I had a significantly opportunistic and life changing experience while employed by an urban public school district in central Pennsylvania.  As a fourth year teacher in 2001, I overheard that the district had access to approximately $150,000.00 US to implement an in-house alternative school program for truant and excessively absent students.  As I sat idly in my apartment that weekend, I analyzed the larger dilemma and began to construct a proposal for the district’s first attempt at a night school since 1969. I recall working feverishly all weekend and printing the final proposal late Sunday night. I returned to work on Monday ...

Peer Resources - Mentor Papers Online
We continually scan the Internet for resources about mentoring. If you are concerned about "not reinventing the wheel," these papers might be of use. However, if you want to create your own ideas, then the wisdom of Joseph Campbell in Creative Mythology (1968, p. 4) might be useful: "Some people spend a lifetime attempting to live according to cultural images that never quite fit them. Whenever a knight of the Grail tried to follow a path made by someone else, he went altogether astray. Where there is a way or path, it is someone else's footsteps. Each of us has to find our own way." The papers listed ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Women Business Owners Part of Social Entrepreneurship Trend ...
Those survey results were especially interesting because on the one hand they indicated substantial growth. Eighty-five percent (85%) reported that their revenues grew over 25% in 2006. Roughly the same percent predicted their businesses would also grow in 2007, sometimes up to 70% growth. Clearly, these are women focused on the top line and bottom line. A group of focused, committed, growth-oriented women business leaders does not surprise me. What did surprise me just a little, was how many — 62.9% — said that social entrepreneurship was important or very important. Keep in mind that we’re talking about ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Ideally they are not looking for a consultant - but an actual practitioner. If you have been involved in this type of assistance before - what advice could you give from your experience on how to structure such an arrangement? What are the ...
