When I first learned about Marie and B-School, I was at a rock bottom. I was just coming off of a tour. I’d been touring with T-Pain as a professional dancer and it felt like I was living the dream. But it ended very abruptly.
I lived in a very small town called Dubuque, Iowa, not the best place to be a professional dancer. I also didn't want to go to L.A. because it scared me. But I liked dancing and wanted to continue. I just didn't know how to make money.
I was dabbling around. I was posting videos. I was very passionate and getting a little bit of traction, but wondered, "How do I make money?" At that time, I had one little product online and it was making around $500 a month. My salary at a call center was around $27,000 a year. So, I didn't have much money, but I was going all in on investing on in ads and stuff. And it just wasn't going anywhere.
I found B-School through looking at what's the best program to take my little side hustle to full time. Other entrepreneurs were all saying, "Focus on one thing. Do one thing only and go all in on that." Marie was the only one saying, “No. We're not defined by one thing. We can be passionate about a lot of different things and there's a way you can create a business and life you love. Monetize it and make a big impact in the world."
After I took B-School, I went through all the Modules and I changed absolutely everything. That was the first month I made $1,000. It scaled, and now when we launch something I’m hearing my phone go ka-ching, ka-ching. Following this course allowed me to have a full time income as a professional dancer in Dubuque, Iowa.
What's wild today, my dance business has expanded into dozens of different micro brands on fitness and dance. I also own a marketing agency and staff around 12 people, and both are seven figure companies.
My wife is now the CFO of the agency. These days we're spending time traveling to all our dream places. We just booked a trip to Hawaii next month and we're trying to travel as much as we can before we have kids. I learned my foundation of how to do everything from B-School.
