The Power of a Mentor
Having mentors opened the door for me to move from a clear path toward poverty to the life I get to enjoy today. Your direction is not based on luck, family tradition, the economy or the company – unless you allow it to be. You can choose mentors that will guide you to any success you want if you follow these 5 steps.

Hi this is Dan Miller – and yes you’re listening to the 48 Days Radio show – where each week we take 48 minutes to dive into real life questions about finding your passion, deciding what kind of life you want to live – and then finding or creating work that allows you to show up every day, excited to be able to do something that is meaningful, fulfilling – and profitable. This is where normal, indecision and ambiguity come to die. Welcome to the 48 Days Radio Show.
Thank you for being a listener of this podcast. I love hearing from you and being allowed to think through the questions we all have about finding or creating work that matters, for people who care.
Last week I did the unthinkable–I resigned from my position. How can I make $6,000 in 30 days?
Here’s more info on the Venn Diagram we talked about on this podcast.
The low-hanging fruit (the way for you to make money right away) is personal coaching. Courses, Masterminds, memberships, events, etc. take time, but you can start coaching people one-on-one immediately.
Put together three coaching packages that people can choose from.
Can I be the person who closes the deal? How to be a referral source / affiliate.
I applied for Food for Thought and wasn’t chosen, but I understand why.

48 days Eagles and the podcasts of Dan Miller have inspired me to give up the false security of a life-sucking high-paying sales job to pursue my own small business entrepreneurial dreams.
This is exactly how you look for a mentor and how you work with one.

How To Find a Mentor
Shared by 48 Days Eagle Tanner Brock
- Don’t Seek a Relationship – your mentor isn’t necessarily going to be your best buddy that you hang out with all the time. Expect to learn and grow.
- Ask for Work – ask for guidance and action steps (materials you can absorb, courses you can purchase, conferences you can go to)
- Disappear – move on to take action
- Do the Work – take action and do what they recommend
- Return and Report – return back to the mentor and let them know the results of your action
Listen in to some of my experiences on the power of a mentor (Earl Nightingale, Mark Victor Hansen, Zig Ziglar)
