In 2013, one of the best decisions I made was to find a mentor. I spent several years treating this business as a hobby which was a huge mistake. I tried every type of business model, but only just to see what it was all about. I didn't take any of them serious and in doing so, wandered around to different shiny objects. That aimless drift lasted several years.
One of my big goals for 2013 was to find the mentor that would lead me away from this aimless wandering. Not only did I achieve that goal, I did it in a big way. I can tell you it has had the biggest impact on my business and the movement of treating this stuff as an actual business.
Outside of perhaps a franchise model, there isn't a blueprint of how to create a successful business. I think that's why so many online businesses fail. I'm sure many die before they are even considered a real business. I knew that was going to be my fate if I didn't change something. When you don't know what you don't know, it's impossible to know the right direction to take.
I made some pretty strict requirements for the mentor I wanted. I know there are hundreds of people online that call themselves mentors. I wanted the right one. My goal was to find a mentor that had a 100% success rate with his students. Someone who has taught and helped all of their students create a successful online business that supports them and allows them to quit their jobs.
Pretty lofty goal, huh? I thought so, until I actually reached it.
I'm now on a path that certainly leads to the exact success I'm looking for. I know this because other students that are just ahead of me in the coaching program have become successful.
Every one of them.
That's not some hype claim. I've talked to them. I talk to them every day. They are the real deal.
On my current path, I'm set to make 2014 the biggest year of success for me yet. The success is as guaranteed as the path, I just have to follow it. Which I have done and will continue to do.
A lot of what I'll be talking about this year on the blog is about what I've done, and what I plan to do. I certainly want to take you with me on this journey.
