“The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires.”
For anyone who spends time on internet marketing forums, or who follows some of the top internet marketing gurus, one common thing that is often brought up is the benefits that come from having a mentor.
A mentor is someone who has already traveled down the path you are walking and who can give you sound advice on how to best deal with obstacles that get in your way. A good mentor acts as a guide that will help you limit your mistakes and open your mind to new avenues and possibilities you wouldn’t have been able to see on your own.
Unfortunately, mentors are not widely available as the only people worthy of being mentors are few and far between. The path to great success in any field is difficult to travel and, as such, only a handful ever make it to the top.
