Hey everyone, if you havent heard my podcast yet my name is Lavontay Santos and I am a tech startup CEO of a company called Mentorch. Our mission is to optimize human potential by connecting mentors and mentees. In this podcast I talk about the year and what it is like to not see the progress you would like but the need to keep going to see the vision all the way through. Building a tech startup is hard and it wont happen overnight. It certainly wont happen if you quit. Stick in there and know there are tech startup founders all over the world trying to build the airplane on the way down just like you. Stay the course...you're doing great.

"Our company has arisen in a time where consumers have a strong lack of trust with veteran hair care companies. These companies have been using harsh chemicals, cutting corners on ingredients but no reduction in pricing, damaging their hair, and breaking promises by a combination of misinformation and unrealistic growth and health goals for the hair and scalp, since they came into existence. Now, Naturally Vera, LLC intends to show and prove that our hair care methods work and will yield the results that are promised by properly educating our customers and promoting a hair care product line that uses the simplest of ingredients that will allow the achievement of any desired look without compromising the overall quality, strength, or health of the hair.
It is time to put an end to companies in this industry making false claims to the consumer. We will successfully arm our consumers with the knowledge to finally hold other hair companies accountable for the misinformation they have given and the damages to hair and self-esteem that has negatively impacted and affected generations. The competition will be easily weeded out by either being put out of business, forced out of business, or making the right decision to finally give consumers the quality of products and realistic expectations for hair and scalp growth and health that they have paid to receive and have yet to be delivered.
Aside from providing knowledge, we have the upper hand because we have faced the same struggles with our hair that the consumer is still facing. Instead of relying on companies who could not deliver our desired result, we did the necessary research and ultimately created our own product so that we would no longer be taken advantage of. We have the ability to connect with our customers on a personal level over a corporation who only has an interest in the financial benefit of whatever the latest hair care trend may be. Our customers will actually be able to relate to the very face behind Naturally Vera and see themselves in our vision, thus making Naturally Vera their staple product line and a household name."
