    Member Testimonials

    “I’ve been working with Kevin Whelan for the past three months. Great insight, advice, and ROI. He’s helping me do things I could never have done by myself.”

    —Mark Evans

    ***

    Within a relatively short period of time, Kevin legitimately transformed my consulting business. I was struggling with a lack of focus, my website didn’t speak to my target audience and my branding was misaligned. Considering my job is to help other companies find their way out of similar messes, it’s hard to believe my own business was in such bad shape. Kevin helped narrow my target market, write better copy and establish the tools and resources I needed to operate efficiently. Then he helped me design the engagement processes for my clients, providing me with a scalable and proven system I can use over and over again.” —Doug Jones

    ***

    Mindshare is a goldmine of digestible nuggets of real-world insight from somebody who’s earned his stripes in the marketing world.

    Most importantly, I’ve made new business connections through the Mindshare community and have been able to ask, and get direct, tailored responses, to questions and challenges I deal with in the day-to-day operation of my business.

    I couldn’t recommend this enough as a professional investment.

    —Taylor M., Copywriter

    ***

    I started speaking to Kevin approximately 2 months ago, and in those 2 months, I’ve learnt more about marketing than I did at 4 years of college and one year in an agency. I cannot recommend enough this service. Kevin’s analytical thinking and skin in the game from having done it before are a welcome introduction to anyone looking to break into marketing. He knows what works, what doesn’t, and there’s always a why behind advice or thoughts.

    —David J., Agency Employee & Aspiring Consultant

    ***

    Through your Mindshare subscription, you’ve opened my eyes to new and exciting possibilities that have already helped me identify an area of expertise to package and sell to clients. I look forward to each new installment.

    —Barb H., Consultant

    ***

    As an agency owner, I struggle with separating strategy and execution along with being another “me too” agency.

    Thanks to Kevin’s invaluable insights, I’ve been able to start that separation of strategy and execution. as a result it has helped build stronger trust between my clients and I, structure more profitable engagements and scale my agency faster.

    Between the deeply insightful knowledge and active community of peers, Kevin’s group has been an excellent investment. I highly recommend signing up and taking advantage of it.

    —Jordan C., Agency Owner

    ***

    Mindshare has already done so much for in the little time that I have joined in regards to getting me to think about my business differently in order for me to grow my revenue.

    Kevin’s content is very relevant in helping me grow my business while keeping true to being a one-woman show. He is highly attentive (gets back to me within the same day with a podcast), highly transparent with his advice and business, and highly knowledgable in all areas of marketing. If you’re a marketing consultant I highly suggest working with Kevin and joining one of is his mentorship programs.
