Have you ever had a really great idea? Have you ever had a million great ideas? Today we look at how a business mentor can help you refine your ideas and meet with success more easily.
Aurora Rogers and I share about our journies through business and life. Please listen to the full episode here:
How can a business mentor help you?
Aurora, can you share about your mentorship journey?
Yes, I had the opportunity to meet with a very famous coach. He challenged me that the most successful pioneer starts with one offer, one marketing method, or one offer, one marketing method, and one main platform they focus on.
So, I was a little bit crushed, because ideation is my top strength. So, what I'm about to share with you is all about submitting to wisdom. In submitting to wisdom, we now have only one offer.
How do I find a business mentor?
Truly, the transformation we experienced with this coach was such a blessing. The favor of God is so amazing that this coach reached out to me. He was a coach that I looked up to. I've watched his videos.
Then, he reached out to me to say “Anything I can help you with I want to help you with I want to learn more about what you’re doing”.
So, I had a whole hour of somebody's time that doesn't do one-on-one consulting and I'm trying to be faithful for the gift that God gave me and the wisdom that was shared with me.
Who is a mentor in entrepreneurship?
That meeting has changed the dynamic of our program. Last year, we launched more openly. My mentor at the time used a process that featured a free 5-day challenge that led to a 10-day workshop. So, we mirrored her process.
Then I did a 4-hour live stream that was a beta test. We didn't have that many students, but it's a very high ticket offer. So to me, this success was really all we could handle for the trial. It wasn't really like a trial and error, but it was for testing.
So we had a small group and my goal was to just get my investment back, to be honest. I had invested a good chunk of money in mentoring and other things to get to that point. So, if I could just get it back in proof of concept that would be enough for me.
But what I found out about our target audience is they don't really engage with 5-day long events and all of that. I needed to find a different way.
Experiencing coaching from our new mentor changed everything.
What is a business mentor?
Thank you, Aurora for sharing. I think that’s fascinating a lot of entrepreneurs, a lot of business owners start the same way as you. There's something I see that needs to be different and I know I can do something about it.
Then we start asking those questions like what if? How could I? Right. Exactly as you did, but not all of us leave our careers behind in one swoop and go and do something completely different. But some of us do and I think in our heads we're all moving in that direction.
Having the right mentor to keep us moving forward and help us refine our ideas, helps us meet success more quickly and efficiently.
