I’ve been looking at and talking about this topic of mentor-ship. I’ve talked to you about mentors in the past. Additionally, we’ve talked about why it’s so interesting to have a mentor, as well as the cost of not having a mentor, what that’s going to cost you, and also the cost of having the wrong mentor. When I talked about mentor-ship in an earlier episode, I talked about the three things you need to look for in a mentor. So, what’s the most important thing you should look for in a mentor?
Someone Who is Where You Want to Be
It’s that person who’s where you want to be in life. There’s only one big problem that’s really inconsiderable to find. You can’t turn on social media, you can’t turn on Facebook or Instagram, without seeing some new dude saying, “Look at all my cool stuff…new car…Look at my this…Look at my that…” And that’s great, we all want nice things. We all want to take our family on fun vacations, have those nice cars, and all that shiny stuff; it’s great.
There’s only one problem: have you helped anybody else? Is it just about them? It’s cost us a lot of money, time, and effort to find out those gurus. Those guys with all the shiny objects can’t teach the way out of a paper bag. So the first thing you want to find is someone who is where you want to be.
Make Sure They Can Show You How to Get There
They can show you how to get to where you want to be, not just that they got there because they did one single thing. Maybe they got lucky. Maybe they did something, or maybe they worked hard.
But one thing happened for them, and it turned out great. However, there’s an old saying: “When your only tool is a hammer, everything looks like a nail.”
And so you have to be careful about everybody, or those out there who treat everything as a nail.
Results from Other People
Those two things are very important, but what’s the number one thing you need to look for in a mentor? You need to look for results from other people that they have worked with, from other people that they’ve mentored.
I want you to look at the videos on that page because those are just a fraction of the people that I have coached and mentored. I have helped my clients get to multiple six, seven, and even eight figures in their business.
There are three major milestones that I help people get to in their business:
- Making the first ten thousand dollars online
- Making 100k a year
- Getting to a million dollars and beyond
So, where are you on that spectrum?

If you haven’t made your first ten thousand dollars online. If you want to get to that 100k a year without information overload, without information overwhelms. Or you want to get to those million dollars a year, I can help you with that.
The number one thing that you want to look for in a mentor is someone who has gotten results for others. Other people- not just themselves-you need to look closer if all their stories are about themselves.
I wish I’d taken this advice when I spent over half a million dollars. I spent over five hundred thousand dollars on all those gurus out there. Only to find out that they couldn’t teach their way out of a paper bag.
So don’t make the same mistakes that I did; instead, do your homework. Do your research.
