How To Choose A Coach/Mentor

There are so many opportunities in life to get sidetracked.
Having a coach will help keep you accountable and focused.

The smartest thing you could ever do is get yourself a coach/mentor.
All the big stars have a coach, some have several mentors. Each
one teach their own specialty. How do you choose the right coach?

If you were married and were seeking marriage counseling,
would you talk to someone who's never been married? I don't think so!
So would it make more sense to get coaching from somebody who has
experienced what you are seeking, or somebody who hasn't?

Many of the coaches today in network marketing have never built an
organization. Or they built it 5, 10, 15 years ago, but they can't
build it today. So these network marketing coaches go out and teach
people how to do what they can't do. What they did 10 years ago
worked 10 years ago. But it doesn't work today.

So instead of being on the cutting edge of technology and learning
and USING the state-of-the-art in network marketing business-
building, they hold themselves up as a coach!

If you're going to be coached, you want to be coached by somebody
who is currently doing it NOW, someone who is active today.

It's crazy, but there are even "coaches" who promote it as a virtue
that they no longer do network marketing. They'll tell you this lets
them be objective. They'll tell you that you don't need to worry
about them recruiting you into some other business.

Here is the truth: there's a lot more money in network marketing than
there is in coaching - IF you can actually do network marketing, then
you can do the coaching anyway, while you're building your business.

So why isn't this person in network marketing anymore?
Easy. It's because they can't do it. Plain and simple, they can't build it.

It is completely insane to choose as your coach someone who is not
currently successful at network marketing. You are being ripped-off,
plain and simple.

Here's another thing, 90% of these coaches tell you that YOU have to
change. They say you have to get out of your comfort zone, become
this "A" type personality. And THAT is the reason it doesn't work.

Most top business people have or once had a true mentor, someone
who's done it before and knows what to do. The person with a mentor
has a big advantage. I would be honored to be YOUR mentor, no
matter what company you are in.

As your coach, I will believe in YOU until you can believe in yourself!

Reminds me of a line from some movie
"Those who can do, those who can't teach"
