Recently, I have learned that it can cause some confusion between mentoring and networking. It was found that both mentoring and networking are about sharing, so in reality it is not the same network as mentoring. That was not the answer.
They actually differ from each other. When you network, you will meet people and allow other people to get to know you. You are also networking to get your name out there and represent yourself as an expert in your chosen area. Mentoring, however, is about handing someone and directing them, be it business or personal.
I've allowed you to basically help with networking because people can read your posts, blogs, or articles to learn something. They read what he wrote, and that is the end of it. You may become clients or redirect your business, but that's as far as it goes. Mentoring is actually a step-by-step guide. Mentoring is about some help, no group help. Mentoring is about helping and not expecting monetary gains or anything else but hard work and dedication from mentee.
People have argued that mentoring takes too much time and mentoring is for those whose money is flowing and allowing themselves to spend time on their busy days for a mentor, but that's not true. Many mentors even if they do not have the money. Why is that? Mentoring means that someone has knowledge of the hard knock from school that someone can give them to help them over the roadblocks that they can access through their business. While mentoring may take time, you will build a fearsome referral resource, potential future clients, and make yourself aware that you know that you actually helped someone in your life without doing anything. This is missing in this day and age.
Mentoring can be a tough and time-consuming job, but you understand what you get in friendship and business. However, the ambulance must be ready to save time and learn some mentor ideas. If the ambulance refuses to do so, the mentor really wastes his time.
Several people have experienced me to start a virtual assistant business and I'm happy to provide them with help and guidance, but also have to be prepared to work on it. Too many times I get in touch and give up ideas, then they ask me to ask questions and I always say yes, they return with a few more questions, but they realized that launching a VA business is a lot more work than they expected to leave. Essentially, I'm trying to help you race, but you know it's okay. Do I have commercial secrets? I do not usually help them when they need it. If I do not help them and get stuck, they can become very good at the bad virtual assistants I've been talking about in previous articles and that can cause great damage to the industry. So if I can help someone become a good virtual assistant, then I all understand.
You do not usually have to look at the help. They usually take themselves. After a while, you get a person who is a sucking channel and just stop giving detailed responses, but instead gives web references or instructions to Google for the term or one. But generally, they decide to simply migrate when they are too busy and doing so early enough not to waste your time to answer a lot of things just to lose them. Very few people get to the third or fourth e-mail. Those who do not deserve to work with
Mentoring are also highly profitable. Think about it when you are raising children, I have a major mentor for you. Once your child has raised, raised, loved and cared for, and to go to the world and achieve something, you are not proud or wonderful and you realize that all the trials, anguish and tortures you have suffered have been worth it. This is exactly the kind of feeling you'll get when you save someone and you see that your business achieves the success point and you know that it was in that role.
One of the things that makes me totally crazy is that I've seen people call themselves mentors when they are just coaches because they are waiting for something in return, usually monetary. Therefore, mentoring has lost all the reports. Now, when someone has offered you to be a mentor, you have to think what they mean. Are you a real mentor or coach?
So you remember when someone needs you to listen to them and take them with their hands and guide them, do not act. Help them, but be assured that we are willing to help and do not have the work done with them. Mentoring is another type that says "Pay It Forward". We all have to return to pay in advance and think about others. and not just ours.
