Who is Patrick McGilvray?
After 16 years of working in an unfulfilling corporate job, I realized I wanted more. I wanted to love my work, but I was stuck and afraid to take action.
In 2013, I completed my first IRONMAN triathlon. When I crossed that finish line I realized for the first time in my life that I could do anything! So I took the leap and started my own business.
Since then, I’ve built two successful businesses myself and helped scores of others to do the same. I created The Brand Sketch to teach you everything I’ve learned about pushing through the fear and the challenges to build a successful, sustainable business.
Whether you're just getting started or you've been in business a while, I'll help you get and keep going as a solopreneur.
You don't have to go it alone!
