About This Show
What do Oprah, Steve Jobs and Colonel Sanders have in common? They had no experience and no business starting the companies that they did, and despite everyone saying that they would fail, they did it anyway.
The Mentors podcast debunks the myth that you need to have experience to start a business by interviewing successful entrepreneurs who have started their ventures against all odds. Co-hosts and twin brothers, Sergei and Vadim Revzin use their experience mentoring hundreds of aspiring young entrepreneurs to bring you exciting, information packed interviews that break down the steps founders take to get their ventures off the ground in the critical early days.

How to Land Major Distributors Like Whole Foods by Hustling Door to Door, with Adam Jones of Peloton
5 days ago
Adam was starting to photograph celebrities for major magazines, when he decided to quit his job and move back home to Pennsylvania to start a cold brew coffee business with his brother. It wasn't hard for him to figure out where to start. Over the years as a photographer he got to know almost every small retailer in his home town. Instead of sending out emails to see if any business owners were interested in the new cold brew coffee he was developing, he quickly put together some samples with his brother and hit the road.
That day he visited 30 stores. Out of those, 26 agreed to put his product on their shelves. Stories like this are typical of many entrepreneurs that operate under one simple principle - failure is not an option. That's not to say that failure isn't possible, or that the path to growth isn't fraught with obstacles, challenges, rejections, and mistakes. It simply means that once you set your eyes on a goal, you'll do nearly anything to try to attain it.
In this episode Adam shares how he discovered and developed a passion for what he once hated - coffee, and the steps he took in the early days to land major distributors like Whole Foods. We also learn how him and his brother started attracting major seed investors to source and launch a new product called Cascara Tea, breaking down exactly how the team is investing the money to grow this new product line.

Insightful conversations about entrepreneurship
The two guy who host this do a good job of digging deep during the interviews, and also providing their insights as the conversations progress. Nice change of pace from some of the more serious shows out there about scaling startups, and the founders they interview seem more like regular people who have figured out how to run a business.
