An Online Mastermind Community Specifically Designed to Help Fathers Validate, Build and Grow a Business without Sacrificing the Family!
“You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.” - Jim Rohn
Fathers: Expecting Dads | Pro Dads | Rookie Dads Sidepreneurs? Jack of All Trades? Freedom Seekers? Freelancers? Small Business Owners?
Being an entrepreneur, alone, is challenging. Being an entrepreneur with kids… Well!
But it is absolutely possible and with the support of like minded dads just like yourself the time is now!
As dads we are constantly wrestling between being “responsible” and the entrepreneurial spirit that is burning inside of us all!
Between following the traditional path depicted by society - "the golden handcuffs” and burning the ships and blazing our on destiny. We want FREEDOM! but the thought of failing with a family is unimaginable, paralyzing and lonely.
I know those feelings all to well.
You don’t have to do it alone! What if you had the support, accountability, mastermind training, knowledge and relationships that make a difference… all in one community?
I’ve been on a mission, the last 2 years, to helping extraordinary fathers who are or want to be fully engaged in every aspect of their child(ren) lives figure out how to pursue their dreams of entrepreneurship in order to gain FREEDOM (i.e. more time, more money, the lifestyle they want for their family, etc…) while make a dent in the universe and leaving a legacy behind.
- Wolfgang von Goethe
What matters most to me and everything that I do is for my family.
I am married to a gorgeous NICU nurse and we have three beautiful daughters under the age of 8. I know in no time they will be off to college so my time with them, right now!, means more than anything.
Who am I? Well I like to think of myself as a Fortune 100 Corporate Dad gone ROGUE! After 14+ years as a highly successful manager at Intel Corporation I decided, enough was enough, it was time to stop working on someone else's dream and start working on my own. It took me almost a year and a half of self-exploration, numerous failed attempts, and lots of sleepless nights to pinpoint my true passions but when the dust settled it was clear! I wanted to build a platform, a business, that focused on helping extraordinary fathers pursue their dreams of building a successful business without sacrificing their families.

Questions, You May Have…
Q: How do I know if the StartupDad Inner Circle is right for me?
A: If this question resonate with you deeply: “how can I be an awesome father, fully active in my childs(ren) life and at the same time pursue my dreams of building a business that will not only afford the life style that I want for my family but also leave a MARK on this world and a LEGACY for years to come? than the Inner Circle is the place for you. It’s been proven time and time again that if you learn from the best and surround yourself with likeminded individuals, your success will soar.
Q: Why is it a quarterly or annual subscription and not monthly?
A: This is fantastic question and the straight answer is, we are looking for individuals who are committed and serious about investing in their business. We are building a community, a tribe, a family and it takes time to develop the bonds and the trust.
Q: How often will Joel be in the community?
A: Great question! One of Joel’s greatest passions, for over the past 20 years, has been teaching. That combined with his love for rolling up his sleeves to help individuals breakthrough barriers and solve problems is one of the main drivers factors behind him building Startup Dad Headquarters, LLC. So you can be assured that Joel will be in the community every day answering questions.
In addition, the community will have 5 - 10 Community Ambassadors (Successful StartupDads who were handpicked specifically by Joel) to provide support in the community in any way that they can.
Q: Can I get a refund?
A: Short Answer, YES! Slightly longer answer: StartupDad Inner Circle membership is billed on a quarterly, or annual basis. We offer new members a 30 day money back guarantee with no questions asked. We are confident that once you join the community, experience the impact that it can have on your business - if you take action! you’ll never want to leave, let alone a refund… ;-)
Q: How can I cancel my membership?
A: We would hate to see you go and our doors will always be open for inner circle alum’s. But if you do want to cancel, just contact our support team and access will be turned off at the end of your current membership period.
Q: Does becoming a StartupDad Inner Circle member guarantee results?
A: The action YOU take in your business will have a direct effect on how it grows and profits. Although we can’t guarantee results, one thing we can guarantee is that we will do everything we can to provide a community that gives you the know-how, support and accountability you need to succeed along your StartupDad journey. Whether you do so, or not, is entirely up to you and the action you take to secure your future as a business owner.
