Why should you be part of the 4word Mentor Program?
We know the 4word Mentor Program is a life-changing 10-week experience in which every professional Christian woman should take part. But don’t take our word for it! Hear from one of our mentors:
“The 4word Mentor Program is a critical platform to any woman who wants to take their career, family and faith to the next level in life. There is so much rich knowledge shared and learned about progressive work-life balance strategies to help women succeed regardless of their current situation in life. If you believe this type of mentorship and community can be of value to you in life, then 4word is for you!” – Rhonda Gaines, Mentor
