Hi - I'm Zach Strauss, Founder of Apex Collective.
My ask when you look for courses, consulting, or a community is that you verify the person has actually grown a small business successfully.
Partnering with the right people to help you grow your company or improve your knowledge is one of the most important decisions you'll make.
Why leave that decision to chance?
Isn't it amazing how many business growth "gurus, experts, and more" are out there in the world? Yet, when you ask them to prove that they've grown a small business, let alone to7 figures, they ghost you or can't provide the data?
Well, here's just a snapshot of what I've done in my previous career before starting Apex Collective.
Built One Of The Fastest Growing Private Companies In The United States
I founded and grew a company that was nationally recognized as one of the fastest-growing privately held companies in the United States by Inc. Magazine. We were the 998th fastest-growing company in the U.S. and the 95th in the Midwest.
When it comes to building a company that scales, I know what it takes.
Built The Fastest Growing Small Business In Cincinnati, Ohio.
Not only did I secure a spot in the esteemed Cincinnati Fast 55 awards, but my company also emerged as the winner in our category. We were also the 4th fastest-growing company across all categories. We were also the fastest-growing company in Dayton, Ohio.
Among companies generating revenues between $1 million and $5 million, my company was the fastest-growing company in the Cincinnati region.
Scaled an organization from 0 to 25+ employees in 7+ states
Organizational development, culture building even when remote, hiring the right talent, firing the wrong talent, and more.
I've had to navigate it all and can pass the playbook on to you.
Was invited to become a Forbes Business Council Member
I was invited to join the ranks of respected leaders and executives who are selected for the Forbes Business Council based on the depth and diversity of experience in leadership, management, customer engagement, technology & growth.
Why Create Apex Collective?
Hi - I'm Zach Strauss, the Founder of Apex Collective.
For the past 6 years, I've run a mid-7-figure business based on leveraging the latest sales & marketing breakthroughs and cutting-edge science...I've consulted, coached, and executed sales & marketing strategies for over 100+ companies ranging from small businesses to the Fortune 500.
Now I’ve reached a point in my career where it’s time to give back to small business owners and their sales & marketing teams...at scale.
By sharing what actually works in sales & marketing, and not what is total BS.
And here’s what I’ve discovered. There are 3 paths you can take today, right now...
You can go it alone – the slowest and most painful path to success, where you can waste YEARS on trial and error...
You can watch a bunch of free YouTube videos – but can you really trust these people?? Do they have a proven track record you can see?
Or you can trust an expert – someone who has been where you are now...and built multiple, thriving businesses and consulted entrepreneurs and companies towards life-changing success.
There are a few of those people. Some will help you massively. Some will take your money & you’ll never hear from them again.
My goal is to share what I learned over the last 10+ years and condense them into bite-sized pieces of content. Beyond the community and coaching, that's exactly what you're getting when you join Apex Collective. My goal is to have every single one of our members increase their sales pipeline, marketing leads, or revenue by 7-figures this year.
To put it in a different way, I've been trying to combine...
What I Love To Do
I love sales & marketing to my core, and I love helping small business owners grow their businesses.
What I'm Good At
I've had the good fortune of being able to solve complex sales & marketing problems on short notice for a variety of businesses.
What The World Needs
I know that I wish I would have had access to something like Apex Collective when I first started out. My hope is others do as well.
