Our Story

About Ignition Year Coaching

The ignition year coaching program was developed by combining my 7 years in Special Operations within SWAT and the US Marshals: Fugitive Team – and my over 10 years as a successful entrepreneur and executive leader of multiple – multi-million dollar international companies. As the current Executive Vice President and equity owner of a global software (SaaS) company with a target valuation of over $150M, I practice what I preach on a daily basis.

Nothing to lose.|Everything to gain!

How about a FREE coaching call?

Your company’s issues and opportunities are unique, and so are the solutions to addressing them. A “one size fits all” approach found in books and conferences isn’t customized for your team and company.

Schedule a FREE 60-min coaching session and see how I can get you on the right path within an hour.

I coach my clients to always lead with value. People do business with those they like and trust. There is absolutely no obligation to move forward with coaching after your free call. However, if you like the value you received and you want me to help you quickly unify your team and dramatically scale your business, we can discuss how to apply to become a client.

My Four Foundational Principles





“It was special operations that taught me how to solve complex problems in dynamically evolving environments. Weapons and tactics aside, there are 4 foundational principles of special operations.”

Those principles kept our team sharp and cohesive. They kept us locked on to our objectives and determined our priorities of work. They empowered us to lead, as well as to follow. And when shit hit the fan, those principles are what brought our team home in one piece.

Now, I train entrepreneurs on those same principles so they can overwhelmingly dominate their “battle space”.

I’ll show you how to lead through moral authority, create a cohesive team that’s committed to the vision and core values of the company, incorporate a battle-tested structure through an organizational operating system and I’ll help your team adopt the “one team, one fight” mindset that will result in every single annual goal for the company being hit.
