What Makes Me A Great Mentor?

I was asked what makes me a great mentor so I thought I would share my answer here on my blog. (You can also read my story on my website https://krisrudarmel.com

I know the pain of living with low self-worth. I lived it for over 35 years. I also continually self-sabotaged, had extreme self-doubt and insecurities and so much FEAR it kept me in my comfort zone for years and years. 

I also drank alcohol for 39 years to cover my fears and insecurities (I recently just celebrated 3.2 years with recovery). For a lot of years, I struggled with body image issues and an eating disorder.

Personal Growth

I began my personal growth journey in 2005. It took me quite a while to transform because while working on myself, I was also assisting my husband in running his flood damage company. 

All my fears were wide open in my community as they all watched me grow and leap out of my comfort zone (I have hundreds of amazing words from my community I can share with you. Actually, I’ll share some below on this blog post).

I kept these words of praise from my community because they helped empower me to keep leaping out of my comfort zone and stretch beyond my upper limit. I keep them in my At-a girl file. 😊😊

Thank you,” Julie Cluff  Owner, the Joint Chiropractic 


Pam Juliano: “You are a brave soul. You recognized a change that you desired and engaged in a process to create a new world for yourself. What a fantastic gift to give to yourself. You were also brave enough to share your journey with online friends and those of us who knew very little of your struggles were inspired. More of us struggle with what I call feelings of scarcity than we want to admit. Your willingness to share has inspired more to take up the challenge of creating a new life. You inspire me to be mindful that as we grow in our professional goals the challenges we faced on a personal level are still there but we manage them more skillfully. We allow ourselves to recognize we have feelings of doubt but don’t let them squelch our dreams. Thank you for inspiring me today!”
