Sponsor: Brand Growth Experts

Today’s episode is brought to you by my company, Brand Growth Experts. What I want to do is read you a testimonial from one of our members in our coaching community, the Coalition.

Her name is Crystal Fieldhouse, she’s the owner of Ecology Skincare, and this is what she has to say about her membership, “I am very discerning about the educational training that I do. I need to get feedback on specifically what I’m working on. When I first joined the Coalition, I was doing everything myself. I was a solo business owner doing it all and was really overwhelmed. Austin and his team were quite a reality check for a lot of things I was doing or wanted to do. My business has doubled in my first year of membership. It hasn’t just been revenue change, it’s changed the structure and the way I think about my business. So if you’re an established eCommerce entrepreneur, I highly recommend joining. I can’t promise that your business will double in your first year, but I can promise it will change the way you think about running your business.” 

Head over to to learn more about the Coalition and fill out an application. If you’re the right fit, we’d love to have you as a member.
