Coming up with a way to tell our story in a quick “About Us” blurb was one of the more difficult tasks that we came across when building the MentorThis Service. How do you quickly convey that the entire vision was launched with the goal of changing one person’s life, and everything that has been done since is geared at making that happen?
We sat down and started discussing about what brought us to where we are today and in short order realized that everything we had (Good and Bad) to say could be boiled down into our relationships. We broke down some examples of times we were discouraged by others, times we were encouraged by others, and times we decided to try to go it alone. It didn’t take long to notice how closely linked our current circumstances were tied to who we had investing in us. We had everything to owe to the people that “mentored” us. That initial discussion leads us to the question that has defined the last 12 months of our lives:
This platform is the answer. We have developed a matching algorithm that allows us to link people of similar backgrounds with others further down their walk of life. Each relationship is monitored by a “Relationship Manager” to ensure that both the Mentors and Mentees are getting as much as they can from one another.
