AUSTIN, TX - 3/2/2016 (PRESS RELEASE JET) -- Introducing a unique social advice site designed to foster experience and expertise sharing in a safe, credible and rewarding environment. Launching at South By Southwest 2016, TurtleWise leverages the expertise and experience of its users to improve the lives of its entire online community.
TurtleWise is a social network that connects Explorers searching for advice, with Gurus who can offer reliable advice based on their areas of experience and expertise. Our initial focus will be on six “clusters of excellence”: Military, Entrepreneurship, Lifestyle/Family, Career, Education, and Politics. The number of clusters will expand rapidly as new users bring new expertise and experience to the community.
So how does it work? Explorers (avid learners) can create a profile and seek advice from self-selected members of the TurtleWise community. Gurus (experts) can view Explorer dilemmas and respond based on their specific life experiences. If an Explorer wants to deepen his or her engagement with a Guru or group of Gurus, he or she can choose to establish a direct chat in a safe and private environment. TurtleWise encourages community and relationship building for both the Explorer and the Guru.
With a growing number of Gurus ranging from elite Military professionals, super moms, Forbes published writers, political insiders and even Grammy nominated music producers, Explorers will have unparalleled access to credible and accomplished mentors. Gurus can build an expanded network, gain personal satisfaction from helping others and earn money through chat revenue opportunities. Every TurtleWise user is rated on his or her engagements and rewarded with in-site credentials as well as tangible rewards, including the opportunity to donate to TurtleWise select charities.
Anyone can sign up as an Explorer and TurtleWise is actively seeking to grow its pool of Gurus. In fact, we encourage every user to be enriched through both roles. Download the TurtleWise app or sign up at turtlewise.net. The iOS App and Android compatible web versions will be available at South By Southwest.
Kevin Walker, the founder and CEO of TurtleWise, believes that, “The difference between a good life and a great life is one’s ability to seize both opportunities to learn and opportunities to serve. TurtleWise exists to facilitate both.”
