Is there a place for paid help on transformers

Looking for resources or folks to help me with some of my projects and ideas 1:1.

I have a bunch of models trained and comfortable with my way around this space, but at a point where I think getting advice from somebody more experienced can help me move much further ahead in my projects.

Forums are okay to a point, but hit or miss on engagement or getting help.

what about Expert Acceleration Program – Hugging Face?

reached out to them a few weeks ago - did not hear anything back. I may not be their target, i am just a solo dev that is trying to learn.

You can try tutors on Wyzant (if you’re US-based) or professionals on Upwork. Upwork will have a much wider selection of people (both knowledgeable and people at or below level).
