We are a private investment and advisory firm built by experienced entrepreneurs and world-class professionals. Alex and Leila Hormozi are first generation Iranian-American entrepreneurs. In 2013, Alex started his first brick & mortar business. Within three years, he successfully scaled his business to six locations. He then sold his locations to transition to the turnaround business. During this time, Alex met Leila, who had started a career in fitness and was the top selling personal trainer in the region. Leila accompanied Alex on his fourth turnaround, and each turnaround thereafter. From there on, the two were inseparable. In two years time, they turned 32+ brick & mortar businesses around using the same model that made his privately owned locations successful. After the turnaround business experience, they packaged Alex's process into a licensing model which scaled to over 4000+ locations in four years. Over that same four year period, the two founded and scaled three other companies to $120M+ in cumulative sales across four different industries (software, service, e-commerce, and brick & mortar) without taking on outside capital. Recently, they exited all of these businesses in order to give their complete focus to growing, a company dedicated to helping founders scale their businesses to the same degree of success they had. The Hormozi's goal is to attract and hire the very best people to help's portfolio companies thrive and prosper, as they have a keen understanding of what it takes to dramatically scale small businesses. Most entrepreneurs lack the who, the what, and the how to scale. At, we partner with companies looking to grow to $100M and beyond. We help recruit the “who”, work with our partners on the “what”, and show them the “how”. Once an entrepreneur has all three, their business scales. WHO Recruit talent with a winning track record to achieve new levels of growth. WHAT Lay out the big initiatives that will grow the company’s value the most, and ruthlessly eliminate everything else. HOW Help partners install our step by step proven growth strategies into each function of the business. WHAT OUR PARTNERS GET Triple revenue in 5 years or less Increase monthly cash flow Develop a core leadership team to drive growth Grow from “Big Small Business” into “Valuable, Sellable Enterprise” WHAT ARE OUR VALUES? Unimpeachable Character Competitive Greatness Sincere Candor We hold these above all else and look for them in our partners and employees.
