Let me give you 4 simple points to help you find a good online business mentor:
1. They must have honesty, integrity and credibility. 2. They must have legitimate, successful experience in this industry. 3. They must have a proven, verifiable track record. 4. They must be able to answer in clear terms most basic question every online marketer asks when starting this business. It goes something like this:
"I am still fairly new to this whole Internet marketing thing. I've tried a handful of opportunities and spent hundreds of dollars on information and services so far. I've gotten nowhere. I need to start making money now! Can you help me finally grow a reliable income source online like you did?"
If your potential mentor fulfills all of these categories, then you are on your way to online success. But if not, run away as fast as you can. You will lose more than gain.
Once you find this person(s) listen and follow their lead. And when you become successful you can become a mentor to your list of proteges'and help them succeed,too.
