Leo - Thanks for reminding me that choosing your guru, or making any choices for that matter, is a personal thing.

Raymond - Thanks for sharing your wisdom not only on choosing your guru but also in making any decision we as entrepreneurs have to make :) That's something we should always bear in mind.

Hope this sharing will be also be useful to others as it has been for me.

Why just one? Why not learn from everybody who has something of value to offer?

I remember when I first got started with Fernando, we were being trained by our MLM system. And we learned a LOT - in terms of personal development, mentality, etc. But they had nothing to offer in terms of doing business online so we had to look elsewhere (while still learning the personal development, mentality, etc. stuff).

We found Mike Dillard who was of GREAT help - we soaked up everything he's got. But we didn't stop there. We wanted to get into the nitty gritty of things on topics such as SEO, video marketing, pay per click, etc. So we branched out from there to fill in the gaps, to get even more "specialized".

An analogy would be Mike was our family doctor, and the others were like specialists (actually some of the others were also family doctors but from a different study).

The point is, each had something good to offer. And I'd be hard pressed if you found them all teaching on the same topic but straight out contradicting each other - and if they did, it's up for you to decide since it's probably working for them. For example, a mentor may say do blackhat stuff while another would say don't.

Up to you to decipher what are the pros and cons of each. A person can't know everything, so don't rely on just one person to fill in ALL the gaps for you.

Hope that helps.

Raymond
P.S. That's not to say get paralyzed by all the different guru's content, but it is to say don't be afraid to make the "wrong decision" and don't be afraid to make MULTIPLE decisions.

Jose, choosing a mentor is a personal thing. There are free ones and ones for hire. Regardless of which way you go one that is computable with your personality. Of course they must have a plan of action that suits your style.

LIVE YOUR DREAMS...as you do help others find theirs.

Thanks so much Shelly, Carl, Catherine and Cindy for your great contributions. Hope this thread helps many of us beginners in choosing our internet network marketing guru out of the many choices out there :)

But can a person really choose the right one for him if he doesn't know his self well? :)

Hi Jose,
I was actually thinking about this very question today. I remember 10 years ago I was working for a PR consulting firm in San Francisco, and it was the dot.com boom. There was a lot of hot air blowing around and everyone claiming they would build success on shaky foundations. It seems that the same thing is happening 10 years later with web 2.0.
Personally, I spent a couple of months just surfing around the Internet to scope things out before I made any decisions. I was looking for both "gurus" as well as mentors who were building their businesses online. Any good "guru" will offer free information before requiring you to sign up for their program, so you can test drive them and learn at the same time. I did that with a few people and found two I thought offered the kind of training that would be best for me. I actually wrote an article about this very subject on my blog, so feel free to visit http://coachingforsuccess.squarespace.c ... et-market/
I hope this helps and wish you well,
Cindy

Hi Jose;

For me, it is a challenge that is not yet over. I have had some initial conversation with a few folks that are offering some kind helping insights to particular challenges, but I haven't come to a point where I could claim any of them to be my mentor. I have not inquired about mentoring, nor have there been any offers of such.

So I am just following my nudges at this time, opening the doors as I encounter them and feeling my way through the information as I have time to give to it.

Its a good question, and I hope that there is more response than what I see as of this time.

Sincerely
Ki/Carl

Hi Jose,

I am assuming, and I could be wrong, that 'internet network marketing guru' stands for someone who teaches/uses 'attraction marketing'.

When I joined BN a month or so ago, I knew nothing about attraction marketing, except for the fact I had read 'Magnetic Sponsoring' and 'The Renegade Network Marketer'.

So I hung out in the background for a bit and read forum posts.

I was 'attracted' to a few people and got on their mailing lists, and of course, I continued to follow them and the information they provided.

Not a lot of science for me, I just went with who/what felt right! (LOL...that's how I know 'attraction marketing' is a good thing!)

So far, so good!

Friends,
Shelly

You may be quite satisfied with your current sponsor but some of them may not be internet marketing savvy. So, the next best thing perhaps is to get yourself a third-party internet network marketing guru.

Can you please share with us how to choose the right internet network marketing guru for you?

Thanks for sharing.

Jose
