There are many ways to become successful on the internet, but it can be tough, costly and time-consuming.
No matter what your goals in life you need to know:
– where you are and how you got here
– where you are heading and WHY
– how to get there as quickly and easily as possible
Internet marketing is an industry where data and information change rapidly and trying to keep up can be overwhelming. It is so easy to get sidetracked and lose focus due to the amount of stuff that is being thrown at you all the time.
So what is the best way to stay on track and achieve your goals?
Get a MENTOR!
Mentors are great at bringing you back down to earth and getting you to focus on what’s important when you are flying off at all sorts of tangents! Mentors help you concentrate on what you need to do to build your business.
Throughout life, we all have mentors of one sort or another, often without us really realising that we are being mentored. Parents, teachers, youth leaders all guide us whilst we are growing up.
So when we embark on a journey that is really important to us and our future, surely we would benefit from someone who can show us the way? I firmly believe so. As much as I would like to think I can learn all I need to know to make a success of internet marketing, I have come to realise that I can drown in a sea of information and ‘offers’ without actually moving forward.
I am on the committee of a businesswomen’s organisation here in Scotland and when you speak to really successful businesswomen or female entrepreneurs, you find that they all have mentors.
Mentors are not just for the early days of your business either, they are for the life of your business. The mentor may change as your business grows and develops but a mentor/s is always essential.
Mentors are our role models so there are a lot of factors to take into consideration when selecting a mentor. And one of the most important is whether you can communicate with and relate to them. Your mentoring relationship should be fun!
You may have many mentors on your journey to success and I have partnered with Stuart Ross and Jay Kubassek of the Six Figure Mentors and Digital Experts Academy.
Stuart and Jay have impressed me with their honesty, directness, integrity and energy as well as their achievements. And I’m not the only one! People are flocking to join them.
No matter what type of business you are in, a mentor is essential to your success but even more so in the online world where all sorts of hidden distractions lurk!
Of course, in the end, no matter how brilliant your mentor, it all still comes down to you. You still need to put in the time and effort. You must get out and create your own future.
So watch this space!
To your success
