Welcome to 101 Mentoring!

I hope you are excited! But first, we need to take care of some business before you can proceed. This will only take about 1–2 minutes.

You can not ignore this step. Everything depends on it.

Step 1. Add Email Addresses to Your Address Book

101 Mentoring takes place entirely within the context of email. Therefore, it is absolutely critical that you add two email addresses to your address book. If you don’t, our emails may end up in spam. That would be really bad!

Fortunately, it will only take about 60 seconds, and I am going to walk you through it.

These are the email addresses you need add to your address book:

Follow the simple instructions for your email client on the pages below:

If you need assistance with this, please email me and I will be glad to help. This must be done before we proceed.

Note to Gmail Users

Our emails will most likely end up in your "Promotions" tab. This is easily avoided by dragging the email to your Main Inbox. The directions can be found using the links above. Look for ‘Gmail Tabs’ near the top.

Step 2. Send Me a Screenshot

This is a critical step in the process and I need proof you have whitelisted our emails. Please send me an email (shannon@101words.org) with a screenshot of both email addresses in your address book. If you do not know how to take a screenshot, it’s easy. Here are some instructions.

I know this seems like a slight inconvenience, but it is necessary to ensure you get the daily prompts. Once I get your reply, we can move on to the fun stuff.

Step 3. What Next?

When I receive your email, I will send you further instructions.

All right, let’s get started!
