challenge into actionIt's a little secret that not many people realize...the power of a mentorship community to help challenge you and spur you into action. When you take consistent action, you will see results...and faster!



"I've never heard of a mentorship community, much less an online one. What is it?"


A great online training and mentorship community will have a library of "how to" videos, live training webinars, daily small group Q & A calls, weekly training calls, specialty guest webinars, JV opportunities just to name a few.


But the real engine that makes it all work takes a combination of leadership and an active thriving membership to constantly challenge you to "check and adjust" adapt and help your online business evolve and improve.


I belong to such a exclusive private mastermind community that includes training, mentorship and even live events to encourage interaction with my peers. Engaging in this way can do wonders for home business entrepreneurs who sometimes have a tendency to hide behind their computers and remain isolated. (You know who you are!)


But my community takes it up another notch and also offers regular ongoing team challenges typically lasting 4-6 weeks. These are fun (optional) challenges open to anyone in our online community...but don't let the fun fool ya!


They're geared toward developing a particular aspect of online business and designed to get you into action, instead of sitting on the sidelines. SCORE!


Recently we had a 6 week "Better Blogger" team challenge. It was designed to help members develop a strong marketing funnel for their blog (website)…the lifeblood of ANY online business.


Well I love a challenge, so I jumped in feet first!


Week 1 focused on writing a strong headline.

Week 2 was about writing an effective "list" post.

Week 3 we learned how to properly write a long form lead capture page.

Week 4 showed us how to repurpose a blog post for use in an email.

Week 5 required us to put together a blog post that facilitated an order transaction.

Week 6 we were challenged to draft a proper thank you page to convert new leads into customers and clients!.


Sound like a lot of work? Not gonna lie…it was!


Not only did we create our own weekly entries, we also participated in rating the other participants, which is a whole different learning experience in itself!

So…why do I love these challenges?


It's not for the competition, it's not for the weekly prizes like T-shirts ^ or free tickets to live training events. I do it because entering these challenges helps me build my online business. It helps me sharpen my skills. It helps me create better quality content. It helps me learn so much!


Best of all, it forces me to take consistent action resulting in a better online experience for my audience.


No matter how motivated you think you are as a home business solopreneur, you simply can't do everything yourself. That's why a supportive online community with high quality training and leadership is so valuable!


If you've never been a part of a mastermind community, don't let the name scare you. They're full of regular people from all walks of life, all ages, all backgrounds. That's the strength.


I'm always introducing people into my community, so here's my challenge to you: Get off the sidelines and check it out for yourself! You want results?


You can start right here.
