Watch this video for a preview of what to expect.

Whether you’re feeling over the advertising industry, or feel like the industry is over you — you can regain control of your life, career and self-worth. This webinar will demystify how to create a company of your own that is optimized to replace (or exceed) your advertising salary. And it’s specifically for ad peeps — taking advantage of the talents, skills, and experience your career in advertising has given you.

You'll learn how to take the same process we use to create ad campaigns, but use it to create a successful company instead.

Considering that agencies exist to help their clients drive business, its ironic that most people who work in agencies are kept in the dark about how to actually start and run a business. But it’s simpler to do and easier to succeed than you think. Much easier, in fact, than finding a good job in the industry as you get older.

How to know if this webinar is for you:


Advertising doesn’t feel as fun and rewarding as it used to — and you want to use your talents somewhere else.


You want your next move to be a big step up, but aren’t getting the opportunities you want.


You’re tired of begging for work on LinkedIn and getting ghosted by recruiters.


You've always wanted to start something of your own — but lacked confidence that it would be successful.
