Ep 123 How to recognise when you need a business mentor and where to find one with Kelsey Chapman
Her Empire Builder with Tina Tower
Today I get to sit down with the gorgeous Kelsey Chapman to discuss everything there is to know about mentorship in business and in life. Kelsey is an author, podcaster and personal cheerleader to women building their dream life and business. When she first launched her own brand in 2015, she leaned on the shoulders of incredible mentors who took her under their wing and taught her how to make the jump from dreamer to doer. We speak about the difference between business coach and mentors, where to find them, how to approach them, and how long to work with them. I’ve had business mentors throughout my entire business journey and one that I have had for 17 years who I still reach out to when I need advice or support. Mentorship, masterminds, business coaching, anything that can surround you with a tribe of people that are in your corner is the most fabulous superpower. ⭐ Show notes: tinatower.com/123 ⭐
Today on Thriving Beyond Belief, we have Kelsey Chapman! Let's talk mentoring and mentorship! Meet Kelsey Chapman Kelsey Chapman is an author, podcaster and personal cheerleader to women building their dream life and business. When she first launched her own brand in 2015, she felt all the overwhelming feelings, too. It was scary to take such a huge leap and commit to showing up for a dream she didn’t know would pan out. People are CRAVING investment! Don’t we all just want someone to step in, help us walk the next few steps in front of us, and offer their wisdom so we can shortcut the distance? Your mentor is probably not going to be Beth Moore, Priscilla Shirer, or Bobbie Houston…How to find a mentor, that’s probably already in your inner circle, that will be *equally impactful* as one of those people you have on a pedestal in your mind! How to recognize mentors in your everyday life Sometimes our mentors are friends that make us feel at home in our own skin, strong women in our faith circles, or the mother and wife that we look at and think, “I want the life I see you building.” Want to be a mentor? How to get past imposter syndrome…Stop disqualifying yourself! The average mentor is just 3 steps ahead of their mentee. Someone, just a few steps behind you, would be honored for you to step into whatever facet of life they need support in. Standing as a daughter of God in the midst of your fears, I had a lot of fear growing up and even into adulthood - one of my mentors helped me face these with confidence knowing I was safe, loved, and empowered in my identity. Your mentor isn’t going to be perfect… You can learn from anyone. And it will be important to realize that as you get up close and personal with your mentor, they aren’t going to be killing it in every area. While you may be looking for mentorship on how to be an incredible person, you might realize they may not be killing it in the family department - and that’s OKAY! You can learn what you need from them and seek mentorship for another facet of life elsewhere.

Asking for help is something that does NOT come naturally to me. I like to blaze my own trail, and I don’t like to be slowed down. I always hated group projects in high school because I wanted to do the work on my (super-fast) timeline and on my own terms. So it’s no surprise that when I started my business, it didn’t even occur to me to ask for help. My method was figuring it out for myself, trial and error, and banging my head against the wall trying to figure things out because I didn’t have anyone that had been in my shoes before able to show me the way. Now, mentorship means everything to me as a business owner. I finally figured out that I can only go so far by myself, and that going it alone actually slowed me down! Fascinating! If you want to reach success faster, build a community of people around you that have been where you’ve been before. Not only can you find a mentor for anything you want to do nowadays, but you can also be a mentor for others as well. This is why my conversation with today’s guest is so special to me! Kelsey Chapman is an author, community builder, online educator, host of The Radiant Podcast. After a few years of fumbling her way through post-grad life, Kelsey realized that her entrepreneurial itch wasn’t going away. She came home, got to work, and turned a part-time blog and side-hustle into a multi-six-figure business in just 2 YEARS! Today, Kelsey leads an audience of 100k followers, hosts The Radiant Podcast, empowers and equips women through her online mentorship program, and is about to release her book, What They Taught Me, on February 9th! If you’re ready to learn about the beauty of mentorship, let’s get right into it! Kelsey and I talk about: Kelsey’s journey to becoming a writer. Why it’s worth taking the time to build an audience. How to find a mentor. Why instead of going at it alone you should let people in. Kelsey’s advice for someone who is struggling to get traction in visibility in their side hustle. The belief Kelsey had to change about herself to get where she is today. My favorite quotes from Kelsey: “No matter what you're doing whether it's course creation, building any sort of service-based business, writing, you have to show that there's a proof of concept like that people will buy the concept.” “The character that's built-in slow growth is what sustains you. What helps you steward that dream of yours longterm.” “Just take what you need. Doesn't mean you have to apply every single thing.” “You don't have to be famous to be a mentor. You just need to be a few steps ahead of someone to be willing to share what you know.” Bio: Kelsey Chapman is an author, community builder, online educator, and host of The Radiant Podcast. She wholeheartedly believes dreams are worth pursuing and is passionate about teaching women how to walk with purpose in their gifts and live from a place of identity and rest — all so that they can carry their dreams and vision for the long haul. After a few years of fumbling her way through post-grad life and a brief stint overseas, Kelsey realized that her entrepreneurial itch wasn’t going away. She came home, got to work, and turned a part-time blog, and side-hustle into a multi-six-figure business in just two years. From there, she realized her business savvy traits and desire to empower others could be translated into something bigger through teaching everything she’s learned with others.
