Years ago I could be found in the library of my small town looking for self improvement books. Anything containing advice on how to be a better person grabbed my attention. And I poured through books about hidden truths and secrets. I was one of the original skeptics in my small town.
My excitement at a new truth or a hidden trick followed me into adulthood. I still can be found browsing the Self-Help counter looking for something to enjoy. I found a number of hidden resources on the Internet and have more eBooks than I care to admit.
Then I started sharing my knowledge. Or I asked questions. Some of my questions have led to insightful answers. Sometimes people thank me for helping them see things from a new perspective.
All of this curiosity and urge to help people fine-tune their lives led me to create the 15 Min Mentor.
