What a incredible weekend it has been. Blogging while Justin Woolf was reviewing keyword search and the importance of being precise and drilling into a niche. Advertisement reviews with Sophia Rashkin. Getting videos critiqued by Benny Bells and Kevin Levonas. Being in the Loyal 9 Revolution headquarters. Being with other marketers. Hearing their trials. Learning from their mistakes.
No words can accurately described what the weekend brought. Clarity and peace. Willingness and direction. Longing and anticipation. Such pale terms.
Being with the Loyal 9 and Team Rashkin for a few hours is a privilege. Being with them for a whole weekend? Awesome. Having them training and reviewing your work directly? Priceless. That was this weekend.
All the superlatives in the word are without meaning if no action gets taken afterward. If nothing comes of this weekend, it was only a good time in New Jersey. Action must be taken. Action will be taken.
Now the action has direction. Now the skills to correct, aim again and go are learned. Now the understanding of good marketing has been absorbed. Now is the time. Now is the day. All will be seized. It is all mine.
Your road to the Legacy Mastermind event starts by applying to start your profitable business.
Very few are lucky enough to have been born with all the knowledge, know-how and experience to do whatever they want to the fullest of any human ability. The rest of us need someone to train us. Someone to guide us. Someone to give advice based on experience and testing. Someone to mentor us.
A mentor is more than just a teacher or instructor. A mentor is a trusted guide. A mentor taught Odysseus’ son Telemachus. A mentor is someone close to you. Someone whose advise and teaching you long for. Someone who can be bold and blunt, without it being taken personal. Someone who can correct your quickly and applaud you thoroughly. A congratulations from a mentor is meaningful; deep.
Mentoring is about building trust. The mentor must be trusted by the student. The student must be trusted by the mentor. The mentor must trust that a student will do as they instruct. No whining. No backtalk. Just do it. A student must trust that a mentor will not put them in harms way or beyond their abilities. Otherwise, the student will likely question every instructions. The mentor’s word is absolute and final. The student’s results are beneficial and enlightening.
At 5 Point Management, the M in SMILE stands the Mentoring. We believe that everyone needs a mentor. We believe that everyone needs someone to mentor. By having a mentor, one grows in knowledge. By being a mentor, one grows in understanding. To desire a subject is to learn it. To know a subject is to teach it.
