Share Your Time | How To Start A Mentor Program
This is about Effective Leadership and Legacy.
While listening to a podcast titled The Dangers of Playing It Safe, the guest presented a question that I believe is essential to all T.E.A.C.H.E.R.S. in various capacities of mentorship to others.
- Healers (Ministers and Practitioners)
- Entrepreneurs (who are building a System)
- Relationship Experts
These are people like you, who inspire and instruct others to live life more fully by changing what they think about and choosing the most appropriate things to do with their time.
How do you integrate – what you Love – with having Impact?
I started thinking (and recommend you do this for yourself)…
What I love is about me.
Having impact is about others.
Then I asked my myself , “Who should I invest in – for maximum impact – based on what I love?”
I stopped listening to the podcast to read my VISION…
Framing the Future of Families through Entrepreneurship.
I continued with my PURPOSE…
Helping T.E.A.C.H.E.R.S. Maximize their Passion and Fulfill their Purpose through Entrepreneurship
Next I pondered the five BELIEFS which support my purpose…
- Every person I meet is a genius in some important and useful way.
- My first responsibility is to initiate a conversation with the genius to awaken him or her.
- My second responsibility is to create a training system to help them believe in and develop their genius.
- My third responsibility is to introduce God to help the genius reach his or her maximum potential.
- My fourth responsibility is to establish a community to protect the genius, their vision and the people whom they serve.
Since I’ve always valued work, relationships and a life I greatly enjoy, I’m reminded daily just how important it is for me to share my time mentoring other T.E.A.C.H.E.R.S. Every investment in this group of leaders is a seed that will mature and feed thousands of people.
I have also experienced the usefulness of being mentored by other T.E.A.C.H.E.R.S. This lesson is intended to help my fellow T.E.A.C.H.E.R.S. learn How To Start A Mentor Program and choose the right people to share their time and contribute their expertise.
Step 01 – Know Yourself and What You Want
The guiding question: If you and I were having a fierce conversation, 90 days from today about your impact on the lives of others, what investments in your self would you say contributed to your ability to make this impact?
Step 02 – Frame Your Vision
Begin to look at your work and your life from the highest perspective down to the lowest perspective where the action happens.

Step 03 – Establish Goals That Keep You Accountable To Your Beliefs
For most of us, a ridiculous amount of time (years upon years) has been given to living for other people and chasing what they’ve defined as important. Now is the time to pursue the goals that give you significance while improving the quality of life for others.
Step 04 – Live It: Structure Your Days To Create An Undeniably Attractive Lifestyle and Legacy
Demonstration is the most powerful influencer upon human behavior. People do what people see. Your first level of mentorship to any person is the way you live your own life daily. The best thing you can do daily is be clear about how you’ll use your time.
Step 05 – Capture It: Use The C.O.N.T.R.O.L. Sequence To Deliver The First or Next Version of Your Mentoring Program
Living according to your beliefs allows you to validate the significance of each belief. In this step, you will begin documenting the process for transferring your confidence and expertise to your mentee.
The intent is to present your experience in such a way that your mentee can follow your lead without being limited by your successes and failures.

Step 06 – Offer It: Make People Aware of The Training You’re Offering
Meetup.com is a great tool for meeting people who might qualify for your mentoring program. Be sure to use keywords that your ideal mentee might search for on Google. This will allow people to find you who are already looking for what you’re offering.
