I have been dabbling online for many years, like many would be entrepreneurs I bought various courses, some good some not so good and joined membership sites. However it is a bit like learning a foreign language if you skip from one course to another you may learn a few phrases but there is no method, if you stick to a good course have individual training, or live in the country and speak to the natives you will learn more and success with be faster.
If your mentor has a good tried and tested system that is producing good results you know if you follow it completely you will make money and reach success. If you learn a bit here and a bit there you will have some technical skills but you won't have a working system. You may also suffer from information overload. Along the way and give up on your dream of success.
How will you know you have the right mentor for you? When you watch videos by your would be Mentor do you feel fired up, are they moving at a speed that suits you or are they over-simplifying, or does it seem too complicated? Are they boring you to death with chit chat, or getting to the point and keeping you interested? What suits one person won't appeal to others? Sometimes you have to re-watch videos to understand all the points which makes video training so useful. However some people prefer the written word or hands-on workshops.
How is the training delivered? Is there a community of like-minded people you can join. Decide what is important to you and then find someone to train you whose style you can relate to.
Probably one of the most important factors when you start online, are the products provided by your mentor. Are they good value, excellent products that provide the information your customers are looking for, also are you shown how to find customers in the first place. You need advice on the best way to market the products
I have had a number of mentors over the years but at last I am making progress, I don't feel overwhelmed, I am excited to learn new techniques; (the internet is always changing, what worked last year may not continue to work in the future). I have at last found someone whose training style suits me. I belong to a community of like-minded people and love spending time growing my business. However you may prefer not to have the community feeling, everyone is different in their preferences. There are many affiliate programs advertised on Google, or in forums, type in the niche that suits you and make a choice by testing some products etc.
Working at home wherever that is, is great. For us it is now winters in the warmer climate of Spain. The beauty of this business you need little more than a laptop and a good internet connection, so can work almost anywhere. Whatever your dreams make them happen, work out a plan and work the plan, until you have what you are striving for.
