With only her innate marketing savvy and a great idea, Joy Gendusa started PostcardMania in 1998. When she started, she had no capital—her only assets a computer and a phone—yet she created a marketing team that is now an industry juggernaut.

Using postcards as the only marketing medium to grow her company in its formative years, Joy learned the 'ins and outs' of the postcard marketing industry. Through extensive testing and tracking methods, she was able to isolate the key factors that ensure postcard marketing success. She not only tells her clients to promote consistently to their target market in order to increase their overall income, but she practices what she preaches. She mails out 2 million postcards every week to her prospects and by using the principles that she has mastered, she has grown her company into a multi-million dollar corporation with more than 192 employees and recognized in 2005 by Inc Magazine as the one of the 500 fastest growing companies in the nation.

Not only did her marketing techniques enable her to boom her business rapidly, but it enabled her to empower thousands of other businesses across the nation which is exactly what she did. Today, her company creates postcard marketing campaigns spanning 350 different industries across the nation.

Kyle Gray was working as a Study Abroad advisor at the University of Utah. It was a decent job, but he had a dream I wanted to fulfill.

He had heard about people building personal brands and small businesses online. These businesses let them travel the world and work at the same time, and it was something he wanted for himself.

After spending 2 years as an advisor he knew how the university worked, and he wanted to learn about starting a business. So he took on a few student jobs and too on an interdisciplinary degree that offered flexible course options and the ability to customize it.

He used his knowledge as an advisor of the resources available to students to invite speakers to the university to build his network. He also did much of the early research and skill building for his business by leveraging the title of “Student” and calling up businesses mentioning he was a student doing research and wanted to learn more about them.

He came across the Foundry in his final year, and was connected with a group of students that all had similar goals. They were able to help each other grow their businesses, connect with the community of entrepreneurs in SLC, and work together to build their brands.

Upon graduating he had a business and was actually hired to teach at the Foundry for a few months, before he traveled to Asia and started working with another startup called WP Curve.

Travis Dillard hasn't lived out of a car, begged for money or eaten garbage scraps, In fact, he was very blessed with a supportive family and a great education. That being said…

It made it very easy to just let life pass hum by. After all, everything was “okay”.

Right?

Well, this road to mediocrity eventually led him to a dark place. He was skinny, yet fat in all the wrong places. You know, the type with frail looking legs but a soft, pudgy upper body. The guy who was too embarrassed to take his shirt off at the pool. Yep, that was him.

Given the way he looked and felt about himself, he was lost, insecure and anxious about his future.

Even worse, he was tired, out of shape, and lacked any real focus.

The Turning Point
A long story short, he made a drastic change to force himself in the right direction…he got in shape and started a business.

Travis' MISSION: HE WANTS TO SEE OTHER ENTREPRENEURS FOLLOW WHAT WORKED FOR HIM.
Was the change easy? No. Was it SIMPLE? Yes. After becoming obsessed with personal development and finding success as a entrepreneur, Travis began to see the missing link in most people’s journey to better health and a better body. He found that high achievers who recognize health as the most important resource in their business, relationships and in life do not have a problem losing the weight. They struggle to keep it off. He's spoken with hundreds of well-seasoned, financially successful business owners who are aware of the changes that need to be made, and WANT balance, but lack structure, and let their business control them.

About Ryan
Ryan Hansen came from the Marine Corps to start his own CrossFit business. His interest in fitness progressed over the years to powerlifting and eventually ending up in CrossFit. He loves the team atmosphere and for him is something reminiscent of being in the Marines.

Ryan has a need to help people, and from there it led his to want to own a Cross Fit box. He sees CrossFit as a way to truly help people in a way that will change their lives.

He puts a lot of stress on his athletes supporting their bodies with whole food, because if the body is fueled properly, it shouldn't need a lot of the extra additives. He's also very intentional with the form and physical practices of his athletes.

Harry Campbell started the Rideshareguy.com started in 2014, he was a full time aerospace engineer and part-time Uber, Lyft and Sidecar driver.  He actually discovered rideshare as a passenger back in 2012 but it wasn’t until he moved from San Diego up to Orange County that he decided to give it a try as a driver.

He started driving for Lyft and Uber in early 2014 because it sounded like a fun, flexible way to earn extra income.  Some people found it odd that he was driving in his spare time since he had a good career as an engineer but he had always been a huge fan of diversifying your income.

It’s easy to get complacent working the same job day in and day out but when you’re working for someone else, you’re never really in control of your own destiny, no matter how safe you might feel.  And that’s what he liked so much about being a rideshare driver.

You’ve probably heard the cliche radio ads that say “Be Your Own Boss” and “Set Your Own Hours” but the funny thing is that being a rideshare driver really is a lot like running your own mini-business.  And as any business owner can tell you, running a business is very rewarding but it’s also a lot of work and there are a ton of challenges that you will face.

He quickly realized that there’s actually a lot more to driving than just getting people safely from Point A to Point B.  After his first weekend of driving, he sat down at his computer and started looking for blogs, resources or online communities of rideshare drivers.  He was shocked at the lack of what he found.  There was nothing other than a few Facebook groups that had a bunch of newbies like myself asking all the same questions!

After a week or so of hopelessly searching for information, he decided to take matters into his own hands and The Rideshare Guy was born.  He knew that there were lots of drivers with the same questions he had and he figured that if he could provide an authoritative resource with good information, he would be able to help out a few of his fellow drivers.  But he had no idea just how many people needed help!

Andrew O'Brien is the founder of the media company, Patefactus. He began his career as a public speaker in 2013. He had no clue about how to run a business or how to get on media. 3 short years later, he has become the most requested speaker in his field and has traveled all over the world speaking. He have made well over 6 figures, on his way to 7. This is all thanks to his media exposure. Without all of the media he received, he wouldn't be where he is today. Andrew has been featured on over 70 media stations around the world. Before being featured on so much media, he was only charging $2,000 per speaking engagement (that included travel and lodging in that fee.)

Exactly one year later...  His fee increased to $5,000 plus travel and lodging.  The best part... he was not only charging more, but he was getting more clients.  Andrew did all of this without spending a dime on a PR firm or agency.  After so much media coverage, he started to learn more about the industry and came up with his own ways of getting more coverage.  Now, Mr. O'Brien doesn't have to reach out to media any longer on that side of business.  It has gotten to the point where high-scale media is contacting him instead.  This is what he teaches.  Andrew teach individuals how to get to the point that high scale media is chasing, instead of you chasing them.
