About

5.7 million new businesses have been started in the last year.

Whether out of necessity, pure drive, or through pandemic induced self-awareness, a record number of people are reclaiming control of their income, time, and lives.

While there are many paths to financial independence, starting your own company and building a business is the fastest. After launching three companies, scaling two, and selling one, I can confidently say that owning and monetizing my own time helped me build the life I wanted.

We passionately want to help you do the same.
