Who Are We

What started as a way for our founder, Steven, to break free from just being an employee soon became a process for anyone to break away from the corporate grind. Steven started his first publication over 12 years ago but quickly realized that by systematizing the challenging aspects of printing he could offer this to anyone that had a passion for their community and a desire to own their own business. He and a few others then launched City Lifestyle and below is where we are today.

You can break free. We understand it can be overwhelming or scary to stop what you are doing and start your own business, but we have a system, it is proven, and we are with you the whole time.
