I was ready to begin my journey of entrepreneurship.
In 2001, I started an online company with just an idea. It grew from zero to $5 million in revenue in three years. It would have been on the Inc 500 that year if I had the time to apply (I didn’t). I carved out a very lucrative niche for my business and positioned it as “the” choice for our target audience. Over that time, I had to learn the importance of leading and the value of execution..
Seeing a new opportunity, I started a second company to serve my clients and soon had two 7-figure businesses.
But, while I was taking my companies into new markets, scaling growth, and personally making more money than I had ever made in my life…I realized I was missing something.
I was missing out on living with a real purpose. I knew that I wanted to innovate within my industry and create new tools and new technologies, but I was TRAPPED in my own success. Here is my book that tells you more about “The Trap of Success.”
Unfortunately, I ignored those desires to create innovation and build a business that I truly wanted. Instead, I focused on just scaling my previous systems, and one day it all came to an end. In 2010, I lost it all – the business, the money – everything. In an instant, I lost a business deal and my business imploded. To the tune of losing more than $3 million in one day.
Ouch is an understatement!
This excruciating ordeal shook me to my core and caused me to rethink everything in my life and business.
I started working with high-performing leaders to achieve even greater results. They were founders, CEOs, and visionary leaders to generate growth in their business. I studied everything there was to study how to overcome limits, tap into sustainable growth, and empower leaders to achieve more.
This potential career-ending setback, began a new journey in my life with a mission to partner with business leaders to help them unlock the growth potentials they may not know exist.
Since then, my research has been featured in Forbes, Inc Magazine, Business Insider, Success Magazine, YAHOO!, NBC, and Entrepreneur Magazine.
I love to write about leadership and culture that activates new growth. My work appears in large publications like Inc, Entrepreneur, and Success Magazines. I host a podcast, Growth Think Tank, which is different in that it is focused on interviews with Founders and CEOs of fast-growth companies — the Inc 5000 — to share insights of growth.
