Episode 21 - How Amazing Was GrowthCon?

Can you believe GrowthCon2021 is already over? We learned so much! Let’s talk about all the highlights with special guests!

There are so many entrepreneurs, business owners and employees that are just tired; tired of giving and seeing no return, tired of giving 110% only to feel like a failure, tired of struggling to keep the doors open, tired of having no one to turn to for legit advice and so much more.

Having someone to turn to, a mentor, a coach, a friend, a teacher or another leader that can guide you to make not only the best business decisions for yourself, but decisions that will impact your family, your employees and their families and life in general is crucial.

That is what 10X GrowthCon is all about; mindset, motivation and momentum! It’s not just another business conference! Hearing stories from real business owners about how they went from nothing to 20 million in revenue, and listen to Celebrities “normalize themselves” and show you how they accomplished every battle they were presented with to get them where they are now. GrowthCon also provides endless tools to your personal toolbox which makes this conference as “not to be missed” and “most valuable conference” year after year.

We want to recap 10X GrowthCon5 for those who were not able to make it. Here with us is Maryam Al Ali, Christopher Dunson, David Bange, Bill Hauser, and many more special guests! 

Seriously tho… this is NOT a Be Growth Driven episode miss!  Watch the episode on our YouTube so you don't miss out on any of the action! 

You never know who else we will show up….(hint, hint) ;)
