Does Your Business Need A Tour Guide?

The British are coming!

We learned the truth about Paul Revere’s great ride during our trip to Boston last week. Turns out he didn’t ride through the streets yelling about the British. Instead he went from house to house spreading the word so they didn’t alert the loyalists.

One of our adventures was a tour of the Freedom Trail. (Here’s a picture of our adorable guide dressed up in period clothes.)

While we could have walked it on our own and read the guidebook, it was much nicer to have a guide. She made it interesting and relevant. She also highlighted things that we would have missed otherwise. Or we would not have realized how important they were.

Did you know James Otis was one of the first people involved with the revolution even though John Hancock and Sam Adams are more talked about? James had the ideas, John financed it and Sam rallied the troops. 

It’s a lot like your business. You can read books all you want. They will help, but it’s easy to miss nuances that make all of the difference. It’s like putting together IKEA furniture with only 1/2 of the directions.

The other draw back is that no one is there to answer your questions which can stall your progress.

Getting a coach or mentor is like having a tour guide for your business.

They give you the inside scoop that you would other wise miss, and highlight the stuff that works so that you don’t get distracted.

Talk to any successful person and they will tell you that having mentors made a huge difference.

With that, the fall session of the Mindset ~ Marketing ~ Sales mentorship group is officially open for registration. Click here for dates and details about what we will be covering.

Many of you have asked about upcoming sessions. This will be the last one for 2015, so if you have been thinking about it, now is the time.

Here’s the link to get you going.

To your success!
