MENTORING with Jennie Gorman is about learning and become aware of new skills that you and your business requires for you to be more successful.
There is a difference between being coached and being mentored. Coaching is about supporting you to create the success you want yourself whereas mentoring is about upskilling you for your future. By becoming aware of what you need to learn either yourself or for someone else working in your business is essential.
Mentoring can be in a one on one or group situation. This is very dependent on you and where you are at personally.
Mentoring is a mutually beneficial relationship which involves a more experienced person helping a less experienced person to achieve their goals.
Wikidpedia says: Mentorship is a personal developmental relationship in which a more experienced or more knowledgeable person helps to guide a less experienced or less knowledgeable person. The mentor may be older or younger, but have a certain area of expertise. It is a learning and development partnership between someone with vast experience and someone who wants to learn.
“Mentoring” is a process that always involves communication and is relationship based, but its precise definition is elusive. One definition of the many that have been proposed, is
Mentoring is a process for the informal transmission of knowledge, social capital, and the psychosocial support perceived by the recipient as relevant to work, career, or professional development; mentoring entails informal communication, usually face-to-face and during a sustained period of time, between a person who is perceived to have greater relevant knowledge, wisdom, or experience (the mentor) and a person who is perceived to have less (the protégé)”.
Does this sound like something that appeals to you?
Why have a mentor?
Do you :
- Find it difficult to understand and learn what skills you need to build good sound relationships?

Relationship Building & Understanding the Ladder of Loyalty
One-on-One & Group Mentoring with Jennie Gorman
Jennie Gorman, known as ‘The People Connector’, is a supporter of entrepreneurs, both solo and SME professionals. Her aim is to teach the art of successful business relationships by developing greater skills for long lasting results by relationship marketing, networking, communicating, social media and referral based business strategies.
Her long-term success lies within her extraordinary network of people that offer skills, talent, resources. Her unique and natural gift is to bring people together to create the perfect fit and ultimately change people’s lives through relationship building and trusted communication.
In 1989, Jennie started her first business ‘My Connexions’ as a promoter, then in 1993 opened a Personal Development and Natural Therapies Centre at Clayfield. ‘Connexions Unlimited’ commenced in 1995 , moving to business education, promoting national and international speakers and trainers, as well as creating her own events educating how to build relationships. In 2009, she incorporated into the ‘Connexions Unlimited’ structure in Business MasterMind Groups, which has proved to be her passion.
MasterMinding gives Jennie a way of supporting people, especially entrepreneurs, in all business skill sets. She believes that group synergy is paramount in creating suitable advisory boards who keep each other accountable so their business grow and participants reach their individual goals.

- find their niche market
- understanding the importance of authenticity

What they say about Power Hour Mentoring Session
Tan Ja says…
I am so excited that our Aussie Bloggers Podcast latest guest is actually one of the first people to give me my confidence back to begin a new path down the road of business.
She recognised my potential (I still don’t see what she sees), and she encouraged, mentored, helped and gently worked with me until I could take each step further and further and branch out on my own. A long journey, but one that I will be forever grateful to this woman for.
Jennie Gorman – you are an amazing woman and we are so proud of you and everything you have achieved in life. Thank you for being our Aussie Bloggers Podcast Guest. Your work is life changing and inspiring.

I would just like to say the biggest THANK YOU for the ‘Create 2012 to be what I want..’ session that you gave Debbie & I on the 16th of Feb this year. The goal setting was great fun, but more importantly breaking our goals down to the next 3 months. I am very excited to say that I have already achieved ALL 5 goals (at 3 weeks!) and I am on track to achieving the 6 month goals within the next 8 weeks!
You are amazing in your delivery, your ability to have us create our visions in our minds, write them down & achieve them. I cannot thank you enough & yes 2012 is going to be everything that I create!

“I created my business Balance Central in 2009 and about 18 months later I discovered something called Networking. When I started out I soon realised that I really didn’t know a lot about what it takes to be an effective Networker. It was at my second networking event that I met Jennie and she gave me 2 very important pieces of information that I still use now. They were – always go to a new Networking event twice and Brisbane is very small – do things in the right way and you will flourish – do them the wrong way and you will not survive. It made me realise that I didn’t know what the right way was but I did recognise that Jennie did know what the right way was. Jennie is genuinely interested in guiding people on how to network effectively and how to build strong relationships. I very quickly found some of the groups that Jennie was facilitating and I am now on the road to being an effective relationship builder. I see Jennie as a mentor as she is an active educator. When you are in Jennie’s presence you get to see what a great Networker should look, act and think like. Every time I am with Jennie I learn something new. Thank you Jennie for educating me on being genuine and most importantly listening to what others need. I look forward to our continuing journey.”

“I did one-on-one mentoring with Jennie Gorman in 2010. I highly recommend it for small business owners, whether you are either starting out or find you are in a rut and overwhelmed at the idea of working your business out. If sometimes you get the feeling it’s just too hard, your solution is to enrol in Jennie’s Mentoring Sessions. It is the first step you need to take. Through working with Jennie and her vast business knowledge and experience she was able to guide me in the direction to identify how I wanted my business to grow. All I can say is, this is definitely not one to be missed!!!” –
