In 2015 Darren Ewart and Mike Dreher were on a road trip and doing some reflecting – they agreed that it was time for a change in their lives. At this point, Darren was already a huge success in the online business world – having generated millions of dollars over the past nine years. Mike was a business coach – using his over 15 years of business experience and training to help others succeed. So why was it time for a change?
Life is short – if you haven’t figured this out yet then you will soon. At the same time you’ll probably realize that you’ve also wasted away a lot of time just being busy with life. That you’ve missed out on a lot of important things. This is what hit Darren and Mike like a ton of bricks.
Mike and Darren realized that they were working a lot of long hours and making a lot of other people really rich. Between the two of them, they already knew how to make money online, and they knew how to build the team to do it. So on that day, they decided that it was time for them – and their people.
Things are different now. That morning cup of coffee is enjoyed instead of rushed. Darren and Mike’s work hours are wrapped around our real lives – and they never ever miss out on those important moments anymore. Mike and Darren are working a fraction of what they were AND making more money while doing it. But the best part?
Every day they wake up excited because Darren and Mike know that they will get the chance to help other people achieve the same FREEDOM – more time – and more money to enjoy that time with! Life is better when you share it, and every day they get to help their community get back to the important things in life; building memories with friends & family.
How did you get started in this business?
Mike is a Business Coach and I was already doing Online Marketing so we decided to combine our skills and help others get into the online space.
How do you make money?
We make money by offering a product mix of high ticket and low ticket items – some being one-off sales and others being subscription-based. This allows us to have a diverse portfolio and stabilize our income stream.
How long did it take for you to become profitable?
We were profitable within our first year of business, even after investing a lot back into it.
When you were starting out, was there ever a time you doubted it would work? If so, how did you handle that?
I never had those doubts. To be honest, I wasn’t in a great place financially when we started this particular business. It HAD to work. There was no plan B.
How did you get your first customer?
Through a paid advertisement on Facebook.
What is one marketing strategy (other than referrals) that you’re using that works really well to generate new business?
We are definitely fans of paid Social Media advertising. You have to create captivating ad campaigns that stop people from scrolling on by. You only have a second or two to catch their attention in today’s busy world.
What is the toughest decision you’ve had to make in the last few months?
We decided to launch two new products in our business in the same month (April 2022). It was a VERY busy few weeks.
What do you think it is that makes you successful?
I think it’s my mindset. I never let fear, challenges or self doubt steer me off course.
What has been your most satisfying moment in business?
When my husband and business partner paid off our mortgage. We were both 41 years old and because of our business we were able to do something in 3 years that took our parents 30 years to do.
What does the future hold for your business? What are you most excited about?
As I mentioned earlier, we just introduced 2 new products which are also 2 new income streams in our business model. It’s already been a year of extreme growth and it’s not stopping. I’m most excited for the new people joining our program now because there’s so many more options for them to get started with their online business that we never had before. Literally something for everybody no matter where you reside in the World.
