Internet Business Mentor can be the key, the driving force to get you and your business up and running in a short period of time. The right mentor will save you thousands as you set up, continue to build your internet business. I will list a few things they should help you do. Leadership - be a 5%, one of the movers and shakers in the internet business. Information - have it, and be able to transmit it to you in many forms,one on one(best), go to meeting, phone, emails. Be consistent and timely.
At the end of the presentation, the big shots tell you to get with the person that invited you and join.Like most of us, who base decisions on emotion, you sign on the dotted line under your buddy Billy, (who only has a weeks worth of experience more than you) and has never owned a business in his life. You're all excited about your new business opportunity and are certain you'll be a millionaire in just a few months. You go out there clobbering all your friends and family over the head with your newfound business.
Listen if this was easy anybody could be good at it. Learn, execute, follow-up, Repeat. A business mentor is a person who did all the possible efforts, you plan to do or may plan at later stages. A business mentor will guide and show you the best possible ways to polish your skills, get to better ways of doing a business and will save you from scams and pit falls. So it is wise to get the help of a guru to save you most of your precious assets.
Everyone in business should consider having access to a volunteer business mentor. Someone who has "been there, done that" and is willing and able to share their wisdom with you on an ongoing basis. Working with a business mentor is particularly useful when starting a new business or looking to grow a business in a down economy. An experienced mentor can not only offer useful guidance on a range of business management issues, but s/he can be a valuable sounding board for testing out new ideas or hashing over periodic business challenges.
Provide you with emotional support. You're no longer in a job setting where you take orders from a boss. Therefore, you'd have no one to turn to for advice on what's your next task. Now that you're a business owner, the ball is in your court. Although you're alone, your entrepreneurial journey does not have to be desolate. Your mentor can fill the gap by providing you with emotional support. If you require a second opinion on a matter, he can provide you with the clarity required to move forward.
Allow you to save money on coaching or consulting services. If you've just started your enterprise, you may be strapped for cash. While hiring a consultant or coach would be an asset, you may have to settle for a mentor. This will not only serve as a platform for establishing your business, but also as a way to keep your vision alive. A coach or consultant can cost you anywhere from a few hundred dollars to several thousand dollars depending on that individual's level of expertise.
Corporations are also making it possible for their employees to volunteer their time to mentor people looking to start and grow business ventures. This avenue of mentoring may be particularly useful where the volunteer mentor offers access to a broad industry-specific network or certain technology solutions that can help an up and coming entrepreneur tap new markets or operate more efficiently. MicroMentor, a nonprofit agency, is one example of this type of no-cost business mentoring. By visiting MicroMentor, you can search profiles of available mentors and work with one or multiple mentors to help you start and grow your venture.
