If you are anything like me, you have taken some time in the last several months to reflect on life, business, goals, and priorities. Between health scares and political unrest, it is enough to make anyone question, well, everything.

The state of our country is far from ideal, and change is certainly necessary to usher in a new age of reason and logic, from the top down.

But I am not here to rant on politics or stir anything up. I am here to share with you what I consider to be great news.

I could not be more excited to announce that I am partnering with the School For Startups to help people realize their full potential in entrepreneurship.

The School For Startups model is one that is absolutely perfect for our current climate. The approach we take is simple, entrepreneurship does not have to be full of risk, require you to be super creative, nor do you need to “follow your passion”.

These are three of the biggest barriers standing between most aspiring entrepreneurs and their dreams of building a real business. The School For Startups is designed to break down those walls and help guide you through the process of starting and growing a business.

I have been working with Jim Beach for years now at several different capacities and in fact, we launched the original School For Startups, which at the time was called The Entrepreneur School until we received a cease and desist from Entrepreneur Magazine (another story for another day).

The original launch of School For Startups was met with one hurdle after another and so we slowly closed it’s doors almost a decade ago.

Jim and I share a common belief that entrepreneurs and business owners are the game-changers, the innovators, the change-agents we need to make the world a better place. So we put our heads together and decided that there was no better time to reboot the School For Startups than now.

With unemployment numbers at an all-time high, and hope reaching all times lows, we wanted nothing more than to empower people to leave the rat race behind and build their own company. You have certainly seen the list of companies from Microsoft and GM to Uber and Airbnb that were born in recessions, and we see the opportunity to help others build their dream business as well.

So we went to work redesigning the curriculum to meet today’s fast-paced changes and have put together some amazing material that is sure to excite anyone wanting to start a business.

Our mission is to provide the required knowledge and skills to build a sustainable business to as many people as we can.

We have put together a rock-solid curriculum and have built an amazing platform for our students to access our resources, participate in online member forums, and gain the education to get their business up and running.

If you or anyone you know is interested in starting a business, I would encourage you to check out School For Startups. It is a paid membership, but we also have a ton of free resources on what I consider to be one of the best business blogs out there. We also have a free monthly newsletter full of amazing tips, tricks, guides, and resources for entrepreneurs and business owners.

With an all-new curriculum, and plenty of experience starting, scaling, and selling businesses Jim Beach and I are looking forward to serving the entrepreneurial community and helping people realize their dreams of building and growing their very own business.
