Why should you mentor with Growthmentor?
Start building your profile with reviews and testimonials from your mentees, and network with other professionals in our exclusive community.
Only have an hour free each week? No worries. You can charge how much you want and set your availability to whenever you want.
It's your choice of who you accept a mentor request from. We can't have extensive experience in everything, all we ask is that you treat the mentee with kindness and respect.
Members often ask us to recommend a freelancer or consultant. We take care of our own, so if you're the best person for the job, we'll point them in your direction. We don't charge referral fees and don’t take commission either.
The most common answer mentors give when asked "what do you love most about GrowthMentor" is the community. Friendships and connections are forged here every single week.
But first, we need to see if you’re a good fit.
We take great pride in who is allowed to mentor on our platform. As a result, we’ve discovered that the best mentors share a few common traits:
- A proven track record of at least 5 years hands-on experience
- Friendly with great interpersonal skills
- An abundance mindset of taking action
- A genuine desire to help their peers.
It’s not 100% about the money – over 80% of our mentors offer their time for free even though they are able to charge.
All of our mentors see this as an opportunity to give back to their community, build karma, and grow their personal brand.
I love mentoring amazing startups to help them avoid the costly mistakes I've made and grow faster.mentor
