My career started in 1997 when I took my first job selling high-end suits in North Vancouver. In 1998, I transitioned into the heavy-duty parts industry. My sales career has spanned over 20-years and I have worked in retail, wholesale distribution, and manufacturing.
In 2008, I decided that I wanted to become an entrepreneur. I launched a consulting business at the beginning of 2009 with a business partner, but the business ultimately failed. I learned more from that business failure than many of the successes I have had. You can listen to my story on the Unshackled Owner.
Later that year, I launched a contracting business, from my last $700 in 2009 to a successful sale in 2016. It was an amazing experience to build a business that employed a fantastic group of loyal employees and serviced a diverse customer base. I’m very proud of the work our team did that resulted in hundreds of thousands of dollars in sales.
My experience doesn’t just come from my work, I am a student of many subjects including; entrepreneurship, business development, leadership, personality profiling, psychology, professional sales, marketing, and personal development. I have completed entrepreneurial training from Michael E. Gerber, and sales training from the Banff Academy of Business and Brian Tracy.
In 2017, I started a BLOG and started writing about business, specifically how to influence your revenue. This led me to become a contributor on Millionaire Digest and to be a guest on world-renowned podcasts like Entrepreneurs on Fire with John Lee Dumas.
In 2018, I launched my own podcast that helps business leaders build a better business.
Thank you for visiting the website, please subscribe, rate and review the podcasts and I look forward to working with you soon.
Each week I interview great people who give tips, insights, tell stories, and best of all share strategies that you can start using today to build a better business.
I also publish an episode each week filled with information that will help you build a better business by teaching you to become better yourself, better than your competition, and better than your customers expect.
Meet my perfect listener!
“Hi! My name is Eric.
I’m a business owner.
Every day I wake up behind, there is so much to do.
I work all day long providing my customers with great service. But, I struggle to charge what I know I’m worth and there never seems to be enough time.
At the end of the day, when all the work is done for my customers, I still have so much to do. Not only do I have office work and marketing to do I have a family to care for. It’s hard to know what to focus on to make my business successful.
A little while ago I started to wonder if there wasn’t a way to build a better business that provides for my family but also creates flexibility and freedom in my life.
So, I started listening to my new favorite podcast, Build a Better Business with Jamie Irvine!
Each week I learn the blueprint other people are using for success, I love hearing how they overcame the barriers we all face as business owners, and I appreciate the teaching moments where I learn something I can focus on to help me build a better business. I also love the weekly episodes where Jamie teaches about a specific aspect of how to build a better business.
My name is Eric, I am learning how to build a better business so naturally I listen to Build a Better Business with Jamie Irvine.”
