ep 14: Why You Absolutely Need A Mentor

Ep 14: Why You Absolutely Need A Mentor

I have 5 mentors.

These were each carefully chosen to reflect the components of my business and life that I want to improve at.

  1. Marketing
  2. Sales
  3. Operations
  4. General Business
  5. Spirituality and well being

Of course, you can still be successful without a mentor. But simply put, mentorship helps you fast track your success.

The times when I didn’t have one, my life stood still and didn’t really go anywhere.

I’m a big advocate for learning in any and every way possible – reading articles, listening to podcasts, attending conferences…These are all great ways to constantly improve yourself and your business.

However, having a great mentor will trump all of these any day of the week. You can’t go past advice that is tailored to you!

Mentorship is a topic I’m really passionate about and I want to demystify it a bit more in this episode so you can start searching for your perfect mentor.

In this episode I’ll cover:

  • The 5 priceless benefits of having a mentor
  • The difference between the 3 types of mentors: The Coach, The Motivator and The Big Brother
  • What the ideal mentor/mentee situation looks like, and how you can strive to emulate it
  • Why you definitely SHOULD pay your mentor for their time (it’s worth the investment, trust me!)

I hope you enjoy the episode! Please subscribe and share this episode with 1 person you think would find it valuable. I’ll be in your ears next week.
