Check Our New PRESS RELEASE for January as National Mentoring Month

http://www.prlog.org/12416772-january-is-national-mentoring-month-find-student-to-mentor-and-check-out-our-two-related-blogs.html

Start 2015 with a purpose: to help someone who really needs your special help in any way. Mentoring Power goes much beyond education, leadership, learning --- it can in some cases help save someone's life. Call on a neighbor you have not seen in awhile, help a child to read, babysit for a Mom that needs some extra help, encourage someone with a progressive illness to eat, exercise, or get the medical help needed. This is the "real" POWER of MENTORING.

Did you know that January is National Mentoring Month?

My birthday is on February 20, five days after Valentine's Day, but something more important than my birthday (which I am most lucky to have this year) is National Mentoring Month going on right now, in January!

Below is a link describing January as National Mentoring Month! If you have not read "Mentoring Power" or its secret sister publication, "Reflections & Connections: Personal Journeys Through the Life Sciences," I suggest reading them NOW! http://www.nationalmentoringmonth.org/ Do you want to make a difference, then go out and mentor someone or write for this blog. Have you worked with your children, tutored a child, volunteered as a sports leader, these are all examples of mentoring.

Since I had my unfortunate and unexpected experience, I am limited to walking around the track at our local high school for one mile, this is 10-11 circles around depending on whether I walk in the inner or outer areas. I watch the coaches, some of which I am convinced are volunteers after school working with kids. It is incredible. I was a tutor once and maybe that is my calling, I am not sure yet, but I miss my kids from k-12 that I worked with for 10 years part-time from my full time duties wherever. The kids filled a void in my life. I miss the kids I taught.

If you feel the same as I do and can make the time mentor while you can and do not forget to get your copy of "Reflections & Connections" at http://amzn.to/1vLGG6k and "Mentoring Power" at http://amzn.to/1yhCAFx -- check the photo on Mentoring Power and "Be Someone Who Matters to Someone Who Matters."

Telementoring

Something I have bave been very interested in and participated in on a limited scale is telementoring. There is an interesting article on what Akron Children's Hospital is doing in this area at https://www.akronchildrens.org/cms/publication/technology-brings-mentoring-into-operating-rooms/index.html

A direct quote from the cited article:

"“Telementoring allows physicians to perform new techniques safely by communicating remotely with an experienced advisor,” said Todd Ponsky, MD, a pediatric surgeon at Akron Children’s Hospital who specializes in minimally invasive surgery."

Dr. Todd Ponsky emphasizes:

"The telementor is intended to provide an extra set of eyes and ears, not to serve as an essential part of the surgery’s success,” Dr. Ponsky stressed."

Dr. Tod Ponsky is the son of Dr. Ponsky who was chairman of our library committee at Mt. Sinai Hospital for many years. He operated on my husband when he had his first hernia long ago and Dr. Ponsky senior patented inventions he made for minimally invasive surgical techniques. Mt. Sinai Medical Center closed in 2000, but shots of the website remain on the Internet Archive's Way Back Machine.

Although we did not include telementoring and medical type mentoring at http://www.amazon.com/Mentoring-Power-Sustainable-Economic-Innovation-ebook/dp/B00P9GZ2LM "Mentoring Power," it is my understanding that Reflections & Connection: Personal Journeys Through the Life Sciences IV may tackle the subject. Volume 2 in the series includes health care. The entire book, including Volumes 1 & 2 is an incredible bargain in Ebook format on amazon.com at http://lifescientists.blogspot.com

The Secret Relationship of "Mentoring Power" and "Reflections & Connections: Personal Journeys Through the Life Sciences"

STATS FOR REFLECTIONS & CONNECTIONS: PERSONAL JOURNEYS THROUGH THE LIFE SCIENCES:

There is a secret connection between two books on amazon.com, which are very closely related.

Reflections & Connections: Personal Journeys Through the Life Sciences is the basis for the short read, "Mentoring Power." The idea of writing "Mentoring Power," being the brain child of Dr. William R. Sharp who wanted to write a blog post. How "Mentoring Power" became a short read on Amazon.com is a long story, but the secret is, it is based on Reflections.



I wrote early on via the Reflections blog at http://lifescientists.blogspot.com that Reflections would become a classic and it looks like it is well on its way!

The stats of this morning are as follows on amazon.com for the ebook version, an incredible bargain at $3.99 for more than 1300 total pages of chapters written by scientists about their life experience. If you can not find it here, what you are looking for probably does not exist per the peaks and pitfalls of being a scientist.

Amazon Best Sellers Rank: #343,476 Paid in Kindle Store (See Top 100 Paid in Kindle Store)

#75 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Nonfiction > Science > Biological Sciences > Biotechnology

#84 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Nonfiction > Professional & Technical > Professional Science > Biological Sciences > Biotechnology

Keep an eye on this book, it will see much action, and keep one reading for a very long time! However, it need not be read cover to cover, one can pick out chapters of interest and contact the authors -- check the back of the book for contact information. I am sure they will respond to your questions and/or inquiries!

Mentoring Power at http://amzn.to/1yhCAFx

"Mentoring Power" may be of interest to @StudentsFirst check the short read at http://amzn.to/1yhCAFx

The short ebook can be read in an hour and includes concise career advice and many success stories.

Mentoring is key to innovation and includes complex networks.

Interesting, however, that those within a "mentoring" network often tend NOT to let others in to their private network (everything always seems to be private from funding sources to agendas). If you disagree, please step in and join this blog. I might be playing the role of the devil's advocate.

Have you had a great mentor? If so, please detail herein as it may help others?

I may not have had a great mentor, but I sure have an incredible internist who has saved my life twice. I think he would also be my mentor as he advises me when I do not want to hear what he has to say AND he responds immediately. Yes, I only bother him if I think it is serious and I think I owe him my life --- and yes, he went to the same college I did, THE Ohio State University, graduated in my class and I remember him in biochemistry class so very long ago. That our paths crossed so many years in different cities is a miracle, I think.

Mentors are often found in people around us, mine happens to be an incredible physician who knows me better than I know myself.

If medicine is your goal, find an incredible mentor who can also serve as a role model.

See me on the cover of the book, I may see this little girl graduate from preschool to kindergarten because of my doctor mentor!
