About 2X

The notion of freedom is what drives what we do at 2X.

I want each and everyone of our clients to experience freedom:

To do what you want…
When you want…
With whomever you want…

And that freedom starts with having a successful business.

At 2X, the path to freedom and scales starts with basic foundational principles.

Why the basics?

Trials and errors in my own business ventures have taught me a core truth that appears over and over and over again:

Business starts and ends with an unshakeable foundation.

And after training hundreds of entrepreneurs in multiple past businesses, I realized that…

  • The world doesn’t need another blog article.
  • The world doesn’t need another YouTube video.
  • The world doesn’t need another motivational Instagram account
    with quotes.
  • The world doesn’t need another self-guided program you’ll drop
    after a week or two.
  • The world doesn’t need MORE information…

What the world (or more specifically, your business) needs is to focus on foundational elements. What the world needs is implementation and accountability. What the world needs is intentional action that drives results.

Everything else? Well, those are just shiny objects drawing your time and attention away from what truly matters: The foundation your business stands on.

At 2X, the foundation starts with the ‘boring’ stuff.

The business details that people don’t like to talk about at parties. The hard work that you won’t see in other online programs or a spammy internet marketer selling.

We start at the base. We get really clear about your vision. We dig deep to help you create a business model, strategy, and structure that is going to help you achieve WHY you started in business in the first place.

You didn’t start your business to work
60 hours per week.

You didn’t become an entrepreneur to be concerned about
cash flow all of the time.
You didn’t set out to merely create a job for yourself.

You started your business to have freedom. Upside. Control. Income. Opportunities, flexibility, and some fun.

You started it all for your family and for yourself. And now it is time to reap the rewards for what you’ve begun.

The way to get there?

The foundation, the ‘boring’ stuff that turned into the most amazing formula for your success.

The 2X program is that proven formula.

In the program, we walk you through ten 7-Figure Factors that lead you to scale.

There is a method to what we do, and we guide you and hold you accountable every step of the way.

You are not alone in this.

And neither are we.

At 2X, our top Core Value is The Team, The Team, The Team. All of this works when each and everyone of us is acting as one unit. We are family.
