Find a Mentor and Learn from Them
Are you sick and tired of doing the things that you do because you don’t see fast results? Do you feel that you have already did your best but nothing seems to happen? Let me tell you, You still have so much to learn. To better understand what I am talking about, here is my Financial Freedom Tip #3.
What is the Problem?
Many people think that they don’t need help and they can learn everything just by themselves. That’s why most of the time they fail and even if they succeed it takes so much time before they achieve it. Going to your everyday routine is really tiring especially if you have done it for a pretty long time but your goal is not yet achieved. Sometimes people tend to give up immediately because there is no one that motivates or gives them advice on whether they are doing things right or wrong. I believe that your major problem right now is that you don’t know where to continue or for some they don’t know where to start.
What is the Solution?
Financial Freedom Tip #3:
Find a Mentor and Learn From Them
I recommend that you find a mentor. Someone that has the knowledge of the chosen field that you want. In this way, you will not have a hard time figuring out what and what not to do. Your mentor will be the one who will guide and give you advice as you continue venturing life.
Actually I was also in the same shoes as you few months ago. I really wanted to make some money online. It is because I know that working at the comfort of your home is way better than going everyday to your work place. You will have no boss to follow and you control your time. I also wanted to have some extra cash to help pay my expenses.
The first job that I found online is survey taking. I was so excited because I thought that it would be the answer to my problem. So I tried several survey sites. I gave much time everyday to answer surveys and even try offers. But then later on, I realized that I am not getting enough payout. That’s why I decided to quit on it and try something else.
That’s when I learned about email marketing. I bought a product online called Inbox Blueprint. It is a step by step blueprint that teaches its members to earn from using your emails. At the beginning it was exciting especially that they promised that I would earn so much from it. So I followed the steps and was able to finish my first month. But later on, I encountered several problem and I had so many questions in my mind that I want to have answers. But there appear to be no one that can help me. Although the program has support team, you still have to send a ticket before you can have your answers. That made me think that it is not the one for me.
I realized that in order to achieve your goal, having someone that you can ask guide and questions is really important. As for my experience I directly jumped into survey sites which later on was not a good idea. I then went into buying a product that I though that could help me. But later on I realized that buying a product is not enough. You should always see if it has a support team that can help you whenever you have questions in mind.
So I was fortunate enough that after the failure of the business I took, I bumped in Wealthy Affiliate. It is somehow the same with the product that I bought because it has also step by step process that teaches its members to build their own online business. But the difference of wealthy affiliate is that they have a very helpful community. I mean they have real people inside.
I know that you have facebook right? Wealthy Affiliate is somehow the same with facebook that you can easily connect to your friends. You can easily send messages to them and get answers right away. But the good part is that they have videos, lessons, and trainings that can give you head start in building your own online business. Honestly I have no prior experience in website building. I even hate programming when I was in college. But I didn’t find any problem creating my website. Right now my focus is on building my content that is the primary factor of the success of this kind of business. Indeed, they provide great mentoring that helped me achieve where I am right now.
As for everyone that is still in the midst of confusion on where to go and how to start. I recommend that you find a mentor and learn from them. Take them to lunch, ask for tips, and learn from them. You don’t have to recreate your own business plan. Just follow what successful people has done and it would bring you to a faster results.
After you have learned something new, Take Action! It is not enough to just learn new ideas, it is also important to apply it in real life.
