Benefits of Cross-Industry Learning:

"Business is business, and although there are different intricacies of different industries, you really can learn a lot from people that are working outside of your own industry."

About Craig In This Episode

Jamie Connell is a dedicated family man and successful business owner. Married for 16 years, he and his wife are grateful for their happiness and good health, as well as their three lively boys who keep them on their toes. Seeking guidance and support in fulfilling his business vision, Jamie was introduced to the group by his close associate, Matt Kulp.

Jamie joined with the goal of growing as a business owner and was pleasantly surprised that the experience had a positive impact on his personal life as well. Not only did he become more proficient in running his business, but he also became a better father and husband, thanks to the newfound focus and growth he achieved. Although there is still work to be done, Jamie's journey has already brought him great success in both his professional and personal life.




Coaching is an investment of time and money. It’s intense work that required you to be focused on your own personal and business growth. 



Groups of business owners who come together to learn, share encouragement and push one another toward new levels of greatness.



Your team needs intentional time away for training. Come to the farm to gain clarity, connection, and a path forward.



Book club is a great way to try out the network to see if it is a fit for you. Give it a try this month - it’s free and fun. Plus, you'll learn a lot from the book and conversation!



To say that I get it is an understatement. I have lived and worked through the good times and bad as a business owner, husband, parent and provider.

I grew up with strong role models who had entrepreneurship running through their blood. I learned from them - the good and the bad. But all of that didn’t stop me from making my own set of mistakes. I still had to make and learn from my own, sometimes catastrophic, errors of judgement.

Now, I am building a business just like you. I am proud of the growth I’ve accomplished within myself and my business. I also know that my growth is a journey, not a destination and that I need mentors, team members, coaches, and trusted friends to help me stay the course.
