Mentorship is the foundation of manhood. It’s through mentorship that young men can learn the ins and outs of what it means to be a responsible man. Having mentored young men for 20+ years, author and motivational speaker Terry Spain does an exceptional job guiding young men that desire mentorship in his new book, Hey Young Man!

Terry believes that to be an effective leader, you must be willing and receptive to being led. He uses anecdotes, exercises, and practical tips to encourage young men to tap into their greatest potential. While this book is written to empower young men, it’s a great tool for other mentors that want to effectively lead their mentees.

After reading this book, young men and mentors can expect to:

● Discover new ways to express themselves 

● Implement practical tips to encourage growth

● Learn how to verbally express themselves maturely

Terry’s goal is to continue to positively impact young men, encourage them to become leaders and empower them to embrace their manhood journey.
