My career started in 1997 when I took my first job selling high-end suits to wealthy business people. In 1998, I transitioned into the commercial vehicle 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 a start-up in 2009 to a successful sale in 2016. It was an amazing experience to build a company that employed a fantastic group of loyal employees and serviced a diverse customer base. I’m very proud of the marketing work our team did that resulted in over $300,000 in online sales over a 2-year period.
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.
My career has enabled me to be location independent which allowed me to relocate to live close to all my family, it has allowed my wife and I to have freedom and flexibility in our lives, and it has allowed us to focus on things that we are passionate about and work with people we want to work with.
This is what I want to help you accomplish.
Thank you for visiting the website, please subscribe, rate and review the podcasts and I look forward to working with you soon.

“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.”
