We Met On Instagram


Patricia Regier and Stephanie Lakeit-Hall celebrate six months from meeting each other through Instagram! This Blog Post, Part One is packed with information about the beginning of our mentorship journey or venture. Check out the fantastic infographic that Stephanie created, and a vlog that Patricia recorded on the way to meeting for the first time. [Part two includes Stephanie’s Take-Away’s so far, and the contract/agreement we created during this journey.]



The Beginning!


Patricia was running her own business Regier Educational Services.


Stephanie had just finished my MBA. She was looking for something more. She was not satisfied in current position and was looking to connect with like minded people. But she really wasn’t sure what that looked like and if it existed in her area.



It All Started On Instagram


One day Stephanie was scrolling on Instagram and came across a post by @LeadersInspired (page by Patricia Regier/Regier Educational Services). The post that Stephanie saw was something that she really felt connected to.  It led her to go further and look at the whole account @LeadersInspired Account. This led her to Patricia’s website Regier Education Services.


Stephanie was so drawn to the contented and felt so connected to what Patricia was doing she decided to do something she has never done before. Reach out to Patricia via Instagram to see if she was available to meet for a possible mentor/mentee relationship.  We live in the same area, so meeting and forming this type of relationship was something that may be possible.


Patricia messaged Stephanie back (to her surprise!).  Patricia receives many messages online, but this message felt different. She felt the authenticity in the message. Patricia shares content on Instagram in hope of reaching, impacting and inspiring people

The Journey


After messaging back and forth a few times we set up a date and time to meet face to face to see if a mentor/mentee relationship was possible and beneficial for both.  Reaching out and connecting online is pretty neat. However, meeting in person was a new level!


Patricia recorded a #TrishTalks vlog about her thoughts on the way to meeting Stephanie for the first time.  Check it out ….






First Meeting Jitters


Stephanie still remembers how nervous she was the first time she met Patricia.  To Be Continued….
