Quirky Mentoring offers bespoke mentoring for your personal and professional needs. Prices vary according to your individual circumstances and needs, as well as the medium in which the mentoring takes place. With Quirky Mentoring Reports, you will a receive a report with advise, guidance and recommendations for how to improve your business and take it to the next level, often without Sandra needing to speak to you, because all correspondence is done via email. No payment is taken for initial email inquiry or consultation. Full payment is required in full, before the report is produced for you.
With Quirky Mentoring Reports, after an initial email inquiry, an email consultation will occur to establish what help, advise and guidance you need, and if both parties are agreeable to work together. Depending on the type of advise sought, you could be asked to fill in a questionnaire, in detail, about yourself and your business. If you are asked to fill in a questionnaire, Sandra will use both her creative and analytical skills to see the overall picture of your business and how you can improve it. When you give her a clear indication of your goals and vision, whether it’s big or small, she helps you to map a plan to achieve those, that you can often start to put into action immediately. It’s up to you to follow through with any appropriate actions after considering her recommendations. The recommendations Sandra provides, are to act as a guide, and are no way set in stone, as with any mentoring relationship, it’s up to you to decide what’s right for you and your business. If Sandra doesn’t believe she can help you in any way, she will be honest and say so. In the event this occurs, Sandra may signpost you to someone else with the relevant knowledge and experience that you need.
Sandra’s Quirky Mentoring is based on a very trustful relationship. Although providing a service, Sandra firmly believes in mutual support and care between the mentor and mentee, with a degree or equality, despite some differentiation. Both the Mentee and the Mentor, have to believe in the Mentee’s business and in each other, for it to be an effective relationship. Whether this is a one time only report, or ongoing mentoring, in person, Skype or otherwise. Therefore, open and honest communication is a must. The mentee must not withhold any vital information, that the Mentor needs in order to give the best recommendations. If at any point, either party is no longer comfortable with the other, it is important to be honest and say about it, so the situation can be resolved.
Sandra and Quirky Mentoring, operates an equality and diversity policy. It does not matter what your background, class, ethnicity or sexual orientation is, or if you have a disability, or special needs, if she feels she can help you, then she will.
She and Quirky Mentoring has an ethical policy, that Sandra will only mentor people, whom she believes she can advance their business in some way, however big or small. She recognises that sometimes, it’s the smallest things that hold people back from moving on to the next stage in their business. So whether you want to think big or small, if you want a little information, or a lot, there is a tailored made bespoke Quirky Mentoring service for you.
Sandra will never offer any legal and financial advise, as she is not qualified to do so. For those, you must seek help from a lawyer, solicitor or financial advisor, whichever is appropriate. For medical advise, you should consult a doctor.
