Costel Iftime


My mission is to help you craft a winning strategy for building a sustainable business!

About me

I have over 10 years of business experience and over 100 books read on the subject. I have built two businesses, and now I'm working to develop the third. 

I have a unique blend between, lessons learn by trial and error, books and mentoring that helped me understand the framework for building a sustainable business.

Over the years, I encountered many barriers that were good learning experiences. I tried to learn something from every one of them. Therefore I build a system for myself, to analyze the results of my decisions, to reflect on the outcome and try to improve my decision making system.  

I realized that with knowledge, as with investment, the key is to be constant and consistent. If you put in enough effort, over time you will experience a compound knowledge effect, that will help you connect the dots.

I started sharing this knowledge, accumulated over time, for you to use it, without waiting 5 or 7 years to develop it by yourself. 

Why I started this website?

To be an entrepreneur is a lifestyle. Things are always changing. Every day you encounter new challenges, every day you need to learn something new. 

In order to succeed, and to enjoy the ride, you need to have a strategic approach, and a student mindset. Always looking to learn and always searching for gaps in your knowledge and judgment. 

In my entrepreneurship journey, I had over 10 000 hours of practice. 

Building two businesses, I often had new challenges to overcome through trial and error. 

Not giving up, learning by doing it, making mistakes, reflecting on them, researching, and continuously making systems to avoid them in the future, helped me understand the strategic framework for building a sustainable business.

Looking back, and realizing that some mistakes that I have done could be avoided, made me take the decision to share with you all this experiences. This is why I decided to share the strategic framework that I have developed over time, with the main scope of helping you craft the winning strategy for your business.

This is how Strategic Kingdom was born. 

I don't promise you any shortcut. To be an entrepreneur is a lifestyle and you need to put in the work if you want to succeed.

If you are an entrepreneur and you feel the need to build your business around a framework, or if you are thinking of starting a business and you didn't find the right framework yet, you are at the right place.

I will guide you through a step-by-step strategic framework for building long-term business success. 

If you are determined to build a sustainable business, let's get to work!

What can you find on this platform?

I will present you a strategic framework that will guide you, step-by-step, through the entire process of building a sustainable business. 

From making an industry analysis, to finding the right positioning strategy and making an MVP, all the way to finding the funding for scaling up the business.  

At the same time, I will try to give to you additional learning resources for the specific concepts we will discuss, and templates/tools to implement what you will learn. 

How to make the best out of this framework?

All of us have a different level of knowledge on different subjects. Some of us may have better knowledge of marketing, other on accounting. 

If you are an entrepreneur and you are trying to build a sustainable business, I promise you, this strategic framework will help you better understand the steps that you need to make, for building long-term business success. 

For taking the best out of your time invested in reading his materials, I would recommend you to follow the next steps: 

  1. Start from the first step.
  2. Go step-by-step through the entire framework. 
  3. If you understand all the steps just from reading the articles, try to make a study case with your business. 
  4. If some steps are not clear, or you feel the need to dive deep, read the recommended resources. 
  5. Use the templates found at each step, at the bottom of the page (available for free) and try to test your business against them, or use them to shape your future business from the ground up.
  6. If something is missing, I will be glad to answer you to any question you may have.
