A Mentor

What if someone showed you how?

A Mentor has been where you are.

When knowledge is shared we have a better opportunity ahead of us. We don’t feel as if we are entirely alone. There’s someone else who has been through what you’re going through. When you’re inspired you’re motivated, and that’s when you contribute your value and service.

I started using WordPress in 2006. No one knows how to use software before they use it. The whole Web experience requires us to gain new skills. The Web only gained popularity in 1990, thirty years ago. Technology moves faster than human nature. We have to slow down in order to catch up with technology.

Slowing down means understanding the basics with a foundational knowledge. When you know the basics no one can take advantage of you. The tasks on the Web, and inside your Website, are mainly repetitive. Once you have learned them, they become second nature. But you have to take the time to learn. The new features introduced recently to the Divi Theme make it easier for you to use on on the front end. In fact, the new feature eliminates the need for styling and code. 

There must be a charge but the fee doesn’t have to be too high that you cannot afford to pay someone for their time. We have developed a society that wants everything free. We’re in the business of free selling. If it’s free we’ll take it. Unfortunately free doesn’t deliver. When we value our time, and other people’s time, enough for a fair exchange, we contribute something of ourselves and share this with others.

We live in a different time. Most of what we learn we now have to unlearn. This doesn’t make sense at first, but it is true. Life has changed. The Web is here to stay. We love it. We use it every day. But how and what and why is an enigma. Depending on whose sales pitch you listen to you’ll get different results.

speakThe time to listen is when there is no sales pitch.

I chose to be a Mentor to those who need help with their presence on the Web. My passion is helping people because there were people who helped me along the way as I learned. They were Mentors too. I follow their example.

How many website tips have you read to be successful?

Too many, and you’re still trying to figure out all the tips you’ve received. Have any of the success tips helped? It’s easy to read a list of things to do to be successful. Real success is obtained when someone with experience shows you how to create your website.

pracThere are so many experts who claim guaranteed success. Hundreds of people have made it, you can too. Everyone has the potential to succeed, but the journey to success is very different from the “easy to do,” or “save time and money.” A real expert will tell you nothing is easy. There will always be another list of website tips for success for the perfect outcome. 

Your success starts when you have a mentor, someone to show you how they did it so you can also do it.
