Learning from the Experts

If you’ve been reading this you know that Kaid and I are millennial entrepreneurs. As millennials we recognize that we have many resources that generations before us simply didn’t have.

The one we wanted to share about tonight is the access we have to diverse experts. With technology, we can literally connect with people all over the world and this has allowed us to surround ourselves with true experts.

We break them down into 3 categories: advisors, coaches, and mentors. Each plays a unique and important role in our entrepreneurial journey.

Advisors:

Give you advice. Make suggestions. Advise you, but do not tell you what to do. Advisors are common in finance, business, law, etc. They provide guidance on things you’re not an expert in.

Mentors:

Strategic. Help you see big picture. Address the overall storyline and path you’re on. Talk out big goals and dreams with you. Mentor you through issues, concerns, wins, etc.

Coaches:

Walk you through things step-by-step. Review your work, help you tweak and adjust as necessary. More hands on in your actual work. Tactical.

Once we identified these different characters in our business life, we became much more strategic with what we asked of certain people. This allowed the advisors, coaches, and mentors to leverage their skills more clearly and resulted in us receiving better quality support from our community.

In return of this time and attention to find your who’s, you’ll be learning non-stop and definitely cutting your learning curve!

As millennials, we’ve been blessed with the opportunity to look high and low for our experts. You can do the same, by adopting the idea of finding your who’s.

Our mentor RB taught us this strategy and it has already paid out 10 fold. Find your WHO’s. This will save you money and time, while also teaching you what you need to know at record speed!

We use our coaches on a most regular basis, but what about you? Who do you reach out to most for support within your journey?

Advisors, Coaches, or Mentors? Let us know!

We hope you found this helpful, especially if you’re just starting out on your journey as an entrepreneur. The faster you can identify the role of each person in your life, the easier things will be and the more knowledge you’ll be able to learn and execute on.
