Join Necole Kane & Pauleanna Reid TONIGHT For Mentor Mondays

"I don't think I would be the woman I am today if it wasn't for certain individuals who believed in me on days when it was hard to believe in myself."

Inspiration

"Mentors have played an important role in my life since my college days. Nothing beats the feeling of having someone you can call during those dark times when you just feel like giving up or during the best of times when you are celebrating a victory. I don't think I would be the woman I am today if it wasn't for certain individuals who believed in me on days when it was hard to believe in myself." - Pauleanna Reid

Ladies, let's step into some facts: the world of business is made for white men.

Which is why it is imperative for us, individually, and in businesses, to seek mentorship. The survival rate of a female entrepreneur declines by 50 percent if she doesn't have a mentor. And even more shocking, according to INC Magazine, 70 percent of mentored businesses survive more than 5 years, essentially doubling the rate for non-mentored small businesses.

And someone who can directly attest to that, is serial entrepreneur, Pauleanna Reid.

Reid, who has been dropping gems each week in our members community to help our xoTribe achieve a mindset equipped for success, has gone from a college dropout with over $50,000 of debt, to running a six-figure high-functioning business. When she's not interviewing some of the nation's most successful entrepreneurs as a Senior Contributor at Forbes, you can catch her ghostwriting books for high-profile celebrities and CEOs, and mentoring hundreds of women as they transition in their careers through her New Girl on the Block mentor program.

She fiercely has the inside scoop on how to get your brand in the right rooms with the right people. Reid has six mentors that guide her in different areas: five being women of color, one being a white man who tells her what happens around the table and in the boardroom.

She knows how to position herself for the right information and she is always looking to share what has taken her years to figure out.

And you know here at xoNecole, we are all about seeing our ladies be the absolute best version of themselves.

Tonight, we will be hosting a special fireside chat and mentor Q&A session featuring xoNecole founder, Necole Kane, and Pauleanna Reid. In this virtual session, you'll learn more about how Pauleanna transitioned out of her 9 to 5, and started her entrepreneurial journey, as well as the best way to craft your elevator pitch, and the best approach to finding a mentor while also making sure that the relationship is mutually beneficial.

We’ve all been there: Exhausted, lacking motivation, on edge, or simply not feeling like working at all. And we might have even used up all of our sick days, not to rest from a cold or injury, but just to get a bit of relief from those job or business responsibilities. Sometimes, you're not able to shake that nagging feeling of gloom, eventually finding yourself in a toxic pattern of unhealthy habits and behaviors. There's a larger issue that goes way beyond just needing a break.

There seems to be a big question mark over our heads when it comes to sex during pregnancy. When ironically enough, the same way the baby got in is the same way it’s going to get out (in a lot of ways). A wise person said that to me – I just can’t recall who, so consider this to be a shoutout to a real one because in all actuality it’s true.
