The name Mile One is rooted in the belief that executing the fundamentals is the foundation of success, no matter how big or small the goal. It’s easy to focus on the proverbial “summit shot” of business: Glorious mountain views, the wind blowing in your hair, and no visible blisters.
And yet, transformation – and, by extension, success – only happens in the day-to-day, mile-by-mile, blister-upon-blister process of making unremarkable good decisions to move the business forward, and then showing up the next day and doing it again. These small moments don’t earn the glory, but they’re the only thing that gets us where we want to go.
It starts with Mile One. Even before that, it starts by getting the first step right, and then taking the next right step and the next right one after that.
Take the first step. Better yet, let’s take it together.

If you’re a normal business owner, eventually you’ll find yourself in a place where you feel like you’re running on a treadmill: you pour more of your time, energy, and money into your business, but despite your heroic efforts this year doesn’t look much different than the year before, and you KNOW that you company is capable of more. Good news: it doesn’t need to be this way!
