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 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 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.

An exit strategy is something you need to be thinking about from the first days of building your business.

It sounds strange to say but if you’re not beginning with the end in mind, you won’t build your business to be sellable when and if the time comes. Today’s guest, Randy Long, is a Certified Financial Planner, Exit Strategist, and has recently written a book about what it takes to successfully sell a business, “The Braveheart Exit.”

Randy and I talk about the biggest mistakes business owners and entrepreneurs make when selling their business, why you need to build your business TO sell even if you don’t think you’ll be exiting it soon, and much more...

Build your business with an exit strategy from the beginning, even if you never think you’ll sell it.

Why? It’s pretty simple. First off, you don’t know that you won’t need to sell your business someday. It’s better to be prepared than unprepared.

But second, and maybe more importantly, you want to structure your business in ways that give you maximum freedom. That means you’ll create systems and add team members that enable you to get OUT of the processes of your business. That way you’re experiencing the lifestyle freedom you want AND your business is ready to be sold and handed over to someone else should that time come.

This episode is about the long view - and it’s a view that adds greater value to your life, the life of your team members, and the world.
