Mentorship: How to double your chances of success and improve your business!
Today’s blog is about mentorship and marketing mentorship in particular. Mentorship is a powerful way to secure your businesses success, improve your skills and make some new connections along the way.
Do you want to double your chances of success in business? Then get a mentor!
The success rate of mentored small businesses compared to those without a mentor is stunning! 70 percent * of mentored businesses survive more than five years, that’s double the rate for non-mentored small businesses over that same period.
I don’t know about you but I know I’d like to double my chances for success.
A mentor will help you find weaknesses in your business model. This is a key part of growing. Gary Vaynerchuk talks a lot about focusing on your strengths and eliminating your weaknesses. A mentor can help.
What is a Mentor?
A mentor is someone who teaches or gives help and advice to those who less experienced, in a particular area, field or endeavor. A mentor is trusted counselor or a guide.
Great Reasons to Get a Mentor
This is a great quote that I think rings really true.
“A great mentor has a knack for making us think we are better than we think we are. They force us to have a good opinion of ourselves, let us know they believe in us. They make us get more out of ourselves, and once we learn how good we really are, we never settle for anything less than our very best”. – The Prometheus Foundation
Here’s another one from a young digital entrepreneur
“It’s very hard to be successful without having a good mentor, it is essential to have someone you can look up to and emulate. Also, a mentor will show you the tricks and pitfalls of the game because they have likely already been around the block.”
Top 10 Benefits of Mentorship **
Here is a helpful acronym that I borrowed and added on to.
M – Motivates you to accomplish more than you think you can.
E – Expects the best of you.
N – Never gives up on you or lets you give up on yourself.
T – Tells you the truth, even when it hurts.
O – Occasionally kicks your butt.
R – Really cares about you and your success.
S – Sales, can increase due to support and direction.
H – Helps you grow, personally, professional and your business.
I – Introspective. A good mentor helps you reflect and move forward.
P – Planning for performance.
As you can see getting a mentor can be quite helpful for you in your business.
