What is The Mentorship?

The Mentorship is a low-cost, high-value community helping independent marketing professionals sharpen their skills, level up their work, and create a more profitable and enjoyable business.

Does Any of This Sound Like You?

  • You're an independent (or aspiring independent) marketing professional with an unquenchable desire to level up your business and your skills.
  • You’re busy but aren't seeing the financial results that you could be.
  • You sell implementation but would like to separate strategy from execution.
  • You don't have predictable a way to generate leads and opportunities
  • You know niching is important but have a hard time doing it for yourself.
  • You want to earn more money and spend less time “doing” the client work.
  • You’re smart, curious, and a natural achiever—but you still have questions.

What If You Could...


  • Sell advice instead of only done-for-you implementation work.
  • Position yourself as a one-of-a-kind expert in your field.
  • Build a lead generation flywheel that attracts opportunities to you.
  • Systemize and productize your services to streamline your business.
  • Create leverage with one-to-many offers and digital products.
  • Produce cashflow stability with a recurrent revenue model.
  • Improve your skills as a strategic independent marketing professional.
  • Be a part of a niche community with others like you on the same path.

Who Is This For?


  • Employees who aspire to be self-employed marketing professionals.
  • Freelancers who want to level up to consultant or advisor status.
  • Agency owners who want to separate strategy vs. implementation.
  • Specialists who want to package their expertise into digital products.
  • Consultants who wants to sell advisory work and not be so "in the weeds".
  • All levels of marketers who want to improve their strategic marketing skills.

Who Is This Not For?

  • If you're just starting out in marketing, this might be over your head.
  • If you're looking to take short-cuts or get rich "quick", this definitely is not for you.
  • If you think change will be easy and you're not willing to put in the work, it won't work.
  • If you're not 100% invested in and acting on behalf of your clients' best interest, it's not for you.
  • If it's not extremely obvious how you'll get an ROI from this group, don't join. It should be obvious by now.

My Story as an Independent Marketing Professional 

If you're going to take my advice, you should know the path I took so you can see if I'm credible.

  • 2001—Started building websites for fun using static HTML and FTP.
  • 2003—Created a hobby website and forum attracting ~30,000 visitors/month.
  • 2006—Started freelancing part-time doing web design, graphics, and digital marketing.
  • 2013—Worked a corporate job doing website admin, social media, and digital marketing.
  • 2014— Started freelancing more seriously in my evenings and weekends as a side gig.
  • 2015—Started a web design and digital marketing agency full-time with a team of sub-contractors. Replaced my corporate income and generated six figures in revenue in the first year.
  • 2016—Started specializing in B2B industries instead of working with just "anyone". Earned multiple six figures in revenue this year and and every year since.
  • 2017— Began selling advisory services as a freelance CMO while still running my agency. Selling advice instead of my hands was a major turning point. Generated six figures in profit for the first time.
  • 2017—Began specializing in an industry vertical (coworking) while keeping clients in other industries.
  • 2018—Began speaking at conferences, doing workshops, started a membership program, appeared on podcasts, selling info products, and building a substantial email list.
  • 2020—COVID-19 hit us all by storm at the peak of my consulting practice. My revenue was in the multiple 5-figures/month in recurring, non-hourly advisory retainers. 
  • 2020—My business has since dropped just 25%, even with clients largely affected by COVID, proving the model is sustainable in down markets.

100% Money-Back Guarantee

If we’re not a good fit, I don’t want your money. If you’re unsatisfied for any reason after the first 30 days, I’ll refund your first payment.
