Advisors Grow Update: Creating the Campaigns

Mindmap of one of our campaigns.

I want to start sharing regular status updates on Advisors Grow, the “marketing as-a-service” company we’re launching soon.

My thinking is if I share snapshots like this consistently then down the road readers will be able to look back and see how this company was built from the ground up.

If we do well they’ll serve as real life business lessons of what to do.

If we fail they’ll be lessons of what not to do. 🙂 So either way, it’ll be helpful.

The Problem with the “If You Could Do Anything” Question

What do you really want to do?

I mean really?

If you could do anything what would that be?

That’s a hard question to answer, isn’t it?

That question paralyzes us because we’re suddenly presented with an infinite amount of options.

Should I go back to school? Start a business? Quit my job? Go into ministry?

There’s so many options it’s overwhelming.
