Growth to Freedom™ - Transform Your Life, Business, and Relationships with Clarity, Confidence, and Direction

Freedom only happens when you are driven by purpose. As one of my friends Joe Polish (of Genius Network) says: “… if you want a breakthrough, you’ve got to break something…” The Growth to Freedom™ Show helps you transform your life in business and in relationships. It’s a fresh mix of strategy, resources, and entertainment that guides you to create the personal and business breakthroughs you need. Your success and freedom will only grow to the extent you do, and the The Growth to Freedom™ Show will help you find clarity, confidence, and direction. Two weeks after my son was born in 2007, I found myself in a hospital for four days with a serious heart problem. The fact is, I had let my health go to the extent that my body gave out. It was a major wakeup call. That experience opened a new door of awareness for me. I came to realize that if I wanted something different, I needed to do something different. If I wanted something better, I needed to do it better. We’re living at one of the most exciting times in history and I believe you can have freedom on your terms. You can have it all, if you’re willing to take the necessary steps. It’s not easy. I’ve certainly made my share of mistakes and I want to help you avoid those on your own journey. This show was born as part of my process and was inspired by Joe Polish, Genius Network, and many mentors I’m also fortunate to call friends. It doesn’t matter what your background is or where you’ve been: It only matters that you want to grow.Whatever your definition of success, I will challenge, guide, and connect you to some of the best leaders and experts in the world today. Now is your time - you deserve it! The catalyst for greatness is inside of you, and it starts now with Growth to Freedom! Insights and strategy from experts like - T Harv Eker, Craig Ballantyne, Dan Sullivan, Strategic Coach, Genius Network Joe Polish, and more (what about that?) - these aren’t the experts I have interviewed, however excerpts from their ideas.

As a leader in your family or business, have you found that at times there can be friction in the way you, your partner, or stakeholder(s) operate? One type of Leader is the Visionary. The other is the Integrator.

When these two leadership types come together the right way, you get more growth, direction, and impact. On the other hand, when it doesn’t gel, the ride can be incredibly bumpy and in some cases a mess.

Today’s conversation centers around his most recent book which he co-authored with Gino Wickman, “RocketFuel: The One Essential Combination That Will Get Your More of What You Want from Your Business.” This focuses on the main point of the book, that business leaders typically fall into one of two categories: Visionary or Integrator. By finding which one you are and pairing yourself with a business leader with the opposite set of gifts and skills, your business can accelerate at full momentum.

Mark C. Winters is a seasoned entrepreneur whose business career spans over 25 years. His experience ranges from multi-billion dollar global enterprises like Procter & Gamble and British Petroleum, to startup ventures originally conceived on a napkin over coffee. It’s a background like this that enables him to identify patterns of success as he sees them and apply them to virtually any business scenarios.

In this interview with Dan Kuschell, you’ll discover Mark’s passion for helping entrepreneurs get unstuck. Mark has a talent for introducing just the right combination of perspective and process that sparks teams to start moving in the proper direction with clarity or move faster.
