Mentors: How to Find the Right One

by Martha Giffen

You’ve now decided you need a mentor.  Good!

But where to look?

First, look at your own goals.  Be clear about what kind of results you are looking for.

Is the potential coach or mentor actually doing what you are striving to achieve?  This is crucial.  There is absolutely no way anybody can teach or guide you in the right direction if they are not already there! Experience should be a key component.

Communication. This is so important because it can make or break your coaching experience.  Be sure you are comfortable with the way your mentor wants to communicate.  Will you have a phone call once a week?  Emails only?  A group setting with other students?  Make sure their style of teaching and accountability fits into your style of learning and taking action.

Do they genuinely want you to succeed? You can find out by looking at testimonials from others.  Are they giving of their time and energy to actually teach you something or are they continually promoting more products?  You know which one is truly interested.

Do they have a track record? If others have benefited from their services, chances are very good that you will too.  Take the time to find out what former and current students are saying.

Final note: Be willing to pay.  Mentors and coaches are valuable assets to help your business grow.  They are worth every penny spent.  And usually more icon smile Mentors: How to Find the Right One
