Leaving the business community better than I found it.
The Business Success Movement is first a movement trying to kill status quo and mediocrity in business. The website is an online business magazine or publication. Beyond this, we are creating a community through social groups, and mastermind accountability groups.
Second, The Business Success Movement is a business education platform and a supportive business community (free facebook group and private mastermind accountability groups) that is passionate about building more success into the business community by simplifying business and creating innovative entrepreneurs. Our goals are focused on helping entrepreneurs to…
- build systematized business models
- building and becoming strong leaders
- helping owners build exit strategies and succession planning
- inspire owners to build philanthropy into their business so they can leverage their profitability and success to give back and change the world
One of My Favorite Quotes About Business by Steve Jobs
Here’s to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes… the ones who see things differently — they’re not fond of rules… You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can’t do is ignore them because they change things… they push the human race forward, and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do.
Business can be very complicated. We try to simplify things to 6 areas that ALL businesses must master to reach true success. To build on this concept we broken the website into these 6 areas. The areas ALL small businesses must master are these 6 areas… Strategy, Mindset, Sales, Marketing, Operations, and Finance.

WHY do I do this?
To challenge people to become innovative leaders, so that we can change the world together.
I have over 25-years in the Marketing and Design industry. For over 19 years, I have been a business owner. My business is a growth firm, called Brandwise, that specializes in business development through sales training and online lead generation programs. Education is a passion of mine and I have been in the education space for over 5 years. The “business misfit” title resonates with me because I hate status quo and often think different, act different and look different than business as usual. I love calling CEOs and business owners on their bullshit (respectfully of course) and challenging them to become better leaders.
9 out of 10 businesses fail, and just in the US alone, there are 26 million registered businesses, so the failure numbers are HUGE. I am passionate about changing that. The Business Success Movement is my way to build a movement of people, that like me, think this failure rate is way too high and we need to do something about it. The actual failure rate is 96% in the first 10 years. This movement is to focus on getting people to the top 4% success rate and growing this too well over 10%. To do this we need you to join the movement.
On a personal note, I love the outdoors, hiking, skiing, mountain biking. I am a total music junkie for any music that has heart and soul (top-40’s not really my thing). Vinyl and physical music are my passion instead of digital music. I was brought up on skateboarding, punk rock, and questioning authority. If you are close to me, you know I cuss like a sailor. I try to be knowledgeable and involved in politics. I love reading, self-development, and financial education. A fan of hot rods, and rat rods, but I own an electric car and this speaks to the extremes I live in my life. I love being a dad, have a great son and an amazing wife. Family is very important to me.
As a social activist, I fight for things like the environment, ending poverty, supporting live music and the arts, supporting and killing the stigma associated with mental health, ending racism, and finding ways to bring positivity and kindness to the world. I am also a big proponent of reading, literacy, and education even though, to be honest, I hated all of this stuff as a kid in my school days. I now challenge business people to read an hour a day or a book a month. I also help teach reading at underperforming schools to give kids a leg up in this world.
One of the most influential books in my world today is… the Tao Te Ching.

Hear What The Business Success Movement Members Think of The Facebook Group
The Facebook Group is a free business group focused on business networking, education, and ongoing support to continue to help business owners grow personally and grow their business.
The Business Success Movement Facebook Group has helped me become more confident. I learned how to do Facebook Live videos, am using them, and seeing these videos getting the best results in all of my marketing. Plus these people are so supportive and encouraging. It’s one of my favorite go-to groups on Facebook.
The best part about being a member of the Business Success Movement Facebook group, for me, is a feeling of not being alone as a business owner. Communicating with others that are dealing with challenges is both comforting and brings great opportunities to help each other to grow.
