"Have you ever looked in the mirror and thought, "This business was supposed to bring me freedom, not become a stress-inducing prison of my own making?" If so, you are not alone.

The Stakes are High. Most Startups Fail before they ever start to turn a profit. Even proven businesses fail to execute on strategic initiatives 67-90% percent of the time. The average business has a 15% success rate at achieving strategic objectives.

Most entrepreneurs think they just need more leads. There are a few steps that come before that to actually get your business on track to grow.

Many business owners are not even sure of what they should be doing next and they know they are not executing as effectively as they should be.

They are spending too much time working in the business and they feel alone running it. Isolation is the enemy of excellence and in isolation, many entrepreneurs begin to question if they have what it takes and if they will ever achieve the dreams they had for their business when it first started out. They have a vivid picture of their dream life but don't know how to get there.

Buddy Rathmell - Founder, 4BAM

Buddy was hired by Arthur Andersen Consulting to work for a Fortune 250 in Scranton, PA shortly after finishing college and getting married. 2 1/2 years later he started his own consulting firm working for multiple Fortune 500 companies. A lover of books, systems, people (especially entrepreneurs) he has created a Mastermind to help entrepreneurs and their businesses. Nothing helps entrepreneurs and their businesses faster than a Mastermind. If you are looking to scale and simplify your business so that you can fulfill your God-given calling 4BAM is the community for you.

I've been on both sides of the fence. I have experienced complete chaos in my life and business. A number of years ago, I was losing money in two businesses in two different countries at the same time. I had no hope and I was not sure if my marriage was going to make it or if I was going to be able to afford to send my kids to college if it did. In the end, I lost $250,000 and had to let 15 employees go and figure out how to pay $100,000 back to my investors.

Right now I am operating on the other side of the fence with both my business and my nonprofit (Stop Slavery) and I want you to experience that too. Since getting back on our feet financially we have taken the kids on trips to Europe and multiple beach trips in different countries.

I took two months off for the first time in my life and we took on the kids on an extended vacation to Japan, Hawaii, and a lake house at Smith Mountain Lake in Virginia (to be honest the kids and my wife left the lake 2 days early because they felt like we over-vacayed in their lingo) and then capped ioff with a 24 day road trip across the United States. We have be able to send all three kids to college and it's nice to not even worry about the college bills it all. It feels great not only being in a better place but helping others to get to that place in their life and business as well.

"Buddy is an amazing facilitator which is why I bring him to help me with my own team each and every year. He has moved from advisor to friend and I actually consider him an extension of my own team. This year, in addition to the team building, strategic planning, and Birkman consultations, I asked him to emcee an event and give the opening address on the final day. He always delivers. I can't recommend him highly enough."

Mark Plummer

Training Director


"Buddy is unrelenting in pushing you to be the best version of yourself. Through Buddy, I learned the best way to serve the people I encounter is to know myself well, accept those giftings, and live them out to the fullest, and by this, those surrounding me will be blessed. If it wasn’t for this lesson I’m not sure my business Liv Thai would exist today. Buddy cares deeply about helping others hone in and be what is right for them and he has the systems and tools to get you there. I have a feeling “4BAM” will help more than just your business!"


"We initially brought Buddy in to do a half-day coaching training session with our executive leadership team. We were so impressed, we brought him back for a 1-day annual planning meeting. He was able to draw out of us in five hours what we had not been able to do ourselves in 6 years. Our team was reignited by the new strategy to reach our vision and implemented those changes over the last year. You won't go wrong bringing in Buddy for your Annual & Quarterly Strategy Meetings."

Real quick just to be sure we are on the same page what is a mastermind group?

You hear the term thrown around a lot these days. Sometimes mastermind is used for someone who is really smart in an area. Most often in the podcasting and online course world, I hear it used because someone thinks they have great resources to share with you in a certain area or they are bringing people on to their show to deliver great information.

A mastermind group is often used for a sort of group coaching in a particular skill. Those things are all great but they are actually not a mastermind group.

A mastermind group is when people come together to work on their life and business (a not so secret secret is that your business blocks often stem from issues in your life) in a group of like-minded individuals so that everyone is growing and moving forward.

You get feedback, ideas, and encouragement on your biggest business issues from people who are trying to achieve the same goals.
