How Do Small Companies Grow Into Big Companies? - That simple question is at the heart of Breaking Through the Barrier. It's not about theory; it's about discovering what successful people have actually done. It's not about a few isolated instances; it's about the universal principles and proven practices that catalyze growth time after time in business after business.

Our process was straightforward. We asked businesses owners in most every geographic region and in every imaginable industry how they operate their businesses and how they live their lives. We conducted in-depth interviews with owners who have succeeded in breaking through the barrier and with owners who are still stuck in the "Mom & Pop" Trap. We fielded surveys and developed business owner self-assessments, and all of this work continues today.

As a result we can tell you specifically what separates businesses that grow from those that just muddle along. We can help you identify and eliminate the obstacles that impede your growth. And we can show you how to leverage your existing strengths to take your business to the next level.
