Licensing and Qualifications
Mentoring is based on real-world experience rather than formal education. Consequently, a mentor does not require a license to practice. Nevertheless, Lynn’s qualifications for mentoring are as follows:
Degree in Small Business Operation (1998)
Ordained Nondenominational Minister (2010)
BS Psychology (2012)
BDSM Mistress and Sadomasochist (15 years)
Consensual Cuckoldress (1996-1998; 2008-Present)

“When he was at the height of his success, Walt Disney received a letter from a critic who implied that Mr. Disney was in the business of making movies just for the money. He replied, ‘We don’t make films to make money. We make money to make more films.’
“For Disney, it wasn’t about the money, but he understood that it cost money—a lot of money—to make the kind of art he cared about making. He had to pay his artists, he had to pay for the film, he had to pay for the actors. It all cost something.
“… As a writer, I’ve accepted the fact that I have to make money off my writing if I want to spend most of my time doing it. But honestly, I don’t do it for the royalty checks. I do it, because I have to. It’s my duty.” – Jeff Goins, GoinsWriter.com
Lynn shares the same outlook on money as the gentlemen above. As such, she keeps related to LSMentor to a minimum by taking advantage of sales whenever possible. In the interest of transparency, Lynn updates this chart regularly to reflect the current needs of LSMentor. Additional funds beyond the listed priorities go toward our minimal Wish List, upgrades, and special features.

Technically, we raised $752.00 so far this year, but Lynn’s computer died, which we needed to replace with some of the donations. That lowered our available funds by $300.00.
We would like to add MailChimp Pro and HootSuite to our budget within the next year (2017–2018), which are priced at $120.00 and $119.88 respectively. Both of which will help free up Lynn’s time to write more often and mentor with greater flexibility.
