Ten years ago, I started my first company with no business experience, no mentor, and absolutely no clue as to what I was doing or getting myself into. So, I learned the hard way, through trial and error, making mistake after mistake, and bumping into walls every direction I ran towards.


Along the way, I invested hours learning about business by reading books, watching videos, and listening to interviews and podcasts but it took be a long time (I believe, too long) before I figured out how to put it all together to reach my goal of exiting my company through M&A (merger & acquisition). 

I look back now and realize how bold and lucky I was to not have crashed and burned my business, my physical health, and my mental wellbeing between when I starting up and when I finally hit my stride. 

Today, I want to help 1st-time entrepreneurs and founders, like you, put it all together quicker than I did, avoid "newbie" mistakes, and overcome both common and unique challenges, to thrive as business owners and to build a solid foundation to support the growth of your business.
