Why are so many mentors free?

Simple answer

Because they are nice people.

Extended answer

  • They genuinely enjoy helping.
  • They want to share their experiences and help others learn from them. Sharing their experiences, wins and failures can truly change the trajectory of someone else’s path.
  • It keeps them on their toes. No better way to sharpen your skills than to teach someone else!
  • Speaking with up and coming businesses is fun and exciting!
  • Growth Mentors have a growth mindset and are looking to learn in each and every situation- including mentoring sessions.
  • They want to build up reviews. They know they can add value and help people, so why should they be at the bottom of the list?!
  • It looks great on a resume
  • When people Google their name, their GM profile is at the top of the results with (hopefully) glowing reviews.
  • Social proof to show that they know their stuff

But seriously, it just seems to good to be true 🤔

When was the last time you were publicly praised for something? It’s a damn good feeling for a mentor when a review comes in from a mentee saying how great (aka smart) they are.

Ego for sure plays a role in this topic. If you are reading this portion of this FAQ, you’ve taken the time to look into this so I’d suggest scrolling reviews on a few mentor’s profiles and you will then understand why they do it.

We have a channel that pipes in realtime-reviews so all of the feedback is visible to all of the community and mentors- praise in front of your peers is a strong motivator for ambitious folks (which all of our mentors are).
