Having achieved aggressive growth for nearly two decades, and creating a high seven-figure business, this successful entrepreneur of a US-based manufacturing company was at a turning point. His dilemma was whether to take the business to its next level of growth or to set it on cruise control and enjoy the fruits of his labor. His concern was that eventually, he risked losing everything and having to one day start over again. He knew if he decreased his daily involvement in the business growth would eventually diminish, stop and then become negative. Yet, he did not feel inspired to resume 16-hour workdays reminiscent of his start up stage in order to take the business to the next level. He was clear that:
- Despite being ultra competent, he did not know his next move.
- Not knowing his next move left him feeling restless.
- Lacking inspiration, energy and purpose, he knew something had to change – but was not sure what or how.
Rather than take the “same old” approach and focus on external matters such as succession planning or an executive search to find a successor, we developed an alternative. It was time for him to something different. Together, we set forth to reveal:
- What was truly driving him.
- His invisible opportunity.
- Roadblocks impeding his success.
- Personal changes essential for him to make to get to the next level.
His discoveries were staggering.
Armed with clarity as a strategic advantage, he now knew how to move forward efficiently and effectively. His personal transformation enabled him to:
- Springboard into his next big thing.
- Exploit his invisible opportunity.
- Reposition his brand strategically.
- Adjust the company’s course so he no longer had any competition.
- Scale the business to achieve triple digit percentage growth in revenue four years in a row.
- Recognize he was sitting on a billion dollar business.
Building wealth had been the entrepreneur’s primary objective until then. However, he realized his quest was no longer about money. Still, he’s making more than he had ever made before, and now banks compete for his business.
