Find A Good Mentor

When I first got started in direct online sales, I was alone. I was lost. And I was confused. Like so many other beginner online marketers, I was sold on the hype: the hype of achieving financial freedom in a relatively short period of time. I was sold on the hype that anyone from any educational background could succeed with their own online business. I was sold on the hype that I could build a 7-figure income from the comfort of my own home. And I was sold on the hype that I could achieve all of this by only having to invest a couple of hours of my time each day, thereby freeing up a good portion of my time to be able to do whatever I want.

Does any of this sound familiar to you? Sounds like a dream come true doesn’t it?

And so, in the beginning, I was all in. I invested time. I invested money. And I invested faith in the people who were supposed to have brought me under their wing and help me manifest this amazing reality that they were promising.

Any guesses as to what happened next? I fell flat on my face. I spent a bunch of money trying to get people to pay attention to me: to get people to take me seriously and see me as an authority.

But no one viewed me as an authority. No one saw me as a leader. So, of course, I wasn’t generating any leads. I wasn’t generating any sales. I wasn’t generating any money.

I was frustrated. I was annoyed. And I was angry.

And to top it all off, the person who had signed me up for my first couple of opportunities had completely disappeared off the face of the planet and was no longer even involved in the opportunities that they had signed me up for.

Does any of this sound familiar?

It took me over a year and a half to figure out where I’d gone wrong.

There was one thing and one thing alone that was preventing me from succeeding. Do you want to know what that one thing was?

I didn’t have a credible mentor.

I didn’t have someone I could trust showing me the ropes and helping me bridge the gap between beginner and leader. Without a decent mentor it’s nearly impossible to swim in the cold, dark waters of direct online sales and internet marketing. There are sharks and barracudas everywhere just waiting to take your money and provide you with very little in return other than a couple of over generalized ebooks and a system for making big profits online, that doesn’t work without the guidance of a good mentor who cares about your success.

You need a Good Mentor.

You find good mentors by doing your due diligence. Don’t make the same mistake I did and jump into an opportunity with someone who claims that they can make you rich unless you’ve checked them out first.

Google them. Research the opportunity. Who are the leaders within that opportunity? Are they successful? Are they credible? Are they bringing you into a community of leaders with track records of providing true value? These are all important questions you must ask yourself before embarking on any online adventure into marketing.

If the person trying to sign you up for an online marketing opportunity isn’t talking about the leaders in their community, don’t do it! Keep searching until you find someone who is. Otherwise you’re going to waste money and you’re going to waste time.

Find a Credible Mentor and find one quick.

Fearless Trev.
