INNOVATION IS ALWAYS AN OPTION || THE LIGHTS ON LAB
CONSULTANTS/FEE BASED/DISCOUNTS FOR MEMBERS
A consultant is an individual or company who you hire to do something for you or your business. They have resources, knowledge, or experience that can supplement you in your efforts. They typically don't look to develop your skills or performance, but use theirs to accomplish tasks or reach goals in place of you. You get the work done without having to do it yourself.
ADVISORS/EQUITY+SALARY/12 MONTH TERM
We like to describe an advisor as a sharp-shooter - someone with specific expertise or experience who can help you in a particular way. They might do so for a fee, or as part of a more formal advisory role or group, or as a favor or for in-kind services. The relationship is typically more casual than the other three described here. You ask questions and they have answers. They listen a little and talk a lot, and are able to help an entrepreneur get an urgent problem understood (and maybe solved) quickly.
WEEKLY ONLINE & LOCAL MASTERMIND SESSIONS INCLUDED IN MEMBERSHIP
Get the feedback and guidance you need as you work through you business issues weekly with a collective group of professionals who are invested in your project as well as the outcome.
COACHES/FEE BASED/DISCOUNTS FOR MEMBERS
A coach works with an entrepreneur (their client) to help improve performance. It can be leadership, business, or personal, but in all cases structured to help establish and meet goals, understand and resolve challenges, and focus on growth. The coach neither necessarily has all the answers an entrepreneur might seek nor does the work on behalf of their client, but brings an outside-in and unemotional perspective. Coaches know how to take an entrepreneur through a process of discovery and skill development, asking questions to lead the client to their desired achievements. The benefits of the coaching engagement can be measured through the performance of the entrepreneur and/or the company. The client becomes more capable and the business grows.
MENTORS & ACCOUNTABILTY PARTNERS NO COST/INCLUDED IN MEMBERSHIP
A mentor creates a relationship through which long term benefit is derived from knowing one another deeply. It is often a personal relationship or one that becomes personal because of the time spent together and the mutual caring. Mentors are safe, look to develop their mentees, and have no agenda. They are passing along their knowledge and experience.
