NOTHING HAS EVER BEEN GIVEN TO ME.
I never had an overnight success. I grew up in a poor family with very limited resources. I didn’t have any mentors who could guide me through how to create success. I have struggled through years and years of hard work sacrificing things I care about like my relationships and personal health. I have lost more money than I care to admit and know the feeling of failing.
About 20% of new businesses survive past their first year of operation. After that, the percentage rate gets pretty depressing. Starting a business that will lead to success is hard. Here is the truth – for most failed businesses it IS NOT making a good product or service that kills the business – it is all the other crap that no one tells you about that will take you out.
DID I SCARE YOU YET? KEEP READING.
Small business owners are the heart and sole of the country and create the majority of jobs that keep everyone working. They risk the most and often have the least help. That’s where this website comes in.
HERE IS WHAT I CAN DO FOR YOU.
With all the hardship and failure, I have also found success. I have worked since the age of 18 years old to create and support companies. Several of my businesses have created millions of dollars of value, drew in hundreds of thousands of users and customers and raised millions of dollars in capital.
You want success but you can’t do it alone.
The only way to get where you want to be is through help. I want to help. I will help you take the journey from idea to reality. I will give you REAL and HONEST advice and I won’t sugar coat a damn thing. I get irritated by all the unrealistic and inaccurate feedback out there. All too often, people “target” new business owners working to change their lives as a way to suck money out of them because they are naive. It’s crap.
I will help you by being OPTIMISTIC but not oblivious to real challenges. I am here to provide you with resources, avoid pitfalls, and make your idea grow.
Will you always agree with me? Probably not, but I’m okay with that. Even so, you will always get content that is personal and sincere. I will always encourage you to share your opinion even if it differs from mine. As far as I’m concerned, anyone willing to take the risk and try to start their own business has my respect.
