Our Enlightened Business Leader Program dramatically improves your business results and life as it has done for entrepreneurs around the world for over 20 years. We created it intentionally so you can do work that matters, for people who care.


Be a Force for Good

I bet you’re somebody with an amazing business idea, service, product or coaching program! With a deep desire to help others and make an impact that brings positive change to the world. You might even aspire to being seen by others as a thought leader or person of influence in your space.

But, if your presence is near invisible and your marketing isn’t keeping your pipeline full with hungry prospects and happy clients, it’s likely because you haven’t been able to rise above the noise online.

Stop the Insanity

Tired of hearing crickets in response to your offers? Feeling sad watching everyone else crushing it online and thinking Dammit … Why not me?

Like most struggling business owners out there, I bet you’re fed up with:

  • working your butt off doing everything the “poo-rus” told you to do, but still feeling invisible online,
  • being in massive debt buying courses and masterminds with little-to-no revenue to show for it, and
  • risking burnout or your relationship with a significant other (or both) trying to make it all work!

You may even feel close to giving up on your dream! Or, if your business is a side hustle, fear you’ll have to keep a day job forever. You are not alone! And this does not have to be your story!

Make Competition Irrelevant

Whether you’re a high-level expert, thought leader or influencer, it’s not about lead generation anymore … it’s about DEMAND GENERATION.

And it’s critically important to your success to establish and maintain the right presence online to control audience perception and protect your positioning.

SMARTSTART helps you be outstanding in every way so you can build your dream business and master modern marketing without wasting money, while you rise to the top and make competition irrelevant.

Once you learn how to use this powerful, simple methodology to make the right business and marketing decisions for you, it becomes so much easier to #loveyourwork, #sellmorestuff and #keepmoremoney!

Rethink What’s Possible

SMARTSTART completely changes how you THINK about your business. And shows you exactly how to create more effective marketing to help you realize your full potential, experience independence, and become a visionary leader.

Whatever you choose to create and sell, with SMARTSTART you’ll know how to get the results you want, but don’t have and change the results you have, but don’t want.



Over 264,000 entrepreneurs know the difference SMARTSTART makes!

Build Your Dream

SMARTSTART is NOT a one-size-fits-all solution. It’s a recursive methodology that changes how you think about your business. Our custom-tailored program and support is based on your current skills, experience and abilities. We start where you are and go as far as you want to go. And your results get better and better, each time you use it.

Lead with Confidence

There’s no following the crowd or falling for the latest useless trends in SMARTSTART. You focus work on core essentials. Implement as you learn. And all of your critical business decision making is backed by science.

Profit from Partnership

You won’t be working alone or with contractors. Our very own smartstartcoach — the guiding force behind some of the most awe-inspiring business success stories ever written — is with you every step of the way.

Every day there’s a new training, free guide, or something else to look into with the next best thing. Most contain stale or useless advice. And many are filled with … Really. BAD. Advice. But, sadly, it’s almost impossible for you to know that.

Until you’ve wasted many months and 10s of 1,000s of dollars getting nowhere with it. 🙁

Faux experts are a contagion. That’s why, in 2000 (yes, 22 years ago now!), I created SMARTSTART!

You want a proven path to business success … am I right?  You need to be seen, heard, and found online … yes?

You want to know the joy of putting your best work out into the world and making a lasting difference for others, and be respected by your clients as the professional (and possibly even the thought leader or influencer) you are … do you not?

And yet you yearn for less stress, anxiety and overwhelm, pray for more and better clients, and fantasize having a lot more money left after expenses just for you to play with than you have now … true?

Want Your Prospects to Choose YOU? Choose SMARTSTART!

When you’re a high-level expert, thought leader or influencer, it’s not about lead generation anymore … it’s about DEMAND generation.

And it’s critically important to your success to establish the right presence online and control audience perception and your positioning.

With SMARTSTART you say “goodbye” guesswork and “hello” success! Our repeatable, simple methodology changes how you think about your business and go about creating your “presence” marketing.

Use SMARTSTART on your own or in combination with any other business coaching program you’ve invested in to get the best results humanly possible for your business!

SMARTSTART is specifically designed to help experts, services providers, and entrepreneurs build a remarkable reputation, recognition, and revenue online and produce effective strategic marketing to maximize cash flow.

Create just exactly what you need with expert professional guidance every step of the way. Experience more amazing results than you ever dreamed could be achieved. And all while you learn how to make competition irrelevant! ♥ ♥ ♥
