Measuring the success of such a program can be difficult, given that we do not know how people would have done on the market without this support (or how they did on the market compared to a comparable group who did not use the program). But the testimonials from the participants do make it clear that they generally felt they had additional support in what is truly a difficult time and task. That in itself makes the program worthwhile. Bravo to the mentors and organizers.

Thanks for the kind words, Brad. :)


I should stress that getting personalized attention on my dossier was incredibly helpful. Even with all the guides and the rest, nothing beat getting feedback from people who had been through the process. Thanks so much Seth and Marcus for doing that and for setting that up!


I had someone ask me when mentors sign up for next season...

Amanda: we should be announcing the signup start-date soon!
