Each month we have been reaching out to notable communications professionals to ask them a few questions about their experiences and interests, with the goal of providing some insights to others in the industry.  For our latest edition of ‘Questions for the PR Industry’ we delved into the world of blogging, speaking with Jeremy Page of Multiple Streams, a blog about multilevel marketing (MLM).

On your blog, you talk about finding the right mentors. What do you believe makes a good mentor in this industry?

Well first off, instead of following dozens of other marketers in the industry, deconstruct your learning from ground zero and find mentors. Find people who are already doing what you want to be doing. My mentors? They’re both living happy, healthy lives in sunny locations, engineered by passive income. They’re people who are already doing what I want to be doing. If you can, find a way to produce for them or help them. This could take months or years, but it’s worth playing the long game.

What was one mistake you’ve made in your career, and what did you learn from it?

Thinking way too small. Most of my 20’s were spent chasing business activities that weren’t impactful or couldn’t be scaled. What changed my mindset? Reading books by Richard Branson, Peter Diamandis, Napoleon Hill, etc. Daily reading has been transformational. So really, my mistake was not making personal development a priority.

What media outlets do you follow on a regular basis and why?

I check my Twitter once a day, and that’s where I’ll get my information. I’m on the low-information diet. I don’t check any news outlets on a daily basis.

What tips do you have for starting and managing a successful blog?

I wrote about that here. Don’t worry about making your blog pretty, designing a logo, or anything like that. Worry about that when it’s doing 50,000 UV/mo. Find a niche, find what content worked for others, and then make your content better than anyone else in your niche. Again, play the long game.

Thanks, Jeremy!
