Bold CEOs | Boot Camp (Cohort #2105)
Who is a Bold CEO?
Start-ups, Entrepreneurs, Agents, Advisors, Networkers, and Self-Employed
Most business owners are pumped full of excitement when they launch out on their own, innovate or improve a new idea, and get to work on their own dream vs. someone else’s. However, most small businesses never truly become businesses, but instead, fall into a rut known as Self-Employment. When we open a “Business” we are deciding to participate in the profits (and, often losses) instead of being an “Employee” where the business owner takes the risk and earns the reward.
However, it’s typically not very long after that we figure out that there is a lot more to this business thing than meets the eye. We end up being the HR, sales, marketing, maintenance, customer service, and accounting department, just to name a few. We have the worst boss that expects us to work all of the time and all the stress that goes with it. At the end of the day, we have little time left to focus on why we started the business in the first place often relentlessly sacrificing the quality of life and the very freedom we set out to create.
Others fall prey to the litany of legal, accounting, HR, and growth issues that pop up out of nowhere, though most of these issues can be prevented had you known they were coming or knew how to structure and plan accordingly. And, when monumental challenges arise, which they will, most aren’t prepared, which often results in business failure and massive stress.
What is Bold CEOs Boot Camp?
Bold CEOs Boot Camp is for any business which wants to make sure the basic building blocks, mindsets, systems, and processes are in place to illuminate the blind spots, dark corners, and eliminate surprises to provide optimal conditions for the business to grow. Ultimately, your business will create an income, lifestyle, and freedom you likely sought out in the first place. If you’ve already started your business, you’ll double check everything, plot out a better course, and finally have a shot at massive business success.
Requirements: Bold CEOs Boot Camp isn’t for everyone and has qualification requirements including being coachable, attendance, and doing the work. Sales Volume, number of employees, and brick and mortar are not required to participate. Future business builders, independent contractors, professionals, agents, advisors, franchisees, and network marketers are welcome provided they are attempting to grow a business.
Participation requires commitment, confidentiality (including signed Non-disclosure agreements), and a willingness to both give and receive advice and ideas. Members will support each other with honesty, respect, and accountability. Members’ names, business names, and any conversations are kept strictly confidential. We are catalysts for growth, devil’s advocates, and supportive colleagues.

“Working with Michael has been one of the best decisions I’ve made in my business! In creative fields, it’s easy to direct all your attention to incoming work and daily tasks. Michael has shifted my perspective and empowered me to look beyond the next five years.
Every time we talk, I walk away with the clarity and actionable steps I need to fill in the gaps. With all his leadership, business, and marketing experience, he’s absolutely indispensable! Our weekly meetings hold me accountable both to my business and the life I want to lead.
I highly recommend Michael to any business owner wanting to build strong foundations and systems for growth. He takes all the guesswork out and my studio has flourished since we started working together!
