[Case Study] How Chris Achieved Financial Freedom & Leveled Up All Areas Of Life By Surrounding Himself With Trusted Advisors

It's Free And Takes Less Than 3 Minutes...

You started your business because you saw a timely opportunity and wanted to build a better life for yourself and your family, right?

At least that's what you had in mind, and what the gurus made you believe.

But growing your business while maintaining balance at home is a lot harder and lot less glamorous than you thought.

It feels like you're doing everything, yet things are going nowhere (most of the time).

The more mistakes you make, the more pressure you feel to PROVE you can figure it out on your own.

As men, we’re not taught to ask for help. We don’t know how to do it, so we think it always come at a price beyond what we can afford.

To make matters worse, time is flying by. You’re getting stuck, but the clock keeps ticking, and the longer you stay ISOLATED, the worse it gets. 

Where's the extraordinary life everyone talks about?

Why does it feel like you're going around and around in circles with no clear path or direction? 

And why is it every time you declare THIS is going to be the month that everything changes, you end up having the same kind of month you had before?

Let's first admit it's not working


You went your own way because you found something you were passionate about.

Yet, most days you question how you got here in the first place.

You go back and forth knowing whole heartedly that you were meant to carry out a grand vision, and questioning why you ever thought you had what it took to succeed.

Deep down, you've known you can have it all - a thriving business, an amazing love life, a happy family, good finances, and great health - but you're falling short in all areas of life right now.

How did you get here?

How do you change course?

What's the solution?

Business & Personal Transformation

What's Included With Your ISI Membership



Isolation moves in quickly when you have your head down. There are groups out there that meet once a month, once a quarter or once a year … and that’s fine. But if you want to win in business AND in life - marriage, kids, God, personal growth - you need to be able to move faster than isolation. There’s something unbeatable about being “an open book” with your life, and the best way to do that is to purposefully show up, week after week, in front of your peer advisory group.



Where would we be without the opportunity to meet up in-person, talk face-to-face and take a short break from our daily routine? Every spring and fall, we gather together. There is a live “all hands” event in Nashville, Tennessee, where the entire group meets in one place. But we also take the opportunity to add another 47 hours to the single hour you normally spend with your group. These “platoon” size meetups take place all over the United States and the world. Where there’s a concentration of ISI brothers, a gathering is sure to follow and become a tradition!



Around this world are incredible people you’ll never meet … or will you? Your life and business will grow the most because of who knows you. It’s a member benefit where the sky’s the limit, and it just depends on how far you want to take it. Once you join, you can immediately begin to reach out, introduce yourself and spend time getting to know your new brotherhood. Our members have gone into business partnerships, taken vacations together and formed crucial spiritual alliances. You will search much further, and for much longer, to find the quality of fellowship you’ll find in ISI.



One great thing about being connected to so many incredible people … is how many other incredible people they bring with them! Each month, you’ll enjoy exclusive access to some of the world’s most dynamic, influential and growth-minded people. Where else could you get the opportunity to interact with great men like Seth Godin, John Lee Dumas, John Eldredge, Pete Vargas, Ray Edwards and Michael Hyatt, just to name a few? All of our interviews are archived and available to you as a member exclusive, enabling you to go back and listen to as many as you like, as often as you like.



Leaders are readers. But sometimes, it can be tricky to figure out what to read next. When you’re part of Iron Sharpens Iron, however, you can walk in step with an entire community and go deep on the best business books out there. In another enriching experience, a cross-section of our membership meets monthly to discuss what we’re reading, and how to apply it. In addition to what you learn from the book, you’ll also form new connections with members from other “sub-groups,” and establish rhythms that help you stay in the mindset of constant growth.

High levels of accountability, especially among your personal board of unbiased advisors, builds momentum and confidence. Knowing that you'll be held responsible for your decisions builds stronger relationships, better businesses, and helps you accomplish your goals faster.
  • Tight-Knit Community
Realizing there are business leaders on the same path as you (and that you're not alone) is transformational on many levels.

ISI men share their knowledge and experience with complete transparency and honesty. 
  • Investment Opportunities 
One of the key aspects of a high-performing mastermind is trust between its members. Because ISI men are comfortable being open and honest with their concerns, questions, mistakes and roadblocks, it ultimately creates a collaborative environment which has led to investment opportunities of all sorts (i.e. real estate deals, business investments, startup opportunities, etc.). 

NOTE: Iron Sharpens Iron is NOT for Everyone...

Not everyone has the strength and courage to be held to a higher standard. ISI is only for a special breed of men who share the same goals of becoming better husbands, fathers, and business leaders while supporting other men at different points on the same journey. ISI will give you a safe space for unprecedented growth personally, professionally, and spiritually.
