About Ask theentrepreneur

  1. What is Ask theentrepreneur?
    Ask
    theentrepreneur is your business and entrepreneuring support partner, an outstanding advisor and wise counsel who will collaborate and assist you with in-depth perspective, expert opinion, sharing of ideas, contributing support resources, and advising you on all phases of business & venture capitalization. Ask theentrepreneur is a way to get the help you need from experienced consultants with vast knowledge, experience and expertise in business and new ventures. When you post a question to Ask theentrepreneur, you specify how much you're willing to pay for an answer. An Ask theentrepreneur mentor will research the information you want and respond back to you via email. You will only be charged for your question if and when an answer is posted to it.

    Your question (if not of a personal nature) will also be publicly viewable on the Ask
    theentrepreneur website so other users can add their insights and share the benefit of the answer. Users who provide comments will not be paid for their postings, but they may add interesting perspectives to the answer provided by the Ask theentrepreneur mentor Your identity and personal information will not be revealed to either the mentor or the community of Ask theentrepreneur users at any time; instead you will be identified only by the question asked.

    Our Ask
    theentrepreneur mentors will do their best to answer every question, some questions simply don't have clear answers. And sometimes, the donation provided for a question is too little to justify the time commitment required for an answer. It's also possible the answer to your question is simply not available. If you do receive an answer, but are not satisfied with it, you can first request an additional response through an "Answer Amplification" request. If still unsatisfied, you can request and apply for a refund.

Asking a question

  1. What questions can I ask?
    You can ask any question that can be answered with words and/or numbers. And you can edit your question's at any time within 24 hours of submission, as long as it is not being worked on by a mentor
    . All questions pertaining to every aspect to your business or venture are accepted. Keep in mind that Ask theentrepreneur is not a substitute for professional advice or services, nor will we knowingly provide answers to assist in illegal activities. We reserve the right to delete questions on a case-by-case basis if they do not comply with our editorial policy and guidelines for "Proper Use," as specified in our Terms of Service.

    Ask
    theentrepreneur discourages and may remove questions that:
    • request private information about individuals
    • want assistance in conducting illegal activities
    • are meant to sell or advertise products
    • refer or relate to inappropriate content
       
  2. How do I clarify my own question?
    You may decide that your question is not clear or specific enough or that it just needs a little change. We do not provide a way for you to modify the original text of your question, but you may re-submit your questions within a 24 hour period, if a Mentor has not yet responded to your questions.  Please state in your heading QUESTION MODIFICATION.

    Sometimes a Mentor will issue a Request for Question Clarification on your question. You may respond directly back to the Mentors request.
     
  3. Do you answer financial, or legal questions?
    We will provide background information and links to other sources for questions of a professional nature, but Ask
    theentrepreneur is not a substitute for professional advice and counsel. If you have a question of this nature, we strongly recommend you consult a professional.

Pricing a question

  1. How much do answers cost?
    The 'donation amount' you set for your question reflects how much you're willing to pay for an answer. That price can be as low as $20 or as high as $200. If you decide you are willing to pay more for an answer after setting your price, you can increase the amount when making your final payment upon receipt of your answer. You'll only be charged the amount you set when and if your question is answered to your satisfaction. If your question is not answered, your initial (50%) donation amount will be promptly refunded to you.
     
  2. How much should I pay for my question? What amount should I set?
    The more research required to find an answer, the higher the fee amount you should set for your question. Three-quarters of your question price goes directly to the Mentor who answers your question
    ; the other 25 percent goes to Ask theentrepreneur to support the service. Setting a price too low to compensate for the time required may result in your question not receiving an answer. The more you are willing to pay, the more likely your question is to get answered quickly.
     
  3. Will I be charged for more than one answer?
    No. You can only be charged for an "answer", and only one answer can be provided to a question. You are in full control of the amount you specify when making your donation through PayPal.  
     
  4. Is my credit card information safe?
    We understand that making a purchase online involves a great deal of trust on your part. We take this trust very seriously, and make it our highest priority to ensure the security and confidentiality of the information you provide. This is why we use PayPal for our payments.  PayPal protects your privacy and security.
