In this new world of Attraction Marketing and Online Marketing, EVERYBODY thinks they are a coach/mentor. People make 1 sale of a $7 ebook on Clickbank and all of a sudden they are calling and marketing themselves a coach/mentor of the year.
The guy whom I consider my first ever coach/mentor was and still is Dale Calvert. I follow him now days through webinars and have many of his trainings. But Dale Calvert taught me a great deal about the MLM industry and being a successful Entrepreneur.
To some Dale can seem a little rough around the edges but the man has a big heart of Gold and truly wants people to succeed and be their best.
Even today when Dale teaches he will start out saying before you let anyone coach or mentor you you need to ask yourself.
Who is this person, why should I listen to them, how much have they made in money, how successful are they and how many other people have they helped become successful who earn an excess of a 6 figure income.
I have been screwed over a few times with these so called mentors prowing around the web.
Anybody can buy a cheap suit off the rack and stand in front of a freaking white chalk board and make a recording.
We've got to really be careful, folk will take your money and leave you hi and dry.
