My Story

Colton founded FoxFuel Creative out of his basement in 2015 with two best friends.  This was possible from the boostrapping start up method of financing (selling retirement stock, putting a 2nd mortgage on the home, etc.) They were cash flow positive in 90 days and did $1.4m in their first year of business.

At FoxFuel, Colton serves as CEO and is responsible for client relationships, guiding the discovery process through brand strategy into early creative concepting. With more than 15+ of marketing/branding/digital experience, Colton has worked with Hilton Hotels, TSA Pre-Check,  Chip and Joanna Gaines, Pinnacle Bank, HarperCollins, Private Equity companies and dozens of major health care providers  (Ascension Health, Lifepoint Health, HCA, CHS, Covenant Health,Team Health, etc.)

Colton has been a member of the Entrepreneur’s Organization since 2017, and has been certified by ForumSherpa as a trainer/facilitator for forums since 2019.  He has developed custom content for entire chapters, spoken at Forum Health summits, and facilitated retreats and boosts for EO, YPO, and Harvard Business School Alumni Forums.

Using his EO experience, Colton founded a similar peer group experience for the Nashville Jr. Chamber. He created the curriculum, trained all moderators, and has managed the program for 5+ years, offering the Forum experience to non-entrepreneurs who would still like to have a close council of friends for personal and professional growth.

Colton lives in Nashville with his gorgeous wife Aly, daughter Maggie and his dog JT. He loves people, and he loves knowing their stories.
