Welcome to your new Mentor Program
It’s that simple!
You’ll discuss your needs and goals with your potential Marketing Mentor and determine if they will be a good match for you based upon any criteria you so choose. If they are not someone you want to work with, you will be set up with a different Mentor, no questions asked except to place you with a better fit!
You will be guided along your 6 month journey with tools, the rest of the Marketing community as support, and by your facilitator, Jennifer.
Pro Tip: Choose a mentor who is doing what you think you’d like to be doing in the future.
