Join us at The Mansion

Foundations of Success takes place just 20 minutes from historic Charleston, SC, named year after year as one of the best travel destinations, not just in the US, but in the world. The lodging for our group is in a beachfront mansion called (what else?) "The Mansion" on beautiful Isle of Palms. Watch the video below to get a better idea of the place you could be spending a week this March. 


I would tell another business owner that there is no price tag on this program. Every session brings something new to the table that we all need - maybe some more than others, but you can always learn something not matter how much you think you know. Tom's spreadsheets, his manuals, his pushing me to overcome whatever I was struggling with has been tremendous. Liz's customer service skills go above and beyond. Derek's marketing information - awesome! I recommend this course to anyone who is looking to make themselves better, improve their company, improve their employee and client relations, improve their numbers and their income!! Absolutely fantastic!
Amy DeVries, Emily's Cleaning (NY)

I totally believe that if it wasn't for Liz, Tom and Derek's program I would not have any employees. For the first time in two years, I have three employees, with one getting ready to celebrate six months with my company. That is totally unheard of until now.
Debra Braman, Maid by Design (OK)

While the Foundations classes are valuable on their own, you also get to interact with like-minded business owners who are growing their businesses. This interaction helps you stay motivated, discover new ideas and ways of doing things, and helps fuel the engine for growth and change. While Liz, Tom and Derek do a great job, Foundations is much more than a 24-week program.
Troy Knight, Castle Keepers of Greenville (SC)

What makes the program so unique is the way the series is tied together, being so complete in every way, including even seemingly simple components like the strategy behind the order the units are presented in, each building upon the previous one in a meticulously well thought-out manner. You have three very different and yet all very successful mentors who all share their unique materials, processes and approaches. It has helped me come to decisions and be able to complete section much more quickly and confidently than I EVER could have or did in past experience, working with any single consultant or one-track way of looking at things. In the Foundations program, you are mentored and coached in a way that helps you drill down to deep into how to develop your personal and unique business to reflect approaches that work with your own management style and includes lots of opportunity to build your own unique strengths and overcome and grow out of your individual weaknesses.
Samantha Snider, ProCare Cleaning (CA)

I can't tell you enough, but what I will say is that you can't build a house without a foundation. This is way more than a 24-week program. Every piece of this program has been valuable. I'm not even sure how I was running my company before the program. It's just great all the way around. Oh, and if just implement the basics of the program, you can very easily double your revenue. That's was I did! It is not a program that tells you that the way you are doing things is wrong. It simply helps you to look at your company from the ground up and helps fix the cracks and leaks, ultimately adding value to your enterprise.
