Here Goes

Hey everyone. I've been a lurked mostly the past couple of years on here and have made several attempts to be more involved on this site. I'm struggling and just need advice and guidance.

Todd Serveto replied to Rocco Vallerand's discussion Looking for a mentor in the group Manly Mentors
"Only one caveat--a group cyber-chat (particularly once per month) is no substitute for one-on-one accountability on at least a once-a-week basis.  And that needs to be as face-to-face as possible---if "in person" is not…"
