Sunday: Sightseeing day!  Nothing GM related on this day.  We’ll share our suggestions and you can go it solo or you can explore the city with your newly found growth pals you’ve been hanging with since Friday.

Why: With over 50 meetups under our belt, we hear time and time again how much people enjoy meeting other GrowthMentor folks in person.  Besides the obvious plus of expanding your professional networks, people have gotten full time jobs, part time gigs, found new customers and even a few new bestie bonds have been formed at our gatherings!

Get in touch with Jessica in Slack for details 🙂

As VP of Growth at EuroVPS, I had to make a LOT of decisions, daily. This got exhausting, especially if I had multiple good ideas on how to do something, but wasn’t sure which to choose. Moments like these inspired me to build GrowthMentor. Does this resonate? If so, I’d love to try and help you.
