Man I could have used you guys when I was starting out in my 20's. This sounds like a great service. At this 1 tier $49 a mo. I'm wondering how you're planning to scale once customers discover the value of your 1:1 with them. If you gave 10 min a day to each one by phone, your company would be grossing around $10 hr per customer. As this isn't automated in any way, nor would it work if it were, you would need to staff up as you grow. I think you're going to need a couple more tiers of add on services to make your current tier worth it to you. I have some ideas, if you're interested.

@gregw πŸ‘‹ Thanks for your thoughtful comment. You're right that the margins are thin on this offering. We're only taking a limited number of customers at this price point before figuring out how to scale up from there. We plan to tweak and add to the offering over time. Also, Manager by Betterlance is one offering we have. You can find out more about our main offering at Would love for you to share your ideas! Email me at Thanks again.
