This week on Ask Rob & Rob, Chris asked:
What’s the best way to find a property mentor?
The answer touched upon trying the informal approach. It discussed going to fun, relaxed events – like The Property Hub Meetups – and finding people who are at a slightly higher level than you are. Building a relationship with said people is important, but it’s also true that most people in property – as long as they’re not trying to sell to you – are really helpful and friendly, and want to share the knowledge that they have developed.
In terms of advice for complete newcomers, there’s so much free information out there that you’re better off finding it yourself. The Property Podcast has many, many hours of free resources for you to absorb. There may come a point where there’s a specific area that you need to know more about, and that’s the point where it may be worth seeking out an expert and paying them for their time. It’s possible to seek paid advice too late, but more often than not, people seek it too early.
The main criteria to look for when seeking a mentor, is someone who’s doing it for themselves. If someone is a full-time property coach, you have to ask yourself: why are they not investing themselves? There are people that will pitch you their mentorship services – avoid them. If a mentor is good, the general rule is that you’ll seek them out. A good mentor will generally not have time to be pitching to new clients.
