What Participants Are Saying ...

Jessica Fumo, Visionworks of America, ConnexFM Member
“When given the opportunity to participate in a mentorship pilot program with ConnexFM, I was thrilled to join as a mentee. I got questioned as to why a mentee and maybe re-think my decision and be a mentor. My reason is...we all have room to grow, to learn more, every single day. I want more. I have unofficially and honestly naturally, been a mentor over the years and loved it but this time, I wanted more for me. I wanted to focus on being more strategic and becoming a better leader which led me to my now mentor, Kenneth Jones! I was able to choose who I thought would be a great fit for me. If you are thinking about being a mentor or mentee, I recommend you go for it! Don't hold back on your personal or professional growth!” – Jessica Fumo, Visionworks of America, ConnexFM Member

“Mentorship is one of the most important aspects of personal and professional development. A mentor is there to guide you through the obstacles that inevitably arise while growing in your position and industry - not only acting as a sounding board, but a teacher. Mentorship is a rewarding experience for both parties involved.” – Jenna Dominguez, Branded-Group, ConnexFM Member
