If you ever get to an activity that seems like it is overwhelming or too intense/intimate/uncomfortable, then that is likely a sign of a stress point in your business. It doesn’t mean you are doing anything wrong, but it does mean that there may be some things you may need to address. In some cases they will be fears that need to be overcome, but in other instances, it might showcase a weakness in your team or that you may need to have partners in developing your business. These stress points are normal. That’s why this book exists in the first place.
Typically, when we encounter stress points, our first reaction is to ignore the problem. This time, when you encounter a stress point, we encourage you to work through it. Ask yourself more questions about why that particular area is a challenge for you. Take the time to wrestle with it.
Growing a business is hard work—but with the right resources, it’s not as hard as we sometimes imagine it to be. We hope this gives you an opportunity to discover entirely new things about yourself, your business, and your goals.

If you’re like me, you are just kind of doing what you see other people are doing and hoping to grow through it. I’m finding that only works to an extent and that I need an extra push to quote, “level up.” As I’ve worked through it, Growth has been what I have need to stab at the dark less and begin to meaningfully, intentionally, and comprehensively grow. Incredibly detailed and thought through, the exercises are what takes Growth to the next level, in my opinion. It’s what separates it from everyone that has told you, “Here is what I’ve done, maybe it’ll work for you.”, and gives you concrete steps through which you can uniquely build your business off of. But, don’t buy this if you don’t want to put in the work to grow. At least that is what I told myself. And it’s true.
I just downloaded “GROWTH” and haven’t had a chance to go through it in detail, but I am excited to start! I am just starting my business and just reading through the exercises and the topics covered, there are some invaluable tips and strategies that will help me stay focused and hopefully skip some of the frustrations of getting started. Could not have come at a better time!
I read through it all and it’s really amazing. I feel like you covered so much in such a practical way!
