How does the Seller Community Mentorship Program work?


The Seller Community Mentorship Program is designed specifically to connect experienced entrepreneurs (mentors) with emerging business owners (mentees). Through this program you will have the opportunity to get one-on-one support and practical advice on how to achieve your business goals, as well as answers to your burning questions. You’ll also have opportunities to connect with other business owners who face similar challenges.


The program will run for six months, during which you will be able to meet one-on-one with your mentor virtually, in person, or through other communication channels. 


[My] mentor has been super at offering suggestions on how to improve my item and menu setups, which is what I needed most.”

What are the perks of participating in the program and having a mentor?


  • Learn from a pro: Get paired with an experienced business owner. Learn from someone who has been through it while getting a better understanding of how to grow your existing business.
  • Get help when you need it most: Talk through difficult situations, learn how to handle the unexpected, and have individual access to someone who knows what you’re going through and is ready to help. 
  • Feel a sense of community: Connect with a network of business owners to share your experiences, to discuss wins and challenges, and to offer suggestions. 
  • Learn from anywhere: You can connect with your mentor one-on-one virtually, in person, or through other channels that you feel comfortable with.
