I'm not a "business" expert or all-knowing guru.
I'm not even an authority at very much, to be honest.
But I do know what I'm fucking great at. And that's 2 things.
Superpower #1: Teaching freelancers how to land higher paying gigs. I use my experience winning six-figure freelance contracts with companies like LinkedIn, Zendesk and CreativeLive, to help my students go from freelancing on the side—to running a full-time consulting business.
Superpower #2: Teaching aspiring entrepreneurs how to build a profitable blog. Over the past two years, I've grown my blog to more than 200,000 monthly readers. I've built a community of more than 36,944 subscribers. I launch tons of tests, experiments, and share behind-the-scenes of what's working (and what's not).
If you're looking for easy tips to make a quick buck, a template for creating a drop-shipping business, or advice for exploiting random market opportunities, you won't find any of that here.
This community is for people who are here to hustle and build a meaningful business.
For people who are willing to work hard. To do whatever it takes to bring your vision to life. To summon small moments of courage and push yourself outside of your comfort zone. To begin the transformation you've been craving in your life.
For those of you who know you're meant for more than just a mindless 9-to-5.
If you're ready to commit to building a business that gives you the lifestyle you want, this is for you.
Why do I care if you're able to build a successful business or not?
I have a friend that went to a great college. Super smart. Always had better grades than me. And right after graduating, he got a kick-ass job in finance, making almost six-figures. He was pumped.
Fast forward five years to today... all I hear are complaints about how much he hates his job. The hours are brutal, his boss sucks, he's making good money, but not quite enough to afford buying a house and starting a family with his fiancé anytime soon. He's burning out and isn't doing anything that energizes him.
Every time we see each other or catch up on the phone, he talks about wanting to do his own thing. To finally start working on a side hustle of his own. To lay the foundation for eventually quitting his job.
But there's never any real action. Just the same story, on repeat over and over again.
He's comfortable enough with his job, despite wanting (and knowing he deserves) more.
School always came easy for him, and he doesn't want to fail at building his own business. He's waiting for a sure thing to come along and knock on his door.
So why do I care about this?
Nothing pisses me off more than seeing smart, talented people not living up to their fullest potential. Falling short on creating things that could benefit us all, because they're either afraid of failure, or allergic to the hard work it takes to forge your own path in life.
I wholeheartedly believe it's an injustice to the people in your life—and to the rest of us, when you're not doing what it takes to become the best possible version of yourself.
Me? I'm not the smartest person in the room. But I'll tell you what I am—I'm not afraid to work harder, fail more times, and get back up, more than just about anyone else.
Ultimately, I do this because I'm selfish.
Because I benefit... we all benefit... from you rising and creating more value in the world.
It's my personal mission to help more people like you, to break free from the confines of our traditional workforce. To empower you to create a fuller life for yourself. To use your skills and build a business that provides value to others.
I'll warn you right now though... when you sign up, I'm going to hold you accountable.
There isn't room in this community for people who aren't committed to creating the change they seek.
If you don't know how to get to where you want to go, don't worry—I'll show you.
As long as you're willing to do what it takes, I'm all in on helping you get there.
