Everything you need to start, build and grow your business. In one place.

If you’ve dreamed of starting, building and growing your business, look no further. In this comprehensive A-to-Z program, I’ve put together all my proven strategies in one place. From structuring your business to picking profitable niches, validating ideas, acquiring customers, boosting retention and building a business that runs like clockwork without your day-to-day involvement.

The truth is: you deserve better than trying to figure it out yourself through conflicting YouTube tutorials and learning from so-called entrepreneurs who don’t actively run the businesses they’re teaching you about. Not to mention, most courses only teach a few aspects of running a business. 

Until you experience a systems, hiring or automation challenge and have zero answers. Instead, I’ll teach you how to achieve operational efficiency from day one. Each lesson builds upon itself and ensures you have the strategies, systems and tools to grow and scale. Which means you’ll address challenges before they start.

Ditch theory that sounds good on paper. Access a proven model.

There’s a lot of noise in the entrepreneur education space. Unfortunately, much of it hasn’t been tested, refined or proven across countless niches. It sounds great on podcasts or motivational videos but doesn’t generate results.

That’s what you’re here for, right? Sure, you may get one person’s experience that “worked.” But you must ask yourself: are the strategies duplicatable across various niches? If the answer is no, step away. That’s why I partnered with UpFlip to create this one-of-a-kind program you won’t find anywhere else.

Instead of reinventing the wheel, I’ll walk you through every step of starting, building and growing your business. So you can replace Google searches with a step-by-step process on what to do and how to do it. From acquiring your first customers to automating the customer experience and proven marketing, you’ll get access to done-for-you templates, proven sales scripts, worksheets and PDFs to accelerate your results.

Don’t simply build yourself another 9-5. Build a business that runs without you.

What’s the point in building yourself another job? Too many entrepreneurs forget the reason why they started their business: freedom. Instead, they find themselves grinding “in the trenches” because no one ever taught them how to build a foundation for sustainable growth and scale.

In this program, you’ll discover the secrets to duplicating yourself through hiring top-tier staff who not only fit your culture but exceed your expectations. The goal? Have them do the job better than you ever could. So you can step away with the confidence that comes with a rockstar team.

To do so, I’ll show you how to attract, hire, and retain talented individuals committed to your mission. We'll cover strategies for keeping your team motivated, ensuring they have the tools to overdeliver at every stage of the customer journey. By cultivating a culture that embodies your business values and delivers results, you’ll set your business on a path to sustained excellence.

By the end of the course, you’ll be ahead of 90% of new entrepreneurs.

Here’s my ironclad promise: no matter where you are in your entrepreneurial journey, you’ll leave this course with not only a robust foundation to launch your business but also the strategies and systems needed for consistent growth and long-term scalability. 

Most of all, you’ll transition from dreaming about entrepreneurship to actively running and expanding your business. Having started and scaled multiple successful businesses myself, I’ve experienced setbacks that cost me time and money—our most valuable assets. Now, you can learn from these lessons without enduring the same pitfalls.

Whether you’re just starting out or a seasoned business owner, these strategies are designed to help you grow faster. Including proven marketing strategies, the keys to building a high-performing team and how to scale to 7-figures (and beyond!) This course is designed to be practical and easy to digest, minimizing your learning curve and accelerate your path to business success. 

Zero guesswork, just results. Are you ready to start your journey?

Brandon Vaughn

Brandon Vaughn has been an entrepreneur since he was 13 when he managed his Father’s window cleaning business. This early experience sparked his passion for entrepreneurship. By 18, Brandon was running his own window cleaning business, which led him into property maintenance, remodeling, e-commerce, and marketing.

In 2012, he took over his dad’s struggling business due to health issues. Starting with $8,000 in monthly revenue, Brandon worked hard, and within six years, he boosted the revenue by 50 times and grew the team to 70 people. His growth didn’t go unnoticed, as he won the U.S. S.B.A. Entrepreneurial Spirit Award and landed on the Inc. 5000 list.

Riding on this wave of success, in 2019, Brandon launched Conquer, a coaching service for home service businesses that hit the 7-figure mark in its debut year. Then, he launched Wise Coatings, a home service franchise featured on YouTube’s “Map to a Million.” It’s been growing quickly and even got a nod from Entrepreneur Magazine.

Along the way, Brandon also started HireBus, an AI-driven SaaS recruiting platform, and now owns twelve companies, each bringing in seven to eight figures. With a passion for helping new and experienced entrepreneurs launch, grow and scale their businesses, Brandon partnered with UpFlip to develop this one-of-a-kind program.

Today, Brandon’s passion isn’t just about teaching business strategies. He wants entrepreneurs to copy the models he’s proven across various niches to build self-sustaining businesses that help them experience lifestyle freedom.
