Chances are you have done a search online for a review on Mentorbox by Tai Lopez and his partner Alex Mehr. Here I’m going to tell you more about it and whether or not you should consider buying it.
What is Mentorbox?
Mentorbox is a subscription service that helps you consume knowledge from books just the way CEOs do.
Many top CEOs in different industries will admit to the fact that they read a bunch of books every week. Along with Tai Lopez, they speed read as opposed to reading the entire book. This is because they have developed the ability through skimming to pick out only the important lessons from the book.
Tai Lopez along with other CEOs agree that it is much better to get one or two important lessons from each book gaining 365 valuable lessons a year compared to reading just 20 books and getting only 20 lessons for the year.
With the Mentorbox program you get a guide along with worksheets and videos to show you how to extract the important lessons from a book in just one to 1 ½ hours.
This strategy will allow you to absorb the content of 50 to 60 books a year rather than just a few books a year that most entrepreneurs do.
To ask the question, will gaining more knowledge in a broad array of subjects allow you to make more money like Tai Lopez or an average CEO?
The short answer is a resounding no.
You see, filling your brain with knowledge is good, but this is only going to work if you already have seen some kind of success and a clear direction of where you want to go.
Mentorbox is not going to help you to discover a new business to go into or point you in that direction. It may, but that’s not the point.
Many people get caught up in the whole personal development thing, where they believe more knowledge = more power which equals more money.
If you don’t have the skill to make high income already, then reading books is not going to help. However, if you have that skill, have seen some success, then this additional knowledge through books can help you skyrocket that income.
So if you still think Mentorbox is for you, let me tell you the costs involved and what you get.

How do you Stay motivated and Make Sure Your Mentorbox Doesn’t Just Sit in the Closet?
Look, personal development is something that everyone needs but the thing to ask yourself, is this the right time? I remember when I started my online business way back in the early 2000’s, I wasn’t searching for any personal development stuff, just looking HOW to make money online.
Once I discovered a few different methods that started working for me, only then did I look into self improvement and gaining more knowledge.
I literally tripled my income the following year when I implemented the change from the books and material that I read. If I knew how to skim and retain only the important information like Mentorbox teaches, then I would have progressed further.
If you are at a stage where you currently have a job and want to make a side income, then don’t bother with Mentorbox, seriously. Unless you want to learn how to speed read and maintain information, then sure. But, if you are looking to buy this product to make you money – it won’t. You need to be actively involved in some kind of business where this new found knowledge will help you move forward quicker.

So I hope that helps with your decision whether Mentorbox is for you or not.
