Fellow Entrepreneur,

Thank you so much for your interest in Founders Board.

This program, if you’re admitted, will help you scale your business so you can live the life you want.

The purpose of Founders Board is simple…

To bring intelligent, successful, like-minded entrepreneurs together to process challenges…celebrate wins…exchange ideas…and hold one another accountable to achieving the goals we’ve set for ourselves.

When Roland Frasier, Richard Lindner, and I started Founders Board, our mission was to create a private advisory group for entrepreneurs and CEOs…the ones who traditionally go without a formal advisory board…the ones who tend to “go at it alone”…the ones like us when we got started.

A place where serious entrepreneurs come to truly scale their companies…

And where they stay to discover new strategies, continue to grow their team and themselves, form lasting relationships built on trust, and reach their full potential.

It’s a space for those who’ve earned the right to design their legacy to come together and level up using the same proven Advisory Board structure that all great companies need to succeed.

With Founders Board you get both the “HOW” and the “WHO” you need to scale to the next level using our unique 3 M approach…

1. Models: We provide you with our proven systems, tested tools, and repeatable frameworks.

Examples of scalable models you will access include:

  • Value Engine Mapping: How To Visually Map Your Company’s Core Business Processes So You Can Optimize and Scale Them
  • Company Playbooks: How To Document Your Most Critical Tasks, Clone Your Best People, & Build Scalable Teams
  • Cashless Acquisitions: How To Acquire Businesses & Assets with Little or No Money Out of Pocket
  • Profit-First Budgets: How To Set & Monitor Expense Ratios To Find Hidden Cash In Your Business
  • Company Scorecards: Track the Metrics that Matter & Create a Single Source of Truth that Aligns Your Team to the Same Growth Targets
  • High-Output Teams: Clarify Each Team Members’ Roles & Responsibilities & Create a Culture of Accountability & Trust

We add at least 1 new scalable model each month, based on your business needs.

2. Mentors: You get access to experienced entrepreneurs who are where you want to be and can tell you how to get there.

Each member will have a personal Scalable Business Advisor assigned to them — this advisor will help make sure your projects are completed on time. They will be there to answer questions you have — and help you overcome the inevitable roadblocks that will come up.

Scalable Business Advisors are required to show multiple years of proven experience as an entrepreneur or as an executive leader in an entrepreneurial company to be chosen. They then must complete extensive training to work with members and be licensed to deploy our proprietary tools and frameworks. The selection process is rigorous because we strive to provide you with only the best mentors.

3. Mastermind: You’ll join a peer-supported learning group of fellow wealth creators serving as your Board of Advisors.

Your Advisory Board will be there to help you…

  • Stay accountable to your goals (monthly check-ins)
  • Breakthrough bottlenecks (weekly momentum coaching sessions)
  • Process new opportunities and “shiny objects” (quarterly board meetings)
  • Commiserate on the losses…

And most importantly…celebrate your wins!!

Your Advisory Board will be made up of 10-15 members led by a “been-there-done-that” Scalable Business Advisor. We create and fill your personal Advisory Board based on business stage, industry, and time zone availability.

Our current Founders Board members have seen some incredible results.

Founders Board has given me clarity and a way to communicate well with my team. I have used all of the systems and processes, and we have implemented them as a team. So far this year it's led to 62% growth in revenue and 96% growth in profits!
Kimberly Holmes
CEO, MarriageHelper
I set a goal to move my family to Costa Rica for 2 months. Developing our OS to the point where I could leave for 2 months, and then actually moving, was one of the greatest things I could have done. We just broke our old Q2 and YTD revenue record while I've been out of the office!
Josh Taylor
CEO, Product EVO
Growth last quarter was 218% over the previous year and we are breaking all kinds of sales records, but more importantly, we are making serious profit! Our biggest growth has been a direct reflection of the strategies and OS put in place as a result of this program.
Kay Francis
CMO, Francis Plumbing

Their results are incredible — yours might be different. The more you put into Founders Board, the more you’ll get out of it.

That’s why we are very specific about who we let join Founders Board. The right members…

  • Are Founders and/or CEOs of established businesses with a minimum 7-figure revenue momentum (no newbies)
  • Have a desire to scale (not merely survive)
  • Have foundational infrastructure in place…just not fully optimized (team, systems, etc.)
  • Are willing to commit the time (to get the most out of it, you should be willing to commit a minimum of 2-3 hours per week to the program)
  • Aren’t “too cool for school” (this is a safe place to ask questions, experiment with ideas, get feedback, and generally learn and grow without fear of judgment or rejection)
  • Appreciate the value of relationships
  • Are motivated by freedom…not just money
  • Are financially capable

We are NOT looking for…

  • Startups or pre-revenue companies still trying to find product-market fit or proof of concept
  • Freelancers or small, “one-person operations” who want to stay “small” and “one-person”
  • Franchisees or captive retailers who can’t control their products, pricing, or promotions

If it sounds like I’m trying to scare you off, that’s exactly what I’m doing. We only want the handful of real movers and shakers in the group…the “A” players and future “A” players that will lead their industries for the next 10 years.

The investment for a standard Founders Board membership is $2,400/mo (if you qualify and choose to join Founders Board X, the investment is $3,800/mo), which is less than the cost of one crappy employee. The required membership term is 1 year.

This investment is non-negotiable. And frankly, if it seems expensive or out of reach, that’s probably a good sign that you’re not a good fit for this group.

That may sound harsh, but think about it…

If you have an active business, you waste way more than that on employees you don’t need and mistakes that go unfixed. And that’s just the stuff you know about! Throw in the opportunity cost and growth potential, and the dues become a total no-brainer.

Face it: You don’t need more idealistic theories. You need proven actionable systems to scale your business.

You can develop these yourself, but what will it cost you in valuable time, lost opportunity, and lost profits. That’s an expensive learning curve…right?

So now I have a question for you…

Would you like to be considered for membership?

If so, fill out this short form to begin the application process.

Our officers and advisors will review and accept the top applicants to join us.

From there, you will be required to place your membership deposit and be officially welcomed to the family.

If by chance you DO make it into Founders Board, it will likely change your business life forever, and you just might change mine.

I look forward to that.


Ryan Deiss
Chairman, Founders Board
