A mentor is someone who teaches or gives help and advice to a less experienced and often younger person. The mentor may share with the mentee information about her own career path, as well as provide guidance, motivation, emotional support and role modeling. A mentor can also help with exploring careers, setting goals, developing contacts and identifying resources.
This was the role that Ghie Pangilinan, Founder and Chief Operating Officer of Skin Magical, played during the biggest women mentorship event. Women entrepreneurs, industry leaders and icons came together to show women power last February 28, 2020 at Go Negosyo’s Mentor ME on Wheels led by presidential adviser Joey Concepcion at the SM Megamall Fashion Hall.
Founded by Joey Concepcion, Go Negosyo is an organization that aims to promote entrepreneurship and the February 28 event was part of the celebration of Women Entrepreneurs and a pre-Women’s Month Offering. The women offered free mentorship advice and business tips to more than 1,500 attendees.
“Sharing the secrets of the success of Skin Magical and what I have learned from the challenges that I was confronted with is all part of my giving back,” Pangilinan said. “We at Skin Magical want to share our business with as many people as possible and we in fact have monthly caravans where we introduce our products and where we even teach them how to do the Skin Magical business.”
This was not the first time that Pangilinan took part in Go Negosyo’s Mentoring program. She participated in the Mentors for DTI (Department of Trade and Industry) and Go Negosyo’sMentor on Wheels in Pampanga on September 16, 2019.
“I will never grow tired of sharing the Skin Magical story because this is my way of sharing my blessings with everyone,” Pagilinan said. “If I can help just one family overcome their financial problems, then I know that I have done my job as a mentor.”
Pangilinan was joined by about 100 more women entrepreneurs during the whole day mentoring program.
