Five Surefire Signs You Need a Mentor

One of the biggest mistakes I see entrepreneurs and business owners make in growing their business is doing everything on their own. Whether they think they cannot afford it or don’t see the value in it – a mentor is a faster and more effective way to grow your business – with a lot less effort too!

A mentor is someone who can see the blind spots in your business, the loopholes in your mindset, and the hidden treasures that await you. It’s surprising to me that so many individuals put off getting help from an outside source until they are at a breaking point.

But here are five surefire signs you need a mentor. If you find you fit into one or more of these categories, reach out to someone to start moving forward – faster today.

1. You’ve capped your income – you’ve stayed at the same income level for six months or more and haven’t seen a way to earn more without trading more dollars for hours.

2. You’re business isn’t growing or moving forward (or it’s happening at a snail’s pace) –  in addition to finances, this could mean that you aren’t been seen or noticed in your industry, that you haven’t made a significant jump from the year before, or that you’re stuck offering and doing the same thing without any improvements

3. You feel burned-out, overwhelmed, or are spinning your wheels.

4. You are lacking in knowledge or know-how on ways to get your business out there, grow, expand, or earn more money.

5. The things you are offering are no longer working as they once were.

You can find yourself needing support in one or all of these areas, the important thing to note is that you can move faster and with more ease if you hire a mentor or a coach to help you get there. A mentor provides accountability, encouragement, support, and a direct push into your un-comfort zone, where the exact place resides for you to grow in all ways.

Are you ready to become sensational??!!!

Did you know that a person needs to hear from you anywhere between seven and twenty-seven times before they decide to do business with you? Did you know that the majority of business owners give up just before they reach that point with a potential client?

These are common marketing statistics that individuals often forget about, leaving you, the business owner,  feeling like you are wasting your time and energy. But what if there was a way to serve your prospects and clients in a fun and easy way that was guaranteed to bring you more profit to your bottom line?

Well, it’s possible and so excited to share with you that I’ve teamed up with Sabrina Risley of Behind the Moon, Inc to sharing these secrets on our upcoming program “Service to Sensational.”

If you’ve been following me for the last six months you’ve seen that my business has skyrocketed and grown with very little effort – creating a grassroots effect loaded with referrals and repeat business.

I’ve seen how a service mindset along with effective follow-up, being a go-giver, and connector can quickly shift your business.

What I’ve realized is that service doesn’t have to be hard, nor complicated. In fact it should be simple, easy, and fun. 

In Service to Sensational we will be sharing tips on how to stop making the mistake of finding a prospect, following up once or twice and then letting them go and instead finding the right people, keep them in your pipeline and never let them disappear or forget about you.

Just know that creating a consistent service plan that keeps you in front of your market does three very important things for your business growth:

1. It helps you reach your prospect the necessary amount of times it takes for them to make a decision. That means when they are ready to make a purchase – you are there just waiting for them. Unlike so many others who walk away just before that person was ready to make a purchase. You see when you give up on a prospect and walk away, you’ve done half the work and along comes a competitor in your industry and since you’ve already prepped the prospect – they’ll get the sale – because they are right there!

2. It’s about being a giver. It’s not ALL about getting a sale, it’s also about connecting other people to resources and helping them to grow their business or get their needs met when you aren’t the person to meet them. This builds incredible trust and shows that you really care about the people in your world.

3.  It builds your referral base. When you stay in touch with people on a consistent basis those people will trust you, so even if they don’t need your services they will always remember you when someone else comes along who does.  Staying in touch and creating an effective follow up system also gives you the open door to ASK for business when you want to. When you don’t stay in touch and call to ask for something it just looks like you are a taker, and nobody likes a taker.
