The 5 Catalysts of 7 Figure Growth (CareerPress, 2006) provides the answers.
In this age of demanding customers, unreasonable suppliers, cutthroat competition, and dispassionate employees, Business Development Consultant Andy Birol cuts right to the core of what owners need to grow their businesses—and how their vendors, staff, and advisors can raise their own value by helping them.
Birol identifies five business development fundamentals—or catalysts—that drive profitable growth, showing how they lay the foundation for daily decision making, strategizing, and implementation throughout the life cycle of a firm. He discusses each catalyst within the context of specific financial milestones—from starting up, to reaching specific sales targets ($1 million, $5 million, $10 million, $25 million and $50 million), and finally to succession, transition, and handoff.
Blending canny analysis with “workbook” exercises and real-life anecdotes of successful client and national companies, The 5 Catalysts of 7 Figure Growth provides a roadmap for systematic growth that is anything but predictable. Birol’s edgy enthusiasm, ironic take on pop culture, and unshakable conviction in the strength of business owners and those who serve them will keep you reading—and laughing.
Whether your company is brand new, established and growing, or stuck in the status quo, The 5 Catalysts of 7 Figure Growth will help you understand where it is, how it got there, and what you must do now to take it to the next level.
