Do You Need A Business Mentor?

If this sounds like a strange question, it’s not. Some people need a mentor and don’t even know it. And actually, the people who need mentoring most are the ones who don’t realize that they do as they are that clueless.

Let me just give it to you straight, and if this comes off as harsh, please forgive me but I’ve always been a straight shooter and never sugarcoat my words. This way, at least people know exactly where I am coming from.

Some people just don’t have the smarts to make it on their own. All you have to do is look at some of the emails that you get from prospective customers. They can’t even put a coherent sentence together… so how can they run a business.

Look, I’m no Einstein, but I do have some smarts and I have developed some skills over the years. I can write and I can learn. I can come up with ideas and I can be creative. And guess what? There were still times in my life when I needed some mentoring. Why? Because I was stuck in a rut and needed somebody to give me a kickstart that I wasn’t going to get from reading a book.

For example, if I want to learn Adwords, I personally don’t need a mentor. I just need to read a good book on the subject. Perry Marshall’s is the best one I’ve found. I’m actually studying it now because my Adwords skills aren’t the best. By the time I am done reading the book, I’ll be fine. I don’t need the man himself to mentor me.

But, some people could read that same book from now until the end of time and it won’t matter. They need somebody to explain things to them and walk them through the process.

Those are the people who need a mentor.

How do you know if you’re one of those people are not? Simple. If you read a book and don’t understand it, or can’t put the principles to use, then you need a mentor. It’s not rocket science.

Personally, I believe…

There’s Nothing Like A Good Mentor To Ensure Your Business Success

Let me elaborate a bit on this…

Anyone searching for a way to earn a living from home has come across a countless number of opportunities to search through. Even if they do make the right decision it is not at all guaranteed they will find success. Not at all!

There are so many reasons why people fail when they start a home business and I don’t have the time (or the space) to name them all right now.

One significant reason is the absence of a good mentor(s). I can’t emphasize enough how important this is to get anyone going on the right track in the beginning (and throughout).

Starting a home business can be daunting for anyone but especially so when a newbie invests there money and has dreams and a plan to make this all happen. Unfortunately, the plan probably has nothing to do with the real way to find success with your business.

Here comes the mentor to save the day. A good mentor which could mean a sponsor in a program, another affiliate in the same program, or a group of people in a forum can point the newbie with the dream in the right direction. They will teach the newbie about some of the truly important aspects of marketing such as creating ads, building backlinks, blogging, writing articles, optimizing your website and all those other things that the newbie did not imagine. Remember the newbie had a dream and it probably looked more like someone on a beach with a laptop and an exotic drink somewhere nearby.

Seriously though, it is truly important to find a good mentor and one can do that pretty easily if you know a program you would like to more about. Check out most business forums or facebook groups and they will have threads on that program where you can read who posts, what they say and the general attitude of the individuals. Read everything you can and start to ask questions. Look at the kind of responses you get and who gives a thoughtful response and who does not respond at all.

If you do see one or two individuals who seem to be the type of person you would like to be your mentor, you can send them a private message and ask them a few questions. See how responsive they are and if they are willing to help. Technically, you are really interviewing them and you can choose the kind of person you want for the job. Hey, the shoe is on the other foot now!

Make sure when dropping that money down and prepping for your dream, you take all this into account. Your success might not be guaranteed, but your chances of success will be much, much greater.

I do offer my own business mentoring services but my classes are booked until May. If you want to be considered for a May class, contact me.

Put “Mentoring Info” in the subject.

I will send you the info about what you’ll get and what it will cost you. No, I am NOT cheap.

No good mentor is ever cheap.

But first, know whether or not mentoring is something you need.
