    Aidan Mehigan - Founder and CEO of Natterjack ( Whisky Brand )

    In this episode of the Road to Growth podcast, we are pleased to introduce you to Aidan Mehigan. Aidan is the Founder and CEO of Natterjack, a popular Irish whisky brand he grew from zero to an internationally recognized liquor brand in less than 5 years.
    Natterjack, currently sold in 16 U.S. states and 13 global markets, was recognized as the Best Irish Whiskey 2024 in The Whiskey Bible and has 7+ figure annual revenues. The journey getting there wasn't easy! 
    In just a few short months, Jay raised $2,150,000 in private money. Despite initially cursing his banker, Jay now thanks him. Jay's unique system allows him to enjoy 7-figure profits year after year. He also has the freedom to work less than 10 hours per week in his real estate investing business by leveraging the power of automation.
    To fund the growth of his company in 2018, Aidan obtained a $940K+ convertible loan note. Then COVID-19 struck, and by the end of 2021, Natterjack had low cash reserves, international market sales were almost non-existent, and the Irish market was simply too small to sustain the business.
    To make matters worse, the convertible loan note holder also wanted their money, and Aidan couldn't pay it back. This resulted in a legal battle that ended with the court ruling in Aidan's favor, ending an attempted hostile acquisition and possible closure of Natterjack.

    Jay Conner - Real Estate Investor and Author

    Jay Conner - Real Estate Investor and Author

    In this episode of the Road to Growth podcast, we are pleased to introduce you to Jay Conner. Jay began investing in real estate in 2003. At the start of his career, he relied on his local banker and was able to put together a few deals. However, that also meant coming up with large down payments, paying origination fees, and signing personal guarantees on every deal. After years of feeling owned by the bank and being stressed out, he learned how to buy properties using creative financing, including subject-to and using lease-options.
    After the market crashed in 2008, his banker cut him off. Jay had to abandon everything he knew about how to finance his deals. Then, he heard about the world of private money. He developed his own system for gathering millions of dollars for real estate deals. Over several years, Jay refined his system until it was repeatable and dependable. When he put it to the test, the first person he approached gave him $250,000 in private money.
    In just a few short months, Jay raised $2,150,000 in private money. Despite initially cursing his banker, Jay now thanks him. Jay's unique system allows him to enjoy 7-figure profits year after year. He also has the freedom to work less than 10 hours per week in his real estate investing business by leveraging the power of automation.

    Ryan Crownholm - Serial Entrepreneur and U.S. Army Veteran

    Ryan Crownholm - Serial Entrepreneur and U.S. Army Veteran

    In this episode of the Road to Growth podcast, we are pleased to introduce you to Ryan Crownholm. Ryan is a serial entrepreneur; with a career spanning various industries, from construction to technology and beyond. A U.S. Army veteran with a background in construction as a former Class A General Engineering Contractor, Ryan has built a reputation for developing business models that not only promise but deliver immediate and sustainable returns. His expertise in identifying viable business concepts, assembling high-performing teams, and crafting strategies for customer attraction and profitability has made him a sought-after mentor and consultant.
    Ryan's entrepreneurial spirit is matched by his commitment to mentorship, guiding a diverse group of individuals including entrepreneurs, CEOs, veterans, and those with past incarcerations. His mission is to champion "insubordinate entrepreneurship," aiming to reshape the landscape for small business owners and entrepreneurs.
    At the helm of Crown Capital Adventures Inc. since 2014, and co-founder of Dirtmatch.com, Ryan leverages his expertise to connect contractors, homeowners, and companies in the construction industry. Mysiteplan.com, another venture founded in 2015, simplifies the permitting process for property owners with its drafting services. Beyond his businesses, Ryan fights for entrepreneurship through legal battles against restrictive laws, and as a consultant, he empowers CEOs to lead through metrics.
    Ryan's dedication extends to mentoring diverse communities, aiming to share his years of experience to benefit others. He advocates for a change in how founders interact with funding, the regulatory environment for entrepreneurs, and the perception of veterans and incarcerated individuals. A member of several prestigious networks and featured in multiple publications and podcasts, Ryan continues to inspire with his insubordinate approach to entrepreneurship.
    Ryan is the author of "The Hustle Trap", a compelling read that challenges the conventional glorification of relentless work and the pursuit of success at any cost. Through insightful analysis and personal anecdotes, Crownholm deconstructs the often romanticized 'hustle culture,' advocating for a more balanced approach to entrepreneurship and life. The book encourages readers to escape the trap of constant hustling, which can lead to burnout and personal sacrifice, and instead, to embrace efficiency, mindfulness, and strategic planning as tools for achieving sustainable success. Crownholm's narrative is not just a critique but a practical guide, offering strategies for entrepreneurs to optimize their time, prioritize their well-being, and achieve their goals without compromising their health or happiness. "The Hustle Trap" is an essential read for anyone caught in the cycle of perpetual work, seeking to find a harmonious balance between ambition and personal fulfillment.
