Are there special qualifications for being a mentor to online business entrepreneurs? Do you have them? You must decide for yourself.
I have encountered many people who declare they are the best business mentor because they have made a lot of money online. Yet, it is obvious from their actions that they lack character. Many are more adept at taking your money than in teaching you how you can become an ethical success.
The qualifications for a being a good mentor to an online business entrepreneur start with having your own mission and vision for excellence in business, whether you are in internet marketing or a home-based business. You demonstrate those in your behavior every day.
You care that everyone in business, including online entrepreneurs and home business owners, respond to the expectations of clients, consumers and the general public, that honesty and integrity are integral to a successful business.
You are a standard-bearer for the idea that businesses owe a debt of gratitude, because being a success is a privilege. So you share a commitment with other online business entrepreneurs to promote professionalism in all aspects of online business.
You do not give in to failure and encourage others through your own example. You recognize that it is through the failures that you learn and become more confident in yourself and your ability to get back up when intractable setbacks occur, sometimes one after another.
Finally, you realize that you do not have all of the answers and that continued education in your industry is the best way to grow. You are passionate about personal development as a means to help yourself and other online business entrepreneurs remain successful.
