Why and How to Start a Business

90,000 HOURS is the avg. amount of time an employee works in their lifetime

Clench… clench… POP!
My morning ritual of slowly clenching my teeth until my jaw would painfully pop.
This was the routine I’d go through so I could fully close my mouth and eat breakfast every day.
I wasn’t sure what the problem was but I couldn’t live with the pain so
I scheduled an appointment with my Doctor.

My Doctor let me know that it was due to clenching and grinding my teeth
while I was sleeping. So he hooked a brother up with this sweet bite guard thing.

However, the TMJ was a symptom of a larger problem.
The cause was due to a different kind of grind that happens between 9 to 5.
Let’s get technical with some psycho babble for a minute…

“A theory that an underlying psychological tension is created when an individual’s behavior is inconsistent with his or her thoughts and beliefs.”

The real cause of my pain was due to the cognitive dissonance I was experiencing.

I understand how painful it is to be stuck at a lifeless job when you have big entrepreneurial dreams.

In 2020 I broke free and started my own business.
It’s been easily the most fulfilling time of my life.

My why is simple. I want your dream and belief that you’re meant to be an entrepreneur to align with your reality. I want to ease that pain by helping you start a business. It all starts here.

A history of painful experiences and the business lessons learned along the way.
