The Journey

An entrepreneur is born

The Rest is History

Creativity can be a blessing and a curse. Overwhelm can take the best ideas and leave you totally stuck and without an actionable next step.

Finding yourself staring at the computer not sure what to do next is the worse! Combine that with trying to take your idea and sketch it out on paper only to find you don’t know what comes next is so frustrating – you’re tired of feeling stuck!

That’s why back in late 2015 I took the biggest risk of my life and created Ed Troxell Creative – my full-time consulting business. I not only invested in myself but more importantly, I invested in you. I know you are curious, you want to make a change, and that creativity mixed with technology can be a real challenge – until now!

For over 10+ years I’ve worked with small businesses, entrepreneurs, and nonprofits helping them overcome their obstacles. I’ve been so blessed to have helped so many and we’re just getting started!

So, how can I help you?    

Since I was a kid

I was a talker – sharing all my crazy business ideas with whoever would listen to me. My mom would say (and she still does to this day), “All you want to do is talk, talk, talk. You’re always talking non-stop about all these big ideas you have – you never stop, but I love you!”

At the age of 5, I started working with my dad who was a handyman but I knew right away that was not a career option for me – carrying buckets full of broken tile didn’t bring me joy. People always joke that I was born an entrepreneur because I live and breathe it every day! Growing up, my first job was selling sodas to the neighborhood kids – I saw a need and I provided a solution.

At the age of 16, I started working part-time in the “traditional office” setting filing purchase orders – that didn’t last long as I was bored out of my mind. It was a paycheck though and I was happy to have a job.

I know how hard everyone in my family worked just to put food on the table which is why I’ve always been happy with having a job – it taught me what I needed to know and it helped fund all my “crazy” business ideas.

Back in college, I built my first business MIX IT UP Magazine. I did this while going to school and working several part-time jobs – it all started because I wanted to work for Men’s Health but at the time it wasn’t feasible for me to move to New York City so I told myself, “well if I can’t go there why not build my own magazine right here at home?” I picked up one book, did my research, built my magazine business and ran it for 2 years – producing 4 issues all of which you can view online.
