How To Have More Freedom & Peace Of Mind While Making More Money By Creating A Team Of Employees That Run Your Business Like High-Level Executives

As an executive, you are working really hard to get better results and yet you feel like something isn’t being done correctly. While your business is somewhat successful, the pressure from the economy and the stress from all of your personal and professional responsibilities are causing you to feel overwhelmed, overworked, and overdrawn.

For years, you’ve been dreaming about or working on building your organization into one that gives you the financial and mental freedom to live the life you’ve dreamed about.  And for awhile now you’ve been feeling like you’re just a step or two away from breaking through…yet it seems to stay just out of reach.  Or perhaps you recently had a big business breakthrough and growth you’ve wanted for a long time, yet it’s not giving you the satisfaction and space you thought you’d get from it…

  • You feel like you work for your business, instead of feeling that it works for you.
  • You feel like you’ve strayed from why you started the business in the first place
  • There’s an underlying insecurity that you’re not qualified or prepared enough (so untrue!)
  • You feel overwhelmed and under pressure, like you’re in over your head.
  • Your teams, although made of great people, aren’t supporting you in the way you want them to.
  • Even as successful as you have are, you find yourself feeling uncertain about the direction you’re heading in.
  • You feel like something’s not being done correctly.
  • You’re tired of the casual coffees and lunches and free advice from friends and partners that are well intentioned but aren’t helping in a substantial way.
  • You’ve even been thinking about hiring a coach or SOMEONE to help you see straight with crystal clear clarity.


“I feel more and more honored that you are including me in something so fantastic.  My compliment of the day for you: You make me feel calmer, more peaceful and more confident – so far, every time I have spoken with you.” – Amy Applebaum, CEO Bootcamp for Your Mind

There’s a way that I’ve experienced this that generated millions of dollars while happily living the free lifestyle I wanted, and I want to share with YOU the joy that comes from it!

A little about my own story…

I have been obsessed for years with self-managing systems and companies, and I studied what companies such as Semco, AES, WL Gore, Patagonia, Zappos and others practiced.  In the mid-2000’s, I worked at – a $1 billion software company – where I first applied these practices.  I created a self-managing sales team that helped add $100 million in revenue.  For example, I could go on vacation in Africa for two weeks, totally out of touch, and return to find that no issues needed resolving…only that sales had grown again in my absence.  The self-managing system also made it possible for the company to promote me, because my organization didn’t need me anymore – I wasn’t trapped by my own success.  When I was promoted, I never had to look back and the team and processes kept on growing!

Before, I founded and was CEO of, a 50-person internet company.   I learned both what works in management and what doesn’t work – the hard way.  After raising $5 million in venture capital and working through it for a couple of years, we shut the business down in 2001.  As painful as it was, the experience of those years with LeaseExchange are what prepared me to be so successful at

After, I spent a year as an EIR (Entrepreneur-In-Residence) at Alloy Ventures, a $1 billion venture capital fund.  Literally my job was to figure out what I wanted to do next.  Three months into it, I spent a few weeks reflecting while traveling in Asia.  I realized that I didn’t want to start another software company, raise venture money, and likely become trapped by my own company for years.  I finally saw clearly that work is hard because we choose to make it hard – yet it doesn’t have to be! Rather than following the same old beaten career path, what I really wanted was to be able to work on what I want, when I want, with whom I want, from where I want.

At Alloy, through this same period of reflection, I found my life purpose: to help people – like you – make money through enjoyment, which means your work is fulfilling, you enjoy it every day, and you make plenty of money at it.  Work can be enjoyable, freeing and profitable at the same time…if we choose to make it so!

An Invitation To Have A Conversation

Not every executive is a good fit for this program. Are you trusting?  Do you enjoy seeing others succeed?  Are you coachable?  Are you ready to commit and act to enjoying both your work and your life? I don’t feel fulfilled by my work unless it makes a difference to YOU – and only you can make that happen.

If so, I invite you to reach out and set up a conversation with me by registering here:
