Talk to D2C Mentors

Talk to mentors from these amazing companies

Jim Kingsbury

Growth Marketing Leadership
D2C is a close cousin of e-commerce but what really sets it apart is the importance of the products that are created and what those mean for developing authentic and enduring relationships with customers. How & where customers discover D2C brands and products is the next big piece of the puzzle and where a host of really interesting strategic questions emerge.

Filter mentors by:

  • Companies they’ve worked at: Pick the brains of mentors who have seen the inner workings of the world’s leading companies
  • Tools & technology: Get advice on which tools or tech you should be using or get support in unlocking their full value

Using the tools you already use. Mentors can select between either Sype, Google Meet, or Zoom.

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 are new to the platform. New mentors are asked to do some free sessions, in the beginning, to get their feet wet and get a feel for the platform. Only after mentors have 3 reviews can they set a price and charge.

Here are some tips.

  • Come into this with realistic expectations. They’re mentors, not magicians.
  • Ask your mentor if they’d be ok with you recording your screen with Loom
  • Give contextual information to help paint the picture of your current situation.
  • Growth mentors will be asking you lots of questions, answer them as openly as possible.
  • Don’t be afraid to push the boundaries of question-asking. Be inquisitive. Stories are gold.
  • Don’t feel pressure, just relax.
  • Try to form mental patterns, especially if you speak with multiple mentors.
  • Embrace alternative views. Ask the mentors to challenge your assumptions.
  • Be friendly. If you’re likable, the mentors will be your biggest supporters (even after the call is over).

Full disclaimer- there are no silver bullets for Growth, so we can’t make any false promises.

If you have a growth mindset and are looking to connect with various experienced individuals and learn from them, you will get value from GrowthMentor.

All mentors are 100% legit. They’re not here to pitch or sell you anything – they’re here to help people like you who are trying to better themselves.
