Brad Upton is Dry Bar Comedy’s most popular comedian with over 250 million views. Those millions of viewers and social media presence has resulted in sold out shows around the world!  His immense internet fame has also caught the eye of Nashville where he has become a regular guest at the iconic Grand Ole Opry. He packs as many laughs per minute into his set as well as anyone in the business and has truly mastered the nearly impossible task of appealing to people of all ages and backgrounds.

In this free training, you’ll learn:

  • Why most businesses fail.
  • The difference between a business that's a machine vs a business that's a job that you happen to own.
  • The three sources of money for every business.
  • How to get back control (of time and money) from your business.
  • Why most business owners make less than $100k in income.
  • The 16 drivers that drive revenue, profit and cashf low in every business (that you need to watch like a hawk).

About the Training

There are three traps that most business owners find themselves in:

Trap #1: You're working too hard and making little money.

Trap #2: You're stuck in a Catch-22. You want to grow your business, but you need cash to do so. However, you can't get more cash without growing your business.

Trap #3: You are the business. If you take two weeks off, a week off, or even a day off, your business doesn't run as smoothly.
