Have you ever considered offering paid mentorship to people “like you” from earlier stages in their journey?
I’ve heard this desire come up a few times lately, so I thought I’d ask.
Clearly, I’m one of these people. I’ve spent the last two years doing just that. It’s highly rewarding and worth pursuing, though it does have some nuances.
Some of the factors you’ll need to think about include:
- How to know whether it’s a good idea for you
- How to test the waters without going “all-in” on the idea
- How to package, price, and deliver your offering
- How to offer it publicly without confusing your existing clients
- How to find clients who actually want to pay for it
- How to handle your first few mentorship clients
- The tools and mechanics of delivering a mentorship program
- Whether to do individual or group mentorship
- And a variety of other non-obvious factors to consider
In my eyes, mentoring is a little different from coaching.
It’s typically aimed at people who are a few steps behind you on the journey and want to get similar results to what you’ve accomplished.
Coaching tends to be a little broader in terms of who you help and what you help them do. It’s not always about following a similar journey to yours.
My question to you: If I offered an inexpensive workshop on how to create, sell, and deliver a paid mentorship service, would you be interested in that?
Hit reply land let me know so I can gauge interest and possibly ask you a couple questions to help inform it.
If I get enough interest, I’ll put this together.
