what to do NOW
and what’s coming NEXT
to build a great business


Welcome to my website! Thank you for being here. Many of you don’t know that while I was in college, I got in a terrible car accident. I was forced to drop out of school to recover. During that time, I picked up a habit. I started listening to motivational books on tape. Before you know it, I had a library. I started my career working for Tony Robbins. Eventually, I moved from training to technology. I had leadership roles in startups that became big media brands like CBSSports.com, NBC Internet, & FOXSports.com. Next, I started a company that was acquired by Richard Branson’s Virgin Group. I was living the life of my dreams. Until everything changed, in a heartbeat. The market crashed. I lost everything. I went nearly $400,000 in debt. I had to rebuild myself, from the ground up, and get to the other side. Today, I’ve taken this experience, combined it with lessons I’ve learned from others. My purpose is to use it. Use all of it, to help people grow.



What Now? Academy

My mission is to help change the world through entrepreneurship. To empower an army of entrepreneurs, just like you and me, that are dedicated to making a difference. To teach them WHAT TO DO NOW and WHAT’S COMING NEXT to build a great business. To accomplish this goal, the Academy partners with the world’s most forward thinking companies. We build and manage their online schools and academies. This includes all their branded content, community, certifications, and degree programs. Our faculty is comprised of some of the top entrepreneurs, innovators, and key executives in the world. #NoFakeGurus. No #InstagramInfluencers. REAL business men and women, who have built REAL businesses, and continue to make an impact. Together, we have the opportunity to affect millions of people around the world.

Keynote Speaker, Brand Ambassador

I still can’t believe it! I started my professional keynote speaking career over 30 years ago! Back then, I promoted and sold tickets to see the icons of the industry, by conducting training workshops all across North America. From Tony Robbins, to Jim Rohn, and Les Brown, I had a front row seat to watch, learn, and study from the best in the business. Today, my experience with big brands, coupled with my days in the trenches as a bootstrapping entrepreneur, enable me to provide real world experience and practical lessons that can be applied immediately. Why are these presentations so effective? Because I share it all. The big wins and even bigger failures. The business and personal issues we all face, but nobody else wants to talk about. As a result, I’ve been listed as a “Top 10 Speaker” by Entrepreneur and “Top 5 Most Influential Motivational Speaker.”

Masterminds & Live Events

For the past several years, I’ve been busy building a community. A community of business leaders that is absolutely, totally, 1000% committed to seeing each other win. This highly-exclusive, invite-only mastermind group meets three times a year. Just imagine sitting down with the world’s top entrepreneurs and innovators. Immersing yourself in once-in-a-lifetime experiences like jumping out of helicopters with Navy SEALs, going behind the scenes with the NY Yankees, or horseback riding outside of Jackson Hole. Then combining these experiences with priceless relationships and strategies for creating exponential business and personal growth. Being pushed to expand your thinking and perspective in ways you never thought possible. All in a 5-Star setting, with a private chef, and environment that feels like home.

Business Strategist

One of my favorite things to do is work with renegades, revolutionaries, and business rock stars. I love to get in, roll up my sleeves, and help them build great companies. My proprietary business mapping process has been used to transform leaders and their organizations through a direct approach to revenue, scale, and exit. Unfortunately, because of other commitments, I can only work with a small number of people each year. What makes my coaching different is years of direct experience and situational knowledge building great companies. Combine this with an exceptional network and relationship capital that can help move your business further, faster, and with far less capital than you ever imagined.

Tools & Resources

For years, I’ve had a passion, maybe even an obsession, with learning. I’ve used my television, radio, and online platforms to interview people who are the best in the world at what they do. I take what I learn, and combine with my experience, to create step-by-step roadmaps that leaders can use to build great companies. In my latest book titled, “Breakthrough” (published by Entrepreneur Magazine/Entrepreneur Press), I share the stories and lessons learned from people including Gary Vaynerchuk, Sara Blakely, Richard Branson, Daymond John, and more. Readers walk away with a step-by-step roadmap, a playbook, to prepare for entrepreneurship, take ideas to market, and then grow, scale, and position to sell.
