Episode 8: Calculating ROI When Paying a Mentor

In today’s episode I’m going to get vulnerable and tell you exactly how much I’ve paid certain mentors over the years as I’ve built my professional practice, and exactly how I evaluated whether I received any return on my investment in those mentors.

Plus, I’m sharing an excerpt of a call with my business mentor, Greg Hickman, which inspired exactly the topic of today’s episode.
