Avoid the 5 Common Mistakes That Keep Calendars Full, Bank Accounts Stagnant, and Puts Your Business at Risk.

Discover the Secret Behind Healers, Coaches, and Consultants Who Have Stress-Free Financial Abundance.

  • Are you working harder in your business for the same or less money?
  • Are you frustrated, confused, or intimidated by where to get reliable and affordable answers to the legal and numbers side of your business?
  • Do you feel like you don’t know what you don’t know – especially when it comes to getting paid on time?
  • Are you benefiting from all the potential revenue streams in your business?
  • Do you wonder how others do it – own a business with enough cash flow to sleep easy at night?

You’re smart.
You work hard.
You’ve tried to crack the code around these business headaches.

But the information you find is confusing, and at times contradicts itself.

Everyone you ask has an opinion, but no one has “the answer”.

In the end you’re still frustrated, and still wondering if you’re taking the right steps to achieve your goals.

It’s not your fault.

You followed your passion.
You work hard to help others through your business.
You were told that’s what it takes to be successful.

No one mentioned the other stuff. No one mentioned the contracts, copyrights, trademarks, net profit vs. gross profit, and all those other frustrating details you have to tackle on a regular basis. No one mentioned how much time it would steal away from your passion.

And the lawyers and numbers geeks that you need don’t speak your language, don’t understand your business, and charge a lot of money.

Until now.

Crack the Code is a two day, hands on event that will transform your business headaches into more profit and more time doing what you love most.
