You will also be able to access our exclusive forum to help you fully explore each topic and ask questions of your classmates and the Core Advantage Team.

As we update and add new elements to the Mentorship you will be able to access these for no extra charge.

Why do I have to wait to access the course?

The short answer is it’s just a better way to learn.


The course is run in a similar style to a university semester, with 18 weeks of content released one unit at a time every week. The first week is launched on June 23rd.

We made a touch decision when we launched the course to have it be this way in order to maximise the learning and retention while minimising the overwhelm of not knowing where to start or what fits in where.

The course is very much a collective, with the sum of the parts being much more powerful than each individual unit, so we deliver it in a specific order to improve retention and deepen the understanding around each crucial principle and concept.

This means we restrict the start dates, limit ourselves to only three intakes per year and have each cohort go through the course together. This means we are likely to sell far fewer of the courses, but every student who goes through the course will have a transformational experience and change the trajectory of their career.

The beauty of the course is that after the 18 week semester is finished you maintain lifetime access to the content to go back over and review as you need

In saying that, if you don’t want to or cannot go through the course like this you are welcome to jump in and out of the content as you like.

When does the course start?

The Mentorship begins Sunday 23rd of June.

Each unit being released weekly on Sunday for 18 weeks.

How will I access the content?

The content is delivered weekly via our website Every week for 18 weeks a new unit will be released for you to work through and study.

Each topic will include a series of talks, slideshows, and theory. Along with links to topical podcasts, articles, and research papers for you to browse.

What happens if I fall behind the content?

Don’t worry, you will always have access to the content which you can watch as many times as you like.

To get the most out of the course we recommend you keep pace with the group. That way you can participate in the forum and live Q&A’s to enhance your learning. But if life gets in the way, don’t stress you can also do the course at your own pace, or jump in and jump out.

How do I access the forum?

The forum will be available via the website after you signup.

How do I access the live sessions?

The live sessions will be linked via the Live tab of the mentorship.

We will conduct these on Zoom and record each session for you to watch later if you are not able to join us in real time.

We will also use the live sessions to go over key topics that come up during the forum discussions each week.

What if I can't make the live sessions?

Don’t worry, we will record and publish each one on the Live page within the Mentorship.
