Mentorship has always been something that we talk about in the business world and in the arena of sports. However, it seems that fewer people are open to mentoring others these days, and treat it as if it were a bother. How do you view being a mentor for someone? Would you gladly do it? Or, would you look at it as an inconvenience or something you don’t really have time to do?
While you may be thinking you need one less thing to add to your plate, the truth is, mentoring others is a great way for you to grow your business and to attract the type of individuals you want to be involved in your business with you. So, what do you have to do in order to make this happen? It is all necessarily done as a result of being a mentor?
While mentorship isn’t the only way to do this, it’s probably one of the best ways for you to grow your business and your following. What can you do to ensure that you are headed in the right direction and growing your business on a continual basis? Teaching others is without a doubt a great way to make this happen, and I’ll share with you just how promising helping someone else can really be.
The Gift of Mentorship
In reality, being able to help someone else is really a gift. Albeit it takes time and energy, let’s not forget that it’s more blessed to give than to receive. Mentoring others is a beautiful thing because not only can you share with them what you did, but you can share with them how you did it.

Mentorship is underrated, and in most of the country it’s only viewed as something teachers do with students, or coaches do with athletes. Whatever happened to successful business people reaching out and mentoring aspiring young adults that would like to do the same?
It’s sad that mentoring others is underrated, and in most of the country it’s only viewed as something teachers do with students, or coaches do with athletes. Whatever happened to successful business people reaching out and mentoring aspiring young adults that would like to do the same? Did you know that the industry leaders in online marketing are those that focus on mentoring others? Consider the following names in online marketing like:
- Ray Higdon
- Diane Hochman
- Rob Fore
- Lawrence Tam
- Dani Johnson
There are so many more out there, but the need is there and the vision for online marketing has been growing as more and more people prove that marketing online works. So, does it really pay off for these leaders?
Why Mentorship Pays Off Big Time
Overall, it’s true that mentorship pays off in the bigger scheme of things. Mentoring others is without a doubt rewarding, and above all it attracts people to want to do business with you. When you give to others and you teach without hoarding information your results will speak for themselves. It’s a pretty simple formula.
Just remember, writing books is great, but you won’t have to go there when you can teach in other ways. It’s a matter of sharing what you know, and above all, continue to focus on what you are good at. If you can do this and FOCUS your gifts and talents in these areas, you’ll have long lasting success.
I hope that this has helped you to somewhat understand how you can easily grow your home based business. If you simply reach out to others, and teach and share what you know, you’ll have no problem building a following if you focus on “mentorship”.
