When I first got started in the online marketing world, I felt like my success was just round the corner.
I was convinced that my life would change forever within a few months.
I started taking massive action to build an online business.
One month passed….nothing happened.
3 months passed….no success.
6 months passed….not even close to success.
9 months passed….absolutely no hint of success.
It was after spending $42,000 in 9 months and having no results to show for my efforts, I finally realized something:
My approach was ALL wrong.
I wasn’t operating with a sound plan or strategy.
I was just running around like a headless chicken doing too many things randomly.
I was simply throwing everything at the wall to see what sticks.
It was then I realized that I needed to learn the REAL concepts and strategies that TRULY work.
I realized that I needed to learn how to solve problems and overcome obstacles to become successful.
I realized I needed HELP.
So I made a commitment to myself that I would seek out successful people in my industry and learn from them.
I did just that and rest is history.
When I started seeking out successful marketers and followed what they told me to do, I went from being a failure to making my first $100,000 very fast.
Soon I scaled my first million dollars.
Then I passed the 5 million dollar mark.
Today, I have made over $15 million online, created 5 different multi million dollar business from scratch, coached lots of students all over the world and helped many of them become financially free.
Now my goal is to take my business to the next level:
So basically in a span of 6 years, I went from being a guy at a dead end construction job to becoming the youngest highest paid entrepreneur in the home business world.
So how did all this happen so fast?
Because of one word:
When I left my ego at the door and realized that what I was doing was not good enough and I need to get the help of REAL EXPERTS to be successful, everything changed for me.
And if you think about it, my story is similar to countless other great successful stories.
Take any successful person in the world and you will see all of them had mentors who helped them get to where they are now.
So what really makes mentorship so special?
Let me put it this way:
If you want to learn driving, you can go online to read and watch countless tutorials. You can learn all the theory as well as techniques on how to drive a car effortlessly.
But when you ACTUALLY sit in front of the steering wheel and turn on the engine…everything is different.
It doesn’t matter how much you know theoretically…..you will make all sorts of mistakes.
Now imagine an experienced driver sitting next to you explaining how to drive a car, how to navigate the traffic, what to do in every complex situation…when you have someone like that, it’s priceless.
No amount of studying can EVER replicate a teacher guiding you every step along the way while you practice mastering a skill.
When you have a teacher, you not only learn what to do, you learn what NOT to do as well as what to do when something goes wrong.
In a nutshell, that is what mentorship is all about.
If you want to achieve something, you need to FIND those who have achieved what you want and follow their advice.
When you do that, you will achieve success FAR MORE quickly than you ever could on your own.
Now the question is how do you find a good mentor and take his/her help to become successful?
Over the years, based on my experience, I have developed a very simple 4 step process which has worked very well for me.
Let me walk you through those steps so that you can find the right mentor who will guide you to success.
Step 1 – Decide on what you want to master
You need to have a clear idea of what you want before you go out and seek a mentor.
Every person is at a particular stage of development.
Right now, you may be a complete newbie who just wants to get started the right way and build a sustainable online business.
You may be someone who wants to promote products using a particular traffic method like Facebook Ads, Solo Ads, Youtube Ads or Blogging.
Or someone who is trying to build an ecommerce business, create your own products or services. Or perhaps, you already have a successful business but looking to take it to the next level…
The list goes on….
If you want to find the right mentor, you need to know 3 things:
- Where you stand (skill set wise)
- What you want to achieve
- Your area of focus (if you have a specific idea in mind).
Once you determine that, you can move to the next step.
Step 2 – Find out what experts have achieved success in that field
People who have gone through the journey that you are about to go through will know every little INTRICATE detail on how to overcome all obstacles to succeed.
Learning from them is priceless.
That’s why you have to choose mentors who have succeeded in your CHOSEN field.
So go and search for the leaders and upcoming stars in your particular field.
Google, Facebook, Linkedin, niche forums are all great places to start.
The best place to obtain this kind of information (in my opinion) is Facebook.
Using Facebook, you can not only find the industry leaders and the upcoming stars in your chosen field but you can also see what kind of buzz they are generating, what people are saying about them which can go a long way in helping you decide whether to approach them for mentorship.
Step 3 – Choose The Right Person
There are tons of successful people out there who would make terrible mentors.
Mastering something is a skill.
But so is teaching it to others.
A good mentor is someone who not only is great at what they do, but also great at imparting their knowledge to others.
If I were to list out the traits of a good mentor, it would be this:
- They know what they are doing
- They know how to transfer their knowledge, experience and understanding
- They know how to push you to become the best you can be
- They are good listeners but not someone who will accept excuses
- They are invested in your success
So when you are looking for someone, make sure they have the right qualities.
Step 4 – Reach out and seek their mentorship
Here’s the tricky part.
Not all successful people (who are good at teaching) are looking to mentor others.
Why? They are too busy doing what they are doing.
If you reach out to them, you have to convince them to mentor you.
You may have to pay the fee that they are asking for (its 100% worth it) or you may have to work in their team to get all the necessary experience (again 100% worth it if you can do it).
If the person you are reaching out to have the skill sets that you desperately want, then do what it takes to learn from them.
You will be glad you did.
There are also successful people out there who have their own coaching programs where they actively take in students.
If someone you want to learn from, is offering coaching, then grab it with both hands.
It can’t get easier than that.
Now there is a small misconception going around that those who truly know their stuff aren’t the ones looking to coach others.
That’s nonsense really.
All the greatest coaches in the world who have created tons of success stories are those who openly offer their coaching services.
In fact, successful people who are actively coaching others (& producing real success stories) are the ones who know how to successfully impart their skills to others.
So seek out the right person and get him to say yes.
Step 5 – Suck up your ego, prepare to be kicked around and take massive action
Once you get someone to mentor you, that’s when your real work starts.
The best mentors in the world can be the hardest taskmasters.
They are not going to make your life easy.
Change happens only with drastic actions and great mentors will make you do whatever it takes to succeed.
They are brutal with their criticism too.
There will be days when your mentor will push you around hard but you just have to accept it as there is no reward without struggle.
So throw away your ego, soak everything in and keep taking action.
With the right attitude and the right mentor, SKY is the limit.
So go out there and find the right mentor for you.
It’s a lifelong process really.
No matter what level you are in, you need help to get to the next level.
A few years back, I was stuck at the $30,000 per month mark for a LONG time. No matter what I did, I couldn’t take my income to the next level.
So I got a mentor and soon following his advice, I was able to make certain tweaks to my business model which helped me go from $30K to $300K per month almost overnight.
My business absolutely exploded from there on.
Now I have bigger goals and you can bet I am getting advice from people who can help me get there.
Successful people never stop learning thus they never stop growing.
Keep that in mind always and you will experience great success in your entrepreneurial journey.
