When I was 26, I was on the verge of entrepreneurial collapse.
My company, Spheric Technologies, was in a rapid growth phase, and I found myself in a constant struggle to keep my head above water.
I was stressed out, running out of money, and unsure if I was fit for the job.
I was taking more punches than I could take.
One blow after another.
I was ready to throw in the towel.
And that’s when, in a moment of desperation, I sent out a life changing email (a cry for help was more like it).
FIND A MENTOR!
NOTHING has been more critical to my success than mentorship.
- Mentorship gave me the keys to unlock my potential.
- Filled me with courage to fight the good fight and do the seemingly impossible.
- Fueled my growth and accelerated my path towards becoming the man and entrepreneur I am today.
And it’s this powerful, emotionally-charged relationship with mentorship that’s made me hold off on producing a video on the topic.
But now, speaking as someone who’s been on BOTH sides of the equation (I get dozens of requests every week)…
… I feel it’s time to do my duty and share the 4 steps to landing a kickass mentor.
One of the biggest hangups that young entrepreneurs (and experienced ones alike) face when reaching out to potential mentors is that they feel they have no value to offer back.
And in Step #3 (2:45 of the video), I’ll fill you in on the EXACT thing you can do to make sure you’re not only giving value back to your mentor, but keeping them engaged for the long haul.
So I challenge you TODAY to watch the video and use these 4 steps to either find yourself a mentor, or deepen your relationship with the ones you currently have.
And if you do have a mentor, leave a comment below and tell me the steps YOU took to find them, and how they’ve helped you and your business along the way.
