If you were struggling before COVID, and you are struggling now…

You can’t blame COVID for it.

Yes, I get it.  There are new reasons things are harder, and new challenges to overcome.

But I doubt that’s what’s actually holding you back.

Covid is a convenient excuse for those who were not getting results before to continue to let themselves off the hook.

I know so many agency owners and entrepreneurs who have seen massive growth during this time.

If you’re not one of them, I have a question for you:

What excuses have you been holding on to? 

Let me give you a few I’ve heard on some recent coaching calls:

I got laid off.  I live in a small town.  No business wants to spend money. I don’t have the experience.  I have no leads. 

Listen, we’ve all been dealt a bad hand.

But you’re still in control.

You can keep listening to the news.  You can keep arguing with strangers on Facebook.


You can turn that off and get to work.

You will look back on this time and see it as either the best or worst thing to have happened to you.

You’re in control of how this story ends and it’s not too late to write your new ending.

It’s time to take some bold new action.

For the last few days I’ve been talking about the opportunity to jump on a free strategy session to explore the opportunity to enroll in my Inner Circle.

The Inner Circle is a 12 month coaching program designed to give you the exact next step you always need to take so you can confidently move forward in your business.

This is not a course.

Yes, there is training included and access to some new things we’ve only previously reserved for our agency’s private use.

This is a coaching and accountability program.

One in which my business partner AJ and I are hands on and invested in your success.

Due to the nature of this program,  we cannot work with an unlimited number of students.

This is why we’re inviting you to apply for the program.  Applying does not guarantee entry to Inner Circle.

We are looking for agencies who are willing to do the work needed to actually grow.  A short interview after you apply will tell us all we need to know about your situation and ability to implement what we teach.
