About the book: My Hall of Mentors: Lessons learned along a journey of success
Success is a journey we're all on and it looks different from moment to moment for each of us. The best way to learn, grow and succeed is to look at those who've gone before us and ask those who currently find themselves where we want to be. Then apply their lessons to our lives. After all, the best way to fail forward, is to not fail in the same places others have.
A great way to learn from others is through mentorship. Not everyone has the chance to sit down one-on-one with CEO's, self-made millionaires or guru's who've taken on social issues, but eavesdropping on a conversation with one of them does just as well.
In My Hall of Mentors, Ntsiki Mkhize offers just that. Sitting with mentors from the lecture halls to executive board rooms, she brings us close to sound advise from some of her mentors over a period of seven years. "While most people were partying throughout varsity, I started a business and found mentors to help me achieve my goals. The path wasn't clear at first, but it was better defined as I went, with each conversation I had with each mentor". Not all business, the lessons learned tie into personal life, character and perspective as they unfold and connect the dots through the eyes of a successful young woman from South Africa, learning to take on life one goal at a time.
