Former Mega Agency Owner / Team Training Program Coach

Throughout his many years of owning, buying and opening multiple scratch agencies, he was able to build his agency to achieve multiple inner circle awards while maintaining the Mega Agency qualification.
His love for streamlining processes and technology inspired him to co-found The Follow Up Tool in 2017 which he later sold to Lightspeed Voice in 2019.
In 2020, Justin and his wife Corina decided to sell all of his agencies & locations to launch a Boutique Fitness Studio experience, TRIUMPH. Although the new venture gave him a taste of a new world, he wildly missed helping agents and coaching LSP’s in which drove him to join the CWC team as a Team Training Program coach.
His drive comes from his family of 5, and he believes agents can “have it all” through self accountability and leadership.
