MentorU Looking For The Young & Talented Who Want To Learn Business


The following  was posted on Realizing Potentials page on Facebook  on Tuesday this week.


“Young and Talented? Want your own digital business right now with a Mentor/Coach/Partner built in?

We have a new MentorU project here at Realizing Potentials. (Realizing Potentials is a cause related project of The RempelGroup and founder and CEO, Bob Rempel)

For talented young people who want to partner with the Rempel Group, which is me, Bob Rempel, as owner, to help develop some underdeveloped website properties and some ecommerce, kindle, and web app projects. These ideas and domains have been sitting around much too long. I’ve invested in them, I will continue, but they need to be developed. Which brings us to MentorU

Easy entry to part ownership. Sweat Equity it is typically called, but let’s call it Brain & Sweat Equity instead. A small sign up/committment fee of $100 to join the program can be paid up front. Or you can choose to have $150 deducted from initial revenues.

After that we typically we will share profits and you will be an owner of a legitimate online business with almost unlimited potential to earn based on two things: 1) working smart 2) working hard. Of course we could add networking and good fortune and more but those are the two main things.

Simply, your talent and dedication will determine how far you go here as a business owner.

I’ve been distracted by my work in creating the 20-20-Leaders With Vision Business Coaching Program (see but now it’s time for me to at least give part of my time to mentoring and coaching the talented people who apply to join. Yes, I realize I will also benefit as the businesses grow.

How to apply and get in? Like this page, please first and then leave your name in the comments with a simple message that you are interested. Working in multiple languages is very helpful in all business and these projects, however, some English will be necessary. All types of backgrounds and interests are useful. Passionate interests and being a quick learner will work best.

You’ll hear from me asking for more information about yourself. Look forward to working together as partners, with me as your mentor and coach and much more as required.”

You know your business best!  What is the value of one new customer a day brought in by a great review of your business?

Realizing Potentials, non profit, in early phase development


Please check over at for the latest updates on the Realizing Potentials project during our early stage development and sign up for our email updates.


We are pleased to announce that the Realizing Potentials project is live and active in Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo, Mexico it’s testing and development location.

Realizing Potentials is a development project that will help young people with identified potential to be future leaders in every sector of society.

Initially it will act to motivate and encourage them and help remove barriers that are in their way.  It will match the young people with the skills, experience and resources of active and semi-retired in a one-to-one mentoring arrangement.   That portion of the program will be termed MentoringU and may eventually be spun off to be a stand alone program.

The project and it’s leadership will always think globally and locally at the same time, and will be solutions focused with a one person at a time philosophy.  It will be people focused primarily, but flexible to act as well in areas such as environmental protection and animal rescue and protection or others once the people resources are in place.

In it’s early phase the project will be located in Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo, Mexico and Winnipeg, Canada. Young people from 13-29 will be considered for inclusion.  Sports programs, language, cultural and technology training and access to micro funding for entrepreneurial or community initiatives will also be part of the program.

“After six years providing executive and day-to-day leadership and management at a Winnipeg non profit that utilized a social enterprise model to create real employment in support of mental health in the community, and a government and a private sector careers earlier, this is the kind of program I can get behind 100% and lead and impact young people’s lives throughout the world”, said Robert (Bob) Rempel, initiator of the program.

“The appeal of this program to both participants and future funders and supporters, I believe”, said Rempel, “is that we are going to work to develop individuals to their full potential if they become motivated enough to join with us, and we are going to resurrect the talents and training of late career individuals or semi-retired individual and involve them in truly meaningful ways.

People connections is the essence of a true sustainable non profit organization, my experience tells me,” said Rempel.

Further announcements about programs and participants will be made during the early growth and test phase expected to last until November 1, 2015.

Great Mentoring Far More Than Finding The First Person Who Says He-She Will Mentor You.



Often overlooked in the personal development literature is the role of the life and business (for profit or not for profit) mentor. So much talent in mid and late career that wants to give back and just needs to be organized.  Same reason I loved coaching youth after a successful competitive amateur sports career.  Some great thoughts at this Idealist Careers article about the importance of diversifying your mentoring.

Watch for a new social enterprise coming soon providing mentoring, training and assistance to Mexican youth and young adults who participate on a voluntary basis with sponsorship. Announcement and details will be at and at the project’s new website.  For more information prior to February 1 launch date, contact Project Leader, Bob Rempel at
