Four MUST Haves When Seeking a Mentor
Reliability – as a mentee or mentor you should make sure that as you seek guidance and assistance in growing your business and career that you have time. Time to commit to your business, time to put forth satisfactory effort in your business, and time to meet regularly. Face-to-face, in person meetings are preferable to many people however with the rise of technology virtual meetings are becoming just as effective. The importance of consistent connection is to ensure accountability and follow through. Time is valuable to all people and how you choose to use your allotted time will be reflected in the success of your business.
Success and experience level – You want your mentor to have reached the success level that you want to have or someone with the experience in the areas that you want to excel in. This may or may not be reflected in the “age” of your mentor. With the changing real estate industry leaning more towards higher technology, you may find that the mentor with the success level you want is someone younger. A younger mentor may be able to assist you in understanding and using digital forms, social media, Google Adwords, website design, etc. Mentorship is not about age but rather about professionalism and business sense.
Appropriate Feedback – you want positive and honest feedback. When choosing a mentor do not choose based upon someone who says what your itching ears want to hear. Its important to receive honest, critical feedback on your business because if you do not then your business will not be challenged to grow. As a mentee you need to be able to take constructive criticism well from your mentor and put into action efforts to improve areas of weakness. If you don’t receive this kind of motivation your business will remain complacent – therefore, be challenged!
Diversity – in your sphere of mentorship influencers. While you want common ground and common connections in your mentorship pool you also want diversity. Diversity in neighborhoods, niches, specialties, marketing campaigns, style, etc. This will allow your business to expand to a more diverse audience or even allow you the opportunity to create your own unique sphere of influence.
