I recently spoke to a gentleman who had signed on to Arpin earlier this year as a driver and with the help of another Veteran driver he has been successful and feels as if he has found a home.
The veteran driver took him under his wings and mentored him and spoke honestly to him on a variety of topics and because of that they have both bonded for life.

Have you ever mentored anybody ?

Sharing what helped you through the years can benefit the next guy and I promise you that in the process you will learn something, if nothing else it will remind you of what is important.

Pay it forward.


Before becoming a mentor, here are a few things to understand about the role of mentoring. Most of us have had a teacher, supervisor or coach who has been a mentor to us and made a positive difference in our lives. Those people wore many hats, acting as delegators, role models, cheerleaders, policy enforcers, advocates, and friends. Mentors assume these different roles during the course of a relationship, and share some basic qualities:
  • A sincere desire to be involved with someone else's success and to better someone's life
  • Respect for people
  • Active listening skills
  • Empathy
  • Ability to see solutions and opportunities
  • Flexibility
