"Brian helped me go from zero to a full-flown business within about six months. He is super easy to work with. He's a great teacher, he's full of knowledge and he listens. He doesn't just tell you what to do but teaches you how to do it and he tries to really understand where you're coming from and what you want to do, what's your business, and he helps you realize your dream. "

Evening workshops to help you find your way and get you started 

The hardest part is always getting started. Taking your first steps. Knowing that you're going in the right direction. To help people get started and get going on their road to success, we offer three introductory in-person workshops at our headquarters in Prague, Czech Republic.

Find & Develop

Your Idea

Find Your Vision, Purpose & Story

Create a Compelling Core Offer

Every business starts with an idea. But how do you come up with that idea? This workshop will walk you through exercises to help you find and develop your business idea so you can start to carve out a unique niche of your own.

After coming up with your idea, you need a creal vision to propel your it forward. In this workshop you'll develop your vision, find your purpose and craft your driving story that will give your idea the direction it needs.

Without a great offer, customers won't buy. In this workshop you'll learn the essential ingredients that make up a powerful offer and put them together in a way customers won't be able to resist.
