Build A Standout Business Without Wasting Money

WHAT will you tell your grandchildren when they ask, “What did you do in the greatest financial boom of the 21st century?”

Will you tell them you worked for someone else for the sake of collecting a steady salary? That you had a dream, but were too lazy to apply for help through our SMARTSTART Philanthropy Program? Or, will you describe the business empire you created by daring to follow your dreams?


Discover the SMARTSTART difference!

Discover Your Genius

You are unique. And so are we. SMARTSTART is not a one-size-fits-all solution. Custom-tailored programs based on your current skills, experience, and abilities fill any gaps between where you are and where you want to take your business next.

Lead with Confidence

You won’t be following the crowd or falling for the latest popular trends in SMARTSTART. All of your critical decision making is backed by science.

Profit from Partnership

You won’t be working on your business alone. Our very own smartstartcoach — the guiding force behind some of the most awe-inspiring business success stories ever told online and offline — works right along with you throughout the program.


Build Your Dream

Why play safe when you can play powerful? You wouldn’t have a vision if you didn’t also have the corresponding gifts, talents and strengths to get your dreams done.

Discover Your Genius and use it to choose strategies that support your dreams and business objectives while making the most of your unique gifts, talents, and strengths.

No recent lottery win or trust fund to draw on for building your business dream? Get expert assistance and subsidized support through SMARTSTART’s Philanthropy Program (if you qualify and are selected for sponsorship). We invest in extraordinary entrepreneurs and experts with high potential.


Grow Without Limits

Use your genius to release the untapped potential hiding in each one of the 12 areas of strategic focus all business owners must master to build a successful business.

Get better results at the speed and in the way that’s best for you as you work on getting the results you want, but don’t have and changing the results you have, but don’t want.
