Making 6-figures but struggling to take the next big leap?


CEO Entrepreneur: The Firestarter Programme

A tailored 12-month programme that takes you from being a functional cog in your company – to leading your business and getting the lifestyle you’ve wanted all along!

Do you remember why you started your own business?

The passion. The flexibility.
The financial freedom.

And yet here you are...

You’ve achieved the dream 6 figures but you’re still stuck in the trenches, overwhelmed by decision fatigue and rather than moving forward and looking at the bigger picture, you’re a hamster on a wheel, spinning every plate – okay, we’ll stop with the analogies, but you get the gist!

Reignite your entrepreneurial vision with CEO Entrepreneur: The Firestarter Programme

A comprehensive 12-month programme for entrepreneurs committed to growing and scaling their business with a passion for succeeding.

Why 12 months?

Because it’s a marathon, not a sprint.

The Firestarter Programme is designed to support and encourage business owners like yourself, to understand the roadblocks in their way, and light up their path to success.

This programme, unlike many others, is results-driven. It is customised to you!

It will inspire you, encourage you, support you and challenge you in ways you didn’t think were possible!

If you’re looking for a quick win, you might as well click on the cross in the corner.

But if you’ve got the grit, determination and fire (pun intended) to keep persisting even when the going gets tough, this is the
right programme for you.

Whether it is lack of strategy, not having clear systems and processes or failing to outsource, 95% of businesses fail in the first few years and many small business owners get in the way of their own success because they simply don’t have a clear direction of where they are headed.

The Firestarter Programme supports you in breaking that cycle.

Become the CEO of your business

Spark your company’s success by focusing on the bigger picture.

Transform yourself from a small business owner to a CEO who thinks and acts strategically, builds a team, automates processes, and STOPS micromanaging

This may be a bit harsh, but…


Becoming the CEO of your business means disrupting a few comfortable patterns and growing your business, without the growing pains

Building a 6-figure business is a fantastic achievement. It takes a phenomenal amount of work, drive, blood, sweat, and tears (...and a bit of madness). BUT this is the problem that stands between you and the next big leap: there has to be method in your madness.

Your business cannot realize its full potential if you are in the thick of it 24/7.

CEO Entrepreneur: The Firestarter Programme

Being a CEO isn’t just for high level corporates; it is the ability to run your business effectively, with a clear, strategic and passionate plan that helps you achieve that lifestyle and vision you have been dreaming of.

Step out of your comfort zone and achieve the growth you deserve.

Over the course of 12 months, you will be surrounded by a kickass community of business mentors, fellow business owners and our dedicated Programme Facilitator, who are right there with you – encouraging and supporting you every step of the way.

Boost your:

  • efficiency
  • brand awareness
  • sales
  • customer
  • satisfaction
  • business growth

Hi, I’m Tamer Shahin –
CEO @ CEO Entrepreneur

I’m a serial entrepreneur, investor, business coach, and mentor but most of all, a serious coffee drinker (none of that fake, instant stuff; that’s not coffee – that’s just sad).

I help transform 6-figure entrepreneurs into the CEO of their business so that they can scale and grow.

You can trust me (I’m a doctor
but that’s not why)...

Experiencing the highest highs and lowest lows that the business world has to offer, was quite the learning curve…

I’m using everything I’ve learnt to advise, guide and inspire business minds like you so that you can implement and achieve the business of your dreams.

The CEO Entrepreneur: The Firestarter Programme came as a result of me sitting down and thinking “how could I show someone how to grow beyond a 6-figure business?” (There may have been a little bit of The Prodigy involved)

How do I know how to do this?

Because I’ve done it many times.

Oh, and I’ve also failed catastrophically and went into £2 million worth of personal debt, but that didn’t stop me.

Yeah… it was a tough time and one that presented a lot of learning opportunities but you know that saying, what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger?

I wear mine as a badge of honour as I have experienced the best and the worst that entrepreneurship has to offer. (Let me assure you that one is definitely more fun than the other.)

Some of my key achievements include:

●  Running a company valued at $100 million
●  Growing and scaling multiple 7-figure businesses (and learning from those that didn’t!)
●  Speaking at TEDx, and being published in Forbes as a digital health thought leader
●  Advising country ministers on national policy & multi-billion-dollar productivity programs
●  Building my way back up after losing everything.


Are you ready to earn your stripes?

Becoming the CEO of your business requires big changes in your mindset. You need to be able to inspire, innovate and lead from the front. You need to reframe how you approach, automating processes, delegating, and navigating the minefield of finances and systems.

Become the leader your business needs.

Many entrepreneurs burn out trying to scale up – and we’re not going to let that happen to you. It can be overwhelming being a business owner, which is why we are here to support you through this journey, because we have been there, done that and got several t-shirts.

Yes, that’s all great but how does this help you?

I’ve advised:

Jaguar, Ford, British Aerospace, Rolls Royce, Nokia, UK, Ministry of Defence, and the UAE.           .

So you get world-class advice

I’ve published:

Earned my PhD at 24, featured in TEDx, Forbes, international textbooks, two books, and on many major global platforms.

So you get powerful insights

I’ve founded:

Several companies, most globally successful, some acquired, and the odd one winning awards and global regard. 

So you’re supported as founder

I’ve managed:

Startups, platforms, companies, and a multi-billion dollar national productivity fund in the United Arab Emirates.

So you get management brilliance

I’ve crashed:

When I failed, I failed big – and the lessons from losing it all made subsequent success so much more rewarding.

So you learn how to make friends with failure

I’ve influenced:

I was named a global influencer in health, and spoke at TEDx.                                                               .         ...

So you grow and become more influential

This programme has been carefully designed by me and my team to help you grow from being a solopreneur of your business to the CEO of your business over the course of 12 months.

What can you expect in
The FIRESTARTER Programme?

Group coaching calls with tamer shahin

Get those burning questions answered by Yours Truly

Some areas you’ll master fast, others will really push you and won’t be so easy. This is normal! Group coaching calls (via Zoom) give you time to have your questions answered, helping you absorb the material you’re learning and implementing over the 12 months. 

Entrepreneur mastermind pods

No Business Owner is an island

You’ll be paired into a group (or what we fondly call, pod) of five fellow entrepreneurs, who are going to be your support system for the 12 months. It will be a chance for you to network, collaborate and problem solve with like-minded entrepreneurs who understand the challenges you are facing as a business owner.

Rest assured all participants are carefully selected to ensure they have the right calibre, contribute to the group and keep each other accountable.

Dedicated programme facilitator

  • 100% committed to put in the time, work, and attention for 12 months
  • Committed to supporting others and consistently showing up
  • Open to new ideas and want to be creative with your solutions

This is NOT the programme for you if you are:

  • You still need to reach the 6-figure mark (...keep going! You’ve got this!)
  • You are satisfied with staying under the 6-figure mark for now
  • You are hoping that joining the programme will magically do all the hard work for you
  • You are not willing to step out of your comfort zone and listen to new ideas and constructive feedback

Tailored to your business...

The Firestarter Programme brings a high level and tailored programme to help you achieve YOUR outcomes.

After your initial assessment and with periodic check-ups, we course correct your programme to help you get everything in place to achieve it.
