VMentoring 6-week challenge

In this Challenge I intend to share with you a typical step-by-step mentoring sessions process I go through with my mentees. Of course, it's going to be a bit generic as it's not going to be personalised; but according to my experience the topics covered in this challenge apply to almost all starting out translators cases.
Here are some results my students have got following my LinkedIn proven process
