Hi, I'm Edgar Brown👋🏽

This is my online home where I share my learnings about startups, marketing, and personal development. More importantly, I aim to share candid experiences building startups and overcoming personal challenges so people can learn what entrepreneurship really looks like behind the scenes.

About me 🚀

I'm a marketer, coach, and entrepreneur based in Toronto, Canada🇨🇦.

As a growth and GTM strategist, I work with mission-driven startups to scale their ventures from the ground up. I also coach founders, operators and emerging leaders to help them achieve their goals and grow at the pace of their companies.

I have been featured in publications like Forbes, Les Affaires and Mars Discovery District for my work in startups, tech, and entrepreneurship.

My approach to life 🙏🏽

I believe in taking a purpose-driven approach to all aspects of life.

Through my experiences as a startup founder and operator, I've found that committing to a personal "North Star" and executing on it through a focused, structured, yet balanced approach is necessary to achieving your personal and professional goals while creating real impact in the world.

To explore this concept further and publicly share my learnings, I write regularly on Twitter and my monthly newsletter where I share my reflections about the principles, systems, and habits that drive holistic success.
