Who are Our Mentors?

Our mentors are people who have decided that they want to find work for themselves, on their own terms, and have gone on to create successful businesses, or to work successfully as well-paid contractors. In this way, they have already done the work and are ready to help you.

They know it can be difficult to know where to start, and that you don’t know what you don’t know — they’ve done the hard yards already and are there to give you a helping hand. One that isn’t just theoretical, either, but practical and genuinely helpful.
