About Us

Hi! My name is Brett Trainor and I am a Corporate Escapee

I exited corporate America almost 4 years ago...and took back control of my career and more importantly my life.

During my 4-year escapee journey, I have learned many lessons on how to build highly profitable and efficient service businesses.

I have combined my fundamental corporate experience with my escapee learnings to create Hardwired for Growth.

This is the service I wish I had when I started my post-corporate career.
