The biggest mistake high-performers make is assuming they can achieve 10x results on their own.
The most successful CEOs and founders know they don’t have all the answers.
They just have to know and trust the people who do.
MEET BILL WATKINS
THE 10X ACCELERATION EXPERT
I’VE BEEN CALLED MANY THINGS…
AND I DESERVE MOST OF THEM.
Business leader. Accelerator. Supportive husband. Proud dad. World-class athlete. Decorated veteran. The real deal. And a few I won’t mention (but that doesn’t mean they are any less true).
I’ve been called the ‘CEO Whisperer’ because I speak the language of high performance and accelerated results. It’s not a poetic language. It’s not always easy to hear. It’s even harder to do. And it is certainly not for everyone.
But, then again, neither are the results you want.
To be honest (and I am, usually brutally),
I hesitate to use the word, “coach,” for several reasons.
I’M NOT A LIFE COACH…
who can’t understand—and help you incorporate—the necessary skills to scale up your work productivity, grow your entrepreneurial business, and build big things.
I’M NOT A BUSINESS CONSULTANT…
who can’t see—and help you benefit from—the tremendous value in a healthy marriage, the relationships you have with your kids, and the effort you make in caring for yourself.
I’M NOT AN EXECUTIVE COACH…
who works with every high-potential leadership candidate. I only train and support CEOs and founders at the tip of the spear who are ready to 10x every part of their lives.
“I used to struggle with getting it all done to the performance level I’m naturally drawn to. After working with Bill Watkins for a year, I see the value he brings to me as a CEO, a father, and a man.”

YOU CAME HERE TO LEARN ABOUT ME.
HERE’S WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW.
Speed and acceleration are in my blood.
I’ve been a competitive, high-performer since birth (I even beat my due date by several days). I drove my early teachers crazy because I had to be the first to do everything, and I goaded others into competing with me. I’m sure I’m the reason my mom was the first one of her friends to go gray, too.
I actively seek the top.
I graduated in the top 2% at West Point and received two MSMs while holding two company commands during my service in the Army. I was recruited into the Army’s world-class athlete program and competed for selection to two Olympic Teams in 1980 and 1984. And then I went back at age 55 and stepped onto the National Championship podium again—just to prove I could do it.
I’m no stranger to the bottom.
I knew that creating the life I wanted wasn’t going to be easy, and I made every mistake to make sure it wasn’t. I’ve come close to losing everything. I’ve been scarred on battlefields of business and life. I once lost decades worth of revenue (remind me to tell you about my $20,000,000 mistake). I’ve been divorced. I have come within minutes of suicide. So when I tell you I’ve been there, know that I mean it. And when I try to keep you from making those mistakes, know that I mean that, too.
I do this job for a reason.
Of everything I’ve ever done, creating The Lions Pride for guys like you is what I was made for. I eat, sleep, and breathe this stuff. My clients and I achieve more in our sleep than thousands of others do in a typical workday. We are high-performers by definition, and we are high-functioning leaders because we have the tools, the perspective, and each other to make sure we don’t stop until we get 10x the results in everything we do.
BECAUSE YOU ARE HERE
I’M WILLING TO BET YOU AND I ARE A LOT ALIKE.
I’m also willing to bet that if you continue working harder and slower than you need to, you are selling yourself—and everything and everyone you want in your life—short.
And you’re so much better than that.
You have the drive, the talent, and the potential to accelerate your business and enhance your life at the same time. You can remove remove stress, overwhelm, guilt, and worry and replace them with clarity, control, meaning, and happiness. All you need are practiced skills, hard-core tools, and the right people at your side.
The Lions Pride and I are ready to push you 10x further and faster than you ever thought possible.
THE QUESTION IS: ARE YOU?
“Bill is a man with more success than anyone I know, but you’d never know it… He’s not interested in convincing you of his worth. He doesn’t have to. He’s been where I want to go and when he talks, I listen.”

I PROMISE TO HELP YOU KEEP YOUR PROMISES.
Your wedding vows. The first words you uttered to your newborn son. The game you told your daughter you’d be in the stands for. The contract you signed at work. The list of things you swore you’d never do.
In a moment of calm, you made promises. And when the waters rise and the battle heats up, I’m here to make sure you keep them.
It’s why I fully guarantee everything we do at The Lions Pride. It’s not just because I’m confident my programs work (they do) or because everyone who has ever completed them has gone on to lead better, fuller, happier and more purposeful lives (they have). It’s because I made a promise to help you get 10x more out of your business and your life, and I fully intend to keep it.
If you don’t feel I’m 10x-ing your life, I’ll return every cent you’ve paid.
Are you ready to get started?

“I was looking for a mentor who has been where I’m going—not just a coach who could motivate me and tell me what I’m doing right, but one who could specifically identify where I am stuck and have answers to push me forward. This requires someone who has done more than just ‘made it.’ It requires someone who has studied, who can coach, who has a broad range of knowledge, and who continues to seek out—and test—programs that get results.”

THERE’S NO SUCH THING AS WORK-LIFE BALANCE.
Unless you also believe in unicorns, Bigfoot, and Santa Claus.
We have all been there. We’ve played catch-up at work and dropped the ball at home. We’ve committed to family and lost game-changing business opportunities. We’ve tried doing both simultaneously and watched both suffer–sometimes irreversibly.
I hate to break it to you, but work and life will never exist in separate-but-equal quantities. There is no balance, only the ebb and flow of what’s important at any given moment in your life. When the pieces of your life are well-managed, they move with the tide and the pull of gravity. When they are broken, missing, or too heavily weighted, everything will eventually grind to a painful halt.
I’m proof that you can be an exceptional spouse, an attentive parent, a groundbreaking entrepreneur and vibrantly healthy all at the same time. It just takes walking the harder, smarter, courageous path toward a bigger business and a better life with the ones you love.
I know you are doing the best you can.
And I promise I can help you do it better.
“Every member of The Lion’s Pride is more than an exceptional business leader. We’re also parents, spouses, little league coaches, friends, and volunteers. We don’t want to just 10x how we contribute to our bottom lines. We want to 10x how we contribute to everything.”
— BILL WATKINS, FOUNDER
