Starting a business is an adventure like no other. Growing a business, however, is where the real challenge kicks in. Over 90% of small businesses fail within two years, but most of the time the reasons for failure are avoidable if you have the right experience. We’re here to provide that.
We’ve grown multiple businesses of our own. Use our knowledge to grow yours.
As Red Ant’s founders we, Marc and Roxy Crouch, have launched and built 6 businesses so far in the past 20 years. The first two ultimately failed, as is common. But then we cracked it, and now every business we develop is built according to a repeatable formula that we created as a result of the lessons learned from our earliest ventures all those years ago.
As a result we now have the life we always wanted, enjoying our work and lifestyle with all the freedoms that being a business owner provides, when done right. We want to help you build your own profitable, sustainable business that will give you the life you want.
