This might sound like an exaggeration, but it’s really true: If I hadn’t attended Rick Sapio’s Business Finishing School (BFS), The Grow Network wouldn’t exist. That’s why I’m so excited to be speaking at BFS in February 2018 — and why I hope you’ll join me there.
Our world desperately needs solutions to its sustainability problems, and one way you and I can help solve them is by running sustainable businesses. BFS helps business owners achieve their fullest potential by focusing on transformational business principles.

I really want to meet you, and I’ll take you out to lunch!
Some people tell me I’m insane to work toward “Home Grown Food On Every Table.”
“You’ve got to be kidding me,” they’ll say. “Look at all the grocery stores and fast food drive-throughs. Your ideal is crazy. You’re never gonna get people off the couch to do that!”
I’ll admit that I chuckle to myself when that happens.
Because, the truth is, throughout all of human history, all we’ve ever had was homegrown food on every table. It’s only been in the last 60 or 70 years that we’ve started relying on this large-scale centralized food system …
… Which is clearly not working. (Did you know that for every calorie of energy in the food you eat, it takes 10 calories of energy to get that food to you? That’s obviously an unsustainable model!)
Honestly, whether or not I work toward bringing back homegrown food, it’s going to happen.
Still, “Home Grown Food On Every Table” is what gets all of us at The Grow Network up each morning.
It’s the “catalyzing statement” for our organization—the specific, measurable goal we are working toward.
Every enduring business needs one.
That’s one of the essential principles of sustainable business … and there are six more I want to share with you today in my next video chapter of Grow: All True Wealth Comes From the Ground.
Because there are tons of business opportunities out there for folks who want to make a difference while making a living. And, once you’ve figured out which business you want to start, you need to know how to make it successful.
Watch it to learn:

Then, I’d love to know your thoughts …

Which of these principles do you think is most important?
I really appreciate your input!
