“Hi Bruce, I just wanted to say that I was on your Pivot! webinar this afternoon and it was awesome. Your case studies get the mind thinking but more importantly thinking outside the box,” Rob Koraca

AND MUCH MORE…
Prof Bruce teaches using the case study method so you won’t have to guess—you’ll know what to do because you will see and learn from many case studies of successful startups…
And better yet, you will start your own biz during the three months or so it should take you to complete the course. Of course, you go at your own pace too.
Here’s the preparatory webinar that everyone should watch. Why? Firstly, because it’ll help you understand how to create a successful gig/side hustle/PB4L with a business model that provides a competitive advantage that allows you to build a sustainable new enterprise. Secondly, you’ll get a feel for what’s in the course and whether it’s right for you.

“In the 21st century there isn’t a person who wouldn’t benefit and get inspired by Bruce Firestone’s teachings. I have been a huge Robert Kiyosaki fan but I must say, I loved Prof Bruce’s ideas even more. His expansive creativity and thinking goes beyond Kiyosaki. Bruce generously shares real case studies with real value. A true teacher. Build your business like your life depended on it, which maybe it does today,” Jill Koster BC
It’ll be life-changing for those who take it, I am quite sure…
“I consider myself well-rounded having been in management positions for most of my working career. I thought I was pretty good at what I do until I met Prof Bruce. He is so far above my level of business knowledge and understanding that I couldn’t help but be elevated upwards towards his level,” Rick Rose, Windsor
I’ve helped more than 2,500 other people create new enterprises not to mention that I started many on my own account such as the NHL’s Ottawa Senators, the Palladium (now called Canadian Tire Centre, where the Sens play), Ottawa Business News (now called Ottawa Business Journal), PETA (Presidential Executive Apartments, sort of Airbnb before there was Airbnb), TCCL (Terrace Corporate Centres, a mini office provider, the precursor to co-working spaces), Blue Heron Storage Corporation (a mini storage business). I also built more than 1,200 homes in a number of subdivisions, plus dozens of office buildings and shopping plazas…
“I’ve spent about $180,000 during my career on my education involving real estate, property management and renovation work. But Prof Bruce’s program blew me away—it taught me things I’ve never learned anywhere else,” Dave Rathbone
I invited nine other entrepreneurs (men and women who have started every kind of business from successful mobile pet grooming to renovation biz to tech startup to a publishing house focused on comics to a storage enterprise on the fast track to business superstardom) to join in. Might as well also learn from former students or coaching clients of mine who are living their lives as gigpreneurs, right? Some started out as side hustles but have evolved into enterprises of real substance and scale.

“I am on track to reach my twin goals of $1,000 per day passive income and a two-hour workweek before I turn 55 thanks to Prof Bruce’s real estate investment and biz coaching. I adopted the right business model and implemented it fearlessly because of his input,” Peter, commercial real estate developer and investor, 2020
