Let Me Be Your Smart Man

A smart man makes a mistake, learns from it and never makes that mistake again. A wise man finds a smart man and learns how to avoid that mistake all together. I will be your smart man.

Who I Can Help:

Feel like if you harnessed more knowledge your business would grow?
     You can.
                     It will.
                                 I can help.

Your heads wrapped up in your business, payroll, managing clients, managing employees. Marketing and advertising is the one thing that gets neglected, or is the fuzzy thing in the room that’s just not understood.

A day with me, your staff, you and an open mind will leapfrog you out of that mud-sucking hole you’re stuck in.

Look, I get it, you’ve probably tried advertising before and it didn’t work. Join the crowd. It’s not easy growing a business on advertising when you’re saying the WRONG thing. To be successful you must know the RIGHT things to say. I’ll teach you how to say the RIGHT things with real world examples of what’s worked, what hasn’t and why?

Who Is Not a Good Fit:

You walk in a room, your staff clamps up. Your mere presence strangles the creativity of those around you. You dominate every conversation and it makes you feel good. You, my friend, are a pompous ass know-it-all. We are not a good fit.

I breathe life into dreamers. Give wings to dragons that want to fly. If you’re remotely close to the person described above, nothing I can do can help. I’m serious. Please do not contact me. You are cancer rotting in the building. I want no part of that.

Sorry for the explicit description. This kind of person will never take my advice to grow their company.

What I Do For Clients:

I give you the knowledge to grow your business past the length of its own shadow.

I’ll teach you with the proven techniques of the Wizard of Ads.

I also present my own material at your business place with your business people. Material I’ve gather inside the walls of a Wizard of Ads partnership. Privileged information that I’ll give you with one hundred percent full access. I hold nothing back.

Every business is unique and I have presentations that can fill whole days with your unique situation.

Contact me and we’ll set up a time to figure out what Wizard of Ads principles will best benefit your business.

Once we know what you want me to present to your company, we’ll set up a day for me to inspire, present and motivate your team into action that will grow your business.

Success Stories:

John Orr grew his business by $130,000 in 9 months after listening to one of my seminars. He works for his Dad at Freedom Transport, a trucking company!!!

John is my kind of guy. He is courageous. If I can help a trucking company gain an additional $135,000 in 9 months, think about what I can do for you? It’s unlimited.

P.S. Contact me and I’ll send you John Orr and I’s text conversation when I asked him if I could use him as a testimonial for you!

He’ll kill me, but after growing his business by $130,000 by picking up something he learned in my seminar, here’s his #, call him personally 618-319-3456..just kidding, he said I could use his number as a reference ☺ He’s that happy!
