Dear Friend,

If your lifestyle business dreams are turning into long hours of hustle and grind, then this is the most important message you could ever read.

Starting a lifestyle business can seem easier said than done. That’s because many people believe that in order to start a business they need to have their own products, goods and services.

I used to think that way when I first started.

Let me know… have you ever heard anyone say?

  • I want to complicate my life with a stressful business
  • I want to hustle and work long hours

  • I want to turn my home into a storage facility

  • I want to invest in products no one will ever buy

  • I want to bug my friends and family to buy from me

Yet that’s exactly what ends up happening to many new business owners.

If starting a lifestyle business or using the internet as an income source is on your agenda, then it’s very important that you get clear on what you want, why you want it, and how you will get there before you start.

I Know the Struggle Very Well…
After 2 Years of Trial and Error, I Was Still Working Long Hours with No End in Sight.

Most people have no idea how hard I worked to make my lifestyle business work.

They only see the rewards I now enjoy and quote me as saying:

“If you are using the word “hustle” to describe your lifestyle business,
then you are in the wrong business.”

You see, in early 2013 I got laid off from a senior corporate job that I loved. For months, I had watched other employees get laid off one by one. I knew my turn was coming, but there was nothing I could do about it.

Looking for a new job was a humbling experience. I had no idea the job market had changed so much.

That’s when I started my first business and I have never looked back.

I have to confess, it was a bumpy ride at first.

As an employee, I only had to focus on my projects and tasks. I was not prepared to tackle all aspects of a business. I was overwhelmed with the amount of information I had to go through and I made some costly mistakes that delayed my progress.

Things only started to change when I found a mentor who explained my options to me in a simple and easy to understand way.

I Noticed That Business Coaches and Mentors
Are Not Created Equally…

As I started my entrepreneurial journey, I quickly realized that I needed someone to hold my hand and show me the shortcuts. That’s when I signed up with several business and online marketing courses.

Through one of my courses, I was assigned my first business coach.  This coach was excellent at dealing with mindset issues and helping me identify what I want from my business journey and why. BUT… he had no idea how to build the type of online business I wanted for myself.

After a couple months of weekly calls, I became very frustrated talking about mindset and goals, when all I needed was someone to show me how to build my online business. I needed business, technical and marketing help.

Plus, his entire coaching business was based on exchanging time for money. Which means if he is not working, then he won’t get paid.

I don’t know about you, but that sounds a lot like a job to me. That’s when I realized it was time to move on and find another coach.

During that time, I had joined an accountability team with three of my fellow business students. We formed a great support system for each other but none of us had any real-life online business skills. It wasn’t long before they all quit the entrepreneurial journey leaving me hanging with no support system.

The words of Darren Hardy soon came back to mind:

“Never ask advice of someone with whom
you wouldn’t want to trade places.”

That’s when I sought out a mentor that already had the type of business I wanted.

Following his tips, advice and strategies allowed me to scale my services business and tap into additional sources of income using products, affiliate marketing and licensing… all delivered remotely.

Finally, I had a business that gave me time and location freedom I had always dreamed of.

Since I started my business, I have traveled to many new places I had never been to before. I have been to the Bahamas, Costa Rica, Curacao, Malaysia, Singapore, Hungary and Austria to name a few.

You see, it doesn’t matter where I am, because I conduct my business using my laptop.

At a time when many people are looking for a job, I am creating jobs.

And, let me tell you, that’s an amazing feeling!

Now I see so many newbies going through the same struggles I did when I started. That’s why I am very passionate about sharing the same principles that helped me build a lifestyle business with multiple sources of income.

Introducing the Lifestyle Business
Mentorship Program

A step by step mentorship programing to build and grow the
lifestyle business of your dreams.

This program is for you if:

  • You want to build a lifestyle business that fits your circumstances, personality type, skillsets and interests

  • You are serious about building an internet based lifestyle business that affords you more time and location freedom

  • You want to provide value in the market place and build a long-term relationship with clients who trust you

  • You are dedicated to your success and willing to put in the time, effort and resources to build a strong business foundation

  • You know that your results will depend on your actions and how much value you offer the marketplace

This program is NOT for you if:

  • You want to build a large and complex online business like Amazon, Facebook or Google

  • You want to spend countless hours creating everything from scratch and managing a large pool of employees

  • You love to learn and sign up for many programs but never implement what you learn

  • You think it is ok to scam people and manipulate them to buy products and solutions they don’t need

  • You are expecting to get rich quick without doing any work

The Lifestyle Business Mentorship Program Is All About You and Creating a Business That Excites You and Something You Will Stick to Long Term

Because there is no such thing as one size fits all. What works for someone else might not work for you.

That is why I tailor my mentorship program around you.

Doubt and Lack of Confidence Are Very Common at First. So, You Might Be Wondering… Will This Work Even If I Have No Business Skills or Experience?

The simple answer is yes. No one is born with business experience. We all have to start somewhere. Right?

When I started in 2013, I had no business skills or business experience. I was great at my corporate job delivering creative and marketing solutions but I had no idea how to build my own business.

First I had a big vision of having my own shoe and fashion company. Then I wanted to build a complex online search engine and app.

Looking back, I now believe my ideas were so big and complex because:

  1. I was in love with the idea of having a business but was not aware of the time and effort it would take to build one
  2. I was deliberately choosing complex ideas that would be hard to implement so I can have an excuse as to why they cannot be accomplished

I only achieved the success I have now after I got clear on what I want and why I want it and focused on what I was good at already.

The market spoke to me.

First it was friends and former colleagues who reached out to me asking for marketing and design projects that I was already good at. That’s how my services business started.

Then after working with clients one on one, some people started to comment on how good I was at training and explaining concepts. I never in a million years dreamed about being an author, speaker or trainer.

When I started to think of what value I can deliver to the market place and what gaps I can fill in, my path became much easier. New clients and business opportunities started to fall into my lap.

None of my income sources have anything to do with the fashion or shoe industry that I was stuck on for years, but they opened the door to the lifestyle business setup that I now cherish and enjoy.

I want the same for you.

Here’s how I can help you:

  • Identify your goals and desired lifestyle business outcome

  • Choose the right business model and brand for you

  • Choose the right services, products and solutions you understand and will be excited about

  • Acquire and maintain more customers with automated marketing systems, custom made lead magnets and offers

  • Share my connections and resources so you can get faster and more predictable results

Limited Spots Available

Running my businesses takes time. Plus, I do travel a lot for work, fun and training.

As you can imagine, my time is limited and that is why I can only help 5 people at any given time.

To find out if I am the right mentor for you, simply fill out the form below. I will personally read all the applications and respond to tell you if I am the right fit as your mentor or if I can recommend someone else.

I recommend we start with the discovery call to narrow down your goals and desired outcome and help you choose the right mentorship program for you. Based on this call, we can decide what mentorship program will work best for you.

Next Steps

To get started fill out the application form and purchase your one hour discovery call. This one hour call will allow us to dig deep and understand your desired lifestyle business outcome.

Once payment has been made for the discovery call, we can set a time to do a Skype call and meet face to face with video conferencing. (or voice call if you prefer).

All calls are recorded and will be shared with you so you can watch or listen to them in the future.

Choose The Right Fit For You

Once we establish if I am the right mentor for your lifestyle business, you can choose one of the discounted mentorship packages. This will give you a better value in terms of cost, accountability and implementation.

IMPORTANT: My time is very limited and I can only provide mentorship for a maximum of 5 people each month. That is why, I invite you to apply first. If we are the right fit and I still have open spots, we can discuss what plan works best for you.

To your success!
