Having a Mentor is Crucial for Achieving Success Online

Is there someone in your life who challenges you to take the next step, go to the next level?
Do you have a mentor in your life, a role model or someone you admire  who wants the same success for YOU as YOU desire for yourself?
Are you fortunate enough to know this person personally and be able to call upon them for coaching and honest feedback?
Having a mentor and coach is the most important aspect of achieving success in your personal life and business endeavours. All those who we consider to be “great” successful business people in the world, Robert Kiyosaki, Warren Buffet, Bill Gates, Tom “Big Al” Schreiter, Art Jonak and Donald Trump, had mentors who inspired them to be more and to do more to achieve the level of success that they enjoy today.
Learning from those who have already become successful is the surest path  to success. If you endeavour to search for an appropriate mentor, you may be blessed  to know them personally and receive coaching and guidance from them on a daily ongoing basis.
Fortunately, my husband and I lydauthorpic found a mentor (actually a community of mentors)  who inspire us daily and graciously and generously works with us so we can achieve our goals and dreams. The reason why they are so successful is because their real passion and desire is to help others achieve financial freedom and they pass it on with a “go-givers”, pay it forward mentality.
Our mentors are experienced  and knowledgeable in the field of network marketing who we can turn to for support, guidance and sometimes just someone to talk to about the challenges that face us as network marketers.
Because of the mentoring and coaching we have received it has inspired us to become mentors and coaches so we too can help others achieve their dreams and goals of financial freedom.
We had no idea when we got started with Mentoring of Free  that we would have access to such a huge international community of professional business men and women who would inspire us and share in our goals and dreams.   For us it is so very important to be a part of a community of volunteers that truly value their team.
Check out this story about Jennifer Wideman, one of our mentors and a real inspiration to others in this industry.  Talk about inspirational!  If you knew her whole story; legally blind and building an online business from home while she helps others do the same in the business of their choice is just the start of her success.

Iwas introduced to network marketing a few years ago. He did not have to tell me twice.  You mean I can use and share this product and possibly never have to work again? I worked so very hard, even with 4 kids under the age of 6 at the time. My husband was such a great support. However, my upline talked me into 2 more deals, tried for a third and I said there’s got to be a better way.

I went to the internet and bought an ebook. I asked for help, joined their team because they would sell me leads, teach me how to convert those leads, and at least I’d have real people interested. That’s a long story, but the outcome was a great learning experience. I am still reaping the benefits of the relationships I built there. I cold-called 350 leads or more, converted a few, and learned how to talk to people much better than I had. I also spent a good bit of money without much in return. The leads dried up, the leader moved on to selling other information products and I was told “Good-bye, good luck.”

One of my associates in that organization stumbled across an ebook called Success in 10 Steps and thought I’d like it, so she sent it to me by email. I didn’t read it right away. I called the person I got it from and asked lots of questions. “Just read the book.” She wouldn’t tell me what company she was in, just assured me this group of people could help me.

And it has. Many people in the Mentoring For Free family have helped me realize that I truly can do anything through education and teamwork. My husband, Terry, is the most incredible person in the world. He has stayed with the kids, taken over when he comes home from his job, supported me even when there was no money coming in yet. HE is the real reason I am so successful. My own incredible team also inspire me to be a better person every day. I give God full credit for putting it all together on my behalf as my primary business partner.

We have 4 beautiful kids, 3 adopted from Liberia, Africa. I want to go back with lots of food, medicine, Limu, Bibles, school supplies regularly to this little country and help other children and their parents.

What are your dreams? What action are you willing to take to achieve them? And who do you have to help you along the way?

  1. I agree with you that mentoring works very well in a business. I did everything on my own for the first several years. I learned a lot and was able to make a full time living online. However, I wanted more and felt that I needed some coaching to get me to the next level. I hired a coach at the end of last year and in the short while that we have worked together the difference is already noticeable. It is much easier to stay focused. Not only is there someone who will hold you accountable, but the feeling of doubt is totally gone. I am getting things done at the speed of light.

  2. Darlene,

    We agree that having the help of those who have successfully achieved what we are aspiring to achieve is a great way to get there a lot quicker and easier. We just need to be aware that we don’t give up our power to them and put them on a pedestal. Learn from them, follow their path and at the same time create our own path and success.

  3. Hi Dave & Darlene:

    I 100% agree with you! The times that I have had a mentor in my life have been my most “successful.” Currently I am without one but I am in hot pursuit of one.


  4. Hi Kevin, Thanks for stopping by and commenting. We too only had success when we found a mentor/s. We found them in Mentoring for Free of which we are now members and mentors.

    Stop by and comment again.

  5. Hi Pat and Lorna, Dave and I totally agree “We just need to be aware that we don’t give up our power to them and put them on a pedestal. Learn from them, follow their path and at the same time create our own path and success.”
    We like to think of it this way. Be your own critical thinker.

  6. Hi Karin, This seems to be a ritual as newbies. We think we have to do it all on our own. For some they are afraid to ask for help, while others just don’t know where to turn to for help.
    One has to be very cautious of whom they hire or seek free mentoring and coaching from. Do they have your best interests at heart or their own?

    Thanks Karin

  7. Hi,

    Your post concept is well taken. I’m one of those “newbees” who is trying to figure all these online things out. Which means that I’m on overload most of the time. It complicates things that I’m not in the actual field of online marketing, so this may require a different mentor than others use. But I intend to take your post to heart. I’ve joined a mastermind starting this week. I think this will help, but if not, I will be back : )

  8. Hi Sherry, thank you for stopping by and leaving a comment. Never be afraid to ask for help. We help mentor anyone in any type of online marketing.

    I am glad that you have joined a mastermind group. This will be very beneficial for you.

    Perhaps there is just some confusion around all the terminology of Network Marketing and Multi-level Marketing. At any rate when you are ready and would like some help. We will be here for you.
