What's your business, and who are your customers?
I own an education and training business where I help business owner increase their ROI through any path of their choosing. It's a complete all-in-one solution for any business looking for any solution to grow any aspect of how they operate. 500 hours of training, over 80 templates, and a private community. From their HR department to sales, to optimizing a funnel or driving lead generation - my company teaches it all from a beginner to expert level.
Tell us about yourself
I'm a second-generation digital marketer with a true passion for helping every entrepreneur and business across the world genuinely.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
My biggest accomplishment being a business owner is creating the idea behind Profitalize. After spending over a decade learning, researching, and split-testing the business scaling practices - I've finally been able to put together the largest collection of strategies ever made. I came up with the idea while at a hotel room in Duluth, Minnesota. I was thinking about startup business ideas while relaxing in the room, and then and there, I came up with the original concept.
What's one of the hardest things that comes with being a business owner?
The biggest difficulty of being a business owner is that sometimes you can never get the business off of your mind. You go to a family event, hang out with your kids, go camping, and somehow business thoughts eventually creep in.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
- Relax. Make your business fun again. And enjoy the process.
- Focus on optimizing simple things to become more profitable. Businesses often overcomplicate to try to obtain more profit, and it backfires.
- Never give up. Once you're an entrepreneur, you're always an entrepreneur at heart.
