Frequently Asked Questions
Wisdom is a pragmatic solution to monetize your expertise, while doing good by helping people. We need people like you to make Wisdom a success! We provide mentors/experts with the necessary tools to take questions from your community while monetizing your expertise and building your professional brand.
Unlike other apps, Wisdom is optimized to put you in control with only one guest at a time and a timer format to make it easy and socially acceptable to move on to the next person in line. It is not geared to the Elon’s and Bill Gates’s of the world. For the mentor, it is a practical way to build a following around your personal brand and to monetize that guidance.
Think of Wisdom as an intellectual and artistic community where you need neither be an intellectual or an artist.
We mean for Wisdom what the Renaissance writer Alberti called “discourse in the public sphere.” Wisdom is a place to brainstorm, to find new ideas, and to learn from doers and thinkers alike. We believe ideas arise in gatherings where diverse people come together serendipitously to discuss matters of importance. That is our goal — to build that gathering place.
The mentoring will cover every topic imaginable.
To join, simply sign up to be a Top Mentor, and we will keep you up to date on our plans and the launch, and then at the launch you will have the status of Top Mentor automatically when you sign up.
People like you, experts and people with deep domain expertise, have a problem. They get too many inbounds with no easy way to monetize them. There is a chasm between recognition as an expert and the ability to monetize that expertise. They receive in-bound interest on LinkedIn and other channels from people seeking to network, and they have no way to plausibly engage with everyone or to separate interesting inbounds from unwanted inbounds.
As a result, they ignore almost all inbound requests on social platforms, and the only way to reach them is to come in via a mutual well-liked contact. This is a friction Wisdom eliminates by allowing monetization to flow from mentee to mentor. In this way, Wisdom democratizes access to mentors.
What makes Wisdom special is the nature of its social graph. Clubhouse is a messy talk graph focused on anyone of interest. LinkedIn is the social graph of colleagues, whereas Wisdom is the social graph of mentors.
The Wisdom social graph is differentiated from the LinkedIn graph; it is more the aspirational-version of that graph where you follow people a few levels higher than yourself, your mentors, people whose advice and network are relevant to your career and growth, people you could never access via your existing network.
Every minute you speak will earn a currency that is redeemable for cash rewards. We also have additional monetization for mentors planned.
We are backed by institutional venture capital, but we are still in stealth mode and not revealing many details until we are closer to the launch date.
There is no cost to be a Top Mentor or to offer any form of mentorship to the Wisdom community.
The service has sophisticated neural network AI to solve the issue of discovery and make it as easy as possible to match the person with an important question to the person most likely to have the answer.
The primary interaction is between a mentor and a mentee in an audio chat. We provide mentors/experts with the tools to take questions from their community that enables them to monetize their expertise and further build their professional brand.
The app will launch on iOS first, but we have Android already in the works, and it will fast follow the iOS version.
