2014…..Ready, Set, GROW!  

I hope this message finds you off to a great start in 2014!

Today, I am excited to share with you the official launch of this blog and the consulting practice, CircleMakers, focused on transforming businesses with explosive growth strategy.

The name CircleMakers was inspired by the book, The Circle Maker by Mark Batterson; ultimately, a story that encourages the pursuit and belief in radical growth and the transforming impact of prayer.  In addition to the inspiration provided from the book during my own personal transition, forward progress in business and life happens in ‘circles’ – think…. wheels, gears, bulls-eye targets (goals!), ship-wheels, ‘circled’ ideas, inner-circles (you!), processes, kitchen tables, partnerships, families, and prayer.

Great strategy is not a straight line project with a start and finish, but rather a journey in repeatable practice that is tended-to, shaped, and enduring.  I would love the opportunity to collaborate with you and share the CircleMakers’ Growth Strategy Wheel and how it can be applied / customized to your business challenges.

In the spirit of ‘circles’ and the power in sharing with a community of like mind and heart, I invite you to connect with me here and here.  Additionally, if you are a person moving people and organizations forward, I would love to have you join the CircleMakers community on Google+ for BIG ideas, explosive strategy and thought leadership!

I would be delighted if you could share this blog with people in your community who also possess a passion for growth and forward progress.

Best wishes to you for a successful 2014, and I sincerely thank you for being part of my inner-circle!

Looking forward!
