Are you ready to accomplish more for your business in just 1 week than you have for the past 12 months?
EXECUTE. is a retreat that isn’t like the rest. It’s about doing.
For seven days you will work with subject matter experts in their fields to get some of the toughest parts of your business handled once and for all.
Have you noticed that everyone knows what to do and nobody is doing it?
Our story begins with Mike Hrostoski and Nicky Hajal having a deep conversation around the science of success.
We were reminiscing on the incredible events we’ve experienced in the past two years and the entrepreneurs we’ve seen who have found success. Real success. “I can’t believe this is my life anymore!” type success.
We came to realize that of the hundreds of entrepreneurs we’ve met over the years, the ones who became really successful weren’t the conference-hounds or information-junkies…
They were the execution-junkies.
The ones who weren’t at every conference. The ones who, instead of learning ten things and applying one of them, would learn one and apply it ten ways.
As we thought about this, an idea washed over us. We dropped everything we were doing and got Kyle Durand on Skype to begin planning a new kind of event.
An event where sacred space is created for doing some serious work.
An event where all distractions, excuses, and fears are eliminated from your life forever.
An event where you birth the business that you were born to create.
An event where you EXECUTE.
EXECUTE. is for the purpose-driven entrepreneur who is ready to step out onto the stage in a big way.
Do any of these situations sound familiar?
You run a services-based business and you’re damn good at what you do. But no one is buying your services.
You’ve been sitting on your business ideas for weeks, months, or maybe even years now. You know they have the potential to make hundreds of thousands of dollars – probably more. But, you’re scared to share them with the world.
You’ve been to multiple conferences on internet marketing, blogging, and entrepreneurship, but you don’t know where to start. So, you read more blogs and listen to more podcasts to convince yourself that you’re “working.”
You’re amazing at what you do, but you don’t know how to communicate that effectively to the marketplace. So no one even knows you exist.
You’re running a relatively successful business right now, but you’re afraid that at any point it’s all going to crumble if you get audited. Your business foundation is built on a house of cards.
You’ve been stuck in your business for the past couple of months and you’re ready to just call it quits and get a day job again.
You know you were built for something greater, but you don’t know the first step to take.
That’s what we’re here for.
A dream team of experts by your side as you tackle the most difficult aspects of your business.
If you’ve been telling yourself you just need some expert advice before you can build a business, that excuse just went up in smoke.
Even if you’re comfortable in one area of your business, working closely with someone who’s been there and done that in the areas that are challenging to you can be a lifesaver.
That’s why we’re so excited to be able to come together to give you everything you need to get your business off the ground.
We’ve worked with some of the biggest names on the Internet. We’ve built our own businesses from the ground up. And we’re going to share with you everything we’ve learned along the way.
To maximize our time together, we’re only going to work with six of you. We want you to have as much assistance as you need to work through your obstacles in real time.
Before we go any further, why don’t you get to know us a little better.
Business Coach, Copywriter, Mindset Ninja
Execution starts in the mind.
When it comes to taking action, what you know is rarely what keeps you from moving forward.
It’s your mind and the fears and doubts inside them that keep you from executing when the time is right.
Mike will be with us every step of the way to keeping our minds so sharp, cutting through our daily tasks will feel like a walk in the park.
In his coaching practice, Mike helps high-performing men make massive shifts in their relationships and their businesses. Here are what his clients have to say about his work.
In just under six months of working with Mike I launched a $10,000 coaching program from a Facebook message and have cut the hours I work each week from 40+ to 20 or less. I’m happier than ever, less stressed, and my business isn’t completely disintegrating (as I feared when Mike had me start prioritizing play over work). Mike is a total badass, an amazing coach and exceptional human being. I’m grateful to know him and have his influence in my life and work.
Jonathan Mead, Founder of PaidToExist.com
Working with Mike has been tremendous to say the least. He has the uncanny ability to create bulletproof confidence in anyone he comes across. After just one session, I increased my monthly coaching fee from $200/month to $1000/month and got my first client at that price within the week.
Max Nachamkin, Founder of InnerGladiator.com
In less than two months of working with Mike, I’ve leveled up my life by decades. Mike pushes you to your edge, empowers you to demand more from yourself, and isn’t afraid to ask the tough questions. Watching him interact with other clients has confirmed in my mind that his ability to dissect and tackle complex issues is matched by few others in this industry.
Sam Hershberger, Founder of UndergradSuccess.com and Hershberger.co
Once Mike helps you get your mind right, you’re going to need a solid foundation to build your business upon. That’s where Kyle comes in.
Tax Attorney, Business Consultant, Serial Entrepreneur
Building your business on a solid foundation gives you the freedom to blast forward.
A business established on a shaky understructure injects fear and uncertainty into every day.
Kyle is going to work with every attendee to help them build a strong business foundation once and for all. This means that you will walk out of EXECUTE. with a business structure, financial systems, contracts and frameworks for leveraging partnerships and joint ventures to take your business to the next level.
Kyle understands that your expertise is not in legal and financial issues and will meet you where you are in your current understanding of his world. His approach is all about creating easy to manage systems that help your business run more smoothly, keep the government off your back and free you up to enjoy the bigger things in life.
Kyle works with the authors whose books you read and the entrepreneurs whose work have changed countless lives. Here’s what a couple of them have to say about his work.
Kyle has done the unthinkable: turned this liberal arts major into a contract and Quickbooks loving fool. He helped me set up a rock-solid business foundation, and made me into a lifelong evangelist for solid legal and financial systems.
Pam Slim, Best selling author of Escape From Cubical Nation
Kyle Durand is a whip-smart speaker and business strategist extraordinaire. As a speaker at my live event, Kyle wowed participants with all the knowledge and resources he shared. Some speakers save their best content for their paid products, but Kyle generously packed his session with coaching and strategy that would usually cost thousands of dollars.
Natalie MacNeil, Award-winning author and Emmy Award winning producer
Anyone with a laptop, an idea and an internet connection can start a business today but no one knows how to set it up like Kyle. He takes a holistic and non-templated approach to building a business around your lifestyle and values, which is no easy task. I value his advice beyond words and never make a business move without talking with him first.
Natalie Sisson, Best selling author of The Suitcase Entrepreneur
Once you have a solid legal, financial and administrative foundation to stand on, you’re going to need someone to help you build your empire online. Enter Nicky…
Web Developer, Product Creator
The technical side of your business doesn’t have to be so mysteriously difficult!
Nicky built his first website when he was 11 and hasn’t stopped since.
After three years studying product development he dropped out of college to live life on his own terms – he knows how it feels to have nothing but your execution to rely on for survival and success.
Nicky only works on projects that have massive impact in the world. Here’s what a couple of his clients have said about working with him.
Nicky Hajal is my resident genius (Google it), and he’s helped to build many of my successful projects.
But what most people don’t realize is that he has other skills as well. Not just the sensitive whiskey palate—I mean the ability to look at the big picture of why we create a project in the first place, and what the ultimate goals are.
If you get the chance to work with him, act now! (And do bring a bottle of Ardbeg 10 just in case.)
Chris Guillebeau, Author of NY Times Bestseller, The $100 Startup
When people talk about software developers, they often mention a small elite group who are 10x more effective than the average developer. Nicky Hajal is one of those gifted technical minds.
I hired him for a small project a couple of years ago, and have been begging him to let me hire him again. The problem is, he’s in such demand I haven’t been able to lure him away, but I’ll keep trying.
Corbett Barr, Founder of ThinkTraffic and Fizzle.co
Everyone knows Nicky is a genius – so I don’t need to reaffirm that here – just ask around. What I love most is not his top-notch design and development skills, but rather the fact that he actually gives a shit about the CUSTOMER… he prioritizes *their* needs… and is in tune with their experience as they interact with our websites and education.
He understands that the job we serve is to solve problems for our customers – and knows how to develop software, websites, and plugins that go deeper than just being functional. He develops platforms that dig deep to affect change and help overcome challenges for students.And for that reason, he’ll always be the first person I call when I need help.
He’s been a core part of my team for years – I couldn’t imagine what my online business would be without him.
Adam Baker, Founder of Man Vs. Debt, Partner at Still Motion
That’s right. Nicky is going to make sure that you have a world-class website by the end of our week together. But that’s not all we’re guaranteeing.
We’re talking tangible results. Here’s exactly what we guarantee after spending a week with us.
We’ve been where you are. We know how difficult it can be just to do what you need to do when you are constantly bombarded by new information.
We’ve identified the aspects of building a business that were the most challenging for us and other entrepreneurs we know. We are going to knock those out together in one week.
Here’s where you’ll be by the time you leave the mansion in Phoenix:
Your business infrastructure on firm footing. All financial systems in place.
We’ve seen so many people interested in starting a business that held themselves back because:
1) They were worried about stepping into a legal world they didn’t understand.
2) They were afraid of looking inexperienced or silly when asking for professional help (Nicky felt this way himself all the time until he met Kyle).
3) They feared that without a way to navigate those harsh seas, they’d get into some sort of legal trouble down the road.
So, how do the business-owners that make it survive the murky waters of entrepreneurship. They have an expert on their side, guiding them. It’s a must.
That’s exactly what you’ll have in Kyle. He will guide you every step of the way, listening to your businesses needs and telling you exactly what to expect.
Together, you’ll figure out the best business structure for your work and Kyle will move forward in implementing it with you. He’ll identify any areas of risk to make sure you’re protected.
You’ll have systems in place to handle all your finances and a clear understanding of how little you actually need to do to stay on the ball.
Throughout the entire process you are encouraged to ask questions and openly communicate with Kyle until you completely understand how all the pieces come together.
Your web-presence is good to go and you’re ready to accept customers.
If you’ve made it this far, you’re undoubtedly an expert at something and part of your struggle is just figuring out how to deliver that value online.
“Where should I host my website?”
“How can I deliver my premium content safely and effectively?”
“What’s the best way to accept payments?”
“How can I setup an online community?”
Stop wasting time trying to answer those questions.
At EXECUTE., we’re going to dive deep into every attendee’s specific technical needs.
By the time you leave you’ll be setup with reliable hosting, a functional website you can be proud of and the best payment processing system for your needs.
You’ll feel comfortable putting together new landing pages and building out other areas of your site.
You’ll have a big-picture understanding of how your site works so you won’t get blind-sighted down the line – but we’re not going to waste any of your time teaching you nitty-gritty technical stuff you don’t need or care about.
Your market is clearly identified and you have a persuasive yet respectable sales page ready to go to work for you.
Some people are natural born sellers and marketers – it’s just in their blood. If that’s you, rest assured knowing that you’ll still find everything else happening at EXECUTE. insanely valuable.
But, let’s be real: most of us aren’t naturals when it comes to standing up and sharing our work with the world as effectively as possible.
In fact, you may think the opposite:
“Marketing is so mysterious, I don’t even know where to begin.”
“It seems like all the successful people have connections so they don’t even need to market.”
“I never want to be a marketer – it’s so scammy.”
“Maybe if I build something good enough, I just won’t have to market it and everything will be fine.”
Drop those lines of thought now.
When you have taken the time to carefully identify who has the problems you can solve, that’s when marketing comes naturally.
That’s why at EXECUTE., we’re going to totally change the way you look at promoting what you do.
We’ll start by clearly defining your customer avatar. Have you heard about how powerful this technique is before? Have you actually done it? No? Now’s the time.
It’s from that clear picture of who you serve that we will hone your product offering and begin developing a bullet-proof sales page.
Finally, as your website comes together at the end of the week we’ll begin focusing on crafting high-converting landing pages and developing your mailing list.
Do you see what we’re getting at here? In one-week we are going to completely handle your sales and marketing from the ground up.
And we’re going to do it in a mansion.
Wow, that’s a lot! Can we go over everything one more time?
Let’s bring it in for a second to make sure we’ve got everything so far.

Did you say special guests? Yep, we’re bringing in the smartest people we know.

We’re going to welcome Chris into one of the most entrepreneur-packed Google Hangouts ever to discuss what to do before EXECUTE. so you’re moving at full-speed once you arrive.
Chris Guillebeau, Author of NY Times Bestseller, The $100 Startup
Then, on the first several days we’ll bring in some of the most talented entrepreneurs we know to lead you through of their most practical, effective material.
Pam will be joining us live in Phoenix, AZ to help with Defining Your Ideal Client.
Pam Slim – Author of Escape From Cubicle Nation
Andy Drish is going to join us via Skype from Thailand to tell us about how he and his team built an email list of 15,000 people in three months… twice.
Andy Drish – Co-Founder of The Foundation
Let’s be clear about one thing: These guests are not spending their time with us to spout off a few tactics and then we all move on with our lives. They are going to be sharing their absolute most actionable material and we will immediately put it into action.
So, you see… we have a lot to accomplish during our week together. Want to know why we’re so confident we’ll be able to make it happen?
We’ve carefully crafted the perfect environment to let you hyperfocus on producing quality work.
Have you noticed you work 10x better in certain places and 10x worse in others?
That’s why we put a huge priority on finding the perfect location that will allow us to work to our absolute maximum potential.
Secluded, but not too secluded. Relaxing, but not too relaxing. Nestled in nature. Spaces to work inside but outside too. Areas to work alone or in groups.
We said no to a ton of beautiful locations until we finally found what we were holding out for…
Just take a look at these photos!

Story time by the fire pit: share your greatest failure and what it taught you
That’s pretty intense. We get it. EXECUTE. is not for everybody.
EXECUTE. is not for you if…
- You think you maybe, kinda, sorta want to start a business, but you don’t know what that business would be.
- You’re not willing to challenge your assumptions and to be open to giving new approaches a genuine chance to succeed.
- You tend to see the negative in any situation you’re in instead of seeing things for the best that they are.
- You give up when things become a little hard, uncomfortable, or scary.
- You’re not willing to put in the effort to get the results you want.
- You’re looking for the “10 Simple Tips To Start A Business With Zero Effort.”
- You don’t have something substantial that you’re working towards, and you just want to hang out in a mansion for week.
EXECUTE. is for the six people who really want to create something great.
Why are the three of us putting all of this work into creating EXECUTE.?
Because we believe that entrepreneurs will change the world.
We believe that the work you do legitimately makes the world a better place.
We believe in cultivating and releasing action out into the world.
We believe in sharing your gifts unapologetically.
We believe in building creators.
And we believe in you.
You’ll walk away with an actual, legitimate business. How much are your dreams worth to you?
We’ve never done this before so we’re willing to split the risk with you. You’ll get the following incredible value.
- Seven full days of one-on-one coaching from Mike, Kyle, and Nicky. (Real Value: $35,000)
- Luxury accommodations in an 8 bedroom mansion in Phoenix, AZ ($1,500)
- Three gourmet meals a day ($700)
- A team of support staff to make sure the only thing you have to worry about is building your business ($500)
- Sessions with our amazing guest speakers, Chris Guillbeau, Pam Slim and Andy Drish ($6,000+)
- A Shark Tank style pitch day with real entrepreneurs to help you practice your pitch and refine your business model ($1,000)
- An epic going away celebration to close out the hardest work week of your life ($300)
- Four follow-up group coaching calls to ensure that you’re still on the right track ($2,000)
- Access to our network as you continue to grow and scale your business (priceless)
Total Value of $47,000+
Mike charges $5,000 for one of his 48-hour weekend intensives.
Kyle charges $5,000 for his Business Foundations package.
And Nicky doesn’t touch a project anymore for anything less than $5,000.
So after doing a little back of the napkin math, we decided that $5,000 + $5,000 + $5,000 = $5,000.
That’s right, only $5,000 for a legitimate business.
And we’re so sure we can help you build the business of your dreams, that we’ll even guarantee it.
It is our commitment to serve you 100% with this work — and we want to make sure it’s a fit for you. If for any reason you’re not entirely satisfied with EXECUTE., you are welcome to a 100% money back guarantee until 8PM at the end of the second night of the event.
All you have to do is ask and your money will be refunded, no questions asked. Your refund will be issued within one week to your credit card.
