The How & Why We Started BurnTheShips.com

It started over one of our favorite activities, smoking cigars. Judge and I fired up the Davidoff “pigs” at our local cigar shop and started talking business, (our second favorite activity), and we came to the same conclusion within minutes. We were sick and tired of fake gurus on social media telling everyone to become an entrepreneur to find their freedom. We have built and sold 9-figure companies and lived the “entrepreneur” life. It was hard as hell. It was worth it, but it was hard. Freedom took a long time for us to find after countless hours away from our families, and struggling to scale revenues and profits. We started at the bottom and have finished close to the top. We both shared the opinion that 99% of business gurus on social media are full of shit. They have not made their money building real businesses. We have.

It became clear to us, entrepreneurs need a roadmap. Through the Davidoff aroma, we started to outline the step by step process of how we built our companies. We ended up with a fully outlined proven roadmap that produced our own business success that could be shared with entrepreneurs everywhere in every business.

We just didn’t know what to do with our outline, so we fired up another cigar and built out a business. We called it Burn The Ships and we loved the sound of it and committed to partner on it. 

Our first event was (and still is) our Burn The Ships Business Bootcamp. A 1 ½ day event in our hometown of Dallas, TX, in which 20 likeminded business owners come to us and get schooled, by us, on how we did it. How we built real businesses that centered on company culture and core values and competitive analysis and profits and speed. Our first event sold out in 2 weeks and continue to this day to be amazing events that are changing the lives of our attendees.

Since our first bootcamp, we have created a total of 3 programs. Each designed to address the life cycle of entrepreneurs. Our content helps entrepreneurs become CEO’s, and CEO’s to get liquid. We teach the language of business in a way that only we can do it. Tough, frank, honest, passionate and proven.
