THREE REASONS YOU SHOULD BE HERE

[/or_column_text][or_spacing height=”40px” __name=”or_spacing”][or_column_text __name=”or_column_text”]

I often think the “about me” sections are funny because they’re almost always written in the third person even though it is generally the owner writing about themselves.

[/or_column_text][or_spacing height=”40px” __name=”or_spacing”][or_column_text __name=”or_column_text”]

So after Dennis made several attempts to sound smarter than he really is by writing about himself in the third person, he quickly abandoned that approach and decided to write this page like it was a letter to a friend.

[/or_column_text][or_spacing height=”30px” __name=”or_spacing”][or_column_text __name=”or_column_text”] Which …in many ways, it is. [/or_column_text][or_spacing height=”40px” __name=”or_spacing”][or_column_text __name=”or_column_text”]

Anyway – what do you want to know?

[/or_column_text][or_spacing height=”40px” __name=”or_spacing”][or_column_text __name=”or_column_text”] I started my first business in ’97, at 16. [/or_column_text][or_spacing height=”40px” __name=”or_spacing”][or_column_text]

I have a weird last name, it’s actually dutch though most think it’s Japanese.

[/or_column_text][or_spacing height=”40px” __name=”or_spacing”][or_column_text __name=”or_column_text”] I live in Alberta with my wife, Cayla. [/or_column_text][or_spacing height=”40px” __name=”or_spacing”][or_column_text __name=”or_column_text”]

We have two kids, two fish tanks full of fish, and a dog named Ace.

[/or_column_text][or_spacing height=”30px” __name=”or_spacing”][or_column_text __name=”or_column_text”]

But you could find that kind of stuff just looking me up on Facebook, and I’m guessing that’s not the kind of stuff you’re actually looking for.

[/or_column_text][or_spacing height=”40px” __name=”or_spacing”][or_column_text __name=”or_column_text”]

You’re really here because you are wondering; Is This Guy Worth My Time And Attention?

[/or_column_text][or_spacing height=”20px” __name=”or_spacing”][or_column_text __name=”or_column_text”] To be honest, for many readers who find themselves here, the answer is simply yes.   [/or_column_text][or_spacing height=”40px” __name=”or_spacing”][or_column_text __name=”or_column_text”] And here’s why: [/or_column_text][or_spacing height=”60px” __name=”or_spacing”][or_single_image image_size=”thumbnail” image_source=”media_library” image=”2166″ image_align=”center” __name=”or_single_image”][or_spacing height=”40px” __name=”or_spacing”][or_column_text __name=”or_column_text”]

I can help you EARN a lot more money.

[/or_column_text][or_spacing height=”40px” __name=”or_spacing”][or_column_text]

I am going to give you tools and processes and teach you how to follow them so you can EARN (there is that word again) an exceptional 7 figure Business.

[/or_column_text][or_spacing height=”40px” __name=”or_spacing”][or_column_text __name=”or_column_text”]

Here’s something I want you to consider.

[/or_column_text][or_spacing height=”40px” __name=”or_spacing”][or_column_text __name=”or_column_text”]

Once you start going down the “business building” rabbit hole, you’ll see all kinds of people telling you how to “hack”, “hustle” or “template” your business to success.

[/or_column_text][or_spacing height=”40px” __name=”or_spacing”][or_column_text __name=”or_column_text”]

In the end, most will simply brain-storm with you and then ask you what you think you should do and hold you accountable to do it.

[/or_column_text][or_spacing height=”40px” __name=”or_spacing”][or_column_text __name=”or_column_text”] Does it work? [/or_column_text][or_spacing height=”40px” __name=”or_spacing”][or_column_text __name=”or_column_text”] Yes, in the short term. [/or_column_text][or_spacing height=”40px” __name=”or_spacing”][or_column_text __name=”or_column_text”]

The reality is that it won’t build lasting results because it doesn’t equip you to build a 7 figure business, it simply holds you accountable and makes you feel good as you are spinning your wheels.

[/or_column_text][or_spacing height=”40px” __name=”or_spacing”][or_column_text __name=”or_column_text”] And that is a waste of time. [/or_column_text][or_spacing height=”40px” __name=”or_spacing”][or_column_text __name=”or_column_text”]

If you want to waste time, see a movie, It’s less expensive.

[/or_column_text][or_spacing height=”40px” __name=”or_spacing”][or_column_text __name=”or_column_text”]

Which is why I will teach you how to build your business the same way I have built mine. One tool, one process, one routine at a time. 

[/or_column_text][or_spacing height=”40px” __name=”or_spacing”][or_column_text]

And the compound effect is simply staggering. 

[/or_column_text][or_spacing height=”60px” __name=”or_spacing”][or_single_image image_size=”large” image_source=”media_library” image=”2168″ image_align=”center” __name=”or_single_image”][or_spacing height=”30px” __name=”or_spacing”][or_column_text __name=”or_column_text”]

If you’re looking for a simple way to build a business, I am your guy.

[/or_column_text][or_spacing height=”30px” __name=”or_spacing”][or_column_text __name=”or_column_text”]

HOWEVER, If you’re looking for the “easy way,” I’m not interested in working with you.

[/or_column_text][or_spacing height=”40px” __name=”or_spacing”][or_column_text __name=”or_column_text”]

It’s important you understand what I’m telling you. 

[/or_column_text][or_spacing height=”40px” __name=”or_spacing”][or_column_text __name=”or_column_text”]

 I can help you; I just won’t.

[/or_column_text][or_spacing height=”40px” __name=”or_spacing”][or_column_text __name=”or_column_text”]

 I’m capable of it, but I refuse to do it.

[/or_column_text][or_spacing height=”40px” __name=”or_spacing”][or_column_text __name=”or_column_text”]

  Why?

[/or_column_text][or_spacing height=”40px” __name=”or_spacing”][or_column_text __name=”or_column_text”]

Because when I hear someone say, “What’s the easiest way,” what I’m hearing is, “I’m not fully invested in the long term success of my own business …and am therefore not fully invested in the long term success of my customers.”

[/or_column_text][or_spacing height=”40px” __name=”or_spacing”][or_column_text __name=”or_column_text”]

 And that translates to “I don’t want to work.”

[/or_column_text][or_spacing height=”40px” __name=”or_spacing”][or_column_text __name=”or_column_text”]

 Look, building a sustainable business is HARD WORK.

[/or_column_text][or_spacing height=”40px” __name=”or_spacing”][or_column_text __name=”or_column_text”]

 Yes, when it is running the way it should it can make you tons of money, and you can decide what to do with your time.

[/or_column_text][or_spacing height=”40px” __name=”or_spacing”][or_column_text __name=”or_column_text”] But, that still takes HARD WORK to build it that way, and it still takes some work to maintain it. [/or_column_text][or_spacing height=”40px” __name=”or_spacing”][or_column_text __name=”or_column_text”]

BUT, you have to be willing to EARN it.

[/or_column_text][or_spacing height=”60px” __name=”or_spacing”][or_single_image image_size=”large” image_source=”media_library” image=”2169″ image_align=”center” __name=”or_single_image”][or_column_text __name=”or_column_text”]

You’re still here? Good.

[/or_column_text][or_spacing height=”30px” __name=”or_spacing”][or_column_text __name=”or_column_text”]

Here is what you can expect from me:   

[/or_column_text][or_spacing height=”30px” __name=”or_spacing”][or_column_text __name=”or_column_text”]

1) Actionable steps you can take to build a solid foundation for your business to allow for incredible growth. (And the tools you need to do it)

[/or_column_text][or_spacing height=”40px” __name=”or_spacing”][or_column_text]

2) A clear path to take your frustrations and challenges and use them to build an amazing business.

[/or_column_text][or_spacing height=”40px” __name=”or_spacing”][or_column_text __name=”or_column_text”]

3) Show you a simple way to look at the financials in your business and show you how to maximize your net profit. (and by “maximize”, I mean up to 20% after you pay yourself)

[/or_column_text][or_spacing height=”40px” __name=”or_spacing”][or_column_text __name=”or_column_text”]

4) How to turn day to day chaos into profitable routines. 

[/or_column_text][or_spacing height=”40px” __name=”or_spacing”][or_column_text __name=”or_column_text”]

By the way, this process still works even if you HATE routine. (Trust me, I hate it, and yet this process has worked like gang busters)

[/or_column_text][or_spacing height=”40px” __name=”or_spacing”][or_column_text __name=”or_column_text”]

  5) Most of all I will help you get through Business Puberty.

[/or_column_text][or_spacing height=”40px” __name=”or_spacing”][or_column_text __name=”or_column_text”]

Got your attention on that one.

[/or_column_text][or_spacing height=”40px” __name=”or_spacing”][or_column_text __name=”or_column_text”]

 So what the heck do I mean by”Business Puberty”???

[/or_column_text][or_spacing height=”40px” __name=”or_spacing”][or_column_text __name=”or_column_text”]

Well, it’s simple really.

[/or_column_text][or_spacing height=”40px” __name=”or_spacing”][or_column_text __name=”or_column_text”]

It is the transition from Self Employed and doing all the work, to owning a Business where you run the show, and amazing people do most of the work.

[/or_column_text][or_spacing height=”40px” __name=”or_spacing”][or_column_text __name=”or_column_text”]

(By the way, you are still “self-employed” even if you have 10 or more employees BUT the business falls apart the moment you take more than two weeks off… just saying)

[/or_column_text][or_spacing height=”40px” __name=”or_spacing”][or_column_text __name=”or_column_text”]

Don’t take my word for it, In fact, I’m happy to give you a tool to help you solve one of your business challenges for free.

[/or_column_text][or_spacing height=”40px” __name=”or_spacing”][or_column_text __name=”or_column_text”]

 Why?

[/or_column_text][or_spacing height=”40px” __name=”or_spacing”][or_column_text __name=”or_column_text”]

 Honestly, I love helping passionate people build amazing businesses, and I know there is a large pocket of businesses that would be very responsive to having this kind of opportunity, and if you find that the tool I give you valuable, you might wish to become a client.

[/or_column_text][or_spacing height=”40px” __name=”or_spacing”][or_column_text __name=”or_column_text”]

If this is the case, my fee is $2100 … Which is less than a fraction of the profit you can make with just a couple of our tools in place.  

[/or_column_text][or_spacing height=”60px” __name=”or_spacing”][or_column_text __name=”or_column_text”]

However… 

[/or_column_text][or_spacing height=”30px” __name=”or_spacing”][or_column_text __name=”or_column_text”] With that said, please understand that I am not offering you a sales pitch in disguise.  [/or_column_text][or_spacing height=”40px” __name=”or_spacing”][or_column_text __name=”or_column_text”] I promise not to pressure you or pester you in any way at all.  [/or_column_text][or_spacing height=”40px” __name=”or_spacing”][or_column_text __name=”or_column_text”] In fact, if you feel I’ve wasted even one second of your time, let me know, and I’ll immediately write you a check for $200 to compensate you for your time. [/or_column_text][or_spacing height=”40px” __name=”or_spacing”][or_column_text __name=”or_column_text”] But before we go further, you need to know that I can’t help everyone.   [/or_column_text][or_spacing height=”40px” __name=”or_spacing”][or_column_text __name=”or_column_text”] I can only be of benefit to business’s who are over $150k + per year in sales, have a strong desire to grow, with a passion for what they do.  [/or_column_text][or_spacing height=”40px” __name=”or_spacing”][or_column_text __name=”or_column_text”] Here is what to do next. [/or_column_text][or_spacing height=”40px” __name=”or_spacing”][or_column_text __name=”or_column_text”] Schedule a planning session with me by filling out the contact form.  [/or_column_text][or_spacing height=”40px” __name=”or_spacing”][or_column_text __name=”or_column_text”] I will then get back to you with some questions about your business and your goals. [/or_column_text][or_spacing height=”40px” __name=”or_spacing”][or_column_text __name=”or_column_text”] Once I have that information, I’ll do some market research for you and set up a time to go over it together.  [/or_column_text][or_spacing height=”40px” __name=”or_spacing”][or_column_text __name=”or_column_text”] I call it the “Demonstrate I Can Help You By Actually Helping You” trick.  😉 [/or_column_text][or_spacing height=”40px” __name=”or_spacing”][or_column_text __name=”or_column_text”] So really, it is a Win – Win for everyone.    [/or_column_text][or_spacing height=”40px” __name=”or_spacing”][or_column_text __name=”or_column_text”]

 You win by getting a fantastic tool and knowledge on how to push your business forward, (Even if you don’t continue to work with me).

[/or_column_text][or_spacing height=”40px” __name=”or_spacing”][or_column_text __name=”or_column_text”] I win because I get the chance to EARN your business. [/or_column_text][or_spacing height=”40px” __name=”or_spacing”][or_column_text __name=”or_column_text”]

And a third win,  If you decide to work with me, we both win again. 

[/or_column_text][or_spacing height=”40px” __name=”or_spacing”][or_column_text __name=”or_column_text”]

As we both get to see your business grow even faster.
