Without growth your company may not last long. In fact,  half of all new businesses  close their doors after five years. The more competitive the industry, the more important growth becomes. High growth companies enjoy  faster cash flows . Extra cash leads to more new projects, talented hires and satisfied customers.
  • Hire a team, not a bunch of quarterbacks;
  • Understand the SEO data, the cash flow, the profit and loss, the cost of goods sold, the balance sheet;
  • Build relationships with the customer, sales will follow.
