Why should you mentor with Growthmentor?

Build your personal brand

Start building your profile with reviews and testimonials from your mentees, and network with other professionals in our exclusive community.

Set your own hours and rates

Only have an hour free each week? No worries. You can charge how much you want and set your availability to whenever you want.

You're in control

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.

Get project referrals

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.

Professional networking

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.

Become a Mentor

What our mentors say

"Mentoring on GrowthMentor helps me be social & gain energy as someone who is high in sociability & works remote. Speaking out lout to a real person that needs my help is invaluable to me."
Dani Hart
Former VP Growth
"I learn a lot from the people I mentor, and I learn a lot from the other mentors in the community. I've gained new friends, new ideas, and learn something new in every single session I do."
Silvana Ordoñez
Program Manager Meta Logo
"I really enjoy being able to help other people through the problems they are going through – especially when my guidance helps them simplify it and gives them a way to execute and move forward. I think it is also a great way to test your skills and improve your communication and teaching style. Whether it is a mentee or a client, people learn differently and finding those different ways to communicate is key."
Enrique Hoyos
Head of Growth
Agata Krzysztofik
"I have met incredibly smart and inspiring people, many of who have become my friends for life. I learn something every day from both mentors and mentees."
Agata Krzysztofik
VP of Growth
“It's a great ego boost to remember how much shit you actually know. It's so easy to get insulated as you learn and grow on your journey. Helping others out gives you great perspective as you can see the 1.0 version of you in them. You then get to give the advice you wish you had so warms the cockles of ones heart.”
Mark Patchett
Former VP of Growth
“I really enjoy helping others, giving back, and teaching my experience and knowledge while also learning myself from mentees and meeting incredibly talented and entrepreneurs, many of whom are much smarter than I am.”
Erik Bullen

Not a lot.  If you are looking to make a quick buck or use this as a lead magnet, you should look elsewhere.

The mentors that do charge for their time mainly do that to qualify that mentees are indeed serious.

We have a mentor only Slack group which is pretty poppin’ with growth talk, banter and Q&As.

As a mentor you have ability to use the platform to book calls with other mentors and step into the mentee side of things.

GrowthMentor HQ does everything in our power to promote the mentors and build-up their personal brands.

Oh yea, we’ll also fly you out to Greece (on our dime) and set you up in a swanky hotel for 3 nights once you hit 100 reviews aka “Midas” rank.

That is totally up to you!  You set your own availability and can change it whenever you’d like.  You can have 30 min a week open or your entire week!
