Increase Your Income as an LGBT Entrepreneur

Thrive as an LGBT entrepreneur

How do you succeed without giving up what makes you unique? Often an LGBT entrepreneur struggles with authenticity in their business lives, believing that they must ‘tone it down’ in order to succeed. But your uniqueness is what allows you to shine and thrive, increase your income, and achieve the highest level of success.

How to become an LGBT entrepreneur

Caleb and Matthew are partners in life and business. Together, they founded LGBT Entrepreneur to support business owners via programs and one-on-one coaching. The duo is on a mission to create an environment in which LGBTQ entrepreneurs can grow and prosper, making an impact in their community and the world at large. Caleb and Matthew started their own businesses at the same time, an immigration law firm and bodywork coaching venture respectively. They employed much trial and error before finding systems that worked, and LGBT Entrepreneur emerged to help others avoid the struggle and ultimately lift up the LGBTQ community.

Today Caleb and Matthew chat with the Debt Free Guys™ about their area of expertise as coaches, what to expect in an Increase Your Income strategy session, and why they include a one-on-one component with every offering at LGBTQ Entrepreneur.
