"You Will Get All You Want In Life, If You Help Enough Other People Get What They Want" -Zig Ziglar
How I went from building companies...to helping thousands of people achieve a career and purpose they love.
Growing up in an inner city neighborhood in upstate New York...you learned to HUSTLE at an early stage. I was financially independent at 12 years of age, leveraging my entrepreneurial instinct for which I default to everyday.
Six years ago, after successfully building sales and operations teams for start-up divisions and companies, I departed corporate America and we started PIVITU...the hardest, yet most rewarding job we ever signed up to do.
It Was Hard to Find You!
We focused on the area we loved the most...finding, nurturing and witnessing the trajectory of great entry-level talent. It was the lifeblood of a start-up company. However, with a small footprint of employees, you could not afford to make a mistake. It was difficult to find the NCAA swimmer who was in the pool at 6AM, six days a week...the transitioning student veteran who served two tours of duty and was pursuing a career. And when we did discover this talent, they often failed during the interview stage. No one was teaching how to navigate and execute this process. How to WIN!
The First Years Were Brutal
We did not hit the eject button from the corporate world of benefits and bonuses and land smoothly. This was a true white canvas start-up.
Every small 'win' would be distorted by self-doubt and sunk cost trying to justify the long hours without the cashflow to justify it's success.
PIVITU has been built one brick at a time...including hundreds of pure 1-on-1 career co-pilot engagements, witnessing the power of our disruptive blueprint. The PIVIT Protege's became family.
Things became viral as we engaged the entire college ecosystem embracing our high-octane boot camps serving events with over 800 attendees. The program had validation. Audiences doubled in size.
And when we finally did get traction, we realized we needed to serve more than 10,000 PIVITU graduates per year.
We were self-sustaining entrepreneurs, helping people achieve their dreams. Now, this experiment has evolved into a MISSION.
How do we help more people?
We discovered that building our dream business was in complete sync with helping others achieve theirs. We have had the honor of serving Special Operations families and NFL athletes to name a few. It was time to scale and optimize the delivery of our content offering full accessibility.
