Watch our video for a quick introduction to how NXT-9 gets you into cruise mode – that place where your business is thriving.

Before Neil Armstrong could take his “small step for man” he and his team of Next 9 astronauts underwent a rigorous training program under the expert guidance of Raymond Zedehar.

The first team of civilian astronauts, named the Next 9, were recruited from public applications and lacked the scientific knowledge that would make them effective in space.  It was only with the experienced guidance of these mentors and coaches that resulted in this historical achievement- a successful lunar landing.

NXT-9 sets you free from the gravitational forces holding your business back

Every entrepreneur has ambitions for growth, wealth creation, cashflow, free time, impact, and flow. Those collective hopes represent our personal ‘moonshot’. But few of us have a business that is really headed for the moon.
