A Mentor is probably one of the most
important aspects for the beginning stages of your being online and
marketing your program or business. When you are just beginning
your venture into the internet marketing arena, having someone show
you the ropes that has already been there , done that but also one who
has had success in the their internet business.
Mentoring should be considered one of the
most important, if not the most important part of your decision
making when you are entering into your business. Is the company
with your mentor, the best fit for you as well as the person with
whom you are thinking of hooking up with?
There are certain steps that are necessary for you to get the most
out of having a mentor and working with a mentor. Don’t rush into
making a decision as to whom you want to work with and why. There
are some very good mentors in the internet marketing business and
it is up to you to find the one that would be a great fit for you.
Look at many of the top programs that are out there (and there
are plenty of them and it can be somewhat overwhelming) but
taking the time to look over all the programs and the successful
entrepreneurs within them, it will pay off to you in the long run.
1) What are your goals? What do you want to learn from a top
teacher and what kind of traits would you want in a mentor?
Are you looking for a good mentor that will give you a pathway
in which to walk but not tell you the whole process but one that
will allow you to find your own way?
2) Look for possible individuals who might fit your idea of a good
mentor. Make sure your have a full understanding of what you
expect of him/her but just importantly, what they expect from
and of you. This relationship has to work for both sides. A lot
of process might just be the company that the mentor is with and
how that company aligns with your ideas.
4) A good mentorship need to have an open discussion from both
sides. Having open and frank feedback is important on both sides.
Make sure that before you join a company, that not only the coompany
but the person you are joining is the right fit for you.
It is too easy to jump right into a company and then realize that
there might be other mentors that would be a better fit for you.
Don’t jump the gun until you have done your due diligence.
5) Having a open mind to learning the essences of a good mind set!
Almost every good mentor will have a portion of their learning
process dedicated to increasing your mind set. This simply means
having a mind that allows you to work on your own positive mind
set and your relationships with other people.
One of the main ideas of learning a good mind set is realizing
that people will join YOU, not necessarily your company.
6)Have a routine set up that will allow you to become more
efficient with your daily procedures. In other words, have a
schedule set up that will allow you to work through your day
with certain prearranged assignments that you have set out
7) Have a simply system set up that allows you to be able
to duplicate this system and be able to pass it on to your
8) Be able to have thick skin that allows you to not be
worried about each prospect outcome. There will be
plenty of people who will be interested in your company
or program as to not be hung up on a few people who
just are not ready to join you.
9) Just be ready to join your company’s outings, where ever
that might be, as this is one of the major places that you can
meet up with other like minded entrepreneurs and learn a
great deal from others in the company.
A Good Mentor is truly one that can give you that head
start into the best arena that you have picked for yourself.
Sometimes you have to decide: is it the company, the product
or the mentor or a combination of all of them.
Change your ways of thinking and acting and being in the world
and your life and circumstances will inevitably change as well.
But you will never really change your life by focusing on your
