Why I recommend you get a Business Coach

Save time and frustration; get a mentor
If you read my ‘About Page‘, you will see that I struggled for many years to finally start earning a decent income online. Fact is; I wanted to get a Business Coach very early on, but my financial situation didn’t allow for it. Business Coaches or Mentors are expensive right?

So, instead of saving up to get a Mentor I started buying Internet Marketing (IM) Courses to help me get ahead. After all, most mentors charge in excess of $500 on the lower end of the scale and IM Courses are pretty affordable. Heck; there are even hundreds of FREE tutorials out there. But here’s the thing…

You buy a cheap IM Course which then comes with an OTO (One Time Offer), which is only advertised after your initial spend. So, to make sure you don’t miss anything you buy again. Now that $4.95 course you just bought has in fact cost you $4.95 + say $27 for the OTO. Then a second OTO is offered which is a monthly recurring membership fee and if you’re like me; you don’t take up this offer because you can’t afford it. While you learn a little something of value from the $32 you just spent, you have no idea how to get this to work for you and so, you venture off and buy another IM Course or product to fulfil your needs.

Welcome to the world of the ‘Bright Shiny Object’ (BSO)
I’ll write another post about BSO’s, but for now, know this. Once you fall into the BSO trap, the money you spend buying more BSO products or courses will inevitably be way more than what you would have paid for a good business coach or mentor from the outset.

Buying BSO products may teach you a thing or two of real value, but in many case you are not held accountable and do not implement what you learned. A Mentor will hold you accountable and will scold you if you don’t do the tasks assigned. Think of it like coming to school without having done your homework. It may seem childish, but it works…

Now, the good news is: A Business Coach or Internet Marketing Mentor doesn’t need to cost a fortune. In fact, I just recently (this week at time of posting) started working with Dean Holland, Craig Crawford and Robert Phillips who together run an annual 4x week coaching workshop known as:

The Quick Start Challenge

I don’t think ‘they’ are taking on new members for this years coaching, but if you are serious about your online future and don’t have 100’s of dollars to spend on a business coach,  it may be worth waiting for next years event – don’t waste your money on bright shiny objects!

Have you used a Mentor and what was your experience?
