Who are we at CareerWow?

We believe in people’s potential. We are a company that believes wholeheartedly in people— and what’s possible in what they can accomplish when they put their hearts to it—and our goal is to help as many people as possible reach their financial potential and have a career and life they truly love and are proud of.  

We know the rules have changed. We also understand that the fundamental rules of making a living have changed forever. We know how frustrating it can be to work hard and still have financial frustrations and limits on how you spend your time. We understand that with the change in the economy, millions of people are deeply dissatisfied with their lives and opportunities.

We know it’s not your fault. We also recognize that many people feel it is their fault that they have not yet achieved their dreams in work and life. But we know this is not true! Most people are simply working in a model that does not work anymore. Have you noticed that the promises of the “job” economy—working hard for one company all your life and being rewarded with retirement—no longer exists?

Our Founder

CareerWOW was created by Burke Hedges and his team. Burke is on a mission to restore the American Dream to one million people through the CareerWOW path. Burke started out just like most of you. In the 1980ʻs, Burke worked as a laborer in a boat manufacturing plant making just $5.50/hr. Unsatisfied with trading his time for money, he eventually started his own business. He made $1 million in first year, but it cost $1.2 million to make it.

At the age of 25, Burke was totally broke, stressed, and worried about his future. He was using a Chevron Gas station card to buy food to feed his family. He was desperate to find the means to provide for his family and live a better life. Then, a stranger introduced Burke to a new model and guaranteed him that if he was coachable, worked hard and didnʼt allow anyone to steal his dreams, he could become financially independent and make a difference.

Burke decided to take a chance on himself. He had nothing to lose and everything to gain, so he started his new leverage-based business. In seven years, Burke built two-multi-million dollar organizations. Burke wrote his first two books, Who Stole the American Dream and You Can't Steal Second with Your Foot on First, and produced a best-selling video that generated millions of dollars in sales. He launched a National TV Infomercial with Baseball legend Tommy Lasorda, and started a multi-million utility construction business that is operating today, with 30 employees. Burke has authored seven books with over 4 million in print, owned three restaurants, worked with billion-dollar companies, and traveled the world as a speaker and consultant.

Years after Burke discovered his own “CareerWOW”, he witnessed the downturn of the economy and saw the hardship that millions and millions of people were experiencing. Burke determined to share his knowledge and experience to help bring the dream of career ownership to others.
