Is a Business, Career, or Practice Development  Mentor right for you?

  I've been mentoring business owners and career professionals for more than 40 years.

My industry is business incubation.

I am Founder and Director of Research for the first business incubator in Houston - which became the oldest business incubator in Texas.

I also founded the first Womens Business Center in the nation and, in a 5 year period, 6 of the women I was working with were honored as "Women     of Excellence" by the prestigious and powerful Federation of Houston Professional Women.

My most recent project for all the contemporary nomad, device connected start-up entrepreneurs (where physical office space in not wanted or needed) is the first Virtual Incubation Program in the world.

My business-owner clients have won essentially every award for business growth in Houston, some nationally, some even internationally and they continue to do so, with the most recent being a former client achieving Inc. 5000 recognition, again, in August of 2016.

My career clients have ranged from entry level candidates to executives in the largest corporations in the United States to sole practitioners enhancing their professional positions.

My clients span the globe and some of my client relationships have lasted decades because I consistently provide exceptional value with the special skills to keep clients mindful of things to be done, knowledgeable of how to do them, and inspired to get them accomplished.

Let's see if my abilities would be an appropriate fit for your plans, goals and ambitions.

For no fee I'll be delighted to answer any questions you have regarding mentoring and how we might work together. However, should you be seeking specific advice regarding advancement of your business, career or practice, the significant call volume activity being consistently generated on this page necessitates a preliminary screening fee and I'll consult with you at the rates shown with no contract required. Make your selection from the schedule below and connect on Skype (ID is dean.kring) or call me at 713.932.7495 x 1.

Your fee is not processed should you not be completely satisfied at the close of our session.

Preliminary Consultation Fee

If you have no budget with which to retain a mentor, I cannot assist you further and suggest you contact the U.S. Small Business Administration free service partners SCORE, SBDC, or WBC. These assistance programs are provided by your tax dollars. Please mention my name as having referred you, and, in the event you have a business or are planning on starting a business, insist on having someone work with you who has successful hands-on business ownership experience.

Should you wish specific examples of how you will progress under my mentoring, schedule an Entrepreneurial/Intrapreneurial Assessment and we'll review your individual resources, aptitude and attributes for the process and discuss your opportunities in complete detail.

If you have been referred to me or have already had a mentoring session with me and have decided you wish to work with me on an ongoing basis, my suggestion is a one year engagement. My preferred fee agreement allows me to participate in your financial successes and is defined as:
1) An Engagement Fee of $10,000.00 to commence.
2) A monthly Development Fee of $500.00 to keep your attention.
3) A 5% Royalty Interest in your salary or revenue growth from wherever you are now.
4) A 5% Performance Bonus when you reach an annual salary or revenue target. You set this target amount. Make it the home run for your goals, aspirations and ambitions. Email me this number suitable to you and I'll send you a simple, 1 page agreement for us to get started.

With this agreement,  I'm available to you 24/7 and we'll have a scheduled Professional Development Advisory of 1 to 2 hours weekly on the 1st, 3rd and 4th week of each month via video conference or telephone.

By the way, did you know that 93% of the world's richest people have a mentor? Now, isn't that interesting? View the video about selecting a mentor here.
