hey there! I'm

Donald, MBA

I’m an SEO/ PPC/ Digital Marketing Specialist, entrepreneur, content marketing expert, and a Digital Marketing Agency owner.

My teaching approach comes from experience as a successful entrepreneur and Digital Marketing Agency Owner.

Armed with an MBA and a PMP (Project Management Professional), I teach new and aspiring entrepreneurs, business owners, marketers, consultants, and coaches how to build their presence online and scale their businesses by leveraging the power of digital marketing.

In today’s day and age, it’s more important than ever to evolve and pivot. Digital Marketing is no longer an “eventuality.. Or when I have time to get to it” but it is an absolute must in order to survive and thrive in these fast changing market places.
With Google and digital quickly evolving, it’s vital to align with someone that lives and breathes digital marketing and is on the forefront of the latest and greatest, as I practice it religiously for our agency clients.

This journey has not been without sacrifice. Working 7 days a week, and 100+ hours a week … I was able to create more options and opportunities for success in a much shorter time.

“The internet and digital marketing has made it possible for anyone to start up a business and succeed… with the right strategies and knowledge of course.”

Like many of us, I was trading my time for a paycheque. I was living
paycheque to paycheque and not living my life that I was destined to 
live.

I’ve always had an entrepreneurial spirit. Back in 2006, I was doing a lot of volunteer work with the BC Children’s Hospital, where I had started up a non-profit society helping to bridge childhood cancer survivors with the necessary resources that they need as they grow to young adulthood. I built a basic WordPress website, and lone and behold I had a side hustle gig building websites for small business owners.

I knew that I always wanted to startup a company, but I didn’t just didn’t know what at the time.

While in MBA school, I grinded it out while working full time. Originally a
research scientist (BSc in Molecular Biology and Biochemistry), I
decided to take on a new role in sales. It was an entry level sales
position at a biotech company (being in sciences for so many years, I
was pigeon holed into this industry).

I quickly became the top producing sales person
owning both the East Coast and Central US markets.

Through my connections in MBA school, I moved to a startup tech SaaS company,
and worked directly under the VP of Sales and CMO (Chief Marketing
Officer). We used the best of the best marketing automation and
demand generation tools.

That’s when I got the first taste of data and results driven
marketing
. The company went on to raise over $30 million in strategic
Venture Capital (VC) funds and I helped bring in huge clients such as Netflix, Microsoft, Juniper Networks, Hitachi, Charles Schwab, GE Healthcare.

I was also totally into health and fitness, and getting into this space
enabled me to learn and harness the power of social media.

Fast forward, I finished my MBA and PMP and got recruited into a
boutique web design company as the VP of Sales & Marketing. There I
used my experience to build out the sales and marketing departments.
Prior to starting website projects ranged between $10k to $20k.

All of this happened because I... HUSTLED,
GRINDED,
EXECUTED!

However, near the end of my tenure, I had sold $200k websites to large publicly traded companies!

A light bulb went off and I realized that I can do this! Rather than making someone else rich, I then decided that it was time… it was time to take the plunge and so I started up an independent consulting gig, which quickly became a six-figure business… I was able to start hiring a team within 3 months and moved into a shared office space.
“I then realized… Damn… I’m now a CEO! I now have a team of experts and our very own office (with a foosball table)!”
Everything in life that we experience, helps mold us and takes us down a path to what makes us who we are today.

I’m big on strategy, processes and operations which are vital to scaling a
business. Even more importantly, I realized that sales and digital
marketing (fuel sales) were vital to building up capital and cash flow.

Yes, CASH is still king!

If you’ve come this far and read my story, I can see that you’re an action-
taker. Carve out your path to success.

I’m passionate about helping
Consultants, Coaches, Entrepreneurs, and Small & Medium Sized Businesses excel by
using what I know as an agency owner, and bring them the latest and
greatest when it comes to digital marketing.

Much of the secret sauce that I share is
used by large corporations today!
