Everyone will agree that it is important to have a Mentor in order to succeed in your online business. This is so because regardless of your education level, your field of learning, or whatever businesses you may be in or have had offline for many years, internet marketing is a whole new world with its own rules and parameters.
You may wonder why I speak of having a “responsive” mentor? In general, a mentor is one who seeks to give guidance to his or her students. There are many hundreds of persons online who seek to to just this…and they may have really valuable information to share. They may also have proven that they know what they are talking about by the fact that they are making a 6-figure income online. However, what about when you take one of their classes? Are you able to contact them directly by e-mail? Do they respond? Unless you are in an Inner Circle or a specific type of Mastermind it would be impractical to expect that you can have direct phone contact on a regular basis.
Do they promote you their student? Turning that question around: Coaches, teachers, and leaders – do you promote your students or team members online? Remember, everyone wears an invisible sign that says, “Make me feel important.” Being others-focused encourages and builds loyalty. It’s a win-win situation for success in your online business to have a responsive mentor and to be a responsive mentor.
