Why A Mentor Is Essential For Your MLM Success

Aug 17, 2007
Working in the MLM industry is tough. You have the potential to achieve the things that you set out to have in life. You see others achieving the things they have set out to achieve and you want the same success for yourself. So how do you get there as quickly as possible?

One thing that you have probably heard before about achieving MLM success is to copy others to duplicate their success. Find successful people, learn what makes them so successful, copy them and then show other people how to achieve the same success.

Now that you know the best road to achieving goals in your MLM business, how do you find someone who is willing to take you under their wing and show you how to be successful? Easy, what you need is a mentor.

What Can A Mentor Do For You?

We have determined that mentors can help you gain success in your MLM business, but they also have a great deal of other qualities to offer you. A good mentor will be able to provide you with guidance and through their experience, will be able to teach you how to handle yourself in tough situations.

As well as being your guiding light, your mentor will have had extensive experience in how the MLM business works. The advice and understanding that a mentor can provide you with will keep your dreams alive and help you stay focused on achieving them.

Most of all, your mentor is your friend and everyone needs a friend to rely on when things get tough and a mentor will be there to celebrate with you through all of your successes as you achieve them.

How To Choose A Mentor For Your MLM Business

Choosing a mentor can be a difficult task at times, but keep in mind that you are looking for a person that you admire, is trustworthy and, above all, you need a person who has a lot of experience and a natural flare for teaching and explaining complicated strategies.

When you find a person that has these qualities, approach them and ask if he or she would mind mentoring you. Some people may decline your offer. But, on the whole, many people have a desire to help others because, in the act of helping others, a mentor is securing his or her own success. Just remember that if you ask a mentor to teach you, make sure that you are determined to succeed and take his or her advice wholeheartedly and take action.

How To Work With Your Mentor

To make a mentor program work, you must be prepared to be flexible and have a lot of give and take. Remember that your mentor is a person too and will have other obligations in their lives that they must also tend to.

Sit down with your mentor and work out a fair schedule that suits both you and your mentor. Even if you arrange to have meetings with your mentor over lunch or dinner or choose to see them in a place that is free of distractions. To keep your schedule running, you will also need to make a plan if you have to cancel a meeting. Discuss the best way how to reschedule.

Your mentor is there to help you as much as he can, but remember that you have to take the first step and help yourself first by making the commitment to spend time with your mentor and listen to what you are being taught.

Take What You Have Learned And Give It Back

As we mentioned earlier, the formula to success in MLM is to copy and duplicate the success of others. This is the only way to be truly successful. When you achieve success as an MLM marketer, remember what it is like to be starting out as a newbie and offer your expertise freely to those who are asking for it.

Being a mentor is not only the way to secure your success and achieve your goals. You will also feel a great sense of achievement. A large part of this is by being able to pass on what was taught to you, by a person you greatly admire, to another person who has the same admiration and respect for you.


The easiest way to achieve success in MLM is to find a person who has mentor qualities and is willing to teach you. Make a commitment to listen and learn what you are being taught and be determined to succeed. Once you have achieved success, remember what a valuable gift that you have been given by your mentor and, if the opportunity arises, make sure to give back what you have learned to someone else who really wants to invest in his or her success.
