Will you accept and become the trailblazer you were born to be?

We are in need of defiant souls, those courageous enough to reject the status quo, leave the work-to-survive world behind and forge their own path.

But when it comes to getting paid to serve the world with your unique gifts, there's one endeavor that separates the valiantly triumphant from the never ending wanderers.

This one thing is so important, so critical, that it can mean the difference between forging a path directly to your legacy work or a life where you're constantly wandering, never quite sure where you're going or when you'll get there.

Of course, I'm talking about your Foundational Training.

Through this training, you mature from operating as an amateur to operating as a professional. You stop working from a place of fear (working to survive) and start working from a place of courage. Work becomes an expression of your deepest purpose.

However, because most people neglect this important initiation period, they never know where they're going.

  • They don't know what their passion is.
  • They don't know how to present their gifts in a way where their value is clearly seen.
  • They don't know what tribe or community they're meant to serve.

This Foundational Training is so important, but most people brush it to the side. They want to burn the maps and do it their way.

But before you blaze a trail, you must first know the terrain intimately. Before you can improvise, you must be trained in the traditional rules of engagement.

Trailblazer is a Six Month, in the field training program that's designed to help you move from indecision to certainty about your path. Each month we give you a very specific mission with training, maps, checklists and case studies to help you move closer to the final culmination: Getting paid to be you.

But before I dive in to everything you get, let's address the two core challenges: direction and a road map.

In order to actually make this pursuit successful, you need to have remarkable clarity in two areas:

  1. You need to know your No End Path. This involves your passion, your unique gifts to the world and who you wish to serve.
  2. You need to know your message. Without a clear, concise message you'll struggle to set yourself apart from the masses.
  3. You need to know with absolute certainty that the path you're on is the right one for you.

Without a focused direction for your work, you'll end up spinning your wheels. You need to know with absolute certainty that the path your on is the right one for you.

Your message is the fuel behind what you do; it's a rallying cry for your tribe. It gets you excited, it's magnetic and it attracts the right type of person.

These two things are critical to your success. When they work together, a beautiful symphony of passion and focus is composed.

If you don't have this part nailed down, it's easy to run in circles, stuck on a road to nowhere, never making any real progress with your business. Trailblazer solves that problem by giving you complete certainty in your idea before you start with a comprehensive idea-testing scorecard.


image4image21

Direction without a well-illustrated map for how to get there is useless. When you're clear about your world-changing idea, you need a structured plan to help you implement it.

You need to put a foundation under your castle in the sky. You need a practical strategy to accomplish your vision.

Here are a few of the ways we help you with that:

  • Each month of Trailblazer has a core mission that keeps you focused and on target for the month. Because focus is so important to us, we never give you more than one mission.
  • We give you step-by-step training and checklists that guide you through the work.
  • Case studies are included with your training, so you never have to guess how to implement what you've learned.

All of these elements (and more) are combined in a unique formula that influences your success.

A solid program without the false promises. We include battle-tested business training.

I'm not here to give you a bunch of sweet-sounding advice that entertains you. Everything I'm about to show you has been tested and proven in the field.

What exactly does that mean?

I have a track-record of helping 93% of my clients build profitable businesses and quit their jobs within a year.

And I built a profitable business before I started helping others.

I'm not a "guru" trying to teach you things he hasn't done himself. All of what you get here is backed up by results. If it doesn't get results, we don't include it.

Take for instance this example: This program is delivered over the course of six months. You can speed it up or slow it down at any time you like, but we've found that six months tends to be the perfect amount of time for someone to both find their direction and build their following to launch a product.

We could have done this course in 4-6 weeks, but we knew that would be giving you an unrealistic expectation.

This is just one of the ways we give you business strategies that are proven, rather than selling you false promises.

A few short years ago, I wasn't living the dream. I was bouncing from one job to the next doing work I hated, and I longed to create something different for myself.

I yearned to be the master of my own time, and I dreamt about what I would do with my freedom. There was a deep purpose burning a hole in my gut. I knew that I was going to go crazy if I didn't let it out.

Then somewhere along the way... I lost the ability to do things that I had no desire to do.

And even though I knew what I didn't want, I didn't have a clear road map to follow to create something different. I knew I couldn't keep doing what I was doing, I just didn't know how to change where I was.

I was just tired of living on someone else's terms, which is why I decided to create my own freedom and follow my own path to self employment.

I had absolutely no idea what I was doing and I made a TON of mistakes. But a year later, with a few bruises and scrapes, I stuck my self-appointed flag in the ground and declared my personal sovereignty.

But I realized it didn't have to be this hard, grueling and stressful. If I had someone to guide me, I could have blazed a trail toward freedom much faster.

So I've decided to reveal everything here.

I really hate it when you buy a product and the person teaching it doesn't tell you how they do things. One of the main reasons I invest in training is so I can get inside that person's brain and see behind the curtains of what other successful people do.

So I've decided to share with you all the details about how I personally run my business. In other words, I reveal the details of my business; nothing will be held back.

One of the ways I'll be doing that is by giving you the battle-tested scorecard I use to test all of my offers. Nothing I do gets released without passing this litmus test, and it ensures that my launch will be a success before I put in a lot of hard work.

I'll also be sharing with you my product launch checklist and product creation system that helps me create content painlessly and rapidly.

Testimonials

With trailblazer I could focus into the essentials – create a program according to my deep beliefs, motivate my subscribers and launch a product that gave me real fun to design. In the course sales page it was written – Earn at least 1k in six months – thanks to Jonathan’s invaluable help and insights I could make 4k in seven weeks.
--Lourenco Azevedo, Portugal

I’ve tried starting my business online for a couple years, but it always ended up fizzling out and getting nowhere… Until now. As I mentioned on our final Trail-Blazer call, my biggest takeaway for the course was the group. It was unique in the sense that everyone was coming as readers of your site and ready to start making money doing things they loved. We already had so much in common. I know that I will look back years from now and remember- this was the beginning of my success. I’m very excited for the future. I am honored to be a part of a group of such remarkable people.
--Harley Roxanne, Philadelphia

"Before I signed on with Jonathan, I had a stagnant blog, a mailing list of four, a dream, and no confidence that I would ever achieve it. With his help, in six short months, I got clear on what I have to offer the world, learned to attract my right people, built a business, and quit my job. I’ve earned over $9000 so far, and I haven’t even launched my flagship product yet!

Jonathan gave me two invaluable things: solid guidance on what really works, and the confidence to make things happen.

We learn best by experience, and that's what you're going to get

Theory and "scenario training" is all well and good, but it's through seeing examples and real experience that creates true learning and breakthrough.

That's what Trailblazer gives you: a backstage pass straight to my business to help move you forward. I'll always give you tested action steps over fluff and theory.

Business without purpose is lame; Purpose without strategy is dumb.

As great as strategy and action steps are, they're nothing without the meaning and purpose behind them. So each step of the way, we're going to be drilling in the reason why all this stuff matters and how it can help you create a more enjoyable and meaningful business.

We'll be distilling the highest leverage strategies so you can make a profit while making a difference.

There are people actively seeking what you have to offer. Right now.

They're just waiting for you to create it.

I'm not advocating the "build it and they will come" approach. I believe that's a short-sighted strategy. However, it's incredibly effective to build something because people are actively seeking and waiting for you to give them a solution.

Yes, there are those people out there. And they need the medicine you have to give.

It's just up to you to create something that the world deeply needs.

Each month of Trailblazer has a very specific mission; you complete that mission you get results. It's as simple as that.

Giving back matters to us

Baked into your membership is $5 donation to a trailblazer in a developing country seeking to create their own small business. We've decided to go with Kiva.org since they actually lend the money via micro-finance and encourage responsibility.

With your membership, you're automatically helping another person create their own freedom in a small way.

Forging your way to getting paid to be who you are is a journey of a lifetime. Do you have what it takes?

Of course you want to create your own freedom. But we all want to make sure that going off the path and blazing our own trail is actually going to work. It's scary to step into the unknown.

Maybe you're willing to do whatever it takes, but you don't want to waste your time getting lost in the thick forest of what doesn't matter. Trailblazer will help guide you to following your own path, and making sure you only do the few activities that will really make a difference in your success.

This journey isn't for the faint of heart. But you've made it this far (perhaps for a reason). I know you have what it takes.

Just choose your option below, and we'll see you along the trail.

"What caught my attention the most was Jonathan’s confidence in my ability to manifest what I wanted. He dove straight into what it was that I truly desired and then proceeded to create an explicit plan in which to make it happen, without any moment of doubt in my ability to do so.

One of my desires was to have clients to work with one-on-one in the circus arts and personal training. Prior to the session, I didn’t think it was possible to not only get clients but to also have them pay the price I desired. Before our session I had 0 clients. Within less than a month of working with Jonathan, I have 5 clients a week paying the price I want.

Last year I had the privilege of working with Jonathan in his Trailblazer program. Jonathan and I were acquaintances prior to my start in Trailblazer so I already knew he was a class A guy.

I figured that the program was gong to be good but I didn't realize just how much Trailblazer would help me in my business.

Thanks to the in-depth instruction, focus on personal reflection through worksheets, and interactive community, I am not only a better business partner with a clear vision for our company, but I also have more confidence in what I'm doing.

I can't recommend Trailblazer enough. You rock, Jonathan!
--Ryan Hurst

Have questions? We've got answers.

Can I do this while working at a job, while going to school, or if I have a family?

Yes, absolutely. I did it and so do many of our members. In fact, it's actually an advantage since it will make you that much more focused on only doing the critical things that matter in your business.

How many hours a week will this take?

Doing the course itself takes about two hours a week. You can easily get it done in a weekend.

When are the mentorship calls? Are they recorded?

The mentorship calls are your designated place to get coaching and one-on-one advice from me. Because it's important that we make them accessible, we stagger the calls on various days and times to make sure we get something scheduled that works for everyone. We have an international membership, so we try to make them as accessible as possible. All of the calls are recorded and posted in the member's area for later listening.

What if I wanted to do the course faster or slower?

No problem! Just send us an email and we'll get you taken care of.

Does this only work for online businesses?

No. Many of our members use Trailblazer to create thriving and profitable offline businesses. Email us if you'd like examples: support@paidtoexist.com

Do I need a bunch of tech skills to get started?

Nope, you've got everything you need. And we have a very friendly support forum where our members regularly help each other with any challenges they're facing, whether it's with installing WordPress or finding someone to do it for you.

Does this work if I have an existing business?

Yes, this absolutely compliments and builds upon established businesses. Many of our members use Trailblazer to create thriving and profitable offline businesses.
