By | Education, Personal, Sales | 2 Comments

I can still remember the moment I became a millionaire.

It took 10 years of failing, getting back up, testing, iterating till finally at 27 years old it happened.

I can still remember the specific moment when I found out.

I was cruising in my broke down, decade old Jetta when my accountant Marc called me to break the news.

He was more excited for me than I was only because he knew how hard I had been working.

Also, he knew in the beginning that I almost lost it all after booking a bunch of revenue and sitting on receivables that were delayed in getting paid.

It almost killed the business.

To say it was a tough journey would be an understatement but what I want to share are the 6 skills that my mentors taught me about creating wealth. Read More

When I was 8 years old I was diagnosed with ADHD, and for most of my childhood I felt broken.

By | Leadership, Motivation, Personal | No Comments

Do you want to improve the quality of your life?

I know that’s a big question … but hear me out.

Last week I shared a killer strategy for overcoming MAJOR challenges in your business.

Today I want to dig deeper and share some important areas that I think could serve you even further.

A few weeks ago I had an entrepreneur I coach go through some major challenges because she had to fire a key employee.

It weighed down on her for weeks as she planned the transition.

No matter how many times we walked through the process, she continued to lose sleep over the fact that in a few days she’d have to let this person go.

Our startup Flowtown was exploding, we’ve got thousands of customers, we’re growing at 30%+ month over month and we decide to raise our next round of funding.

So we did what any founder would do… Read More
