The Threesticks team are fortunate to be surrounded by people who have helped shaped us as professionals and as people. They have encouraged us to be better, to work smarter (not always harder), to experiment (and to fail), to do what is right (and not always popular), to challenge the norm, and just to be all around good humans.
We want to pay it forward! And this is why Threesticks offers a mentoring program for new graduates, for those entering the world of compensation, or for those who just want to chat about their ideas, their careers, and their lives.
Rhea Mercado is our current mentor and we hope to add more mentors to the program.
The 12-Session Program
For 2021, we have taken on four mentees. The cost to theses mentees is a cup of hot chocolate, and a double scoop of ice-cream for our time. In return, we ask for 12 hours of the mentee’s time to participate in the program.
We also hope that as our mentees progress through their lives and careers, that they pay it forward and choose to mentor others.
If you are not a part of our 12-session program for 2021, you can purchase individual mentoring sessions by clicking here. All sessions run for 1.5 hours and are run by Rhea Mercado. Have a read at our mentoring specialties below.

About the Program
The Threesticks Mentoring Program runs for 12 hours. The frequency and duration of sessions will vary depending on the mentee’s goals, needs, and upon the agreement made between the mentor and the mentee.
The mentee will be required to keep a Record of Mentorship to document each session, reflect upon the sessions, and complete any “homework” in preparation for the following session.
The program is generally guided by the mentee, and is focused on their goals and what they hope to achieve from the sessions.
Mentees say the darndest things…
“It’s safe to say that 3 months in and I certainly feel a great deal of (more) gratitude for the time you took to show me the ropes of this industry”-Ayna (A newbie to rehab – and a natural at it)
“I have made good progress on down-scaling my business. I have also started employment elsewhere which has been great! I’m really enjoying it”-Bree (who left the world of exercise rehab to start her new adventure. Get ’em girl!)
“Only 2 very minor grammatical errors”-F.R. (A mentee who helped us with some proof reading, and who likes to wear snapbacks)
“I don’t know why people hate rehab? It’s so much fun! I love billable hours. I’m such a numbers person.”-Sam F (10 years a clinician and finally moved to the Light side she did)
“Everyone in my new team is WAY older than me. I feel terrible if I have to ask them to do something, it feels like I’m asking my Mum for money”-B.M (Now a senior manager with a ridiculously long job title, so fancy!)
“F*** this!”-A.N (A mentee expressing his frustration, and who is now feeling much better)
