Who Should Take This Course?

Zero-To-Viral provides the most value for these audiences, before wasting any time and money by purchasing this course, make sure you fall within at least one of these categories:

1) Both Non-Technical Entrepreneurs & Techno-Savvy Startup Junkies

Both new and experienced ENTREPRENEURS, STARTUP JUNKIES, & NON-TECHNICAL INDIVIDUALS, who want to fully understand how to best harness and integrate technology to make a killing developing and scaling their own businesses.

For entrepreneurs, you’ll be provided with both a complete technical foundation as well as the optimal trajectory to successfully create and scale ALL of your future business ideas. You won’t just understand more about software, you will ACTIVELY BE ABLE to FRAME technology as the centerpiece of your next startup launches.

If you are an entrepreneur that absolutely refuses to ever touch a line of code, we’ll show you the best ways to nurture your ideas by utilizing automated software development tools or by partnering up with current software developers.

2) 9-5 Workers Looking For More | Career Enhancers & Intrapreneurs | Career Switchers

If you feel under-appreciated, under-utilized, micro-managed, under-paid or just plain unfulfilled in your 9-5 work, this course will empower you to “level-up” and land a better, more lucrative and fulfilling technology focused position.

If you are not sold on your current career and are looking to explore new paths centered around technology and software, this course will provide you with a hands-on foundation to successfully transition to almost ANY techno-centric field.

If you are looking to add more value to your existing position or company by adding proficiencies with new platforms, technologies, this course will enable you to do so.

3) Current Students

If you are a technically oriented computer science, information technology, or business administration student looking to find an effective way to pay off your student loans WHILE STILL IN SCHOOL, we’ll show you how to do so.

If you are a non-technical or business major- liberal arts, philosophy, architecture (it doesn’t really matter) we will show you how to break into the startup world and launch your own businesses without any preexisting technical expertise.

If you are dreaming of becoming the next Evan Spiegel or Mark Zuckerberg then you’ll find this course immensely relevant.

4) Underachievers That Have Failed To Launch | Full-Time Netflix/Game of Throne’s Addicts.

If you are:

  • 35 years-old and still living in your parents’ basement (lights out at 10:30 PM)
  • Cleaning up monkey dung at the town zoo
  • Spending more time playing Grand Theft Auto & Halo than sleeping

5) The Highly Motivated That Lack The Raw Business Ideas/Concepts

Even if you don't have any new business ideas whatsoever we’ll provide you with over a dozen techno-centric concepts that are just waiting to be brought to life.

6) Parents (makes a ridiculously good gift for the entrepreneur or developer in your family)

16+ years as a serial entrepreneur with a heavy focus on integrating and demystifying entrepreneurship and technology.

I've had some SPECTACULARLY epic business failures (ask me about them!) as well as a few successes along the way. I also have broad expertise in business incubation, sales force development, data management and interpretation, as well as digital & traditional marketing. I've built both brick-and-mortar companies as well as technology focused startups. Lastly, I run a face-to-face meetup group for both entrepreneurs and software developers in Manhattan.

My flagship course, Code & Grow Rich is the culmination of over 2 years of work and provides a vehicle for entrepreneurs to unleash the power of technology within their startups. This course is centered around the modern technopreneur notion of adaptive return on investment and is primarily geared toward both non-technical founders and developers alike.
