“The rewards from being a mentor are amazing.” That from 2009 Futurpreneur Canada's National and Alberta Outstanding Mentor Award winner, Rosemarie Enslin. Rosemarie first became a mentor after attending a Futurpreneur Canada dinner as a guest of one of her public relations clients. As soon as the plates were cleared, Rosemarie signed on to become a mentor. Speaking of her pride in her two proteges, Rosemarie says she tries to help them by speaking the truth – talking about her fears, challenges and failures as well as her success during her entrepreneurial career.
Calling mentorship a truly rewarding experience that she continues to gain from, Rosemarie encourages others to become involved with Futurpreneur Canada for the opportunity to watch a great idea turn into a business, and to watch young entrepreneurs grow as they tackle many of the same issues they did. “Maybe I can help a few young women and men – who are facing all the terrifying hurdles of simply starting their own company and learning how to sell their services or products – to have a little more confidence in their own choices. I promise them they can call me in the middle of the night, that I’ll root for them and I’ll stand behind them. I promise them that if it doesn’t work, it will be the best learning experience they've ever had.”
“Being a mentor is a really rewarding experience and I urge people to consider becoming one. I have become a better manager and achieved better business results because of Futurpreneur Canada. I never expected to gain so much for being a mentor. I thought I was going to do the giving. Being a Futurpreneur Canada is one of the smartest things I have ever done!”
