It started over one of our favorite activities, smoking cigars. Judge and I fired up the Davidoff “pigs” at our local cigar shop and started talking business, (our second favorite activity), and we came to the same conclusion within minutes. We were sick and tired of fake gurus on social media telling everyone to become an entrepreneur to find their freedom. We have built and sold 9-figure companies and lived the “entrepreneur” life. It was hard as hell. It was worth it, but it was hard. Freedom took a long time for us to find after countless hours away from our families, and struggling to scale revenues and profits. We started at the bottom and have finished close to the top. We both shared the opinion that 99% of business gurus on social media are full of shit. They have not made their money building real businesses. We have.

It became clear to us, entrepreneurs need a roadmap. Through the Davidoff aroma, we started to outline the step by step process of how we built our companies. We ended up with a fully outlined proven roadmap that produced our own business success that could be shared with entrepreneurs everywhere in every business.

We just didn’t know what to do with our outline, so we fired up another cigar and built out a business. We called it Burn The Ships and we loved the sound of it and committed to partner on it. 

Our first event was (and still is) our Burn The Ships Business Bootcamp. A 1 ½ day event in our hometown of Dallas, TX, in which 25 likeminded business owners come to us and get schooled, by us, on how we did it. How we built real businesses that centered on company culture and core values and competitive analysis and profits and speed. Our first event sold out in 2 weeks and continue to this day to be amazing events that are changing the lives of our attendees.

Our content helps entrepreneurs become CEO’s, and CEO’s to get liquid. We teach the language of business in a way that only we can do it. Tough, frank, honest, passionate and proven.
"Burn the Ships"
Bill Gates had it wrong when he said, “Most people over estimate what they can do in 12 months and under estimate what they can do in 10 years.” We think it is the exact opposite. We think you UNDERESTIMATE what you can do in 12 MONTHS and OVERESTIMATE what you can do in 10 years.”

Why? Because 99% of business owners don’t have a clear roadmap for the next 12 months. They are confused. They focus on everything instead of focusing on only what really matters. When you lock down your key metrics and action steps in the short term, the long term goals automatically happen.

At Burn the Ships Business Bootcamp, we force you to build out your 12 month roadmap.

Your next 12 months will determine your success or failure. That is what we do at Burn the Ships Business Bootcamp. We create, review and hold you accountable to the actions that maximize your focus for the next 12 months.

Stop Bullshitting Yourself
We get what you're going through…
We were you. Judge and I were on the hamster wheel too. Our businesses forced us to have sleepless nights, to miss date nights with our wives and our children’s plays and games. We were caught in the current of the urgent everyday. Not for days or weeks, but for years. Our entrepreneurial dreams were more like a day after day nightmare.

Until we reached a breaking point. We couldn’t see ourselves living like this anymore. We couldn’t let our jacked up business steal another day of happiness from ourselves and our families. So we pulled ourselves up by our bootstraps, tapped into our courage and did the unthinkable, we “burned the ships.” 

We burned our companies to the ground and rebuilt them the way they should have been built in the first place.

This single decision, to burn the ships, changed our lives forever.
In 4 simple steps, here is how we did it...
  • We focused on the short term and stopped dreaming about the long term. We built out radical short term goals, and one by one we attacked and conquered them daily.
  • We opened up lines of communication with EVERYONE within our companies on a daily basis. The side bar conversations, the shit talking employees were weeded out, and everyone became laser focused on our daily objectives and goals.
  • We were relentless in living, breathing and managing to our core values. Every activity centered around our core values and our company cultures become real…FAST!
  • ​We became 100% customer centric. Our clients finally understood how doing business with us benefited them. Our relentless focus on the needs and benefits to our clients allowed our teams to get laser focused on delivering value each and every day. Our client retention went through the roof and so did our revenues and profits.
​The end results were incredible. For Matt, his company went from $36 million to $100 million in just 18 months. For Judge, he enjoyed an 8 figure exit, followed by a 9 figure exit.

The same results are possible for you. It’s time to pull the trigger and sign up for Burn the Ships Business Bootcamp.
It's Time to Remove Your Plan B
In business, the term “Burn the Ships” means different things to different people. For some it means, burn your business to the ground and rebuild it. Judge and Matt know that feeling, because both have had to start over...from scratch. But to us, “burn the ships” means, remove your plan B. No more starting and stopping. It’s time to get your business to the next level…NOW!

The reality is that you have been playing too safe and too small. Your business is, sorry to say, too small. Your revenue needs to grow, so do your profits, and so does your impact. The impact you can have on your client’s families, your employee’s families and of course your own family. All of them deserve more from your business. They, and you, have had the pain side of your small business, and are all waiting for the pleasure side that you promised them. You thought a great business would happen over time, or through motivation or through positive thinking. We believe that all of these are important, but the guarantee of a successful business does not lie within any of them. The guarantee of a successful business lies within the roadmap. That is what you are missing. A crystal-clear roadmap to success in your business and eventually your life. That is what “burn the ships” is about. It is about helping you create your own roadmap to building an 8-9 figure business that enjoys tremendous profits, operates with minimal chaos, provides the freedom to be away from it, and can be sold at any time. That is the roadmap that Judge, and Matt have built for themselves, and are now teaching you.

You may have a good business; we think it can be better. You may have success, but we think you can more of it. You may have some freedom, but we know you can have more of it. It’s time to go to the next level. It’s time to “burn the ships”.

Don’t believe the hype on social media. Your roadmap to success doesn’t require more #grind or more #hustle, much simpler than that. It requires you to focus on your next 12 months. If you follow our plan, the next 12 months will be the most impactful of your career.
