"To Lift Up Others Through Education"


We help education entrepreneurs to help their learners achieve desired outcomes, to truly change lives, and make a great living in the process.

We help them by creating the software, strategies, communiity, and training to grow high value online courses or training based membership websites from nothing.

The change we want to make is to democratize learning in the digital classroom, to put power in the hands of education entrepreneurs, and help as many people as we can to reach their dreams.

We'll know we are successful when we are seen as the organization that can help any education entrepreneur that is on a mission to help their learners overcome problems, capture opportunity, and make a huge impact in their community.

We'll know we are successful when our education entrepreneurs consistently achieve financial, location, and creative freedom.

We'll know we are successful in the WordPress community when we are seen as the model for how to do freemium in WordPress.

We will create our legacy by changing lives for WordPress LMS site building professionals, our customers, their learners, our families, our communities, and the world in every way we can.
