It's a bit crazy to even think about, but I ran the numbers today and had to get into some pretty old payment accounts – but looks like with this month we are hitting a quarter million dollars that we paid out to our mentors over the past ~2.5 years!
That's the result of 1,700 mentorships, 8,200 registered users and the amazing work of over 500 mentors!
If you would have told me even just a year ago that this would look like that today, I wouldn't have believed you, but things are speeding up and every month we are processing another $30,000 or so.
I guess I should also give an update on what things are going on on the business side right now:
My search for marketing channels had paid off and I am starting to find scalable channels in paid and organic marketing that work great
I've gotten help in customer support. People are happier, because issues are resolved quickly and often in their interest
After two years, I am very, very close to finally leaving PayPal behind. Fingers crossed!
We just signed with another team to provide a few months of hands-on mentorship!
Just shows the value of persistence, like I'm always preaching it! This didn't come over night, not even really over a year. So if you're a bit down or unsure about your idea, keep at it – as long as you believe in it!
