"Why do some businesses take Off to seven-figures in revenue quickly...while others seem to stall or never take off in the first place?"

"What do they know that the others don't?"

These are questions that I've been obsessed

with for 20 years now.

And since you're an entrepreneur, these questions have probably kept you up at night at some point or another, too.

"Why Do Some Businesses Take Flight To Seven-Figures In Revenue Quickly...While Others Seem To Stall Or Never Take Off In The First Place?"

Image

"What do they know that the others don't?"

And with good reason! All you have to do is look around and you'll realize...

The numbers aren't pretty...

The best stats I can get my hands on indicate that - of the millions of businesses operating in the United States - only 7% reach $1 million or more in annual sales.


That's frightening! 

And keep in mind, those are TOP LINE sales numbers...NOT profit!


Given that the average profitability of small businesses is in the single digits, the money these owners get to take home paints a picture that's even bleaker!

The reality is that most businesses are struggling to make ends meet.

I don't know about you...but I didn't become an entrepreneur to just 'get by'.


Nobody in their right mind would give up the security of a good job and a steady paycheck with the goal of just 'getting by' as an entrepreneur.


Nobody dreams of taking on the incredible challenges of creating something from scratch, just so they can struggle to put food on the table each day.


Yes, the 'climb' and the hard work that goes along with that is part of the deal, but only because there is something on the other side of that climb that's worth it.


Just 'getting by' doesn't cut it - not for you or your family.


A healthy business must grow.


In fact, a mentor of mine, the great strategy and advertising man Robert Bloom, says that...

"A flourishing business should double 

in size every five years."

It's ambitious, but I agree.


There's too much risk, too much stress, and too many long days and late nights to have it make sense any other way. 


And there's no reason to accept anything less, because it's clear to see that...

in every industry there are businesses that overcome the challenges to create rapid growth...why is that?

Even in industries that have brutal competition, there is always someone that finds a way to stand out and create rapid growth.


Why is that?


That's the question that I became obsessed with.


As I've heard Tony Robbins say many times, "Success leaves clues". 


I became obsessed with figuring out how to grow businesses.


So, I went on the hunt for answers.

And fortunately...I found them.


I've been fortunate to build seven-figure businesses four different times - in IT Services, Agency Service, Information Publishing, and eCommerce.


One of my businesses was recognized as one of the fastest-growing companies in the United States three years in a row by INC Magazine (although it wasn't my fastest-growing business...that came later!).

In the process, I opened offices across the country, with teams in Boston, Denver, and Santa Monica, and close partners in just about every major market in the country.


We even acquired businesses...


And eventually got acquired ourselves:


but trust me...it didn't start that way.

I struggled as much as anyone to get my first business to grow.


In my first year of business, we did $65,000 in revenue.


That's not bad for a first year...until you learn that I had three employees and was renting an office in downtown Boston!


I was in debt up to my eyeballs, had my first child on the way, and felt a tremendous amount of pressure to make something work.

And then this happened...

Over the next few years, we grew so fast the wheels were nearly falling off the cart!


And that's when we earned that those INC 5000 awards as one of the fastest growing businesses in American three years in a row.

was it luck?

There is ALWAYS some luck involved in success...every honest entrepreneur will admit that! 


But I've been fortunate to replicate fast growth to seven-figures four different times in multiple industries IT Services, Agency Service, Information Publishing, and eCommerce.


In fact, my very next business grew much, much faster than my first: 

So, what changed?

It would be nice to tell you that there was some 'magic funnel' I could sell you...


Or that we created a new technology with a patent that I could license to you...


Or that if you just run your Facebook Ad campaigns in a certain way then customers will come pouring in...


The truth.

You've probably heard enough of the 'easy button' pitches about how to grow your business to know the reality:


There are 'easy button' sales pitches...and then there is the truth.


The truth is something much less sexy than an 'easy button' pitch, but much more valuable to you.


What changed is that I learned that...


While every business has its unique challenges...every business also has the same fundamentals that create growth.

When you learn to focus on those fundamentals...instead of the latest 'hack' or tactical gimmick, you can create fast growth opportunities in just about any business you decide to tackle.

Take my experience in e-commerce as an example:


We built a new business to be one of the 10 fastest growing on the Shopify platform in an industry I knew nothing about - based on the suggestion of one of my employees - primarily motivated by seeing if we could win their 'Build a Business' competition and get a free trip to see Richard Branson on his private island.


(Full Disclosure: That business later self-destructed, which created a lot of valuable new learning opportunities!)

I didn't win the competition, but I learned something even more important in the process...

I learned that you can enter any business - in any industry - with a set of tools that give you the confidence to know that you can create an engine that will fuel its growth...and fuel the lifestyle you deserve.


And a well-run, fast-growth business can be sold...which is where you as an entrepreneur really stand to benefit from all of your hard work!

where do you learn these fundamentals?

Well, after investing tens of thousands of dollars to get my MBA from the #1 ranked program for entrepreneurship in the world, I can tell you that it's not at business school!


Don't get me wrong, I learned a ton from the program and loved my experience there, but at no point did any person or course ever make clear:


"Here are the X things you need to have in place to have the best chance at growing your business to seven-figures and beyond as soon as possible."

Which seems crazy to me now!


Getting to seven-figures in revenue is such a critical milestone for demonstrating that you have a viable opportunity as an entrepreneur...


...and yet there wasn't a clear guide showing me what it takes?


I could show you a thousand business school case studies on how to raise $100 million from venture capitalists and take your company public...


...and I could show you one hundred different courses available on the market today about how to optimize campaigns on this ad network or that ad network...


...and yet there wasn't a single checklist of the factors that would give me the best chance to get my first seven-figures in revenue?!


It makes no sense.


Instead, I learned through tons of trial-and-error, reading hundreds of books, attending dozens of courses, and asking countless mentors.


And after seeing the same struggles of the thousands of entrepreneurs that I've worked with over the last ten years...


...it became painfully clear to me that our education system has failed entrepreneurs for decades.

Which is why I created...

Every entrepreneur I've met has felt...

Unclear about where to start, what to focus on, and what to ignore...


Frustrated that you seem to be working harder and harder but not making progress...


Unsure how you are going to differentiate your business from the hordes of copycat competitors...


Worried that you're going to be 'stuck' at your current revenue levels indefinitely.


You're not alone!

Every entrepreneur has felt that list of feelings above at one point or another...usually several of them at the same time!


But the best entrepreneurs commit to finding the resources and resourcefulness to overcome obstacles and escape the no-growth 'treadmill'.

Growth Accelerator Is designed to help you answer those questions and get your business on track for seven-figures FAST!

The Growth Accelerator program is for your if:

  • You're just starting your business and want the knowledge and resources to shift the odds in your favor.
  • You have been in business for a while but feel 'stuck' and realize that there is something missing that is preventing you from reaching your full potential.

Here is what you'll get from the Growth Accelerator program...

a Clear understanding of your ideal target customer

  • Find the ideal target customer that can buy from you at the volume and price points you need to grow profitably.
  • Get to know the pains, goals, and 'talk-tracks' happening in their minds related to your products.
  • Learn where they 'hang out' so you can target them effectively with your ads.

An 'Uncommon Offer' That Differentiates You From The Competition

No matter how exciting your vision and strategy are, you must have something to offer your customers that is clearly different from the competition. It's called an 'Uncommon Offer', and there is a process for creating one.

  • 'Map' your competitors' offers and identify gaps in their value propositions to attack and exploit 
  • Create an offer that is clearly different from your competitors and that has both tangible and emotional benefits for your customer
  • Create differentiation that is impossible for your competition to 'funnel hack' 

A Clear value proposition Statement that powerfully resonates with your target customer

  • Clarify your Value Proposition so that your products and brand stand out from the competition.
  • Create a clear, concise statement so your target customer immediately recognizes that you what you have is for them.

'Power Messaging' That tells your story and sells your difference 

Selling features and benefits isn't enough. You must have a 'Power Message' that sells your story and your difference to get through to your prospects.

How to Create an Elevator Pitch

  • Differentiate your brand from your competitors by identifying the clear message attributes you want to own.
  • Use your messaging in various forms throughout your sales and marketing process to get in the door and close more sales.
  • Tell the stories that emotionally connect with your prospects and create a relationship that goes beyond transactional.
