Don’t go for popular. Go for ‘how you can help someone’ .@Fox im currently 18 and always wanted to be an entreupenur especially in ecommerce and create a brand online, but I see that web design is very popular here on this forum and was wondering if its worth getting into that first? and maybe learn a thing or 2 that can help me later on.
what have you done so far?ah I understand better, ok i'm going to work, can you help me transform 1$ to 2$ please ?
never take things personally (yet I read the 'Toltec agreements!), you are right about everything you said ZCP, thanks for this reminder,@Rim time to grow up and accept some criticism.
EVERYONE, please realize this forum and this community are not about YOU. we are here to help each other. maybe you find no value in @maverick 's remark. what if others DO?
what if 5 years from now, someone comes along, reads down to that spot and realizes they ARE making a bunch of f*cking excuses and need to step it up? what if their life changes?
you don't have to take everything said to heart, use it, listen to it, defend against it. there are nuggets of advice and information that will help you. focus on the positive space!
first lesson ..... make it about providing value for others NOT yourself
Rim,1. Yes I understand that the mentor must want to be for me and that's the whole point of this thread
2. Regarding paying the mentor, does it depend on the type of mentorship you are looking for? In my mind I imagined that having a mentor was free, finally I took several training courses whose authors can be considered as mentors but I associated this much more with coaching, a coach I find it logical to pay him , a mentor too but how to put it, not necessarily, I imagine there are mentors who want to help just because they want to help like they were helped by their mentor at one time. An idea occurs to me, Robert Kiyosaki, had a rich father as a mentor and yet he did not pay it.
Finally, I am not paying attention to your last remark because it does not bring me any help except to make me more discouraged, it is a judgment on your part, an opinion which was expressed without knowing neither my skills, nor what I have already achieved or anything else in my life.
It reminds me of a sentence from Napoleon Hill: free advice is only worth what it is worth, that is to say nothing
Anyway, thank you for taking your time to answer me and help me because I'm sure it was your intention by answering me. I wish you the best, nice day
I've had some great mentors. And I've done the same for many others. Mentors are not helpers. They give advice and guidance. It's NOT a hands-on relationship in my experience. You do the work and they simple add their expertise along the journey. As you do the work, you will follow the learning curve and gain your own expertise.So here, under the recommendations of @Fox whom I thank very much, I open this topic and I take action. Like everyone here, my dearest wish is to be financially free, I read books, followed training, some that I have not finished, but in the end I still do not live on what I earn, so I say to myself: could having a mentor help me?
Spot on! Remember MJs CENTS formula and also the Ikigai principle -
many thanks,solid progress then! proud of you.
your answers and interaction so far are at about 11% of your capability. could i get your best 15% for the next 24 hrs? let's level up and raise our game!
Q: what are your next three specific actions to obtain your goal?
thanks, my 3 skills and well I would say: motivate people, do voice-overs and build blogs

thanks for the podcastWelcome.
Who have you helped this week?
Who will you help next week?
Over the years I've come to the conclusion that business is simple:
Help people. Get paid. Help more people.
Start. Sell. Scale.
It's difficult because we don't keep it simple.
@KushShah9492 already linked to the podcast/chat I always link people to when they're tangled up at the start.
Here it is again:
following thread, good "luck!"many thanks,
1 ° complete the finalization of my article
2 ° finish summarizing 2 chapters of the book that I intend to summarize on youtube
3 ° write a relevant comment on a blog of my theme to increase the authority of my blog
many thanks, you are right, these actions you most likely will help me to have clients in the future but not in the immediate future, moreover, to have clients in the theme of my blog now and well I do not find that realistic because I don't find me competent to sell anything, help share advice yes but something comes up i can't visualize itfollowing thread, good "luck!"
These goals do sound like work, but are these the most direct tasks to get a client/sale? That improvement is the fastest way to get results for your work... and motivation.
Well, something like:yes but which one?
thank you for taking your time to help me, I am taking note of your adviceWell, something like:
- Pick a skill
- Create a (simple) profile around that skill
- Find clients, either on freelance websites, directories (e.g.,Clutch, Capterra), or pitching their websites.
Something like @Lex DeVille shows here
What works for me as a marketing writing is Upwork. I look for:
- Someone who knows what they want
- Can afford it/ have an established business already
- Have their contact information
You can then use that contact data to reach out on email or phone. And because they're looking for people like you, the pitch converts better.
Step one is picking a skill. The best skill to sell value (and not work hours) is probably web design.
Instead you might try asking something like:of course, the exchange of service, why haven't I thought about it, it is with pleasure that I can help you, tell me how I can help you
