot of that to you and the time I spend with you. That lid that was on my success has flown off well and truly.  I tell people now that if they want to get on with it, come and see you, it was the best thing I ever did.  You are an amazing woman and I am glad you are somewhere in my story.

One on one mentoring sesssions with Lynette are a great help to my business. It refocuses me on where I am going instead of spending time reacting to the day to day events.

Lynette, I would like to say thank you so much for the Networking & Self-Promotion Boot Camp last week. I was very impressed with your knowledge, approach, advice, focus, drive and imagination.  I can see why you are so successful in what you have achieved and there are certainly some qualities there that I need to try and emulate in my own way.
