  • You don’t have to work your way up an organization for 3 years, you’re already there leading it – you’re the ones in the meeting room, not us. You don’t have to “wait” your turn to become a director or exec member.
  • But we’re here. We’ve been in your shoes and will be your mentors.
  • And we have fun.
