Hi, I’m Bret Gregory and I’m passionate about health and wellness and teaching enlightened entrepreneurs how to thrive and grow their business using Facebook.
This wasn’t always my life. 8 years ago, I was running a successful financial advisory business that I grew from scratch. I had been in this business for 10 years and while it was financially successful, I was not truly happy, actually I was bored and unfulfilled. I was making money, but I wasn’t making a difference in people’s lives and in the world.
This was when a family tragedy altered my life forever. In 2006 my 32 year old brother was diagnosed with terminal lung cancer, and given nine months to live. His passing nine months later was the catalyst for a major shift in my life. I realized I was wasting my time working in a field that was not my true calling. I decided to dedicate my life to serving others and helping people achieve better health and wellness, so that anyone who wanted to avoid what my family had to go through would be able to.
I cast off my suit and tie and sold my business. I then took the proceeds of the sale and bought a beautiful property in Costa Rica, and began developing a wellness community that would help people change their habits and live the healthy, natural lifestyles we are meant to.
Not long after this, the global financial crisis of 2008 hit. I couldn’t get any customers purchased into our wellness community. I tried everything…and I mean everything …to get customers, and nothing was working. I did traditional advertising, Google ad words, I even hired a team out of India to do SEO.
I knew if I couldn’t get customers, I was going to go out of business, so I set out on a mission to succeed and save our new business. I focused on using Facebook to get customers. After a lot of trial and error, and some financial investment I finally figured it out! I quickly grew a page to 200,000 fans, drove traffic to our website and got 2,400 email address opt-ins. From those opt-ins, 20 people flew down to Costa Rica and the subsequent sales totaled $1.5 million dollars and saved the business! Successful Facebook marketing meant we didn’t have to give our wellness community back to the bank.
Now, I teach you, the enlightened entrepreneur how to thrive and grow your business on Facebook. I’d like to show you how to do things effectively the first time around so that you can use Facebook to attract new customers to your business now.
