Real World Results

Say No to Conflicting Systems and Inconsistent Advice

You’re awesome at what you do – there’s no doubt about that.

The problem comes in trying to piece together everything else – networking, selling, pricing, packaging, social media, and differentiation – basically all the strategies you need to get customers who recognize your value and are willing to pay you what you’re worth.

Everywhere you look, you find contradictory advice. One “expert” after another telling you that this is the ONE THING you need to explode your business, the silver bullet that will magically make it a success. You’re left trying to figure out which programs to buy, how to piece them together, what to do, and what order to do it in.

It’s overwhelming. It’s exhausting. It’s expensive. And it doesn’t work.

You need a step-by-step system encompassing EVERYTHING required to grow your business – FAST.

You need a complete blueprint for Rapid Growth.

What if you could leave behind all those piecemeal systems forever and enact one straightforward, step-by-step strategy guaranteed to make your business a success?

What If You Could...

Craft Your Unified Message

Do you feel people don’t understand the value of what you provide? Feel like you’re always shoving your services down people’s throats, trying to convince them why it’s worth paying more? With your new and differentiated message, prospects will be excited and intrigued by what you offer. You’ll be met with genuine interest, and you’ll finally be able to explain your awesomeness – because they asked.

Discover Your Niche of Willing-to-Buy Clients

Step away from the unprofitable “speaking-to-everyone” approach and discover your niche of willing-to-buy customers – people who are actively looking for what you provide and who see you as the only logical choice. Your competition becomes irrelevant and you can start charging what you’re worth.

Create Packages That Sell

Put an end to lengthy, time-consuming proposals that your prospects won’t read anyway, and say goodbye to a pricing structure that results in endless nitpicking. Instead, design simple, compelling packages and pricing models that make it easy for customers to move forward.

Highlight Your Value

Tired of prospects simply comparing your features and benefits to everyone else, putting you in a price war where nobody wins? Discover the secret to instantly setting yourself apart, leading prospects to see you as the ONLY person they trust to deliver.

Become a Power Networker

Say goodbye to the awkward and unsuccessful networking events of the past; soon you’ll know exactly what to say and when to say it. Gain the confidence of knowing that no matter who you’re speaking to or what you’re discussing, you’ll be able to embed your awesomeness and get out of the commodity box.

Sell Without "Selling"

No more feeling like a sleazy salesperson, no more awkward silence while you wait for the prospect to say “yes,” no more time-consuming proposals, and no more pointless follow-up. Discover the process that’s turned even the quietest introverts into master salespeople – a step-by-step strategy that naturally progresses to the sale, no hard closing (actually, no “closing” at all) required.

Make Them Chase You

You’ve heard it before: "Get your business online, and customers will drop from the sky...This or that new marketing technique will get clients beating down your door." Here’s the truth: There is no magic trick that gives you the long-term results you’re looking for. I’ll show you a step-by-step system that combines psychology, technology, and strategy to get your ideal clients to chase YOU. And the best part? It’s all automated. You won’t spend a single dollar on ads.

Skip the flash-in-the-pan “magic formulas,” silver bullets, and get-rich-quick schemes. Say goodbye to stitching together contradictory information from dozens of resources. Stop the constant search for “what’s next” and finally wrap your arms around a complete system for Rapid Growth.

Real World Results

This is How it Works

Every week for nine weeks, you’ll get four video lessons. No boring slideshows, no talking heads – me, on camera, showing you how to implement my proven strategies in your own unique business.

Each video has one core focus and one accompanying action item. You do the work, you’ll get the results, it’s as simple as that. Every element has been tried, tested, and proven to deliver – over 3500 service provider businesses and counting.

Module One: Sharpening Your Axe

You may have heard the saying, “Give me six hours to chop down a tree, and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe.” Yet most business owners start chopping with no preparation, and just keep on hacking away. By completion of Module One, your axe will be razor sharp, and from then on, everything gets easier.

Class One: Passion and Focus

For most people, the #1 reason for lack of success is that they unknowingly get in their own way. This session is dedicated to getting you out of the trap of scattershot or conflicting goals, getting you aligned with your passion, and putting the fire back in your belly.

Class Two: Crafting Your Message and Discovering Your Niche

Craft your unique and unified message – one that excites clients and inspires them to want to know more. Discover your niche of motivated, willing-to-buy customers, and put an end to competing on price, once and for all.

Class Three: Packaging, Pricing, and Stories

Create packaging and pricing that makes it easy for prospects to say YES. Develop powerful client success stories and learn how to articulate them in a targeted way – a way that instantly puts you above the competition and positions you as the only logical choice.

Module Two: Your Offline System

Your chances of success are greatly diminished when you hide behind your laptop; it’s time to get out there and master real-world sales if you want a business that truly flourishes. There’s nothing like the liberation and confidence of knowing you can easily turn prospects into customers – at networking events, over the phone, and in face-to-face meetings. Plus, you don’t want to make the mistake of spending countless hours on social media, email, and your website until you know – without a doubt – that your message, stories, packaging, and pricing actually motivate your ideal niche to buy. Who knows? Like many RGA students, you might even enjoy sales once you see the results!

Class Four: Become a Power Communicator

Discover how to seamlessly and naturally weave your unified message and client stories into any networking discussion, client phone call, or podcast interview to truly amaze your listeners and prove just how awesome you are.

Class Five: Master the Authentic Sale

Learn the secrets of my unique sales system, one that works to turn even the most introverted service providers into master salespeople. Transcend uncomfortable hardcore sales tactics and discover the step-by-step strategy that naturally progresses to the sale. Prospects will see you as a trusted consultant, not a pushy salesperson, because they’ll know you’re the only provider who can deliver the outcomes they want.

Module 3: Your Online Machine

Here’s where we take everything you’ve validated and perfected in the real world and move it all online. I’ll show you how easy it is to use technology, psychology, and strategy to point a virtual megaphone at your ideal niche of clients. Learn the exact systems I used to go from knowing ZERO about running an online business to generating six-figures in six months. Best of all, it’s completely automated. Set it, forget it, and watch the clients roll in.

Class Six: Fuel Your Engine

There’s much more to a successful website than high traffic numbers. Don’t bother trying to increase traffic until you know the real goal of a website; you’ll just be pouring water into a leaky bucket. In this session, you’ll learn what a website is really for, put an end to losing interested people just because they aren’t quite ready to buy, and turn your site into a profit machine.

Class Seven: Create and Automate Your Celebrity

To be successful online – to be seen as an authority – you need to create heaps of content, right? WRONG. In this session, I’ll show you how I leveraged just a little bit of content – producing nothing new for 18 months – to achieve rock solid credibility and an ever-growing stream of customers.

Class Eight: Get Your Ideal Clients to Chase You

Say goodbye to the stress and uncertainty of hustling to find clients. This session shows you how to automate prospecting and engagement and get your ideal clients to actually chase YOU. No ad spend, no “next hot marketing thing.” Just a proven system that continually delivers new and excited prospects to your inbox.

Class Nine: Driving Higher PRices

Here’s where you learn the key to unlocking even higher prices. Discover how to leverage the power of momentum and success to stimulate excitement, ever-increasing fees, and killer closure rates.

Tech: Step-by-Step Training

Every week for nine weeks, you’ll get four video lessons. No boring slideshows, no talking heads – me, on camera, showing you how to implement my proven strategies in your own unique business.

Each video has one core focus and one accompanying action item. You do the work, you’ll get the results, it’s as simple as that. Every element has been tried, tested, and proven to deliver – over 3500 service provider businesses and counting.


Too many programs provide limited-time access, expecting you to complete it all on their time frame and remember everything on your own, forever.

Not so with Rapid Growth Academy. While it’s ideal to complete the program in nine weeks so you can keep the momentum going and get results fast, if you need more time, you’ve got it.

If you’re like most students, though, you’ll find that within three weeks, you’re saving far more time than you’re spending, not to mention seeing ROI. Many students have made back their entire Academy investment in just the first few weeks!

The bottom line is, when you join Rapid Growth Academy, you’re a student for life.
Complete the program in your time frame, knowing that every lesson and every bonus is yours to keep forever.

Valuable Bonuses That Ensure Your Success

You’re probably used to program “bonuses” that turn out to be half-baked afterthoughts with no real usefulness.

Trust me when I tell you that my Academy bonuses ALONE are worth as much – if not more – than the course itself. Skeptical? Read on.

I'm Here For You

Want input directly from me? I’ve got your back.

Yes, you are reading that correctly – the personalized advice I charge thousands of dollars for is available to you for FREE – for LIFE  

Most online programs offer training and nothing more. You go through the material by yourself, and if you need support or have questions about how the lessons apply in your unique situation, you can (maybe) email a customer service rep.

I wanted something completely different for Rapid Growth Academy. I wanted you to have direct access to me.

In addition to being personally involved in the RGA community on a daily basis, I also hold a live stream Q&A for all members, at 4:00 pm CST every Tuesday.* In these live streams, I answer your questions and provide feedback on your action items.

In fact, a few weeks ago, I rebranded three service providers right there on the spot, giving them a unified message that calls out loud and clear to their ideal clients. I’ve also redesigned students’ pricing, packages, stories, and email campaigns, live on the call. I don’t hold back.

  • I personally review your work and offer tailored feedback
  • Live streams last as long as it takes to answer your questions
  • Bring any question, concern, problem – or win – to share
  • I’m in your corner, as committed to the success of your business as you are

*Can’t make the live stream?
Don’t worry. While it’s best to be there live, every session is recorded. So if you can’t make it, just post your questions in the group beforehand and watch the recording later.

This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity you won’t find anywhere else. It’s a weekly shot of adrenaline to keep you focused, motivated, and charging forward on your path to Rapid Growth.

Your Rapid Growth Family

I can’t overstate the true value of this bonus.

One of the hardest things about being in business for yourself is the isolation – the feeling that you’re going at it totally alone.

Let’s put an end to that by getting you on a team of brave, ambitious service providers, as serious about building their businesses as you are.

Some have already been through the program and achieved their dream business. Some, like you, are just beginning the course.

All are motivated, determined, and supportive.

This is not just a social group, though many friendships have been forged. It’s a community of likeminded service providers offering support, encouragement, and honest feedback. And my team and I are heavily involved in the group as well, answering questions and giving personalized advice every day.

Take advantage of the collective talent in this group to:

  • Leverage the knowledge of Academy students who have been where you are, have now achieved success, and want to give back
  • Find answers – fast – and get unstuck from any problem or concern
  • Get instant feedback on your unified message, pricing, packaging, anything and everything!
  • Partner with other members for opportunities like podcast appearances, speaking events, and media publications
  • Maintain the momentum and motivation to accomplish your dreams
  • Know that you have a supportive community for life, to cheer you on and keep you accountable

Whatever problem you’re facing, whatever question you have – someone in the group has been there.

You’ll get unconditional support from people who truly understand the journey you’re on, who want to help, and who are excited to share your success.

Fast-Track Your Competency

Are you tired of those programs that tell you what to do in theory, but show zero evidence of successful application in the real world? Here’s yet another way Rapid Growth Academy is different.

Over the course of 14 months, I flew my past clients in from all over the world for recorded sit-down interviews discussing their implementation from every element of my program – and the results.

They share what worked for them, what they struggled with, what barriers they hit, how they overcame them, and what they learned along the way. Over seven hours of real-world experience and evidence to help you in your own Rapid Growth journey.

These case studies are not only jam packed full of additional value, they’re also motivation superchargers. You’ll see yourself and your business in these people, and know that success is possible for you too. All included with your lifetime access at no additional cost.

I'm Not Done Yet

Even More Bonuses, Worth Over $5000

Mindset Reboot

To obtain success, it’s essential that you believe it’s possible. Banish your limiting beliefs and those negative voices in your head saying that you can’t do it. You CAN. If you’re struggling to muster the confidence you need to succeed, this session gets you back in the driver’s seat of your business and your life.

Customizable Templates

You get my entire archive of templates:

  • My story-creation template, ensuring that each client story you tell is laser sharp and jam-packed with embedded value
  • My story-to-keynote formula, turning three of your powerful stories into a focused presentation. This strategy alone nets me well over $100,000 a year, on top of speaker fees, and requires no sales AT ALL
  • The easy ask that lands you big-name publications, top-rated podcast appearances, and even TV interviews
  • My foolproof networking script that transforms you into a rainmaker, while keeping you authentic
  • The 12-part email series that drove my business to six figures in six months, starting with no list at all
  • The secrets to social media posts that bring interaction and intrigue – and drive readers by the thousands directly to you

Each template is easily customizable to your unique business. Simply replace the highlighted sections with your own stories, unified message, and points of difference, and watch the clients roll in

Direct access to me for LIFE? Really?

At first, I was going to offer the private group and live streams free for six months, and then charge a monthly fee to continue.

But I quickly noticed something pretty incredible about our community. It’s full of amazing business owners – we’ve got a Huffington Post and Entrepreneur writer, a member of a Top-5 legal firm, the most award-winning speaker in the world, and, of course, RGA students who are now booked solid – and they all want to pay it forward, out of a desire to give back to the community that has given them so much. It’s a self-perpetuating ecosystem of Rapid Growth support, with advice, encouragement, and tools that keep everybody moving ahead. And I didn’t want that to end.

As for the weekly live streams, I absolutely love the opportunity to help business owners in a real, concrete way – to answer your specific questions and be there for you as you continue on your path, scale your business, try out new ideas, and fulfill your dreams. You’re bound to have additional questions as your business moves forward, and I don’t want you to have to pay more money for coaching. Instead, I’m offering you unlimited, ongoing access to these live streams, to keep you on track for the life of your business. Even though these sessions are worth hundreds of dollars a month, the real payoff for me is being a part of your continued success.

When you’re a student of mine, you’re a student for life. I’m here whenever you need me.

In Just Nine Weeks, This Could Be You:

Who is Rapid Growth Academy Not For?

Those Not Willing to Do the Work

If you’re expecting to just sit back, watch a few videos, and put in minimal effort, this is NOT the program for you.

This program requires nine weeks of focus, hard work, and commitment. Forever after, you’ll work far fewer hours than you are now, while enjoying the rewards of a Rapid Growth business. If you’re looking for a magic bullet get-rich-quick scheme, you’ll have to look elsewhere. This is a holistic system in which every step is necessary for long-term success.

Bad Apples

If you’re a naysayer who gets jealous when others succeed, are skeptical of new ideas, or only help others when it benefits you, this is NOT the program for you. Rapid Growth Academy is about learning and growing together, being open to trying new things, and supporting each other along the journey.

Who Is Rapid Growth Academy For?

This course is for service providers who are tired of flashy, single-solution quick fixes that neglect the big picture. If you’re ready to put in the effort to grow your business through an interactive, comprehensive, tried and proven strategy for long-term success, led by someone who genuinely cares about your future and will be with you every step of the way, Rapid Growth Academy is the answer you’ve been waiting for.

Give me nine committed weeks,
and I'll change your life.

Heard It All Before?

I get it. I know you’re frustrated with online programs that promise the world and don’t deliver. You might have already shelled out big bucks on some of these disappointments, with nothing to show in return.

Maybe you need to look under the hood a little to be convinced.

You want to see the quality for yourself.

You want to check out the real-world interviews for a boost of motivation.

You want to participate in a live stream and see if lives up to the hype.

You want to complete an action item and get feedback from me, my team, and the whole Rapid Growth community.

Well, here’s your chance. I don’t want anything to hold you back from changing your life forever.

7 Day money back guarantee

Once you experience the insights, the support, the realizations, and the laser focus Rapid Growth Academy provides, I know you’ll want to stay.

But if you’re not convinced this is the right program for you, cancellation is simple. Just send through an email or click “cancel” on your receipt within 7 days of purchase.

Frequently Asked Questions

What others have asked before saying "Let's do this" to Rapid Growth Academy

Is this program only for new businesses?

Rapid Growth Academy is for any service provider who knows they have the skill, smarts, and determination to run a successful business, and who knows they need an A-Z blueprint to make it happen. Some of our members have been lucky enough to discover the program as their businesses were just beginning, and some have been struggling for years.

What if I still have a full-time job?

If you’re looking at Rapid Growth Academy, you’re likely interested in going into business for yourself – and you know there’s nothing riskier, more expensive, or more stressful than doing it without a step-by-step plan. Sure, the program might take you a little longer than nine weeks to complete (which is totally fine, as you have access for life), but when you finally step out of your job, it will be into a Rapid Growth business, with all the foundations and strategies that bring momentum and success. So if you’re currently working full time, no problem – don’t let your J-O-B hold you back from your dreams.

What is the weekly time commitment?

Plan on spending 5-6 hours on Week 1, and 2-3 hours for each week thereafter. That includes watching the videos, completing your action items, and attending the live stream. When you do the math, it works out to less than 30 minutes a day to the business of your dreams.

And by the end of Week 3, you’ll find that the processes and systems you’ve developed save you far more time than you spend on the course.

What happens if I can’t make the live stream?

No problem – every session is recorded. If you have action items for me to review, or questions to ask, just post them in the group prior to the live stream. I’ll answer everything for you, and you can watch later at your convenience.

Can I get access to the content faster than one class per week?

Classes are released once per week over nine weeks to prevent information overload and to make sure you follow each step in order.

However, if you want to finish the program faster, you won’t be the first! As long as you’re doing all the work and are on the right track, we’ll make sure you get the content to keep moving.

What if I take longer?

Rapid Growth Academy is not about doing it fast; it’s about doing it right. This is your gateway to a new life – please don’t feel rushed to complete it. You have access to the content forever. Yes, I want you to progress as quickly as you comfortably can, so you can build that momentum and hit your goal. But I also want to make sure you get things right every step of the way. If you have a full-time job or any other competing demand that causes slower progression, no worries. The program isn’t going anywhere. So take a deep breath and let’s get started!

What if I don’t want an online business?

This is all about building your dream business – so if you don’t want an online presence, well then, you don’t need one.

Many students have achieved growth beyond their wildest expectations – going from earning a few thousand a month to $300K within a year, for example – just through the power of Modules One and Two (the first five weeks of the program).

However, there have also been plenty of people who thought they would never be interested in an online business, who now obtain far more clients online than off. So the choice is yours – but be open to surprising yourself.

What if I get stuck?

While I’ve spent over a year working on this program to make it bulletproof, you’ll likely have a question somewhere along the way that causes you to stop moving forward. This is where, in most programs, you might give up and write the whole thing off.

This is one of Rapid Growth Academy’s key differentiators. When that time comes, the community and I are here to help. We’ve been in your shoes. I’m 100% on board to share my experience and suggest strategies to move forward, whether your block is related to the course material or something else.

In the rare case where this doesn’t do the trick, every member gets one hugely discounted hour-long call with me. When the call is needed, there’s never been a time when it hasn’t moved the student beyond the block and back on their path to Rapid Growth.

Can I work with you directly?

Yes, throughout the year I take applications for my signature one-on-one intensive. But if you’re highly motivated, eager to learn, and willing to do the work, the Academy is the way to go. Many of my students initially thought they needed to work with me one-on-one, but surprised themselves with their quick success in the Academy. I know it sounds crazy to down-sell instead of encouraging you to spend thousands more – after all, I’m in business too – but I know that the Academy WORKS, and I’d never recommend paying more than you have to.

On the flip side, if you want to cut the learning curve, if you want a customized strategy and implementation plan, if you want to see results even faster, or if you just need answers NOW, my intensive one-on-one program may be a better option for you.

If you’re on the fence, I advise starting with the Academy. If you later decide that you do need one-on-one support, every dollar you spend on the Academy is 100% credited toward working with me. So you have nothing to lose, and could save thousands of dollars for the same outcome.

If you’re still interested in learning more about my one-on-one program, I’d love to discuss working with you. Click here for more information.

Do I have to be a service provider?

Yes. While the Rapid Growth System works across industries, the Academy was created specifically for service providers, to give them a simple step-by-step blueprint – a complete system with no gaps. To do this successfully, each element of the program is 100% customized to the unique issues, concerns, and goals of service providers.

But if you’re not a service provider, that doesn’t mean I can’t help you. I’ve worked with businesses of all sizes, across multiple industries, to help them achieve Rapid Growth. Click here to find out about my one-on-one program.

How does the 7-day money-back guarantee work?

Once you sign up for RGA, you’ll get instant access to the first week of the program, a week of bonus implementation videos, and access to your new RGA family on Facebook. You’ll even receive an additional bonus module four days in. Over the seven days I recommend that you:

  • Check out the quality of the training and the level of detail I go into. You’ll soon understand why it took me 14 months to create this program
  • Watch a few of the implementation videos and feel your motivation increase as you see people just like you obtain the success you want
  • Introduce yourself to the RGA family and see how welcoming and supportive they really are
  • MOST IMPORTANT – View past live streams and experience one in real time, to see just how valuable it is to have me in your corner for life

After seeing and experiencing all that, I know you’ll be 100% convinced that this program is the exact right choice for you.

And while I don’t think this will happen, if you decide at any point during your first seven days that this program isn’t the right fit, simply send an email or click “Cancel” on your receipt.

Will you ever stop offering lifetime access to the private group and live streams?

If I do decide to charge in the future, you’ll be grandfathered in, and continue your lifetime membership at no cost.

What Are You Waiting For?

The time to reap the benefits of this offer isn’t next week, next month, or next year. And it’s not “tomorrow,” a mystical place where nothing ever gets accomplished.

It's right now.

 Every day, your ideal customers are searching for the exact service only you can provide.

Each day that your business struggles means you’re one step closer to having to go back to the “safe” job you hate.

If you’re ready to launch yourself into success and create the life you’ve been dreaming of, join me for an exciting and life-changing nine weeks.

This is the stuff they don’t teach you in school, but that every service provider needs to know.

Let’s get started building your
Rapid Growth business today.

When You Add It All Up, You're Getting Serious Bang For Your Buck

(Not to toot my own horn, but you really can't put a price on lifetime access to me!)

And because I want nothing to hold you back, I've included a 7 day money-back guarantee.
