1| A Traditional Mentor

1| A Traditional Mentor

A mentor is someone that you can go to, to get advice on personal and professional matters.

They often give you advice based on things that they’ve seen or experienced themselves, but they never give you the answer to the problem that you’re facing. That’s up to you to figure out!

2| A Coach

2| A Coach

Someone who is a coach might feel or act like a career or life coach.

They don’t have to classify themselves as a coach, but their role in your life will be similar. They make you think and work!

You normally lean on coaches to help you:

  • reach a specific goal
  • obtain new skills
  • complete a project.

If needed, they can offer expertise and advice, but everything that they do should tie back to that larger goal that you’re trying to reach.

3| A Sponsor

3| A Sponsor

Sponsors are the perfect blend of a mentor and a coach.

They have the influence and power to help you get to where you’re trying to go, and they actively work to open doors for you as well.

They often serve as an advocate and speak your name in rooms that you’re not yet invited to. This person can also be your own personal cheerleader. Work hard to find a sponsor who is well connected and excellent at networking as well!

4| An Accountability Buddy

Sometimes you just need someone near who’s going through the exact same thing you’re going through. The best type of accountability buddies are those who are your peers!

You can choose buddies who:

  • are currently going through the job search, 
  • work in the industry that you’re interested in
  • attended your university or high school

Or you can go in a completely different direction. The possibilities are endless when it comes to finding friends or accountability buddies.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.


Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
