Last Chance to Submit your iMentor Application!
NASMM offers a specialized program specifically designed for experienced NASMM members to offer paid, professional mentoring to less experienced NASMM members. It's called iMentor.

Why iMentor? New or growing small business owners are in business by themselves, often acting as their own navigation system. Without a large organization's resources, they long for a sounding board for their frustrations and fears or a discreet, impartial advisor with whom to discuss the tactical and strategic challenges of running their Senior Move Management business.

They're frequently adjusting to changing circumstances, new business conditions, and unforeseeable challenges. Consulting with a Senior Move Manager mentor — someone who knows what they're going through — can be invaluable. A mentor is someone who's "been there, done that." Mentors can provide tailored guidance, general best practices, and an example of a successful Senior Move Management business. Enter iMentor. We're making it easy for less experienced members to find one-on-one support while also providing successful Senior Move Managers with the opportunity to share their experience and expertise, all while being paid to do so.

NASMM is now accepting applications for new iMentors. NASMM will accept 20 iMentor applications. Submit your application by Friday, April 13.

When your clients and their families look to you and ask should we keep or sell these items, how will you answer?
