I've had 10+ great mentorship arrangements from MentorCruise and I've been taking advisory calls on Clarity.fm for nearly 10 years. I've advised over 500 entrepreneurs and founders and have 300+ 5-Star Reviews there.

Here's how a mentorship arrangement goes with me on MentorCruise.

1 -- You submit an application for monthly mentoring
2 -- We chat briefly to confirm that my expertise is a fit for your needs
3 -- We both accept the agreement
4 -- The 7-day free trial begins
5 -- You get 2 Zoom calls per month with me (roughly 30 minutes each) and you can email me periodically for quick questions and follow-ups.
6 -- If not a fit, just cancel in the trial or at any time.

Simple as that.

Specifically, as it relates to my experience:

I co-founded Amplify, Startup Accelerator (3 funds, $25MM raised, 8 exits for more than $100MM), and Velocify (formerly Leads360) sold for $128MM. Raised $35MM+ in venture capital. And I've had a startup fail miserably. I've angel invested in a dozen companies. I've seen over 3000 startups apply to Amplify and been pitched by hundreds of entrepreneurs. And have raised more than $50MM in aggregate seed and Angel funding for our portfolio companies.

I live and breathe startups and have a lot of experience helping and advising them. Talk to me about accelerators, incubators and raising seed capital. I've started 6 companies (1 failed, 3 sold, 1 killing it, and 1 in hustle mode).

I angel invest personally and have raised venture capital, built a SaaS company from 0 to 100 employees and I'm also a father of 12-year-old twins -- so I've got some parenting skills to boot.

I also developed an entrepreneurship course from scratch and have been teaching high school students for 5 years. And I have a new online course on customer development launching in 2021.

Almost certainly I've experienced what you're going through at one time or another. And if I haven't, I'll tell you and won't waste your time. Start with a 10-minute introductory call and let's see how we vibe.
