Gamal Codner and his wife started, scaled, and sold their 7-figure brand in just 4 years, giving them a new lease on life. Now they help other e-commerce founders do the same - building better businesses so their clients can make more, work less, and enjoy time with their family.

So how did Gamal shift his perspective, scale his business, and escape the golden prison all within a few short years?

Tune in to find out as Gamal shares his secret sauce for scaling without the headache and building a business with the intention to sell. And start taking the time to savor your life now, become more equitable, and enjoy being a founder.


“Liquidity events are the leading wealth creation tool that no one really talks about.”

“Exiting my business and having that financial impact was the only time as an entrepreneur of five brands that I actually felt comfortable, even though I was doing well.”

“Sometimes things happen to you not only for your own purpose but to serve other people. That was a big lesson. The other lesson was we all know that we have a purpose in this world, right? But we think that we have 10 or 20 years to do it. What if I realized I only had a year to do it, or a month, or a week? What is the most amount of impact we can make if we don't have infinite time on Earth?”

THANK YOU! I am on journey of understanding self and this podcast is speaking to me already! It has touched my heart in so many ways! I am on a journey to live in the certainty of my future but the idea of the past present and future cohesion 🤯I have always been an ambitious over achiever but when I don’t excel in something I give it up for fear of not living up to the standards I have set. Key takeaway number one stop hiding yourself. And stop judging yourself for judging yourself LOL oh my goodness I can relate to that! The freedom of being me unapologetically is a tell tale sign that I have done just that in my every day.💃🏾Key take away number two. There is no measuring stick other then have you been yourself today. This journey of who am I is so important and crucial at this time in my life. The idea of not measuring my life but acknowledging my freedom to be me and doing just that is again so pivotal and super important. Such a key detail I didn’t know I needed!I have always been shamed for flirting without a purpose, having a bubbly personality. I was dumped because of it and lost friends because they understand me. Key Takeaway number three. Flirt with life! How dare I let others judge me in such a way that I shame myself for making people smile with no ulterior motive! Just because I’m happy 😊 it’s insane that the judgment and the shame I felt and embodied affected me so aggressively. Not only should I thrive in that but I should rejoice in it to.This podcast doesn’t give life, it is life!!!!! Thank you 😊 I appreciate you!!! I am so ready for this. As an entrepreneur working towards my own definition of success these jewels and gems and platinum nuggets are priceless, needed, and are so valuable! I can’t thank you enough and j look forward to replaying them catching things I didn’t hear before and tuning in to the upcoming episodes!It’s 2023 LET’S GO!!!!!!!!!!!!
