Josh Pocock Story

About Josh Pocock

Josh has been an entrepreneur for many years working in sales and marketing all his life. When Josh started his full-service marketing agency a few years ago he was a generalist cold calling and cold emailing any niche, selling any service from Facebook ads to SEO and website design. Like many entrepreneurs, this didn’t work out well because he was juggling too many different clients in different industries and he had no proven system to convert clients on demand. At first he tried hiring agencies and ‘experts to help him get more clients but the ROI was nonexistent. Josh tried everything until he stumbled upon LinkedIn; a goldmine. He spend years learning everything on how to set up a fully automated client acquisition machine leveraging LinkedIn. It worked so well for Josh that his clients started asking for it and it soon became his bread & butter service. He then turned his system into a comprehensible mentorship program to ensure his clients get the long-term results they need while maintaining their sovereignty. Josh quickly was able to scale his business and help his clients scale using LinkedIn and the completely NEW way of prospecting that no one talks about.

Background on

Josh Pocock and Executive Stride

1.

Early Days

As a kid, I wanted to play hockey. In the NHL. I loved the game, so building habits of daily practice and persistence was easy. When a hockey career didn’t happen, I was crushed. It took a minute to recalibrate, but when I did, I knew I didn't want to live life working for others or be dependent on anyone else for my success. I wanted to be an entrepreneur.

Door-to-Door Sales

Started door-to-door sales at 16 - I liked the uncapped income potential. Plus, I wanted to learn how to Sell. Working 12-14 hr days for a month, and closing zero deals was tough. Then things clicked. Soon my sales were ranked number 1 at the company, and over the next year I grew the company’s top performing sales team. I thought I was ‘rich’. Made a bunch of money very young and wasn’t smart with it. Had cool toys. Forgot about taxes Accumulated debt.

Started Online Business

Got into online marketing & ecommerce to level up my skills and build a more portable business not reliant on door-to-door grind. Started several ecommerce stores and learned tons about paid ads, websites, SEO, etc. Networking with entrepreneurs, I saw how much I could help other owners strategically grow their businesses. I realized my accrued skill set now offered massive value. So I launched Utopian Marketing - a full service digital marketing agency in Toronto, Canada.

Struggled To Scale

Didn’t take long for the marketing agency to generate a decent income - but ‘decent’ was never the objective. Utopian had reached a plateau; I was a generalist cold calling and cold emailing any niche, selling any service from Facebook ads to SEO and website design. I was juggling too many different clients in different niches and hadn't fully systematized and automated my services for either client acquisition or fulfillment. I tried hiring agencies to help, but they all just gave ineffective cookie cutter solutions. My workload and headaches were huge, which made the agency’s ‘decent’ ROI seem even worse. I thought I’d tried everything, until I came upon a new strategy for business client acquisition. Pretty much locked myself in my office for a few years - invested in myself - learned everything about how to set up a fully automated client acquisition and fulfillment money making machine. One thing I noticed was that there was no cohesive guide that pretty much guaranteed success and encompassed all aspects needed to build a strong foundation and scale quickly. There were many marketers, coaches, and course creators who were just regurgitating information without any idea about all the nuances involved with building a fluent profitable machine. And so I built one myself and started implementing it in my business… and the automated system worked so well, helping me scale my business like never before, that clients started asking for it. And soon it became my bread and butter service: ExecutiveStride.com.

Hit My Stride

I help entrepreneurs automate client acquisition and optimize strategic marketing, fulfillment and technology to scale from $0 to $1M in 12 months or less. When we first created our cutting-edge S.T.R.I.D.E business growth system - ensuring a steady flow of qualified leads to clients’ businesses - the offering was a ‘Done for You’ service model. Businesses came to us, we guaranteed them a specific number of leads every month - but it was our client’s job to cultivate those leads and manage fulfillment. Soon it became clear that while many clients thrived with an automated client acquisition process, other businesses didn’t fare so well. And the magic gap was training. Because while every business owner may know their own product better than anybody, they don’t always know the best way to market or scale that product for maximum profit. By offering the complete Executive Stride knowledge base in one Intensive Master Program, the 6-Step STRIDE System for Business Growth has been able to help clients gain the top-to-bottom expertise required to maximize results. Check out some testimonials to see what business owners and entrepreneurs have to say about the impact our training system has had on their business! Once you’ve completed the 6-Step STRIDE System for Business Growth, you’ll have all the knowledge and tools you need to scale your business like never before.

Our Company’s Mission And Vision

ExecutiveStride Mission – Reform Business and Entrepreneurial Education.


ExecutiveStride Vision – Empower and Connect People to Create Successful Organizations Worldwide.


ExecutiveStride Consulting & Training


So how does all of this tie in with our goal to be the world’s most impactful business consulting firm in the world? Well, in order to fully understand that, let’s discuss why we want to reform the education system in the first place…


In the opinion of the Executive Stride Exec Team, the biggest issue with the current education system is that the teachers are not practitioners at the highest level. Most college professors in the realm of business have spent their life behind the books and have not been able to achieve great success themselves. This causes the information they provide and the guidance they provide to be less valuable to the students.


When we compiled a team of entrepreneurs to come together to reform the education system, we wanted to be clear that we weren’t out to mimic the same system we set out to disrupt.


Therefore, we’ve dedicated ourselves to become the best consultants we can be, in order to help an exponential amount of businesses and entrepreneurs reach their full potential. Once that has been accomplished, we will leverage the knowledge, the insights, the relationships, and the same framework we assist our clients with, to build the most influential education technology platform in the world.
