Rise 25 features designated ‘Sherpas’ – kind of like the Sharks on ‘Shark Tank’ – which are highly successful entrepreneurs who have been to the mountain top and have come back to help others get there.  Sherpas are present at the retreats or on private webinars to provide specific feedback and advice to Rise 25 members — advice which they often would charge thousands of dollars to private clients.

In addition, we welcome VIP guests – accomplished entrepreneurs of significant achievement – to various dinners, excursions, and retreats. You never know who is going to show up when!

Kevin Waldron: from $0 to $24 million/year and 240+ employees

About Kevin Waldron

Kevin Waldron immigrated to the U.S. from Scotland in the mid-1980s. Without a college degree, the only work he could find was with a disaster restoration company — literally cleaning up other people’s messes — where his boss was a raging alcoholic. After watching his boss make money while drinking all day, Waldron decided “if he can do it, I can do it better.”

Starting with a shoestring budget and just an 800 square foot warehouse space, and with no real business experience, Waldron grew his company into a regional powerhouse with 5 offices and over 200 employees and $24M a year in sales. He credited his business coach of 17 years, Patricia McDade, with helping him to grow the company.

After he finally sold the company in 2010, Waldron became a business coach himself. Today, Waldron does leadership coaching, helping business owners with sales between $2 million and $10 million scale upwards to $20 million and beyond. One of his recent coaching programs costs entrepreneurs $50,000 per person to participate in.
