Burn Both Ends



If you're going to take the road less traveled, you might as well enjoy it, right?

After working with hundreds of small businesses, we wanted to give back some of the insight and knowledge we’d collected on the way. We combined powers with our colleague at The Content Chop Shop to co-found a small biz education community, Burn Both Ends.
