Case Study

When I started Design Extensions, which has since been rebranded as Business Builders, I was just 17 years old. Honestly, I had no idea what I was doing. I was just a teen trying to make some side money doing something I loved — building websites.

Today our services are focused on three key areas: coaching, marketing & development. Our mission is to help other people grow their business - like we have our own. We’ve gone from just $5000 in the first year to over $3,000,000 in sales this year.
