I believe selecting the correct mentor is critical.

in #ctptalk8 months ago


Here are the five qualities to look at when choosing a mentor.

1.The must already be getting the results you desire. Many “gurus” and “experts” do not get the results they claim or that you desire. They will continue to try to just sell more crap products to people.

  1. The must be willing to spend sometime with you.
    Some people have zero interest in spending time helping others. In the defense of mentors, you must be doing what you have been instructed to do to expect them to spend time with you.

  2. Committed - A true mentor will be committed to long term success. Yours & Theirs

  3. Must be Honest - Of course, honest in business. But I and actually referring to how they interact with you.
    Sometimes people need a kick in the butt, or an honest critique is required. Mentors must be honest over nice.

  4. A solid fit for you personality. People are different, and relate differently with other types of folks/
    If it is a man/woman thing or a talker/non-talker thing. It is critical that the communication is effective.
    A mentor is not meant to be a friend.
    A mentor is not meant to inspire or make you feel good.
    A mentor is meant to help you attain the success you wish, they are to steer you and your business in the right direction.

Choose Wisely!


Fantastic advice.

I keep trying to make mine blush. I don't even know if @jongolson knows he is my mentor. But I appointed him. Lol

All seriousness, I been following him for years now and have learned so much. I do not believe I would be doing what I am doing online today if I never met him.

He continues to inspire me every day with his dedication to what he does, the ideas he comes up with.

Nothing stops him. Like the Phoenix he is.

Thanks for the post and causing me to write this reply.

This is some great guidance for choosing a mentor, Andrew. I have found some really great mentorship in the CTP community. For a very long time I thought I could get by just trying to figure things out on my own because I didn't think that mentorship was important enough to invest in. I have changed my thinking on that. Even though I am not paying alot at all moneywise I am getting great value and I know that I still have to follow through on the advice that I am getting. Which I am doing. Mentors are there to teach and guide you not to tell you that everything you're doing is awesome when it's clearly not.

The Hive Gamification Proposal #2

I'm thankful for my TWO mentors. They are willing to spend time with me, they are honest. Yes, they have kicked me in the seat of my pants many times. Yes, both have great success, over 20 years online. When instructed to do a task, I'm trying to get it done as fast as possible. I know they have my best interest in mind. They really do want to see me succeed.

Thanks for this great advice about selecting a good mentor @andrewn, you always want to follow someone who has done it already, keep up your good work, it's awesome.
