Your progress log on your profile is the place to keep a record of your action points that come from your chat. You can also share your progress, plans, artwork, photos and links to new material on there. All mentors can view your logs.
We also recommend you update your Metrics each month so you can log your development on streaming, socials, press, etc. It creates a useful graphic that will allow you to visually see areas that you need to develop.
