From marketing to time management, Robin will give you her most powerful secrets to secure FAST and SUBSTANTIAL gains in any IT services business.

Mike Bazar | CEO Of Bazar Solutions

CEO Of Bazar Solutions

Mike Bazar

After averaging 107% growth for the first 5 years in business, Bazar Solutions hit a wall.  What started out as a ‘pause’ to try to slow down and “circle the wagons” turned into two years of flat growth. This is part of the reason Mike is a firm believer in embracing the chaos that life throws at you. Slowing down does nothing but kill your momentum and forces you to start over. That “little” pause cost their company over a million dollars in top-line revenue.  BUT Mike joined Producers Club in 2017 to get out of the rut and get back into growth mode. He needed accountability and coaching and found it with TMT. Mike was the Better Your Best winner in 2021, growing the business by over 60% during a global pandemic and all via sales and marketing efforts. Since starting with TMT, Bazar Solutions has had over 200% growth in revenue and an astounding 1,253% growth in profits!

Mike lives in Lubbock, Texas with his wife and 4 kids (ages 14, 12, 8, and 6). He loves to travel and has taken his family all over the world.  He’s of the firm belief that you need to grab life by the horns, wrestle it to the ground and make the most of it. In 2021 he won the Better your Best contest and it sparked a real desire to spread knowledge to other MSPs, helping them to get ‘unstuck’ with the simple ‘One in a row’ method.  His mantra for our members: “Sit Down, Buckle Up, Clear your head trash, and Let’s Grow!”

By the end of the first year, they had added $20K MRR, and recovered 100% from the large client that they lost. Since then, B4 Networks has grown on average 25% year over year, has made it to the MSP Mentor 501 list and won Canada’s Top 50 Managed IT Companies.

CEO Of Expera Information Technology, Inc

Vincent Fung

When the Calgary economy crashed in 2016, Vince's business lost over $28,000 of recurring revenue.

In 2017, he grew Expera IT another 45% to reach $6M. Expera IT continues to grow with annual revenues of over $7.5M today.

As a Better Your Best Finalist in 2017, Vince Fung has become one of Robin's hungriest students, not only has he excelled in executing a ton of results-focused sales and marketing campaigns (QBRs, direct mail, seminars, print newsletters, postcards, networking events, joint venture partnerships and even writing a book), he improved his entire business — from hiring to service delivery. Today, Vince shares his knowledge and experiences with other hungry IT business owners like yourself and give you the guidance and accountability to DOUBLE or TRIPLE your revenues — no matter the economy.

Scott Beck | CEO BeckTek

CEO Of BeckTek

Scott Beck

Living in a small market of only 140,000 people, Scott took almost a decade to realize he didn’t own a business. He had created a thankless job that was slowly grinding him down, trading time for money – often putting in 18- to 20-hour workdays to generate $180K in break-fix work for only $3K MRR. Not bad for a one-man show, but he realized it wasn’t scalable and NOT sustainable year over year.

Knowing there had to be a better way, Scott found Technology Marketing Toolkit and took a leap of faith, jumping into the training with both feet. Fast-forward to today, BeckTek is now five people, gross revenues are up 5x and MRR up 1,300% since working to change his focus from being the tech to building a business. Scott knows what it’s like to be the one-man band or small company bumping against the ceiling and how to keep breaking through to the next level, utilizing Robin’s marketing, tools and training. Scott is a two-time international best-selling author, an award-winning speaker and a frequent TV celebrity guest expert with appearances on NBC, ABC, Fox, the CW, CTV and Global.

Owner Of Preactive IT Solutions

Charles Swihart

Now, just a few years later, Charles’s team is sending 100 marketing letters each week and has grown MRR to $150K.
