Introducing Mentor101

What is Mentor101?

It’s a mentorship initiative for 101 days offered to 9 people only.

Where?

We’re in 2017 so location is no longer a problem nor a challenge. Thanks to the Internet, we can meet online. You don’t have to move a muscle. Mentor101 will come to you, you go nowhere (physical location). In short, we meet online, period.

Which type of Mentorship?

  • Sharing ideas and life experience.
  • Learning the secret of working less and achieving more.
  • Investing time and never reinventing the wheel by helping others to avoid the mistakes I’ve done in my life.
  • Moving only (1) step ahead every single day to become better than the person you were yesterday.
  • Focusing on the vital few and ignoring the trivial many.

Who can join or apply?

Anyone and everyone. Regardless where are you from, YOU can apply. However, for you to be selected, there are some tests and steps you need to pass and do. Also, there are some requirements you need to meet. Details will be published and explained hopefully soon so please be patient.

Why?

If you wish to change the world, you need to be that change. You need to change yourself first. Mentor101 focuses on the foundation of any community, that’s the individual him/her self. I managed to change myself. It’s time now to pass the experience and knowledge to 9 people. Once those 9 people will successfully pass the mentorship program, they will be ready to pass on the message to others. That’s in my opinion the only way to change the world as we know it.

“You never change things by fighting the existing reality.
To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.” – R. Buckminster Fuller

How?

I shall select only 9 people to mentor them for 101 days. As for how the mentorship program will work and what will happen during that? this is the wrong question at this stage. Rome wasn’t built overnight. Let’s learn to walk first and then run. As for how I shall select those 9 among maybe 900? there are basic requirements:

  1. Intense desire to learn.
  2. Patient.
  3. Respect time.
  4. Honest.
  5. Extremely committed.
  6. Drama is forbidden (High Emotional Intelligence).
  7. Team spirit.
  8. Share his/her knowledge, experience and ideas with everyone without hesitation.
  9. Think and act positively.
  10. Basic English.

If the above basic requirements are achievable, we move on to the next step:

Candidates MUST read about the 80/20 principle and if possible find the 80/20 manager book then read it or follow the author Richard Koch on Twitter.

The third step is: record (1 minute) video and send it to me by email. In this video, candidates are required to convince me why should I select them?

There will be a written test or exam. Passing with a high mark means the candidate is qualified to the last step.

If the candidate managed to pass all the previous 4 steps, the final step will be a 1-2-1 interview with me for 5-10 minutes only. Needless to say, this interview is online (Google Hangout).

After all that, I shall select the top 9 whom I shall mentor.

When?

Most likely, 22nd of August, 2017.

Please note: I shall confirm the exact starting date sometime later. More details will be published hopefully soon!

Questions?

I’ll do my best to answer ALL your questions very soon. However, please be advised that I’ve not yet finished. More details will be published hopefully soon. Please understand I’m doing all this by myself and I’ve a day job and another project to manage, not to mention an ongoing training to nearly 70 people. Oh, and several other daily tasks as well.

 

Thank you!
