But the vast majority of us feel too busy, buried, and behind.

While the idea of becoming more successful is inspiring; it can also feel daunting and unattainable. 

Most people today are so overwhelmed, spread thin, and pulled in so many different directions, that it’s easy to get stressed and discouraged as they realize that they may never reach the level of achievement they feel personally called to. 

Oftentimes, achievers are so maxed out doing what they’re already doing that they can’t imagine a life of doing even one more thing. Yet somehow, they know deep down, that there is still more they want to give the world and there is more they are meant to achieve.

Meet Rory Vaden

Rory has spent his lifetime studying ultra-performers and discovering consistent predictable strategies that can be used to achieve impossible goals, accelerate income growth and even attain globally renowned influence.

Being raised by a single mother, he started from humble beginnings but used what he learned to become an 8-Figure Entrepreneur, a Hall of Fame Speaker and an advisor to some of the most respected individuals and organizations in the world.

Rory’s Proprietary Methodology


4 Levels

of Influence

Anyone who aspires to achieve more in their own life can do it by mastering Rory’s proprietary methodology: “The Four Levels of Influence.”


The 4 Levels of Influence

Rory’s expertise is in studying the psychology of Influence – which he defines as the ability to inspire yourself and others to take action.

His research and teachings therefore center around developing strategies that move people to overcome procrastination, distraction, and priority dilution to do the things that must be done so that they can achieve true success.

Level 1 – Influencing yourself to take action.

Level 2 – Influencing another person to take action.

Level 3 – Influencing a group of people to take action.

Level 4 – Influencing a community of people to take action.

Every once in a while a writer comes along that completely shifts the way an entire generation thinks. Rory may be the one!

Level One:

Personal Development

The first step to becoming an ultra-performer is being able to influence and coach yourself to take action. If you want to build a better business; you need to first become a better person. 

This means that you’re able to command your own self-discipline in a way that it leads you to overcome procrastination and become extremely successful at achieving anything you’re doing. 

This is precisely what Rory talks about in his #1 Wall St Journal and #2 New York Times bestselling book Take the Stairs (which has now sold hundreds of thousands of copies and been translated into over a dozen languages).

“Rory’s book Take the Stairs gives you the tools you need to take control of the only person holding you back: yourself.”


#1 NYT Bestselling Author

“Rory shows you how to develop the courage, character, and determination to succeed in anything you attempt. His work can change your life!”

“Rory will tell you the truth about what it really takes to become a massive success in every area of your life.”

Level Two:


After you’ve learned to influence yourself, the second step is that you must learn the art and skill of ethically influencing another person. A huge part of becoming successful means being able to convince and persuade other people.

While this is commonly referred to as selling, Rory and his wife and business partner AJ, have developed an entirely unique outlook on sales training called “Pressure Free Persuasion.” 

This service-centered approach teaches you how to make even more income by putting the needs of your prospect’s ahead of your own. Level 2 influence will teach you how to make the sales without the slime.

“Your training was crucial in helping me generate over $1.2 million in my first full year as an entrepreneur!”

Level Three:


The third level of influence is learning how to help a team of people succeed. 

This happens predominantly by learning how to prioritize your own focus as a leader in the midst of massive chaos and distraction (based on Rory’s TEDx talk, “How to Multiply Time”, with millions of views) and by understanding the 7 fundamental behaviors that inspire higher team performance (taught through Rory’s “Influential Leader” curriculum). 

These methodologies and frameworks are what led Rory to be named as “one of the top 100 leadership speakers in the world” by Inc Magazine. 

“You have helped us clarify our entire process for scaling up our internal team in a quick and simple way. This process is genius. Pure genius.”

Level Four:

Personal Branding

Activating an entire community of people around an idea or a movement is the fourth level of influence. 

Often this includes learning tactical skills like digital marketing, creating thought leadership, writing books, growing an online following and public speaking. This is the dedicated focus and specialty of Rory and AJ’s rapidly-growing company, Brand Builders Group

After working with several of the world’s most recognizable influencers, Brand Builders Group has quickly become one of the most respected personal brand strategy firms in the industry.
