Jean Louis Hardy of ENG2 and James Gamet of Inches Make Miles have joined forces and merged their marketing and consulting companies into one entity, and they share a common dream: to train entrepreneurs to build their dream companies. They help these business owners to develop a crystal-clear understanding of their purpose, processes, and profits and serve as both a consultation service and educational center, optimizing clients’ lives so they can become top performers.
Jean Louis Hardy of BC, Canada, has overcome the personal struggle of homelessness. He dragged himself out of that abyss and built the type of company that he wishes had been there for him when he was trying to learn how to achieve his own dreams. Now, having worked with multiple successful startups, and helping many companies come back from the brink of bankruptcy, Hardy teaches and supports entrepreneurs who are building their businesses.
James Gamet of Portland, Oregon, is a medically retired US Marine. Like Hardy, he’s faced his battles: depression and anxiety, specifically. This was the lowest part of his life and caused him to closely examine what it truly means to be successful. Overcoming despair was the catalyst for his journey, and now he has spent over 10 years coaching high performance athletes, building businesses from the ground up and selling them, and speaking on mindset, mental health, and how to optimize your life. He volunteers with multiple veterans’ organizations and his mission is to impact as many people as possible and see them live fulfilling lives.
Hardy’s company ENG2 provides marketing and consulting across a wide array of industries and content types. ENG2 offers organic traffic SEO services (conversion optimization and content strategy, digital advertising and monetization, email marketing, product photography and videography, and more.
Gamet’s company Inches Make Miles provides marketing and PR strategies, social media marketing like Facebook and Google ads, website design, SEO, driving traffic, creating media placements, etc.
Together, Hardy and Gamet have created and launched a 8-week challenge called the Science of 6-Figures focused on the 3 Fix Method:
- Offer & Avatar creation
- Systems & Processes
- Leadership & Culture
After completing the challenge, students should be ready for the Science of 7-Figures, which focuses on all the things needed to scale their business above and beyond the 7-figure mark.
The two companies, merged as one, are also launching an international public speaking tour, based upon Gamet’s experience and expertise as a public speaker, and Hardy’s educational background. “Over the next 5 years, we aim to help over 1 million people connect their purpose to their profits through problem solving their worlds’ issues,” says Gamet, “and by focusing on a high-performance mindset.”
He points to what Hardy calls the Primary 4 Containers: Family, Health, Spiritual, and Wealth. “We allow our students to discover the “why” behind their purpose,” Hardy shares. “Then we help them establish the daily actions needed to live their dream lives.” Between Gamet’s high-performance mindset and Hardy’s focus on defining one’s purpose, entrepreneurs gain the necessary tools to establish the guidelines of their own personal dream life, “in which they find fulfillment in their containers and establish the accountability needed through themselves to stay the course and attain that life,” Hardy adds.
Both Gamet and Hardy point to the poignant Mary Oliver quote, “What is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?” They also heed the wise words of Viktor E. Frankl: “Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.” Lastly, as a business of faith ENG2 points Heavenward with Proverbs 10:4: “He who has a slack hand becomes poor, but the hand of the diligent makes rich.”
Gamet says that he named his company Inches Make Miles because “it’s all about progress over perfection, the only thing separating you from the greatest of all time is the amount of time and effort you have spent honing your craft” and that what starts small – like an inch – can become a mile with sacrifice.
Hardy builds upon that by emphasizing a strong personal moral compass that leads to success in business: “My values act as a north star and guide the interactions I have with customers, they inform the way I do business, and ensure any action taken matches my guiding belief systems.”
