What We're All About

GBA is all about one thing. We focus our entire efforts into the self-interests of each and every one of our valued clients.

Learn Something New Every Day

At GBA, we’re passionate about Self-Education and Workplace Integrated Learning. We want all of our members to soar and decimate their current long term goals so they have to set and achieve new ones. I’m just a guy who refuses to quit. I’ve started many businesses and have learned tough life lessons along the way. I am NOT an overnight success!

I’m a human rights advocate which has led to applying my marketing skills to Social Impact and Sustainability. I hold BAs in Communications and Media Studies, Law and Legal Studies, and Human Rights from Carleton University. I hold a Master of Management, Innovation, and Entrepreneurship from the Smith School of Business and Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science at Queen’s University.

I’m also into spending time with family, working out, eating healthy while still making it taste good, watching professional sports, attending live events, playing guitar, cooking Tiktok recipes, reading/listening to business mastermind books, and podcasts.

But I love helping businesses and learning new skills so most of the things I discuss from my mental desktop are high level mastermind concepts, inbound local seo and Linkedin organic outreach advice, sales negotiation, or closing strategies.

Our Vision

Who We Are

"It is impossible for a person to learn what they think they already know."

At Global Business Advisors, we work with professionals and business owners to acquire both digital and offline skills that skyrocket their careers, solo businesses, SMBs or enterprises.

At GBA we are thrilled to be in an environment where company thoughts, actions, and directives are based exclusively on the self interests of our loyal client community. What makes us different from other companies is that we’re helping you hedge your risk on your next online course purchase. We save you time from not having to research top experts in a number of areas with proven profitable business models. You save money from not buying the wrong kind of course that does not fit with your background, interests, experience and problem. If you’re someone trying to run a side hustle, make additional capital, or quit your job, there are several programs available that can provide you the blueprint then it’s all about execution. Perhaps you own an enterprise and you wished your employees would get along better and work together more. Maybe you know if they stayed on task they would skyrocket growth consistently for your company. We have programs that will help with that sort of thing too. Our company values are trust, respect, gratitude, integrity, diversity, innovation, and excellence. The GBA mission is to help as many professionals acquire more skills to get promotions or better jobs, while supporting business owners with online marketing, corporate management, sales, and additional revenue source instructional programs.
