Like-minded peers to upgrade businesses

When you purchase a course, you gain access to our private member Facebook group where you’ll join like minded peers who are upgrading their businesses just like you. You’ll have the opportunity to share your experiences and ask them for support. Everything is confidential. Brian and his coaches will also check in regularly to answer questions.

You’ve probably picked up some great sessions about operating traction and scaling systems, etc. And you’ve been inspired by them. But taking action isn’t always easy, or you might not know where to start. It’s called the KNOWING/DOING gap.

With his guidance we established many new practices that led to a nearly doubling of revenues and profits. He is energetic, positive, personable, and professional.

“I had grown my furniture business successfully for several years, but was feeling stuck. I was referred to Brian who has been a tremendous help. His knowledge, experience, commitment, and enthusiasm have revitalized me and my business. Mostly he’s helped me address what “I didn’t know that I didn’t know” and to begin putting into place the foundational practices that make everything run more smoothly with less direct involvement from me. It’s exciting and I’m very grateful."
