About Us​

My journey to becoming a business coach started in 2011 when I finally left a 10-year-long career in corporate America. I hung up my suits to smell the fresh air as the start of my entrepreneurial journey as a small business owner. Since then, I have built upon what I learned in my corporate role and applied it to my small business, successfully growing our company. Throughout my 13-year journey as an entrepreneur, I have experienced many changes, from launching my company through acquisitions and absentee ownership. So, I have years of formal training and situational leadership that I can apply to your business to help you achieve your goals. My experience, proven results, and the various challenges I have overcome make us the best solution to help you overcome the day-to-day challenges that you experience in your business.

Career Timeline

Chad Gilbert - Career Timeline - Entrelooop

The path to becoming a business coach started in 2010 when I founded A Gogo Event Rentals and ultimately resigned from my ‘9 – 5’ corporate job. I built an event and party rental business from the ground up with a $300 pick-up truck and about $3,000 in inventory. We experienced substantial growth, doubling our revenue in four years by providing a clear marketing strategy, an excellent customer experience, enhanced SEO, streamlining operations, and a few other tricks. Once we hit our revenue goal, we shifted our business to focus on profitability by identifying our ideal customer, systemizing, reducing our delivery area, and further streamlining our operations. 

My company eventually merged with another local company I worked for in college. This enabled us to provide more growth opportunities for team members, reduce expenses for both fixed and variable costs, increase profitability, and diversify owner responsibilities. One year later, we acquired an indoor company to extend new product offerings to our customers and provide more long-term employment opportunities to our staff. From there three months later, Covid hit, which had a near-catastrophic impact on our company. Leveraging our outdoor business, further streamlining operations, key employees, a lot of recruiting and onboarding, expense reduction, restructuring, some PPP money, and a lot of blood, sweat, and a few tears, we rebuilt the company, putting it back on track. 

Those challenges created a lot of deep reflection and a need for prioritization. The company’s management was turned over to leadership within the company so that I could pursue my passion for helping business owners, and I founded Entreloop. 

Leveraging over a decade of business ownership experience, we will partner to empower you and your business to overcome the day-to-day challenges of operating a business, achieve your goals, and position your company for long-term success.
