About This Show
Entrepreneurship is a rollercoaster, and The Mentors are here to help you through it.
This podcast is for anyone that has ever wondered what it's like to go through a multi-million dollar acquisition, only for the company that acquired you to dissolve 3 months later. Or what it takes to negotiate free office space for your business in one of the busiest neighborhoods in New York City. Or how to make thousands of dollars from a business idea you came up with only 48 hours earlier. The Mentors will walk you through how they've done all this and more.
Twin brothers Sergei and Vadim Revzin, whose work has been featured on MSNBC, Forbes, Xconomy, and Crains, will guide you through the ups and downs of running a business, and what it takes to be a creator.
Now you can learn from their experiences, and hear incredible stories from the hundreds of entrepreneurs they've mentored, to help you with your own creative and entrepreneurial journey.

When Should I Quit My Job?
3 days ago
Every creator and entrepreneur dreams of one day quitting their job to commit full time to their true passion, but when is the right time to do this?
It's easy to trick yourself into thinking that if you could just spend 40 hours a week working on your business idea, then you would be successful. But what if you're not? What kind of risk can you expose yourself to?
In this episode we uncover when it's the right time to finally go full time with your business. There's a lot you can do while still having other commitments (like a job).
From spending your free time on becoming a domain expert to validating your idea with real customers, your job is to remove as much risk as possible before taking the "plunge."
Many entrepreneurs and creators only transition to full time when they have too much demand to work on their ideas part time. Everyone's financial and personal situation may vary, but your willingness to do the hard work up front can be a good indicator of your willingness to work through the difficult times of running your own venture.
We talk through our personal stories, and give you examples of other successful entrepreneurs that took the time to validate their ideas before quitting their jobs. We also give you a framework for how to go about quitting your job when the time finally comes.
