8 Steps to Bring Transformational Growth to

Your Business

by david r frick

EVERY owner wants growth. But what kind do you want?

Linear growth

Exponential (transformational) growth

To get exponential growth, you must transform your business!

To get exponential growth, you must transform your business!

1. Decide the following:

That you want it! AND that you deserve it.

Decide what you are willing to invest/change to achieve it (hint: The vast majority of your current systems and habits will not survive the transformation).

Detail the things that ignite your passions, creativities, and curiosities.

2. Write it down in clear language.

Refine ideas into simple terms or concepts that you can explain to others.

Write down fears & considerations clearly as well. Only once we admit them can we see ways to overcome them.

End dreams and desires with “… or something better”.

3. Share your dreams with others.

Share them with everybody. Say it like your 6yr old niece says she is going to be an astronaut or firefighter – with conviction.

Some will listen, offer to help, want to join.Most will ignore or laugh at your idea.

Accept help along your journey.It is not possible to do everything yourself.

4. Act daily towards dreams & desires.

Meditation is an action; as are planning, writing, talking, sharing, and engaging.

Take chances, gambles, guesses, and half-brained attempts without fear.

Keep diligent notes on your results and what you learn from such action.

5. Learn what you don't know.

Know enough to ask worthwhile questions and call someone out on BS.

Any topic can be boiled down into basic fundamentals to follow.

Books, blogs, & webinars offer big learning for little investment.

6. Celebrate often!

Having lots of appropriately-sized and properly-timed celebrations helps keep you and your team focused on growing.

Catch others doing great stuff; even if it is only approximately great.

Appreciation and gratitude can be expressed in millions of different ways.

7. Track your progress.

What things need to be measured daily, weekly, monthly, or annually? Every 5 yrs?

Dedicate yourself to a 20-year journey with lots of milestones, challenges, & victories.

Documenting and tracking progress helps provide powerful insights and positive momentum.

8. Help others along their journey.

Share ideas, information, and experiences or volunteer to speak with kids in school.

Help someone else accelerate through, or avoid challenges that slowed you earlier.

Every day is not only a chance to learn something new; but to help someone else learn as well.

“There is no such thing as magic pixie dust that makes your

business grow. It is the result of simple things done with rigor and

daily discipline.”
