What is the quickest way to learn something new? Read books? Good. Watch videos? Great. Find yourself a guru/mentor/success coach? Definitely! I know from experience that I can learn on my own by plugging along with manuals and demonstrations. However, I have often found that my interpretation and the techniques that I learn from self-instruction and self-discovery have got to be the most convoluted and the hardest way of doing whatever it is that I am setting out to do. Trial and error? Ouch! It works, and at some point I know that I will probably learn that way too, but it is slow and painful. There is nothing like having someone who is an expert to show you how it is done. Usually, I react by saying “I didn’t realize how easy this really is!” Obviously, to me, I had not figured it out on my own. So now, I always start by finding an expert to guide me, my guru.
I started a new business recently and …
…I am new to the industry. It is the network marketing industry, what is also referred to as multi-level marketing, or MLM. Whatever you may want to call it, the business is all about cultivating relationships, prospecting and bringing people into your business, as a new customer or as a business building partner. Sounds like most other types of businesses, but there are things to learn about every business that will be the steps to success. This is where my success coaches have come along, right when I most needed them, and have been taking me to new levels.
First and foremost, I believe that the internet is our greatest new tool for any business, and especially to build a business based on relationships. What a fantastic tool have we received in our lives – the internet; access to millions and millions of people. I have been able to find just about everything I have ever reached out for on the internet, obscure and forgotten books and movies, music, news and information about pretty much anything. Also, I have found people. People I have not spoken to or seen in many years. But, perhaps just as important, I have found my newest and most profound gurus.
My first personal success coach, and now a friend, is Drew Berman. I found Drew through searching Google for internet marketers and trainers. His site, www.DrewBerman.com, popped up after doing some searching on pertinent key words. I already knew his name from talking with other network marketers that I know, so I followed him to his site, www.MySuccessGuru.com, watched his video and decided to follow up with him. I joined his team to learn how to harness the internet as a prospecting tool. After phone calls together I began to learn what it takes to be successful in getting your presence on the internet active and how to drive your site up in the Google searches. It is not easy and there is a lot of work behind it. Drew is one person that I recommend if you are trying to do the same thing. His learning curve was much steeper than yours ever has to be.
I will write next about another industry Guru that has inspired me and is helping me on my journey. Take care and I will see you then!
