Have you ever considered getting a business mentor? What if you could discuss your business challenges and opportunities with someone who brings a fresh perspective to the table?
Whether you are a seasoned business owner or just starting out, working with a mentor can bring clarity, confidence and direction into your decision making and strategy.
Seasoned business owner
(3+ years in business)
Whether it’s pivoting your offers, launching new ones or scaling up, running a business isn’t always easy. Hiring a mentor could mean fast tracking your decision process and having an experienced ‘sounding board’ when you need it the most.
Early stage business owner
(less than 3 years in business or just starting out)
If you are someone with an idea but don’t quite know where to start, a mentor could guide you step by step towards launching your business. Equally, if you are in the early stages of business building and could use some support, please get in touch.
(business building alongside your 9-5 gig)
I started my business when I still had my full time job in media. If you are someone who is keen to explore a new revenue making idea and build a business without giving up the security of a steady paycheck, please get in touch.
(the digital innovator and agile enthusiast)
Would you like to foster innovation, creative thinking and curiosity amongst your teams? Are you interested in becoming more entrepreneurial in your leadership? Working with a mentor who has led innovation teams and managed digital transformations could very well be the support you need.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What does a mentor do?
A good mentor is also a good listener, enthusiastic about their chosen field and interests, a lifelong learner and someone who can provide relevant feedback.
The reason you’d engage a mentor is to learn from someone who you can relate to, who has done what you aspire to and who could serve as your sounding board along your personal, business and professional path.
A good mentor makes it easier to know what’s right or wrong by asking probing and often uncomfortable questions all in the name of growth and progress. Often it’s over a prolonged period of time (usually 12+ months) that you truly realise the impact of a mentor on your personal, professional and business growth.
What kind of a mentor are you?
My expertise stems across:
+ tech startups (mainly SaaS)
+ online based businesses (e-commerce, service based businesses and courses)
+ logistics and operations
+ innovations and digital
+ project and change management
+ design thinking
+ human centered design
+ growth hacking
+ content marketing and advertising
I am deeply invested in my mentoring relationships and customise my mentoring packages based on requirements.
How do you work with your clients?
As a rule of thumb, I usually provide the following 2 options that we could build on:
1. An effective mentoring relationships is longer than 3 months (usually 12+ months) and as such, my requirement is a minimum 3 month commitment with 1x 60 minute session each week.
Modifications to this arrangement include 1 session of 2 hrs every 2 weeks or 2hr sessions each week.
2. A considerable discount applies to those who choose a 6 month commitment with 2 hrs each week. This is a good option if you are working on a particular project, launch or scaling your business and require a more ‘hi-touch’ engagement.
As mentioned previously, customised packages are available however the minimum requirements of 3 months apply.

How much does it cost to work with you?
Therefore pricing will be provided based on the evaluation of mentoring requirements.
However if you are a side hustler or someone who is just starting out (early stage businesses with little complexity), my hourly rate starts at AUD150.
Do you offer personal mentoring?
I am a daily meditator, mindfulness advocate and lately started deep diving into stoicism as a way of life. I am passionate about guiding individuals on their journeys of personal transformation and growth.
I am also a regular volunteer with Lifeline and in addition to my volunteering hours, I also offer 3 free mentoring sessions each month to people who need it the most. Please feel free to ask me about these.
