Apply here: free 1:1 mentorship with John O'Nolan of Ghost

@johnonolan of Ghost is going to mentor an indie hacker for two months. If things go well, he (and other established founders) might do more mentorship cycles like this with other indie hackers.

Level of experience doesn't really matter here. What we're looking for is someone who is goal-oriented and motivated to learn and grow.

👉 You can apply to get mentored here.

Here's how it will work:

  • 8 weeks of 1:1 mentorship with John
  • You'll meet 2–4 times virtually

Feel free to share thoughts/suggestions on mentorship in the comments!

    Is there a specific time range for the mentorship?

    1. 1

      2–4 individual calls with john over 8 total weeks. unclear how long each call will run.

      1. 2

        Oh sorry, I meant if this is immediate (April) or starts at some later date.

  2. 2

    Quick question will there be a reply when you're not selected?

    Thank you

    1. 2

      yes, but you'll probably have to give it a couple weeks

        Hey, just wanted to check in if it's still the plan 🙂

        1. 2

          it is — there were over 100 applicants, and only john and i were reviewing them, so the process is still on going. (this is only a side project for us.)

          1. 1

            glad to hear that 🙂 thanks for an update, Channing!

      2. 1

        Yes that's ok, just wanted to know if we could/should expect feedback in this case.
        Thank you for making this a possibility 💪

    Great validation for mentoring! I’ve considered similar for years with makerviews.com

    Stoked to see how this goes, great opportunity!

    1. 1

      Just out of curiosity, any reason in particular you haven't moved on your idea with makerviews?

      1. 1

        Tbh time, bandwidth, and competing priorities - busy life, full time day job, and other side businesses.
