Anyone have time to be a mentor?

13 replies
Hello there!

I am pretty new to the whole online buisness thing and would really like maybe a mentor or someone to talk with to just bounce ideas and things off of. I am currently in the Marine Corps and my wife and I just had our son Conner who came 3 months early and was in the NICU for 102 days . He is doing great now though so we count our blessings.

I started an online buisness dropshipping products in a niche and am working hard on linking to try and get it up and running in a good SERP by the time i get out of the Marine Corps at the end of May. One of my good friends John does IM and does pretty well from it, but he lives with his wife in Japan so it can make learning a bit difficult. If you think that you might be interested in helping out that would be great but if not that is ok too. I hope all is well and thank you for your time!

Regaurds,

Nicholas

    I recommoned learning from Mike Dillard, Daegan Smith, George Brown and Mike Kern. Top internet marketers, their mentoring likely wont be free though, but they have great products at reasonable prices you can afford. Just google them

    Nick,

    I am by far no IM expert, but I have been doing this for about 10 years part time. I am ashamed to say I still have a "job" but am close to hitting the full time pay dirt that we all dream about. That being said, I would offer to be your mentor of what i have found that works and also a student of what you have learned as well! I am a firm believer that two, working together, can accomplish great things...

    We are actually somewhat nearby, as i live just east of Columbus, in Pickerington. It would make it possible to meet on occasion, say in Springfield or nearby if we decided it would help.

    The one quote from Sir Winston Churchill is never more appropriate than when applied to IM; "Never, never, never give up!"

    As far as what I have done so far: 1) eBay since 1998 - custom products, 2) Clickbank promotions, 3) Video Marketing - used Jeff Herschey's material (he's former Air Force fighter pilot) and just general seo, Google tricks and whatnot !!

    I am just beginning to play with social networking. I am a geek on the technology side, so not too many things that hit me from the technical side are an issue. I am not really a programmer but have picked up some php and drupal support along the way.

    Let me know if I can help in any way. I am not on here everyday but if you PM me I will send my email over.

    Good Luck and Make it happen!

    Why not look at local networking events for business owners? You're not likely to find someone online whom has not seen you before.

    Nick -- Want to wish you the best of luck. I have found it is hard to understand exactly where to go to learn without paying $10-30 to try to learn. In reading WF I have learned a lot about what I need to learn. Then I read when someone drops in on a person such as yourself and drops wisedom. With the cost of the little ones try just poking around on WF a bit. That's what I'm doing.

    Hello Nick,

    D.W.E. here. I will try my best to help you. What are you going to specialize in? PM me if you don't wish to disclose it. I also was in the military from 99' to 02' 101st Airborne (infantryman). Now I dropship electronics on eBay and Amazon among others:rolleyes: full-time and clear a good six-figures a year. That is not bragging, because my nephew, yes nephew cleared over 600K just during Christmas selling spices(like tumeric, rosemary,etc). So he calls me a broke A$S:p (and yes, Jeff I just shouted out your niche) kiss my tush, we can square off in Retro Fitness parking lot again. Sorry, he will see this I know it.
    Anyway Nick here is a post I put up a while back.

    http://www.warriorforum.com/main-int...-problems.html

    I hope it helps, also I have been receiving alot of PM's on dropshipping so I have decided to post a "best dropshipping practices" thread sometime today and will link it here. Remember this Nick being a serviceman you have something that a lot do not, DRIVE. Drive to see things through to the end. Remember humping (you know what I mean) all that weight? Seemed like forever, right? But when the "10 mile walk" is over, drop rucks, and smoke em' if you got em'.

    Same thing here bro, the walk is long and hard, but when it is over you will be eating steak & eggs.

    The Warrior Forum has many millionaires, thousandaires, and folks who just make a damn good living here. It is a good place to be. Well, enough jaw jacking. I'm going to start writing so I can post. Holler at ya soon. And don't you dare pay someone to teach you, the Warrior Forum is one big FTX (field training exercise) for those who weren't in the military. Damn I loved FTX's. PM if you need to.

    hey mate, i reccommend learning from youtube and video marketing sites, it's amazing the amount of things can be learnt from video marketing. It is like the people are right in front of you teaching you awesome techniques and training you to become better in whatever area you wish. I personally learnt how to build websites and market them from youtube. The best thing is if you don't understand anything you can always rewind and go over it a hundred times until you are familiar with it.
    I wish you all the best brother

    It's a Catch-22. You can't afford a good mentor cause they make too much doing their business to take time away from that for what they would need to be paid. You can get an unproven or less proven mentor, but why pay for that? Look into some quality membership sites that have a good community. You won't get one-on-one, but good people like and know the benfit of sharing.
