Seek Your Guru

Hi guys,

If you haven’t got your mentor yet then I strongly recommend you get one. The world of Internet Marketing is a scary place… well ok maybe scary is a little strong but it is certainly an overwhelming sea of information and advice and before long you can find yourself totally lost and feeling no better off than you did when you started.

Your mentor is the one safe place you can keep coming back to when you’re getting a bit too deep and need a life-jacket. It’s hard to say who is the best because people connect to different people, I’ve had experiences with some top gurus and have gained some priceless knowledge from them but there’s only a few that I have really connected to and they’re all so different in the ways they teach but they have been my life-jackets.

John Thornhill, Dave Nicholson, Liz Tomey and Jeff Dedrick have taught me what makes a successful Intenet business and Kelly Felix, Mike Long and David Walker are also a wealth of support and expertise.

If you can grab coaching from your mentors then treat it as gold and really do what they say. John Thornhill’s Coaching and Coaching with Liz Tomey are both top notch and packed with great support and guidance.  And you will never stop learning; currently I am enrolled on David Walker’s 30 Day Marketer, I love David’s style and the way he teaches – when an hour flies by you know it’s a good coaching program.

So all these people I can strongly recommend but at the end of the day you must do your own research on top marketers who you enjoy listening to and learning from. And always remember to surround yourself with those who you aspire to and you will most definately be a great success.

Have a productive day,
Loretta

  1. I’m looking forward to what David has next….it even seems a bit slow at the moment. I hope the next session really pushes us. As far as mentoring goes, I think it works best as a one on one relationship. Then the mentor knows your problems and maybe even your aims. Of course one on one coaching costs a lot so many people can’t afford it so this kind of coaching is the next best thing. It probably also warms people up to make the next jump to a one on one coaching program.

    • Hi Ade, thanks for your message. Hope you found David’s course useful, I do agree that one-on-one coaching is much better and if you ever get the opportunity for it, then it can make a huge difference to your outlook as well as your direction. I think just having somebody of that caliber talk to you personally can reassure you that you are not in this alone.

      All the best,
      Loretta

  2. I am very much a “newbie” and feel like a fish out of water but I have followed a few mentors like John Thornhill and Dave Nicholson and have learned a little. I can relate to you Loretta as I have read your earlier blogs as well as the last one. You seem to be quite confident now and I hope to improve and begin to understand the complexities of this thing called internet marketing by following David Walker’s method. I am quite enjoying his easy and non threatening relaxed way of getting his points across. Beejay

    • Hey Beejay, thanks for your post. I can fully relate to feeling like a newbie; something I felt for far too long but following somebody like John Thornhill can pull you out of that fairly quickly. One thing to always remember though is that we will never be rid of that ‘newbie’ feeling because there is always something new around the corner but knowing it’s there makes the difference between being a newbie and staying one.

      Take care,
      Loretta

  3. Hi Loretta, I am finding David’s delivery style very unique and refreshing. I too have taken other coaching, but David seems to be more of a mentor than others I have been with, which is brilliant. Good luck with the course!

    Enjoy the journey.

    Mandy

    • Hi Mandy, thanks for that. Yes I do like David’s delivery and it’s nice to learn something more each time. Take care and good luck in your endeavors too 🙂

  4. I made the mistake of trying to learn everything through buying training product after product. But finding a mentor at an affordable cost has been very beneficial, this is the second one I have done this year. David’s delivery is different to what I am used to and very refreshing. Wish you success with the course.

    • Hi Paul, thanks for your post. Yes it is so easy to buy into lots of training products but I don’t think you can have enough coaching from those that have been where you are now. Wishing you success also.

  5. Hi Loretta

    Just thought I’d drop bye, I’m one of David Walkers students too.

    Hope to see you around, good luck with everything.

    Kevin

    • Hi Kevin, hope you’re enjoying David’s course also. Have seen you around 🙂 (in a good way though lol), good luck with everything yourself too. Take care.

  6. Loretta,

    I just popped over from David Walker’s site.

    Why is your novel sitting on your hard drive collecting dust? As of last week my comedy novel, The Mary Celeste papers, is on Amazon Kindle collecting money. See here: http://www.amazon.co.uk/The-Mary-Celeste-Papers-ebook/dp/B009EONL36/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1349264256&sr=8-1

    If you have written or half-written a novel, put it on Kindle and learn to market it. In fact, you would do well to go over to my website at www. paulgallimore.net and take a look at the posts there. I am adding posts there that describe my progress and I promise that if self-publishing interests you, you can learn things from it. I will be adding another post this week that will interest UK authors in particular.

    If you want some advice on this, please do feel free to email me and ask. There is already a lot I could tell you about the process. I expect to hear froom you!

    Regards

    Paul

    • Thanks Paul for your great post; I have been on your site and have taken notes 🙂 I’m coming to the end of my uni studies and you have renewed my interest in book publishing again although I have lots of projects to get through beforehand I will definately be looking into the Kindle publishing. Thanks again and all the best to you. Will catch up with you soon.

  7. Hey Loretta,

    Couldn’t agree anymore with you and I’m glad it didn’t take a lifetime to realize I needed help from someone who was successful already at Internet Marketing.

    I have seen the styles of all the people that you mentioned here and even though each one has their own unique style and voice, any of them can take you to success if you’re willing to put in the time and hard work.

    Great read and hope to see you at the top very soon my friend, take care! 😉

  8. Hi Loretta, I’m a fellow student on Alex Jeffreys’ course. Just thought I’d drop by your blog and say hello 🙂 What you say here about getting a mentor is so, so important. I think something that puts many people off is that they’re worried about the costs of one-to-one training, or perhaps they’re a little unsure of themselves and don’t necessarily even want that personal contact so early on in their business, perhaps being worried about being discouraged by criticism. But in those cases I think that someone can still have a mentor. If you’re not currently in a position to have one-on-one coaching or don’t even want it right now, you can still find someone who you admire, look up to and from whom you draw inspiration. People such as Alex Jeffreys, for example, have a wealth of good advice, experience and training, and if you can find someone like this who you can respect and learn from then it is absolutely invaluable to the growth of your business.

    All the best on your road to success Loretta, you’ll do great! 🙂

    • Hey Glenn, thanks so much for your post. I’m really enjoying Alex’s coaching and look forward to catching up with you again along the way. All the best to you too and we’ll both do great 🙂
