Santa Monica’s biggest monthly mentor event continues to grow every month because you make it the best monthly event in Santa Monica or LA for that matter.
This event we are going to give you group mentorship as well as super mentors and industry mentors. Our two group mentors are Dr John Oda, who is a specialist in helping you breaking through your business goals and our second group mentor is John Bates who is the best funding pitch coach I have ever seen. They will both host 30 minute sessions upstairs with Dr John Oda starting at 6.30pm. You cant book these sessions. Just turn up early and you can come for one of both sessions.
In addition we will have 9 super mentors with different areas of specialty to help your business grow and you can schedule these amazing people for 10 minute time periods from 7.30pm to 8.30pm. Their names and links to their profiles are below. All you have to do is click their link and request 10 minutes mentoring at the event by filling out your name, email and a little bit about yourself on the "Apply for Mentorship!" tab. We will let you know prior to the event who has got 10 minutes of uninterupted time on the evening and who has not.
