3 Volunteers Needed. I Will Mentor You For Free and Document Your Success Here on Forum

by Stuart2588 30 replies
Hey everybody

I know that alot of newbie warriors out there are struggling to make any money online.

I know exactly how you are feeling as I was once in your shoes myself.

I have decided to give something back to the forum, in the form of help to you newbies.

What I am going to do is look for 3 volunteers that are willing to listen to me and let me mentor you for a while. I am going to lead you by the hand to help you get started in the business.

You have to be somebody that has an interest or hobby of some sort.

I will personally tell you everything that you need to do and will practically do it for you. Although I wont create the content, so you need to be really interested and keen to get started.

This is a one time offer as I usually charge for this service but a post from a certain warrior has got me feeling generous today.

I would be keen to hear from some uk warriors also. Just drop me a pm if you are interested. A list of your interests would also be handy.

I will start a new thread very soon to document your progress when we get started if anybody wants to follow it along.


Good luck

Stu

      That's a really nice offer Stu

      But forgive me for asking, what's your credentials and why should we listen to you?

      I'm not being awkward, just genuinely like to know a bit about the person who's offering to be my mentor.

            sense as to is legit and who is not. It only takes 5 minutes or
            less of conversation.

                Any help would be great help for me at this point. I'd love a mentor. If you haven't gotten your 3 yet, let me know. I'd love to talk to you about it.

                  Hi,

                  I'm interested. I'm quite clueless about im, but have design background. And now my income are from internet 100% but purely from my private services.

                  Never sell or promote any products via internet yet, but it's the new territory that I'm ready to work for full-time.

                  If there's still room left, I'm in.

                  Thanks,
                  Lee

                    New members here are constantly asking for free mentors - and a mentor can be anyone who knows more than you do and is willing to teach you.

                    Judging someone in five minutes means you miss knowing some good people. Setting yourself up to judge a mentor means you need have the qualifications yourself to make the judgment.

                    Stu -

                    For best results, give your experience, name, link to a site outside the WF for credibility. State what level of student you can teach - and what area you are qualified to mentor in.

                    Ask those interested to give you info about themselves and ask any questions they have by PM and be selective about who you choose to mentor.

                    Qualify yourself as a mentor - and qualify your students for the best chance of a successful training experience. The mentoring is free - but time is valuable for both mentor and "mentee".

                      Hes offering his time to others who may need it, and if thats what he wants to do so be it.

                      If the warriors who want to be "mentored" by him want to be mentored by the first post they see then let it be.

                        Dear Stuart:

                        I would like to give you at least the benefit of doubt. I have read your posts in the past, and I would like to be mentored by you.

                        Please count me in.

                            I think this is a great idea, and from the number of posts I have seen in various places around this forum, the offer is RARE!

                            Some people would rather sell a $7 report or a $40 eBook, or even a package of unheard of, or overrated contents to try and make money from NEWBIES, and here we have a guy offering FREE assistance to 3 people who may otherwise be struggling to gain some internet success. It amazes me that some would "question" his "qualifications"

                            Who needs qualifications to mentor someone? and why would those asking NOT have checked out this guys 300+ posts on this forum to see what sort of person he might be, and/or some of the substance he may offer!?

                            One post here suggested that "this was the purpose of joining this offer, to test the ability of this member to mentor", and "Who syas you are any judge of anyone's ability?"

                            Some of us should get off our high horses, and let others do what they want. The true test will be in the value derived by those who were lucky enough to join up. Anyone elses opinion, means nothing!

                            Just my 2 cents

                              I'd be interested as well.

                              You mention hobbies. I play a Celtic harp, do various handcrafts, live with 4 Dachshunds and 1 African Grey parrot, oil-paint nature scenes, love bird-watching and am a newby avid fisherman, learning more every day. Want more?

                              I love to write. I want to help others solve their problems and/or make life better for them. That's why I want to affiliate and why I 'm in IM and copywriting in the first place.

                              If you are willing, then so am I.

                              Sincerely,

                                    Who Wants to be a Mentornaire?

                                    Well, that would be me! I have a ton of hobbies from scuba diving, extreme travel (including South America), lifetime fisherman, pc gaming geek...but mostly a Web Developer...for over eleven years, now. I pretty much dream in 'code'...Yikes, can't believe I just admitted that.

                                    I have dabbled in IM over the past years, but I think my background with development may be getting in the way of the right frame on mind.

                                    I would absolutely love the opportunity to have your mentoring skills and help in this new future of mine...I will warn you in advance that I am a certifiable goofball!

                                    Please check out my portfolio, if you think that will give you a better idea of who I am..

                                    Have a fantastic evening...and if you have to pass on me, I totally understand, but will be watching to hear about how thing go!

                              I ran an offline business mentoring service for five years. I was responsible for a bank of some 200 experienced business people looking to 'give back' to would-be entrepreneurs. Judging our long term business survival rates compared to that of the national average, we were successful. (we more than doubled the survival rate over 2 years trading)

                              The hardest part of that job wasn't finding people who were willing to offer their services (did I mention that the mentors didn't get paid) or finding business owners that wanted help, it was matching the two up.

                              Each party had a responsibility to their own business to find out as much as possible about the other. The matching of skills to needs was never an easy one. It was only common sense to find out about those skills and wants before contact was established.

                              No-one is telling anyone what to do, rather advising as to what the best course of action would be - from experience.

                              Personally, I don't know the OP. I thought it would have been a good idea for him to lay his stall out first, so to speak. Just saying "Who wants to be mentored?" is a bit simplistic.

                              However, if you want to take him up on his offer, I'm certainly not stopping you - it may well be the best thing you've ever done - but I couldn't say that with any confidence because I've got nothing to base that on.

                                Personally, I don't know the OP. I thought it would have been a good idea for him to lay his stall out first, so to speak. Just saying "Who wants to be mentored?" is a bit simplistic.

                                However, if you want to take him up on his offer, I'm certainly not stopping you - it may well be the best thing you've ever done - but I couldn't say that with any confidence because I've got nothing to base that on.

                                My thoughts exactly.

                                This reminded me of a recent wso by someone saying "I'll make your product for free and we can share the profits - you can't lose". It's only a good offer if you know something about the value being offered, which in this case is the person and their skills/experience/teaching skills.

                                Knowing someone is not the same as being able to teach others and not everyone is suitable to work with everyone else. Anyone jumping in without a thought to matching the person to them is asking for trouble when a few questions would clear most things up.

                                I've mentored quite a few IMers and you can do a one-size fits all approach, even more so when you don't know anything about each other.

                                  I tend to approach people - especially fellow Warriors! - with the attitude that I can learn something from every single person on this earth. When paying for mentoring, yes - you definitely check to see if you and your prospective mentor are compatible.

                                  But this is a free offer. Presumably, testimonials would be involved - that's fine. I love endorsing services and products that can help someone in some way.

                                  And I am sure that I for one will not be any the worse for being mentored by Stuart.

                                    Yes, we can learn from everybody, but it may be what NOT to do.

                                    If you've had dealings with Stuart before and you feel comfortable - fine. Worth exploring more.

                                    One thing though, in this instance there is NO difference between a paid and non-paid service. However informal the arrangements are you should approach it as if you were paying for the service. In actual fact, you do any voluntary offer a dis-service if you don't approach it that way.

                                      I would love the opportunity to be mentored. i'm not sure if this is still available. I would do everything you said needed to be done.

      Stu,

      Sorry to be so ignorant but - what qualifies you to mentor people?

      How can I tell whether your offer applies to me or not?

      I'm not sure if I know you or what your specialisation or skillset is, so your offer is interesting but still somewhat of an unknown quantity.

      Regards

      Andy

      Hey Stuart, I applaud you for the fact you want to spend your time helping others.

      Here are my 2 cents (something I did while mentoring others as well as mentored by others):

      For the mentee:

      1. What do I want to get out of this mentoring?

      2. What are the plans lay out?

      3. What is the meeting up period like?

      4. How is the meeting done?

      5. What is the expectation and commitment from me?

      6. How does the mentor guide me based on my unique strength, preference and goal?

      7. How long is the mentorship?

      8. How I can help the mentor (if any)? This put you ahead of the rest as you have the give attitude.

      The journey is going to get tough and when things turned out unexpected, with all these clear foundation, it will be easier to move on an advance.

      Cheers,
      John
