Hi, I’m Adam Erhart.
Marketer. Traveller. Entrepreneur. Agency owner. And all around pretty happy guy.
I’ve been studying marketing and what makes successful individuals and companies so successful for years, and these simple principles have enabled me to help myself and my clients build and grow value producing and highly profitable businesses.
I truly believe that marketing is the single most important element in business success, and that strategy should always (ALWAYS) form the foundation of any marketing campaign.
It’s my goal to share what I’ve learned over the years with you, and so I write and speak mostly about marketing, but also a little on entrepreneurship, personal development, productivity, and business, as they all tie in to one another at some point or another.

Modern Marketing Principles
Owning and operating a marketing agency has given me the inside scoop on what worked in the past, what’s working now, and what’s going to work in the future.
After years of study, countless books, audios, courses, and seminars, I’ve finally been able to distill a few simple marketing truths.
And it turns out, they weren’t as complicated as I had originally thought.
My Modern Marketing Principles are:
- Strategy first.
- Design matters.
- The market never lies.
I’m a former Executive Business Jet Pilot who has had the privilege of serving some of the world’s richest and most powerful individuals. From Forbes billionaires to world leaders, foreign diplomats to senior executives, and religious leaders to royalty, I’ve seen the entire spectrum of success.
While flying business jets around the world was an amazing experience, after years of flying I found myself unfulfilled and unhappy. From the outside I appeared successful, but on the inside I knew I wanted something different, something more.
So with the support of my family I gave up flying, committed myself to an even deeper study of marketing and business and started my first business working as a marketing consultant for small businesses.
But since some incredibly humble beginnings, the businesses have grown and grown beyond what I ever expected. I’ve started 3 different business and marketing agencies, and have had the opportunity to work with people and companies of all scopes and sizes from all over the world.
What was the secret to my success?
Studying and implementing proven marketing principles and strategies into my own business. Basically I finally started practicing what I was preaching.
I’ve been married to my wife Natalie for 5 years, and we have a 13 month old son named Benjamin (the picture below is him at 6 months looking very surprised), and a yellow lab named Jake.
We live most of the time in British Columbia, Canada, and spend a healthy part of each year travelling to our favourite places, currently Hawaii, London, and Tofino (located on the West Coast of Vancouver Island, British Columbia. It’s amazing.)
In my free time I play guitar, read, attempt to cook (though I do make a mean chicken, bacon mac and cheese), and workout regularly.
