Tame the chaos within your business.

Building a successful trades business takes guts and a hell of a lot of hard work. Taking it to the next level demands even more than that. The Breakthrough Academy was created to help you evolve from being a doer of all things to a builder of smart systems and a leader of great people.

You started your business with a dream and a vision. After hundreds of endless workdays, rising stress levels and too much resting on your shoulders, it’s common to see your vision turn into a distant dream.

Breakthrough Academy is here to help you push through those constraints and focus on the task of making your business more efficient, profitable and yeah we’ll say it, fun.

To accomplish this, you don’t need to reinvent the wheel. We provide you with smart and innovative solutions to your biggest and smallest issues. Then we give you the consistent coaching you need along the way, and a community of peers to share the big challenges and big wins with. To be blunt, you get everything you need to be the balanced and thriving entrepreneur you want to be.

The Program

Purpose-built for your trades business.

Develop the skills and processes necessary to increase profits and improve work-life balance, all without disrupting the day-to-day running of your business.


Pull up a chair. Grab a drink.

Your community is right here. We’re like-minded entrepreneurs who love to get together and challenge ourselves. Every time we connect it’s all about sharing great ideas, good times, and crazy stories.



It’s no secret: structured systems can produce predictably reliable results. And unstructured systems can have the exact opposite effect, leading to loss of time, money, good people, and opportunities. The problem is that most contractors start off as a “team of one”, slowly adding on people and building systems based on their current needs.

And through pure relentlessness, 12+ hour days, and a fast-food diet, some of you are able to build seven to eight-figure businesses only to then find yourself being stuck in the day-to-day of running it.

If you want to learn how to structure your team and company for maximum productivity and sustainable growth, or you want to figure out how to remove yourself from operations so your company can run itself without needing you, then you’ll want to register for our next webinar.

We’ll explain the concepts you’ll need to understand and even give you the tools and templates needed to build your system and execute your plan.

No BS. All results.

We’ll just let these numbers speak for themselves.
