Do You Need A Mentor?

First let’s look at who may need a mentor and why.

The Internet is a vast worldwide communication system which goes a lot further than just communication. It is a marketers paradise allowing the marketer to communicate with prospective purchasers worldwide. It is also an encyclopedia of useful and sometimes useless information.

Now this is where your mentor starts to become useful to you. He or she has traveled the path similar to the way you want to go. That is providing you have done your research and picked on a mentor that is in the same field that you are in or entering.

There are many pitfalls on the internet and in marketing on the internet so the idea of having a mentor is to help you avoid all these pitfalls is a very good one.

Before I go any further I should point out that I am not a mentor and I was still making some of the classic mistakes before I hooked up with one.

So in my opinion unless you are very lucky and get it right first time then you are going to need the services of a good mentor.

Are there bad mentors out there? I would have to say yes. the reason for this is I see people offering coaching and mentoring services, but I have never seen any of their work online.

Like some of the e-books you used to see, they were written by people who quite honestly did not know what they were talking about. As the saying goes they talked the talk but they didn’t walk the walk. They were just talkers and not workers.

So as I mentioned earlier you need to take a good look around at all the mentors out there and see which is likely to be the best fit for your intended niche. If you can I would suggest you try and get just a couple of hours with your intended mentor before you come to a decision on who your best mentor would be.

Why? Well there is such a thing as personality clash. If for some reason you take a dislike to your intended mentor or they take a dislike towards you then you are likely to end up not learning all that you could or should.

A couple of hours or even less could help you save money in the long run.

Remember once you have a mentor it should be a mentor for life who could also turn into a friend for life. The mentoring process can work both ways when you have both had a different beginning in life. You can learn from each others experiences.

I wish you all the best in finding a mentor that improves your well being.
