The BIZ Raise Your Game was founded by former top 10 global ranking martial artist John Burch. While building his own successful martial arts school, Burch learned the truth behind the myths of running small businesses. He then spent several years as a hired gun reworking the operating procedures of other companies. Burch soon discovered his niche in small to mid-size businesses that were passionate about their services but suffered from debilitating structural problems due to poor systems. In 2008, the experience of transforming CrossFit Los Angeles as a consultant inspired Burch’s current mission to empower privately owned gyms through his innovative and irreverent business tools. The resulting company, The BIZ: Raise Your Game, currently serves 300+ businesses worldwide and has helped over 1,000 since its inception. To meet ever-increasing demand, the business has also expanded beyond fitness to serve small businesses in technology, entertainment and fashion. In 2012, The BIZ successfully launched the saucy sports apparel brand, Raise Your Game.

“There is nothing more rewarding than when a client tells me his dream of transforming his passion into a sustainable business has become a reality thanks to The BIZ tools. Watching clients’ gross revenue increase steadily make me smile, but the bigger payoff is knowing that running a better, more effective and more profitable business is enabling each client to live a better life.”
– The BIZ Raise Your Game Founder, John Burch

We believe everyone has the right to grow healthy food, thriving indoor plants, a luscious lawn, and beautiful flowers. With that simple concept we created a line of organic, pesticide-free plant food so that everyone can exercise their plant rights.

When we developed OrganicsRx, we realized that the organic plant food on the market contains animal by-products, so we formulated our line to be simply plant- and mineral-based, free of anything animal. Plus we believe plant food should be safe for people and pets, so it’s 100% non-toxic. It’s also easy to use for professionals as well as those of us who just get a thrill from watching an orchid re-bloom.

We want everyone to be over-achievers when it comes to growing, flowers, lawns, trees and edible herbs and vegetables. The goal is to succeed at organic home gardening with products that simplify the process, with no toxicity or negative environmental effects. Results are guaranteed in 14 days or less. http://organicsrx.com
