The Short Version:

I’m Charles Lee Collins.

I help entrepreneurs grow and scale 6 and 7-figure small businesses by focusing on getting more sales, more profit and more freedom. My strengths are in systems and marketing, but after doing this for over 20 years I have also gained experience in countless other areas including operations, SEO, process development, paid advertising, and automation strategies.

With the support of my amazing team, we help our clients build unstoppable businesses:

  • by offering simple, straightforward advice
  • that is proven in over 100 industries
  • it works for you regardless of your business or practice type
  • whether it is building your business
  • or expanding your profits
  • it’s all about creating more value for clients and customers
  • and liberating yourself from daily business pressures
  • so you have more fun playing the game of business your way
  • while growing your business or professional practice

I believe everything that you want to do, be, and have comes down to finding the vital need in your business, and fixing it.

One thing at a time.

If you’re stuck and this sounds like the kind of help you need to level up your business, let’s talk.

If you’re looking for easy buttons, hacks, loopholes, or for millions of dollars to magically fall from the sky next month – I am NOT your guy. Ours is more of a slow-cooker approach. You cannot rush something you want to last forever.

The Longer Version:
Who I Am

I’m Charles Lee Collins.

I help entrepreneurs grow and scale 6 and 7-figure small businesses by focusing on getting more sales, more profit and more freedom. My strengths are in systems and marketing, but after doing this for over 20 years I have also gained experience in countless other areas including operations, SEO, process development, paid advertising, and automation strategies.

My Mission

I love helping small business owners achieve “big business” success, without a huge marketing budget and without the need for any outside funding. (As Liam Neeson says, “I have a certain set of skills”.)

My Journey

lee-collins-marketing-mentor-advisor-catalystI have only been a practicing marketing advisor since 1999, but I have been an entrepreneur at heart for as long as I can remember.

My first entrepreneurial venture began at 16 years old when I became one of the world’s first successful martial arts equipment distributors under the age of 18.

I was making so much money my parents thought I was somehow dealing drugs through mail order, so they forced me to stop.

At 16, it crushed me.

Because of that, I put my freelance endeavors on hold to serve in the United States Air Force until 1998 and then found myself bitten again by the entrepreneurial bug again in 1999.

At first, I pursued my own consulting practice alongside a very success corporate career as Vice President of Technology in a major global brand. In 2007, with my personal revenue far exceeding my corporate pay, I hung up my suit and tie forever, and I have never looked back.

What I’m Here to Do

After that, I helped everyone I could get more sales, more profit and more freedom – from the corner burger shop to attorneys, politicians and even Fortune 500 companies – and I built a solid reputation by delivering exactly what I said I would. Every time.

People say I have a gift for bringing calm to chaos and for making the complicated things seem simple, all in a “Southern Zen” kind of way.

I’m not slick. I’m not polished.

But, for over 20 years now, I am known as “the guy who gets shit done” and the person other marketers call when they have a marketing problem that needs solved.

If you’re stuck and this sounds like the kind of help you need to level up your business, let’s talk.

If you’re looking for easy buttons, hacks, loopholes, or for millions of dollars to magically fall from the sky next month – I am NOT your guy. Ours is more of a slow-cooker approach. You cannot rush something you want to last forever.
