Let me show you how.

First of all, even if you ARE considered a pro in this industry, you'd better not get too comfortable with that title. The internet is growing and changing so quickly, that what you are an expert at today, may present you with a lot to learn tomorrow! So, essentially, newbies and old pros are sharing a level playing field. There will always be opportunity to learn something new.

The best way to go about learning is to depend on those who are ahead of you!!! Depend on a mentor! And, that works both ways! YOU will NEED to be willing to BE depended on AS a mentor also!

***Time spent mentoring will berepparttar 102095 most valuable business investment you will ever make! ***

I have hadrepparttar 102096 great fortune of being mentored throughrepparttar 102097 maze of internet business by my good friend Michael Smith. Notice that I said, "Good Friend". That has beenrepparttar 102098 by-product ofrepparttar 102099 mentoring! And a valuable one to boot! It was he who contacted me with a suggestion for my site. I took him up onrepparttar 102100 suggestion, and his willingness to give help whenever I needed it was thrown in withrepparttar 102101 deal! What has become of my business (and his!) since then is incredible!

We now share a joint venture at YMTC ( I know Mike would agree - it has been a win-win situation. We are now dependent on each other in various ways. There have been business benefits for both of us.

One word of caution: A successful mentoring situation depends almost TOTALLY on honesty and integrity, As a mentor, you must develop a sense of trust between you and your mentoree. You MIGHT be able to do this on false pretenses and selfish motives for a short time. But it will come back to haunt you.

Make SURE you have enough information aboutrepparttar 102104 person who is teaching you to feel totally comfortable with what they are offering. Don't go into something lightly. If they are shooting straight with you, they won't have any problem with you checking out their credentials.
