Get to Know Epiphany Courses

our passion is giving you tools to succeed

Our co-founders have a combined 60+ years of boots-on-the-ground business experience. we’ve worked with both new and established businesses.

It’s increasingly difficult for business leaders to discern between fact and fiction, magic pills from best practice. Especially during the first few years.

We’ve seen too many courses geared to subject matter experts or aspiring practitioners and not enough to influence and guide decision-makers and their teams to effect change in their organization.

You want to know what to do. And when to do it. (Or if it’s even a good idea in the first place.) That doesn’t require a 10-hour course. You also can’t get that from a blog, and you don’t have time for a 2-day workshop (that’s likely an upsell to a program).

What we offer is different.

We honor your time and give you succinct, targeted video and audio courses so you can make the best decisions for your business, including budgets and timelines to help you work through determining when (or if) to implement.

If there’s a course you’d like, contact us and we’ll add it to our roadmap. 

Our mission is to provide critical concepts succinctly so you can make the best business decisions. If we do this, we’re confident you’ll come back.
