Author Biography

I grew up on Long Island, New York in the quaint village of Northport. After graduating from Cornell University with a B.S. in Microbiology, I moved to Houston, Texas to pursue my Ph.D. studies in Cancer Research at MD Anderson Cancer Center through UT Health Science Center. After receiving a US Patent for my reasearch, "Lipid Complexed Topoisomerase I Inhibitors", I left graduate school for a career in financial services.
I have been fortunate to work for some of the top companies in financial services - some better known New York Stock Exchange listed companies like American Express, Charles Schwab, Merrill Lynch (now part of Bank of America), JP Morgan Chase, as well as some smaller New York Stock Exchange listed companies like Cullen/Frost Bankers (NYSE: CFR) and Guaranty Bank (now part of BBVA, NYSE: BBVA).
I realized my time working as both a financial advisor and sales manager with some of these top firms over almost two decades, exposed me to much high-level training which could be applied to both personal life as well as my professional career. I also realized many others might also benefit from this information, so I decided to compile the best of this training in order to make it accessible and applicable for anyone who had an interest. I combined this with trial and error uses/enhancements (real world application) of this information, personal stories, real world experiences, and observations - creating the book, "Mentor Me: GA=T+E—A Formula to Fulfill Your Greatest Achievement".
The initial feedback I have received is this book is "succinct", "practical", "easy-to-read", and "easy-to-implement".
My hope is everyone who reads "Mentor Me" can find something therein to take away and use to have a positive impact on their lives.

    Book Review

Reviewed by Kathryn Bennett for Readers' Favorite

Mentor Me GA=T+E—A Formula to Fulfill Your Greatest Achievement by Ken Poirot is designed to work as a document that is essential living. A book that will help you decide on and attain your greatest dream while being something you can turn to more than just once when reading. The most common dream that people have is a truly happy life and sometimes to get that dream we know we need a little bit of help.

I went into this book not knowing much about Ken Poirot, the author. I wanted to have a fully open mind for this self help book and I am pleased that I read it. You can tell that Ken Poirot has experience in coaching and financial services expertise - all of that comes together in a book that really does help and offers some pointers. The way that it is written and laid out is easy to follow and understand, which personally I find is the only way I want to read a self help book. When I sit down to get some help on a topic, I want to be able to understand what I am reading without needing a translation. Mentor Me gives me all of that and more. Anyone out there who has goals and wants help in realizing them - and that is almost everyone - should think about reading this book. It makes things seem possible and not overwhelming and will help give you a focus point.
