Hello, my name is Paul Monax and I’d like to welcome you to The Business Leak Detector. I have always had a pretty numbers oriented, engineering mind, but it took me years of trial and error and educating myself as well as having some good teachers, coaches and mentors before I gained the skills and tools necessary to turn that number oriented mind into a business mind and to really understand how business works, and what story those numbers tell about business.
After repeatedly being told that I have a knack for understanding business and eliminating the confusing accounting jargon from the equation and explaining how business really works from a non-accountant and business owners perspective, I felt obligated to step up my game and share that knowledge.
You can read my full mission statement below, but basically I am now teaching small business owners of the world the skills and tools necessary in order to create a sustained success in your own business.
This site and the associated programs and services that I’ve created are dedicated to teaching small business owners the skills and tools you need to own a profitable business that has long term sustained success and will help you to build the business and the legacy that you have been dreaming of.
For the first decade or so of my career I was a corporate employee at mostly smaller companies, typically under 100 employees and some under a dozen. At the end of that stretch I did a stint at a Fortune 5 company Citigroup, who had about 300,000 worldwide employees at the time.
I decided that huge company wasn’t a good fit for my independent/entrepreneurial tendencies and I finally had enough confidence to strike out on my own and I started my own Consulting company in February 2005. That consulting business turned out to really be my first successful business, because I had started learning the skills of business and what owning a successful business really meant.
I had previously owned a several businesses on the side, but nothing had really done very well, and it wasn’t until I gained the skills and knowledge that I learn as the owner of the Consulting company that I realized why those earlier businesses hadn’t been successful.
I now want to pass along the knowledge and experience that I’ve picked up on owning and running a successful small business from some of the top mentors, coaches, and trainers in the field of business including: T. Harv Eker, Greg Habstritt, Keith Cunningham, Blair Singer and Jeff Walker as well as countless others that I have worked with in person, or learned from their books, videos and courses.
I have brought my background working with Fortune 500 sized companies into the arena of Small Business, and help show small business owners where they are missing huge opportunities and have hidden goldmines right in your own backyard.
I live in the Denver metro area of the Colorado Rocky Mountains with my wife Debie and our daughter Sierra.
Like my Mission (below in the footer) says, my ultimate goal is to help all the small business owners of the world gain a better understanding of money, finances and how business really works through education, mentorship and coaching.
