One BIG Reason You Need a Mentor in Your Business

I was on a Free Strategy Session call this morning and the beautiful being on the other side shared something that I hear all the time…

I built my website. I have a business. I give readings, do Tarot + Reiki. I’m not charging enough though, and I’m not making any money or getting clients consistently.

I thought if I built it, they would come. I thought if I started up my Facebook page or Instagram, they would come.

I don’t know what I’m doing wrong.

I asked her questions to get clarity about exactly what she’s tried in the past and what she’s doing now to be sure that I had a good understanding of her situation.

Finally, I asked her this question:

Do you want a mentor to help you with this?

She paused. I could feel the energy shift.

Then she asked:

Why would I need a mentor?

It’s a reasonable question, right? I mean, why?

I paused.

Then I shared all the things she had shared that she needed in her business:

• Clients

• Clarity on her target audience

• A website

• An email list

• SEO basics

• Facebook Ads to get visible + get Ideal Clients consistently

• An offer she knew how to market!

• A package that her ideal clients love to buy!

• Support with raising her prices

• A way to onboard clients seamlessly!

And so much more…

And so I asked her: Would you like someone to show you how to do all that, quickly?

The thing is, even though she has been in “business” for two years, she is actually still in the infancy stage.

And, until we begin to really invest in our business and treat it seriously, we…

A. Won’t make money

B. Won’t grow as fast as we’d like in all the other possible areas

Trying to grow a business without spending any money on it is like having an infant and expecting it to grow without feeding it!

I suppose my first experiences working with coaches (beyond high school sports) occurred in my Landmark Education training days back in my twenties and early thirties.

I received real-time coaching on all sorts of ways of being. I was called out on my shit, repeatedly, in front of large groups of people.

And one of the biggest learning lessons of this training was this:

We don’t know what we don’t know.

Here’s how this works:

I know what I know.

For example, I know that I know how to tie my shoes.

I know what I don’t know.

For example, I know that I don’t know how to fly a plane.


I don’t know what I don’t know.

And that is the key to growth + transformation.
It’s called: your blindspot.

The answer, in short, to her question, Why do I need a mentor? is this:

You don’t know what you don’t know.

And unless and until you invest in yourself + your business to find out what you don’t know, you won’t know what you don’t know.

That’s like living life blind.

And I know what you’re going to say.

But, Rachel, I don’t have any money.

And I’ll say: It’s not your resources that matter, it’s your resourcefulness. (Thanks, Tony Robbins.)

We all have access to money.

So stop saying that sweetie! It’s killing your dreams.

Find the money.

Figure out the money.

Ask for the money.

Borrow the money.

Charge the money.

It takes money to make money, honey!

If you can’t do this, then you have a hobby, not a business, and you’re walking around half-blind.

At least admit that to yourself! That’s the first step!

Sorry to be so blunt, but it’s only cuz I love ya!
