104 Brian Kurtz Smart Business Revolution Episode Artwork


Over the course of 34 years, Brian Kurtz worked his way up the ladder at Boardroom, Inc. and became an expert in all things Direct Marketing.

Thanks to that experience, Brian’s gone from being mentored by some of the industry’s top leaders to now charging $25,000 for a membership to his own mastermind group.

In addition to hearing about that journey, we’re also going to get Brian’s insights on how to “find” mentors.

In this episode, we also talk about:

  • Why High-Quality Content Is Key in Direct Marketing
  • The Benefits of Hosting 150 Boardroom Dinners
  • Why Brian Spends $70,000 Annually on Mastermind Groups
  • Brian’s Advice for “Finding” a Mentor
  • Why Brian was an Intrapreneur for Several Years
  • Why Brian Left Boardroom After 34 Years
  • Brian’s Challenge for You
  • What Brian Learned After Giving Acceptance Speeches for Multiple Awards

This episode is sponsored today by Rise25 Inner Circle… Rise25 is an exclusive, application-only accountability and group coaching program for professional services entrepreneurs running 6, 7 and 8 figure businesses who want to scale up, and shift from “one to one” client work to “one to many.”

Rise25 Inner Circle was founded by my business partner, Dr. Jeremy Weisz and myself… every few months, at 4-star luxury properties, we bring together like-minded entrepreneurs who come from client-serving backgrounds and they want to make the shift from chasing clients to having large groups of clients and buyers chasing them.

What makes these events different from any other events you’ve seen for entrepreneurs is we bring in our “Sherpas” – 8 and 9 figure entrepreneurs who are there the full time, in the retreat room providing feedback. Think of the Sharks from “Shark Tank” except they only give out advice rather than investment.

Then we back up those live in-person retreats with ongoing, regular accountability and group coaching – so you are guaranteed to turn inspiration into action.
