What Members & Mentors Have to Say
When we started the VMS program with NEXT, we knew we would have access to some very smart and successful people, but we had no idea how much the relationships we would create there would help our business. Our mentor group has helped answer some of our most pressing and difficult questions. The level of trust within our group allows us to tackle issues, get advice, and come up with actionable items that otherwise come only from years of experience. We are better founders and have a stronger and faster-growing organization as a result of the VMS program.
I continue to be amazed by two things with these mentors: 1. How quickly they can jump into a conversation and immediately have ideas and provide valuable information very relative to the conversation or question at hand; 2. How ‘invested’ I feel they are in my business. With absolutely no financial gain, I truly believe I have mentors who want to help me succeed and have a true interest in me and what I am doing. Amazing! I would recommend VMS to ANYBODY in need of guidance no matter where they are in their business.
