As a dynamic entrepreneur and host of the popular podcast, The Mentee, Geoff is famous for connecting with influential leaders and adding value to those who mentor him.

Geoff Woods is the host of the top business podcast, The Mentee. After hearing the Jim Rohn quote, “you are the average of the five people you spend the most time with,” Geoff sought out to surround himself with high-level CEOs and successful entrepreneurs. Because he has been mentored by many of these heavy hitters, Geoff was able to quit his six figure corporate sales job and go full-time as an entrepreneur in less than ten months.

Geoff has been featured in and is considered the authority on building meaningful relationships with high-level influencers, and he publishes his actual conversations with his mentors on in his podcast.

Questions from the show:

“One of my biggest issues is managing my finances between my business and my personal accounts. How do I pay myself regularly when the work is anything but regular?”

“My online business is getting an updated site. The current site is, honestly, really ugly from a design perspective. My partners and I can’t seem to decide if we should start marketing before the new launch or if we should wait until after the launch. If we start marketing now, we can build up hype for the launch day with our current subscribers. On the flip side, if we start a marketing push now, people might see the current site and, which might turn them away. Should we start marketing now or should we wait?”

—Gordon Wood
