Gene was ready to begin his journey of entrepreneurship.
In 2001, he started an online company that generated more than $1 million in just the first year. Gene carved out a very lucrative niche for his business and positioned it as “the” choice for our target audience. Within the next few years, his company topped $5 million in sales and Gene was traveling the world.
Seeing a new opportunity, he started a second company to serve his clients and soon had two 7-figure businesses.
But, while Gene was taking his companies into new markets, scaling growth, and personally making more money than he had ever made in his life…Gene realized he was missing something.
He was missing out on living with a real purpose. He knew that he wanted to innovate within his industry and create new tools and new technologies, but was TRAPPED in his own success.
Unfortunately, Gene ignored those desires to create innovation and build a business that he truly wanted. In 2010, Gene lost it all – the business, the money – everything. In an instant, He lost a business deal and his business imploded. To the tune of losing more than $3 million in one day.
Ouch is an understatement!

Gene started working with founders, CEOs, and entrepreneurial leaders to generate growth in their business. He studied everything there was to study about how to overcome stagnation, tap into sustainable growth, and empower leadership to achieve more.
This potential career-ending setback, began a new journey in his life with a mission to partner with business leaders to help them unlock the growth potentials they may not know exist.
