Why not you?
If you’ve never had a tribe, if you’ve never had real, earnest mentoring from entrepreneurs just like you, then you are missing the only opportunity for digital service entrepreneurs to motivate, encourage, and push each other through the hurdles of building a business. Why wait, when help is waiting for you?
Going at it alone? That doesn’t mean you have to learn in isolation. Learn from others who’ve been in your shoes and experienced the same stress of feast-or-famine work. Stop treading water and gain practical insight into business skills that will build your credibility and confidence with a return-on-investment that will give you more freedom and control.

Learn how to scale your business through the support and encouragement of other agency entrepreneurs. Thrive with help from leaders who’ve made it to the other side. Expand your life.
A Freelancer's Story

A Digital Agency's Story
Tarra has been a graphics and website designer since she was 16 years old, got a BFA and hung out her shingle only to discover that she had never been taught how to run a business.
Meet The UGURUS Team
Emily manages various marketing efforts, including The Digital Agency Show podcast, and shares educational content with agency owners around the world. She’s married to founder Brent Weaver —they met when he pitched a website project to her while she was working at Colorado Ballet. They have worked together in several capacities, including traveling to Ethiopia to help manage literacy programs for a non-profit. When she isn’t with Brent and their rambunctious little boys, she’s gardening, riding horses, or making art.
Chief Guru and CEO
Brent leads the vision for UGURUS and creates educational programs that help agency owners work on their business to drive additional revenues, increase profits, and create freedom in their life. He built his first website at 15, and created his first web-design business at 17. That company grew into a successful, 14-person web agency that was acquired in 2012. Brent has helped thousands of other web professionals master business skills and has made more than $10mm as an entrepreneur. Married with two sons, Brent enjoys his road bike and swimming laps. His favorite program? Google Chrome.
Dianna consults with freelancers and agency entrepreneurs to assess their key challenges and make a plan for tackling those to get them on track for their goals. If UGURUS is a good match for these web professionals, she helps identify the training and mentored guidance they need. Originally an educator, Dianna fell into the business world and found that she had a knack for seeing the big picture and identifying solutions that help businesses grow. She loves receiving the random WIN email from a UGURUS grad. Her favorite game is 500 Rummy (which she started teaching to her daughter at the age of 4) and she still has her first email address (a 1997 Yahoo domain) although it’s used for random signups. With 3500 unreal emails, you aren’t likely to reach her there.
