Has working for yourself become as bad as that cubicle job you hated? 

Do you ever feel strapped, overwhelmed, and alone?  

Starting a business is great!

Until you realize that you have traded a 40 hour a week job for an 80 hour a week job that pays less and has a worse boss.

Endless failed strategies fuel a sense of desperation, loneliness, and a powerful desire to call it quits.

Not exactly the impact, freedom, or wealth you had imagined.

Here is the truth:

Whether you have business experience or not, you can create a successful business.

But doing it on your own is a long, painful process that depends more on luck than skill. 

We get it, we’ve been there.

From crying at the dinner table over a pile of unpaid bills to grinding away day after day with nothing to show for it – we’ve made the mistakes.

And if you stick to it, you’ll figure it out. Probably.

But wouldn’t it be nice to have a roadmap, tools and support to build a business around your priorities,


Here is the thing, building a business is a process

Success does not usually come from a random walk through silver bullet strategies that don’t work.

Or from gurus with all of the answers.

It comes from building a machine, doing work that counts, and working with others.
