About IR

IR started back in 2008, a few months before the financial crisis, unfortunately, or fortunately, we were a few months from graduating college. We saw the crisis coming on and decided to get jobs instead of starting out our own music and video production company. Now that our group, The Intelligencer Record, have had stable jobs for the past 8 years, we decided to start a small music and video production company. Since we went on to be successful in our respective fields, we decided to turn our group into an advice blog.

We detest the word “mentorship” and “mentor” because it is so often overused. Thus, we decide to call this an advice blog. A true mentor is someone who inspires you, who helps you along the way and guides you. We’re not that. We’re here to give guidance and aid in whichever way we can, but we can’t be your true mentors since that implies a special relationship and bond.

Regardless of all the terminology, we are here to help. So don’t ever be shy, and shoot us an email! Check out or contact page to reach us faster.
