Growth With Purpose: How to Grow Your Business Without Imploding
March 6, 2020 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm
Emerging entrepreneurs mistakenly think they need to grow fast and at all costs. What they don’t realize is “pedal to the metal” growth can be detrimental to the business, and instead they should strive to achieve the right rate of growth.
There is a rational, mathematical model around how much your business should grow based on what it needs. To calculate that model, you need to set realistic and intentional goals of how to live life. Get off the hamster wheel and make steady, deliberate progress with something called Growth With Purpose.
In this TIGER Talk, you will learn how to:
• link goals with growth
• create a plan that helps your business grow at a healthy, deliberate rate
• understand how every decision should support your business’s purpose
• immerse yourself in the appropriate entrepreneurial ecosystem
• assess the amount of risk that’s okay to take on at certain stages of your business
Randy Gerber is the founder and principal of Gerber, LLC., a professional services firm focused solely on improving the lives of first-generation entrepreneurs. He and his team help clients take care of the details and align their business and personal lives, enabling the business owner to focus on growth with purpose – a process that betters themselves, their families, their employees, and, ultimately, the community.
Randy is a graduate of The Ohio State University’s Fisher College of Business. He has formal training in investment fiduciary responsibility, and has been recognized as an outstanding financial advisor by Raymond James Financial Services each year since 1999.
A first-generation entrepreneur himself, Randy has written a new book about the five stages of success a first-generation entrepreneur goes through when launching a new business. The book, “The Integrated Entrepreneur: Achieving Happiness in Relationships, Business & Life” describes how to successfully integrate work demands with the many personal relationships in his/her life. Citing personal experiences and real-world examples, Randy’s book gives every first-generation entrepreneur the clarity and direction they need to be a success in both business and in life. The book is scheduled to publish in the spring of 2020.
