Accelerate Your Project with Private Mentoring
Private 1:1 mentoring with John Teel for entrepreneurs, startups, inventors, & small companies creating new electronic products.
If you want to accelerate your project there is no better way than private 1:1 mentoring from someone that has the broad experience necessary to develop and sell a new electronic product.
Do you need help navigating the complex product development process? Or do you need help with marketing and/or selling your product?
Maybe you have a prototype but don't know what to do next? Or maybe you just have an idea but need help figuring out how to get started?
From an early idea to building a prototype to scaling up manufacturing, and all the way to market domination, I'm here to help guide you!
You will get the benefits of my years of experience developing electronic products, bringing my own product to market, and helping others make their product a reality.
Although I started my career focused 100% on engineering, I learned to embrace the power of marketing when I launched my own hardware product over 15 years ago.
I'm the rare engineer who loves product development and marketing. In fact, you probably wouldn't be here otherwise:)
There are countless specialists, but my specialty is guiding innovators of new electronic products like you all the way from idea to prototype to market.

Synchronous communication is when two people communicate live at the same time like on a phone or Zoom call.
Asynchronous communication is when each person replies separately like with email.
Asynchronous face-to-face communication is just a method of video communication where two people share a private thread that each can respond to via a video at any time, instead of both people having to be online at the exact same time.
Asynchronous mentoring has many advantages for you including:
- You get the advice you need when you need it, not on some arbitrary call schedule.
- No headaches of scheduling calls at specific times or dealing with time zones. I'm here to help you on your schedule.
- Improves the quality of the mentoring because it gives both of us the time and space to think between replies.
- It makes private mentoring more affordable for you.
Yes, it is. You will automatically be rebilled at the end of each billing cycle.
