Elite Entrepreneurs Podcast

If you’re one of the 3-5% of entrepreneurs that’s grown their business to seven figures in revenue, congratulations! You are an ELITE entrepreneur. Few people can say they’ve accomplished what you have. I’m sure that success hasn’t stopped you from wondering: What’s the next step?

Getting from six to seven figures is a commendable and extremely difficult feat, but it’s not smooth sailing after you clear the $1 million mark. If you’re like a lot of entrepreneurs, you’re probably encountering a host of new problems you’ve never fought through before. Leadership changes, vision changes, and you might find yourself wearing ten hats in a given day. That climb up to $10 million seems insurmountable, right?
