What to Expect from this Mentoring Group
Topics are chosen monthly by consensus, allowing the group decide where to focus their energy.
We'll vote on a topic each month and then you'll receive some questions & thoughts to help you think it through before we meet.
Some candidate topics I suggest are...
Building great relationships with your team
Creating and improving your delivery process
Giving and receiving feedback
Interviews and hiring
Managing your boss
Zero-surprise employee evaluations
Plus, special guest experts answer your questions!
We've got the experts! We regularly have folks come in to talk about hiring / using Virtual Assistants, Finances and Taxes, Sales strategy, and other topics you need to be successful.
When do the groups meet?
We'll decide together. Once the group has a three people we discuss if the time & day works for everyone, and if we find a better time, we'll move it.
This group will begin its meetings Fridays at 8 am Pacific Time, using video conferencing.
How long is each meeting?
Each group meets for 90 minutes twice a month to discuss a topic. We'll rotate through topics each month, but you can ask questions or get help on any topic during any session.
Each one of you will get time to talk and ask questions during the meeting, and I'll answer them (or get you the answer). We'll also help each other, so we all learn together. Yay!
In addition, we'll have together in a closed slack channel just for our group. This low volume channel let's you ask questions and collaborate on answers, and gives you asynchronous access to help between sessions.
I'll also record each meeting, and send out the recording for your reference.
New Groups Start Each Month.
I’m limiting it to 5 people at a time. This keeps the office hours call wide open for going deep into your needs, and covering all the context and background information needed to do effective problem-solving and coaching.
My one-on-one coaching services range from $1,750 to $3,400 per month.
This the most cost-effective way to get the support and help you need at the current price of $650/month. Once you buy, your price will never increase. Prices will go up over time, but once you've subscribed you're locked in.
You can cancel at any time, so you’re in the driver’s seat in terms of cost. I think of this as graduating, so I’ll actually be excited for you if you say you’re ready to cancel. You’ll never get pressure to stay on longer than you’d like.
Need just a little bit of support to get where you want to go? Join for a month or three, graduate when you’re ready.
Need more time or support? Stay a member as long as you like at your original membership price.
The "You gotta be happy!" Guarantee
If you decide this isn't for you, for any reason, I'll immediately give 100% of your money back, no questions asked. I want you to be happy with your decision to take this training. No questions asked.
Current price: $650/mo
Join today and your monthly price will never go up!
What people say about working with me...
I require every new manager that reports to me to sign up for Marcus's newsletter and often discuss it in staff meetings. Leadership with a capital "L" is a real part of the discipline I now bring to the coaching experience with my team.
I continue to work one-on-one with Marcus to this day, and I hope I will always be able to lean on him and dialog about challenges.
He is worth way more than you can ever pay him."
Andrew Coven, Director of Content Acquisition Engineering of Netflix
Oddly, I felt like I would be unable to put this new information and ideas into action, and would, therefore, feel worse about myself than before.
I found the opposite. Working with Marcus has been the best form of support I could ask for. He helps me question bad assumptions, brainstorm better solutions, and he's taught me how to manage people without screwing up.
I like the small group focus. I find that the focused attention helps dig deeper into troubling issues."
Jonathan Wold, CMO of XWP.com
Why am I doing this?
Because you asked me to. Even though I email back every person that emails me with a problem, and I give away free mentoring sessions each December, I still get asked for more. Yet most people can't afford the prices of my one-on-one coaching services, so they are left without the support they need to be successful.
Plus, I noticed that in the group workshops I've held, an amazing thing keeps happening: people love the small-group dynamics, and so do I. So I'm really excited to offer these programs, and know we'll have great conversations.
Why should you trust me?
First, I've been leading developers for 20 years at startups, agencies and enterprises.
Second, I've spent the past three years helping Freelancers, Agency Owners and Software Leaders improve their lives. Through individual coaching, group mentoring with Brennan Dunn's Double Your Freelancing Clients and my writing and YouTube channel, I've helped thousands of people feel more productive and confident in their role.
