Father. Author. Speaker. Trainer.
I always love the "About Me" page on websites... they're such a joy to read, especially when it's written as if it were in the third person.
So in the interest of keeping it real, I'll skip all the nonsensical third party stuff.
Hi, My name is Tim Erway, but my friends call me T.J.
I'm 41 years old, live in Satellite Beach, Florida and blessed to be a father of four awesome kids. I have an amazing lady in my life, who somehow I’ve convinced to put up with all my shenanigans. 😉
I enjoy practicing martial arts, which I’ve done for most of my life, and for the last 14 years I've been studying the art of Aikido.
What I love about martial arts is it forces you to be in the present moment and aware of your body and surroundings. Much of my philosophy and approach to business is derived from my martial arts practice.
I also like riding motorcycles, snowboarding, offload racing and anything that involves speed and precision. As with martial arts, it requires your full attention in the present moment... and of course, there's the adrenaline rush... a combination of joy, exhilaration, fear, and pleasure that just makes you feel alive.
My specialty (and joy) is in launching, growing and scaling successful businesses, which I've done a few times now. There's nothing quite like seeing your ideas come into fruition and making a positive impact in people's lives in the process.
And what I'm most proud of is I've had the privilege and opportunity to mentor dozens of amazing entrepreneurs and help them build their dream business.
In fact, maybe that's the reason you're reading this right now...
Perhaps you're starting a new business or looking to grow an existing business and wondering if I'm the real deal and if it's worth it to pay attention to me.
I think that's a fair question. And that's why even though this is my "about me" page.... this is actually more about YOU.
Because there's really only one very special type of persona I can help...
I’ve always believed our highest purpose, as human beings, is the act of creating.
The painter brings her vision to life with brush strokes to canvas. The musician, with composing and playing music that speaks to his soul. The writer draws inspiration from the depths of her imagination.
All of these various forms of creating, of making known the unknown are done for the sheer joy of creating. That is the way of the artist... to make something from nothing.
Then there’s a very special and rare type of person who calls him/herself an entrepreneur.
We answer this call to create in a very different way than the painter, the musician or the writer. Ours is a calling to bring forth valuable creations to solve problems, fulfill desires and make people’s lives better.
And the reason we are so rare is because it takes a special kind of courage to be an entrepreneur. It requires breaking free from the herd mentality, which is no small feat.
We know conformity breeds mediocrity, thus we are unwilling to sacrifice our dreams and goals on the alter of social acceptance.
We don’t let other people’s doubt and negativity keep us from pursuing our dreams...
We don’t shirk away from tough problems...
We aren’t swayed when confronted with seemingly insurmountable obstacles...
And we don’t quit when we get knocked down.
Because we’re driven by the understanding that nobody ever achieved any worth-while goal who did not, at one time or other, find themselves with at least one foot hanging over the precipice… and on the brink of failure.
We are compelled by a grander vision… a bigger purpose than ourselves.
It is this higher calling that makes us get back up, push the envelope to the limit and forge ahead when most would throw in the towel.
We are Entrepreneurs.
In every stage of business, entrepreneurs are confronted by a unique set of challenges. And the way to break through to the next level depends on the stage you're currently in.
Each level requires different tools, methodologies, systems and most importantly... a different way of thinking about your business.

The start-up entrepreneur has a unique set of challenges...
They often find themselves frozen and overwhelmed by the sheer volume of information... and there's no shortage of (often conflicting) advice from so-called "experts."
Most start-up entrepreneurs spend far too long in this phase, trying to get the product "perfect", spending a fortune on creating a pretty website, printing business cards, setting up corporate entities and so on.
This keeps them stuck in perpetual learning mode... and very little progress is made toward the most important thing.
Namely, creating their M.V.P. (minimum viable product) and making their first profitable sale.
Does this sound familiar?
If so, your opportunity at this stage is to dial in your marketing message and attract the right audience to achieve a minimum critical mass of customers and clients.
This is equally true whether you're selling something intangible like a service, a software solution, or a digital product - or you're selling a tangible product like a widget, potion or gadget.
There's a very specific methodology I've used to launch several businesses to the 7-figure level, and beyond in as little as 12-18 months.
It has worked for me, and several dozen of my students, clients and friends in multiple different industries, and it can work for you too.
Click on the button below and answer the short, easy questions to get specialized training and advice for launching your business, specifically customized for your situation.
Congratulations, you're in business. You've broken through the first barrier, which is making your first profitable sale... and that's pretty darn awesome!
There's just one problem.
You're not satisfied because you're not growing as fast as you'd like.
Maybe you're struggling with hitting critical mass, because you haven't quite cracked the code yet when it comes to acquiring new customers consistently, reliably, predictably, and most important of all...
To do so profitably at scale.
Maybe you're getting some results with your advertising, but you don't have a strong ascension funnel to multiply your profits by getting your customers to buy with more frequency and at higher price points.
Perhaps you only have lower priced products, and you're missing out on the majority of your profits and income because you don't have any premium value offers.
Or maybe you're struggling with getting traffic, converting that traffic into leads and/or customers and you've hit a plateau in your income.
It doesn't matter if you're selling widgets, gadgets, lotions, or potions...
Or, if you're selling intangible products like information, coaching, software or a service of some sort.
To survive in this competitive marketplace, you must have a multitiered, multifaceted growth plan that addresses each of the Three Hyper-Growth Leverage Points.
These leverage points are universal and work for every business. However, they are applied differently depending on your business type, product pricing, market factors and many other variables.

All your persistence and perseverance has really started to pay off. You've come a long way both personally and professionally.
As a business owner who's reached the upper echelon of success, you should feel proud of what you've been able to accomplish.
As far as your friends and family are concerned, you've "made it."
But not everything is as perfect as it may seem from the outside...
Depending on your company size and business type, you're probably beginning to feel the strain.
If you've been between $1 million and $5 million per year in annual sales for any length of time, you're starting to feel trapped by your business. Even though you're making sales, that doesn't necessarily translate into cash flow.
In fact, there are times you worry about being able to make payroll... and so you push harder... you do more of what has worked for you in the past.
But you're tired of "rescuing" your company and you feel like everything falls on your shoulders. You're feeling trapped in your business, but you don't know what to do to get unstuck.
You've heard you need to "work on the business, not in it", but how can you do that when you have so many fires to put out?
If you're between $5 million to $10 million in annual sales, you're starting to see your systems become strained and you're having difficulty finding and recruiting talented A-players to fill those critical roles within your organization.
It can get pretty darn chaotic, and keeping the team aligned and focused is a challenge.
Whatever level you're currently at, maybe you're starting to realize deep down, that what got you to where you are today simply won't allow you to break through to that next level.
Your team, your systems and your business model will need to change... maybe even drastically.
But where should you start? You're already overworked and it's hard enough to find the time to read these words, let alone learn all the "stuff" I will need to do to break through to that next level.
Maybe you're starting to question the reasons you started your business. After all, this isn't exactly the "dream life" you imagined it would be.
When you started, you wanted to be in control of your life. You wanted more freedom, so you could spend more time doing the things you enjoy doing, with the people who matter to you.
And that begs the question...
Is it really possible to re-engineer my business to sell it, scale it or OWN it passively?
ANSWER: Yes, it is... and yes, you can.
And the good news is, there are some universal principles, strategies and methodologies for doing so and they work for every business, no matter the size or industry. However, there is no one size fits all approach to employing these strategies.
That brings me to the big orange button below...
When you click on it, you'll be asked a few short, easy questions. After answering these questions, it will generate you a unique business scale plan specifically designed specifically for your goals and situation. Go ahead and click on it now... you know you want too. 😉
