I’m going to be telling this story for a long, long time.

I raised my paddle at a charity event a while ago, and bam, there I was at another amazing experience in Las Vegas. Dinner, spa, golf, and the “Donny and Marie” show. It was going to be a magical weekend.

And it was, but there was a bit of a hiccup that ended in an important lesson for your business, which I share in the 2-minute video.

But just to set the stage a little bit first…

So we arrive to play golf, and not being people who play regularly, we weren’t up on the culture. We walked in and they said, “We can’t take you in jeans, and you need a collared shirt.” We were wearing jeans and a t-shirt.

So there we were, it was our tee time, we had donated thousands of dollars at the charity event to get this prize; we had flown to Las Vegas, and they were pretty much ready to let us walk away….

Look-for-in-MentorThere is no question that, without my mentors, I would not be where I am today, operating a home-based business that has done more than $30 million in sales, while helping people around the world. I feel truly blessed.

You have to have people in your life who can see your blind spots…AND who can see your greatness and lead you to more.

This may surprise you, but every time the perfect mentor showed up in my life, the timing was inconvenient and the investment was not comfortable, to say the least.

And that’s why I quickly learned not to use “comfort” or “convenience” as indicators of whether to take action.

So what criteria DID I use when looking for the right mentor for me? Here are five of the questions that I asked myself. I suggest that you consider doing the same or tweak the questions to fit what’s important to you.

     

  1. Do they have a specific and proven business strategy?
    You have a vision, right? Even if it’s not clearly defined yet, you want to know what your mentor’s structure is for helping you make it real. What training, tools, and systems do they use themselves and offer to you so that you can enjoy getting results too?
  2.  

  3. Do you trust them?
    Do you believe what they say? I have registered for programs with people where I wanted what they had, but I figured out that I didn’t trust them, so I couldn’t take their advice. Now, that’s not the same question as whether they trigger you. If that’s happening, you want to check in and see if that might be an area for growth. But if you feel that their agenda for themselves is bigger than their agenda for you, consider going the other way.
  4.  

  5. Do they support you in being guided by your own trusted source?
    Sometimes the mentor needs to have the answers, but sometimes you need to look within. A good mentor knows when to tell you to look inside yourself and even offers some suggestions and exercises to help you connect with your own inner knowing.
  6.  

  7. Do they inspire you?
    Is their vision big? Are they blazing the trail that you want to follow? Do you think bigger when you hear their words and see their action? Every mentor that I’ve made great progress under I have found hugely inspirational.
  8.  

  9. Are they still relevant?
    This is the biggie. Are they still in the trenches doing what they’re teaching? Are they using their own strategies to get big results themselves? How many mentors do you see out there talking about speaking but they haven’t been on a stage for 20 years? Whatever you want to learn, make sure the mentor you’re considering is still in the game and on the court versus sitting in the stands shouting out plays.

Bonus Tip
After you’ve chosen your mentor, commit 100%. Don’t keep looking around, second-guessing your choice, asking all of your friends if you did the right thing. Stay focused, master the strategies your mentor is known for, and let their proven systems work their magic for you!

As entrepreneurs, we’re always looking toward what we’re going to create, and rarely, if ever, do we pause to acknowledge what we have achieved.

Share your Wins for More Positivity and ProductivityWhile it is important to keep our eyes trained forward most of the time, if we never recognize how far we’ve come as entrepreneurs, we can get discouraged.

It’s a bit like sailing on the ocean, where the horizon keeps moving, so you never feel as though you get anywhere.

That’s why, at the beginning of our monthly Sassy Mastermind group calls, we do a practice that I call “sharing your wins.”

We take the time to tell each other the major things that we have accomplished in our businesses since we last came together.

Sharing your wins is also a powerful way to start in-house meetings with your team or any group calls that you’re leading.

Here are three other reasons why:

1. It starts the call or meeting on a positive and energizing note.
When team or group members are encouraged to share what they’ve accomplished and are acknowledged for their wins, they tend to leave any negativity outside the door. Sharing your wins gets everyone moving in the same positive and productive direction.

2. It inspires others and expands what’s possible.
Far from being boastful or selfish, talking about your win is a giving gesture, because a lot of times your win is something that someone else did as well and overlooked. So when they hear it, it causes them to pause and acknowledge ground that they, too, have taken. Also, other people who are listening get inspired by what’s possible and get ideas for more wins of their own.

3. Helps us understand how we can learn from and help one another.
When individuals in a group share their wins, the other members now know who to access for help and support. For instance, if Jennifer spoke on a big stage for chiropractors, the others now know that she’s a contact to learn how they might do it as well.

If you’d like to feel the empowerment of taking ground while being surrounded by a community that loves acknowledging it, I encourage you to speak to one of our Best Next Move specialists to see if our Sassy Mastermind might be your next best move. Schedule your free call now.

powerful-positioningWhen it comes to presentations, be they in front of live audiences or virtually via powerful tools like teleseminars or webinars, people often worry the most about the last 15 minutes, when it’s time to make an Irresistible Offer or invitation to work with you or come in for a consult. But if you ignore the beginning of your presentation, your audience might never even hear the end …so maybe it’s best we focus on that for a moment.

The key to keeping your audience on the line or in the room is to create a strong first impression by employing what I call “positioning” in the first 15 minutes or so of your live group presentation, preview call or webinar.

Positioning means that you put yourself and your work in the most advantageous view, and you want to do that in the following 5 areas.

Here are those 5 P’s for Powerful Positioning:
 

  1. Position yourself.
    Right off the bat, you want to position yourself for credibility. You want your audience to see you as someone who is well worth their time. For instance, in my teleseminar preview calls, I might talk about the $25 million in sales we’ve done in the past five years, and the thousands of clients whose lives we’ve transformed in 134 countries. If you’re just getting started in a new field, you can share your accomplishments in other work or borrow credibility from the category you’re in. For instance, if you’re a new life coach, you can talk about the difference that having a coach has made for well-known people that your ideal clients admire.
  2. Equally important is to position yourself for vulnerability, so that people not only respect you, but connect with you too, and see you as someone who can help them personally. To position for vulnerability, share what got you to where you are. If you don’t have a dramatic story of hardship, you can still share about the drive, pain, or angst of knowing there was something more for you to do.

  1. Position your audience.
    You want your audience to know that they’re in the right place. You can do this simply by tapping into their pain, making sure to use their own words, so that they feel understood. For instance, if you’re in the nutrition or fitness areas, you might say, “This is for you if you’re tired of yo-yo diets, where you lose a lot of weight, only to gain it all back again.”
  2.  

  3. Position your topic.
    Position your topic by showing the transformation that’s possible from doing your work. For instance, during preview calls for my 6-Figure Teleseminar and Webinar Sales System, I position the topic by saying, “Teleseminars and webinars enable you to create personal freedom and have a life that you will love. You can touch people all over the world, make the difference you were meant to make, and make great money doing it.”
  4.  

  5. Position your talk.
    Positioning your talk is similar to that essay format you might have learned in school, where you outline the main points that you’re going to cover. When you position your talk, I recommend covering four points: the first describes what you’re talking about, the second states why it matters, the third point teaches them something they can use right away, and the fourth point is the transition to your offer.
  6.  

  7. Position your offer.

The goal of the fifth P is to create trust with your audience. In fact, I call it creating “partnership from the start.” You do this by letting them know that you’re going to teach them as much as you can in the time that you have, and you truly are. But you do have a limited amount of time together, so you promise that, before you conclude, you’re going show them how they can get more. That way, when you make your offer, they’re ready for it. They won’t feel as though it came out of nowhere. And you’ll also feel good, knowing that you’re keeping a promise to show them how to take your work deeper.

I know…I’ve given you a lot, but still have only scratched the surface about how you can position yourself powerfully and craft a profitable preview call.
