Now when you go to www.popexpert.com you can find great tips and videos on how to do everything from getting started with meditation to hacking your productivity.

"We have received so much positive feedback from people who are learning from experts over live face-to-face video sessions on popexpert, and now we are excited to provide even more opportunities to find the perfect expert and learn something along the way," says Ingrid Sanders, founder and CEO.

popexpert was founded in late 2012 with a focus on making it as easy as booking a meeting in your calendar to meet talented experts over live face-to-face video sessions.  In May 2013 popexpert announced a seed fundraise of $2 million from investors including Learn Capital, Jeff Skoll and Ken Howery.

In just one year, popexpert has developed strong relationships with over 2,000 of the best full-time teachers and coaches in EQ oriented topics including top parenting expert Latham Thomas https://www.popexpert.com/latham-thomas, author of Mama Glow, and health coach Mikaela Reuben https://www.popexpert.com/mikaela-reuben, who has worked as a chef for top celebrities including Owen Wilson.

"Popexpert's new content offering is unique because it helps create new connections.  Not only do you get access to expert perspectives, but I like that you can also engage directly with the experts around specific areas of interest," says Shane Steele, former director of marketing for Twitter. "It's a great way to gain insights and discover new experts."

"It's nice UI and easy to use, I like it. It's fun," says Loic Le Meur, founder of Le Web.

By putting an emphasis on recruiting and building close relationships with top experts in their featured categories, popexpert has created a unique opportunity to offer quality advice at scale that inspires people to live more engaged lives.  

"I have been teaching meditation online for over five years using Skype and a handful of other services for scheduling, payment, communication, and outreach. popexpert rolls all these services into one seamless platform, allowing me to focus my energy on teaching instead of administration while also increasing my exposure to the extended networks of my students," says meditation teacher Kenneth Folk, who was recently featured in Wired Magazine.

As a leading destination for live video expertise and now a resource for quality content from some of the world's most talented experts, popexpert takes away all the excuses and gives curious and passionate people the opportunity to invest in their own happiness and success.

"I have been impressed with the team's ability to gain the support of experts that are simply amazing in their fields," says Ken Howery, cofounder of PayPal and Founders Fund. Ken is also an investor in and Chairman of popexpert. "This is a huge market and popexpert has been dedicated to making it easier to find the thousands of talented experts that are nearly indiscoverable today."
