Do you ever feel stuck when starting a new project? Would you like a support system to collaborate with? Idea Climbing® helps entrepreneurs, privately held company owners and thought leaders solve problems by expanding their network, building their brand and increasing their marketing outreach.

Most mentoring programs have no formal structure beyond matchmaking software. That’s a big problem. Idea Climbing® provides structure for existing mentoring programs or we can build a new one and create a blueprint, structure and strategy for new mentoring programs so participants can create successful mentoring experiences AND create marketing results.

Idea Climbing® is the result of 22 years of research about mentoring and collaboration. I’ve had hundreds of formal interviews with people of all walks of life from CEO’s, serial entrepreneurs and NY Times best selling business authors to multi-platinum musicians, successful improvisors and everyone in between. This means that I draw on a wealth of experiences to make your projects a success.

It’s the process of solving problems by co-creating opportunities with other people. It starts with an idea that you want to bring to fruition. Then you connect and collaborate with mentors, peers and referral sources who can help with advice, support and connections to solve problems and create opportunities.

You combine ideas, take action together, reach new plateaus, create new ideas and get new results. The process repeats and everyone involved can “climb” higher together than any single person could alone.


The Three Components Of Idea Climbing


This is EXPERIENTIAL advice, not opinions, not being told what to do.

It’s sharing stories about how someone else solved a problem similar to yours to give you ideas for solutions and vice versa.


This is more than just a pat on the back or saying “good job”.

Support is a validation of your ideas and letting you know that you’re on the right track OR letting you know that you might be moving in the wrong direction and giving you support to change your direction.


Business is all about who you know and who knows YOU. Idea Climbing™ is all about who you can help and who can help you.

New connections are the key to new ideas and combinations of ideas that help you climb higher than you ever could alone.
