This gets said sooo often in many different ways. We are constantly being told to get out and do something we wouldn't normally do. To do things outside your comfort zone, where the magic happens.

..so why is it still so hard to do.. and why do we need to do it? And even more importantly, how do we do it?

It's hard to do because its uncomfortable, it causes a level of anxiety which our bodies and minds perceive as danger and find excuses to retreat back to safety, in the comfort zone.

However being just outside our comfort zone, where you get that small amount of anxiety increases your performance and productivity. We get lazy when things are too easy and do the minimum required to get by. Get outside that zone and you become focused and driven.

When you choose to take risks in a controlled environment, forcing yourself into a place of uncertainty, you also get better at dealing with it when life throws it at you unexpectedly. You become more comfortable being uncomfortable so when life forces you out of your comfort zone, you don't fall down a cliff.

The more you push your boundaries, the more you'll be able to keep pushing them, expanding where your comfort zone actually lies so that the things that were difficult and induced anxiety become easy. This is how you create growth.

Trying new things can make us reflect on our old ideas and where they clash with our new knowledge, and inspire us to learn more and challenge confirmation bias, our tendency to only seek out information we already agree with.

This doesn't always mean going out and jumping off a cliff or facing your biggest fears every weekend.

It can be as simple (perhaps not as easy) as slowing down and taking the time to look at what's going on in your life, and being honest with yourself. It can be challenging yourself to respond in a different way than you always have.

5 things you can do this week to get outside your comfort zone:

  1. Switch up your routine - Routines are as much about comfort as they are about efficiency. Having good daily habits are important but they can always be improved so you need to be comfortable with changing them. There's no harm in going to a different cafe, hanging out with different people, having dinner at a different time, if your life allows, have a day off on Wednesday. 
  2. Move toward your fears  - I found that the things I’m afraid to do are often the things that have the greatest potential to expand my life. Now when I feel fear, it’s usually an indicator that I need to do that thing I’m afraid of. Making a commitment to lean into that each day has been really uncomfortable at times, but it has also been responsible for a lot of great memories and a deep level of personal satisfaction. - —Mark Krassner, Expectful
  3. Give Up Control - This was a big one for me a couple of years ago, the mere thought of handing over any part of my business to someone else made me nauseaus. Over time though, as I let go and trusted other people to manage my social media, my accounts, my flight bookings, it became so comfortable for me I was named the "Delegation Queen". If you're one of those people that can't watch someone else chop vegetables because they're doing it wrong, it might be time to start finding ways to give up control in different area's of your life. 
  4. Agree to something you wouldn't normally consider - This can be fun. All it takes is for you to say yes to completely random things that get put infront of you, that you'd normally say no to without thinking. Eat the weird food. Go on the crazy adventure. Play the game of sport you know you'll suck at. Do the live video interview. You'll get some amazing life experiences and guaranteed laughs doing this. 
  5. Get infront of the camera - Speaking of live videos, I know this is one that makes you all uncomfortable, it even makes me uncomfortable if I havne't been doing it consistently. We live in a world of video content and video search. If you can get comfortable with this, it will serve your business greatly. Create landing page videos, tutorials, do a live stream. The more content you can create the better, the more comfortable you get infront of the camera, the better your videos will be. 

As soon as it starts to make you uncomfortable, you know you're doing it right, and you keep putting 1 foot in front of the other, 1 little baby step at a time. It's not supposed to be easy, it's not supposed to feel amazing, that's the whole point. And once you know that, it's far easier to follow through as you become comfortable with being uncomfortable.

 


Knowledge can be the most useful resource you will find. It can help you make more money, be better at sports, make better decisions, grow as a human and as almost anything else you can think of.

Getting access to knowledge isn't difficult, there are millions of books, podcasts, online trainings, videos, seminars and coaches all trying to shove their knowledge down your throat. We live in a world of information overload. The problem with this, is people are finding and taking on board what already aligns with their current belief system, to confirm with themselves what they are doing right now is correct, and never really taking on board anything new or changes any of their behaviours or habits based on new knowledge or beliefs.

 

And even those that are finding new ways of thinking and new knowledge, they still go "Well that's awesome, I can see how that would benefit my life, I should give it a go" but they never do.

 

The people that succeed, I mean really succeed and are continuously growing and expanding and doing better and better and the things in their life.. they take action. Knowledge, without action, is useless.

In all of your knowledge acquiring, find 1 thing at a time to take action on. Write it down, and work on it until its a habit. And then you can take on another thing and do the same. And slowly but surely over time, you will have completely changed your knowledge, your beliefs, you action, your habits and your life.


If you don't do the work to keep moving up, you're doomed to go downhill.

-Geoffrey James

If there's anything that's true in business and in life, it's change. And change means that each element of your business and your life is either improving or deteriorating. Because nothing ever stays the same.

Take your health, for instance. Depending upon the choices you made during the day, your body is either stronger than it was yesterday or it's weaker. You've either extended your life or accelerated your demise. There's no in-between.

Similarly, depending upon the actions you took during the day, you have either grown your company's revenue, profit, and potential or you've shrunk them. There's no in-between.

A couple of days in a downward direction won't kill you or your business. However, it's extremely easy to build momentum when you're headed downhill. Building upward momentum is more difficult. It requires constant effort.

Here's how you build upward momentum:

  1. Make a list of at least six areas of your life and work that are important to you.
  2. Resolve to take at least one action, every day, to improve that area of your life.
  3. Schedule those actions into your daily routine.
  4. Execute on your plan.

For example, here's my list from a few years back:

(The orange points in the list are Hannah's current list for a Savage Example )

  • Sales. Call or email at least one prospective client.
  • Sales. CALL at least one prospective client. Consultants that get on the phone always win over the ones that email all day
  • Health. Do at least 15 minutes of aerobic exercise.
  • Health. Do at least an hour of exercise I LOVE doing
  • Family. Make at least one person in my family feel incredibly loved.
  • Family. Message, email, call, snapchat, message, visit, as many family members as possible
  • Networking. Call or email at least one business contact.
  • Networking. CALL at least one business contact. See above point on calling. 
  • Financing. Take at least one action that give me more control over my finances.
  • Financing. Check in with finance manager on activities daily. I am not a finance genius. I should not be in charge or in control of this. 
  • Creativity. Do at least one creative activity that's not business writing.
  • Creativity. Spend an hour every day doing creative things. Finger painting, turning mango's into men, making gifts for friends and family. 

What I've discovered is that acting upon those resolutions, day after day, week after week, create upward momentum in the areas of my life that previously had a tendency to get shoved aside and therefore go downhill.

What I also discovered is that, because these small actions ensured that I would give attention to these areas of my life, I usually found myself doing more than the minimum that I resolved to do.

Just as important, knowing that I was address these otherwise-neglected areas freed me from the burden of worrying about them when I was hard at work.  That allowed me to get more done in less time.

Try this method for a week.  Once you feel the upward momentum, you won't want to stop.

Note from Hannah: Once you have the upward momentum, your life will amaze you every day, and it will be almost impossible to stop unless you consciously make the decision to stop.

The ancient Greeks recognized the connection between the mind and the body. It's taken a long time for Western medicine to adopt this notion, yet science continues to prove—over and over again—that there's a strong link between our physical health and our mental health.

If you're feeling down and you don't know why, or if you're worried about your financial situation, "positive thinking" might not be the solution. Sometimes, the best treatment involves doing something different with your body, not just your mind.

As a psychotherapist, I'm fortunate to work in a comprehensive health clinic that provides everything from dental care to podiatry. Working with physicians to treat the entire person is instrumental in addressing patients' overall health and well-being.

If you're struggling with psychological distress, there are many ways to treat the problem. Here are five simple ways you can use your body to heal your mind:

1. Walk to reduce depression

Multiple studies show physical activity can be an effective treatment for mental health problems—and you don't have to do intense cardio to reap the benefits. Studies(link is external) show that 200 minutes of walking per week (less than 30 minutes per day) greatly reduces depression and improves quality of life. In fact, some studies show walking can be just as effective as taking an antidepressant.

But it's not only people with depression who can experience the mental health benefits of walking. Taking regular walks boosts emotional health for people who aren't depressed as well.

2. Smile to decrease physical pain.

Researchers have discovered there's some truth behind the old saying, "Grin and bear it." If you're in pain, smiling can help you feel the discomfort less intensely. Frowning, on the other hand, can intensify your pain.

Studies(link is external) show how smiling influences your physical state: A smile can decrease your heart rate during a stressful activity, even if you don't feel happy. So the next time you're about to undergo a painful procedure, think about your "happy place," or a funny joke, and it might not hurt as much.

3. Take deep breaths to improve attention span.

A few minutes of deep breathing can improve your concentration, and counting those breaths can be especially beneficial if you're a heavy multitasker.

Studies(link is external) show that people who multitask have trouble taking tests and performing activities that require sustained concentration. Taking a few deep breaths can provide an immediate boost in focus, which can improve performance.

4. Do yoga to reduce stress and the symptoms of PTSD.

Almost anyone who enjoys yoga likely already knows that it can reduce stress. Research shows how yoga increases the level of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA)—a neurotransmitter—in the brain. And increased GABA levels may counteract anxiety and other psychiatric conditions.

Studies(link is external) have also found yoga benefits people with post-traumatic stress disorder(PTSD). When compared to a control group, people treated with trauma-informed yoga classes show a significant decrease in PTSD symptoms.

5. Lift weights to combat anxiety.

About 15 percent of the population reports frequent bouts of anxiety, which can typically last for 15 to 30 days per month with symptoms including nervousness, fear, apprehension, and worry. Without intervention, anxiety can lead to poor sleep, aches and pains, poor health, and physical limitations.

Studies(link is external) show that weightlifting is a meaningful intervention for anxiety. Perhaps the best news is that you don't have to do high-intensity weight lifting to reap the benefits. Studies show that moderate-intensity resistance training is more effective at reducing anxiety than high-intensity resistance training.

Build Mental Muscle

Building mental strength isn't just about changing the way you think. Sometimes, a few simple changes to your physical routine can be instrumental in training your brain and healing your mind.

Leaders come in different forms, from parents and mentors to sports coaches and authors. Everyone is a leader in their own way, despite the fact that, for some, it's not always a conscious choice.

In a 2017 presentation at Berkeley College, Jodi Grinwald, a CPC and certified master practitioner of the Energy Leadership Index™, defined a leader as anyone who interacts with others.

Energy Leadership™ is a discipline that develops one's personal influence style so that it positively impacts the manager and, in turn, those around him or her.

'When practiced with intention, this process can drastically improve your personal and professional relationships, which, in turn, can transform your business.'

To be an effective leader, the first step involves familiarizing yourself with the principles of Energy Leadership™ and its seven levels of leadership, said Grinwald

"Determine which … level is yours, and [whether] it's a negative one. Having that sense of understanding is the first step toward making a positive change," she said.

Level 1

These leaders are critically self-aware but fail to take action. Level one leaders typically have low self-esteem, work in crisis mode and lack productivity.

"Some leaders have little to no passion or commitment to their company's mission," said Grinwald. "They may not remember it because they are (usually) reacting to crises, and they don't have a real plan for where they are going. Their communication skills are poor to nonexistent, as is their ability to truly inspire and motivate others."

Core emotions: Guilt, self-doubt, hopelessness, fear, worry, depression.

Level 2

For these leaders, actions and results come from a place of anger and defiance. The focus is on others, stress, disappointment, resistance, struggle, control and entitlement.

Often interactions with these types of leaders feel like a zero-sum game, in which their world is made up of winners (them) and losers (everyone else). It's not uncommon for Level 2 leaders to be micromanagers.

Core emotions: anger, resentment, hatred, blame, greed, discord, pride.

Level 3

It is at this level that there is a distinctive shift between fear (Level 1) and negative energy (Level 2) to positive energy and a willingness to accept responsibility for one's actions.

Level 3's thoughts are positive, and their emotions come from a place of forgiveness. Actions and results may include rationalization, justification, tolerance and coping.

Core emotions: relief, peace of mind.

Level 4

This leader's focus is on their team. They genuinely care about others, and they don't take anything personally. Instead, they are able to view circumstances and people objectively. They are playful, generous, supporting, helpful and self-caring.

Grinwald noted that this kind of leader performs best in human resources, customer service and sales because of their exceptional people skills.

Core emotions: compassion, love, gratitude.

Level 5

Leaders who operate at a Level 5 live to the fullest and don't let the past get in the way. They are open-minded and focus on the organization as a whole rather than just themselves.

Often, when faced with a challenge or threat, these leaders view them as an opportunity for growth and development. Further, these individuals don't try to change differences in others, but instead focus on accepting and reconciling differences.

Core emotions: peace.

Level 6

These leaders are driven by their intuition, and they are often creative geniuses and visionaries. Individuals at this level of leadership see others around them as an extension of themselves, which fosters an attitude of empowerment and achievement among team members.

"With Level 6 leaders, everyone always wins," said Grinwald. "These leaders are brilliant and conscious leaders."

Core emotions: joy.

Level 7

The seventh and highest level is often the hardest to achieve, and few people have ever experienced it. It's characterized by a complete lack of blame, shaming and fear of failure.

Level 7's feel don't make any judgments and, unlike Level 2 leaders, feel that winning and losing are illusions. They're fearless, and they create and observe at the same time.

Core emotions: passion.

Ultimately, said Grinwald, when you are more aware of your leadership style and the impact it has on your employees and co-workers, you can study the other leadership styles and work toward being the type of leader you want to be.

For more information on Energy Leadership™, check out Bruce Schneider's book, which introduces and explains the concept.

Mentors can be invaluable to any entrepreneur. No matter how accomplished you are in forming and running a business, there’s always someone who knows more and can pass some wisdom on to you. However, too often mentees make the mistake of not realizing that coaching is a two-way relationship. As important as it is to find the right coach, it’s also important to be open to what that coach will teach you.

In his decades as a speaker, author and businessman, Tony Robbins has had the opportunity to serve as a mentor for a large number of entrepreneurs and professionals across all industries. I recently spoke to Robbins as he prepared to mentor entries to Shopify’s Build a Business Competition. The well-known business strategist and author of the new book “Unshakeable” teamed up with the commerce company to guide budding startups. He shared his insights on what someone can do to be truly coachable.

 

Mentees are teachers, too.

Robbins has had the privilege of coaching some of the most successful people of our time, including Paul Tudor Jones II, one of the top financial traders in the world. During 24 years as his mentor, Robbins found he’s constantly learning from Jones. When someone is successful, it’s easy to credit the coach for that success. But Robbins says he’s found his best students are those who teach him too.

“I’m constantly looking for any insight that can take things to the next level,” Robbins says. He’s also mentored Salesforce’s Marc Benioff for the past 14 years. “I’d be an idiot to think I’m only mentoring him. I’m constantly learning.”

 

Beware of fear.

In his experience, fear is the single most difficult thing to overcome in the coaching experience. If a mentee is afraid of being coached, that person may not be as receptive to the lessons he or she needs to learn to be successful. This often is rooted in a fear of failure, which can be devastating in the business world.

“Business is constant adaptation, constant growth, constant flexibility, and that requires that you know who you’re serving but it also requires that you become a learning machine and that you don’t take anything as failure,” Robbins says. “It’s all learning.”

Robbins says if you’re trying anything new, failure will be constant. Those who don’t fail will likely be swept away by someone more innovative. Therefore, you shouldn’t fear failure because that just gets in your way. Instead, focus on learning more and more.

Learning to listen.

In the early days of growing a business, some entrepreneurs feel that not listening is an advantage. Many founders say it’s too common for people to say what they’re doing won’t work. Many feel it’s better to avoid such distractions, keep their head down and work hard on their product or service. However, don’t let that stop you from finding a mentor who you can listen to. If you’ve got someone whose advice you trust, it’s always a good time to recognize the benefits they can bring to what you’re doing.

“Your threshold of control as you stay in business grows,” Robbins says. “Unless you’re constantly adapting, your threshold of control is going to happen sooner. If you push yourself in the middle of your fear and find your way through, all of a sudden what used to be scary is easy.”

The value of mentors

Without mentors, entrepreneurs must learn by their own experience only. Robbins says this is the most painful, expensive way to learn how to build and operate a business. Instead, he believes that success leaves clues. He believes through modeling, you can avoid all of those wrong turns that delay your success.

“If someone else has succeeded on a huge scale and they consistently produce results, then they’re not lucky,” Robbins says. “They’re doing something different than everybody else and if we sow the same seeds, we can reap the same rewards.”

The fastest way to accelerate your progress as an entrepreneur is to find a good mentor and learn as much as possible. But you must first get past your fear of failure, as well as any fears you have about being coached. Doing so will be great practice for the many challenges you’ll face over the years as you find new ways to grow your business and excel in your chosen career.

Seriously this is one of the best articles I have ever read about Hammocks. I had no idea there was so much science behind the "Business Hammock".

Alice asks her father, “Have I gone Mad?” He answers, “I’m afraid so. You’re entirely bonkers, but I will tell you a secret – all the best people are.” - C. S. Lewis

Let me get right to it: Being an entrepreneur and running a company (even when you're the sole employee) is like living life on a roller coaster along the erratic path of a heart rate monitor.

At its peaks, entrepreneurship is easily the most rewardingandenlightening experience I've ever undertaken.

At its low points, it's discouragingisolatingand relentlessly stressful. And it can wreak havoc on your health.

It's those low points that many entrepreneurs don't like to talk about.

And I believe there's a good reason why: Being positive in the face of adversity, showing strength instead of fear, and confidence in place of self-doubt - these are some of the most necessary (and expected) qualities for an entrepreneur, or any leader, to have.

But ask anyone who's been mentally, emotionally and physically taxed with starting and growing a business about their mental health and, if they're sharing the truth with you, you may be shocked by what you hear - no matter how successful and happy they may seem:

A recent survey found that 30% of entrepreneurs report ongoing depression in their daily lives. Another 27% reported feelings of anxiety and another 29% experienced symptoms of ADHD. Startup Grind reports that a staggering 72% of entrepreneurs are affected by mental health conditions. In the tech community alone, a survey by Open Sourcing Mental Illness discovered that 51% of those surveyed report that they have been officially diagnosed with a mental illness of some form.

The de-romanticizing of the entrepreneurial life is gaining attention - and that's a really good thing.

In Forbes, Amy Morin wrote about the darker side of being an entrepreneur: the stress, the isolation and the reality of depression, addiction and anxiety. Kevin Xu speaks to the detrimental effects mental health can have on one’s company and recommends a few ways of managing mental health as an entrepreneur.

Fifteen years ago I started Trek Light Gear because I was searching for balance - I knew I needed a way to balance a busy life and a passion for adventure along with the need to get a good night's sleep and recharge my mental well-being at the same time. And that was even before I understood the toll that starting a small business would take on me.

For over a decade now, I've been living the entrepreneurial life with all of its highs and lows, uncertainties, and challenges. And if there's one thing I know for sure it's that self-care is crucial to mental wellness.

A leader must first take care of themselves before they can lead others.

This need for self-care is easy to forget with a never-ending to-do list, but this is precisely when self-care matters the most.

Consider a car. When you go on a long road trip, would you avoid filling up the gas tank because you're worried about how many miles you have to cover on the trip? We all know the answer - if you avoid filling up because you're too busy or too worried about the future your car will break down, and so will you.

Self-care refills your gas tank so you can go further. And it works best as prevention, not cure.  

HAMMOCKS AND MENTAL HEALTH

At Trek Light Gear we've got a saying:

“You should spend 10 minutes in a hammock every single day. Unless you're too busy, then you should spend an hour.”

The quote is more than just a cute tagline; it's rooted in science.

Dr. Jennifer Akullian, a psychologist working with dozens of entrepreneurs and developers in the fast-paced, high-stress tech community, explains that swinging engages the vestibular system, which is responsible for balance and focus and plays an even bigger role in emotional regulation. Experiencing a gentle swinging motion can also improve attention and facilitate calm.

Spending time swaying in a hammock is inextricably linked to self-care and positive mental wellness. And of course, if you're thinking of sleeping in a hammock on a part-time or full-time basis there's been a lot of research showing that sleeping in a hammock is really good for you. Surprised? You shouldn't be.

Taking the time to relax, re-focus, and re-fill your “tank” is the key to a well-balanced life.

A hammock is a simple, centuries-old solution, that forces you to slow down and disconnect - it gets you swaying, relaxing, and de-stressing - all steps necessary to improve your mental health and help prevent issues down the road.

If you're an entrepreneur and any of the above hits close to home, it's time for you to invest in your own self-care before the burn-out (or worse) begins.

THE ENTREPRENEUR'S GUIDE TO HAMMOCK SELF-CARE:

  • Have an Office Hammock
    • If you've got the space in your office, have a hammock (or a few) available just like you would a couch or a comfy chair. Look around - do you have exposed ceiling beams or wall supports you could hang a hammock from? If not, don't fret, you can easily use a hammock stand to put a hammock wherever you want it indoors or out. A hammock frame is also easy to move where you need it (hammock meeting!) and is easy to pack away if you need to reclaim the space.
  • The Hammock Lunch Break
    • Lightweight portable hammocks pack down into a tiny carrying pouch and can be easily setup and taken down in mere seconds. Next time you're thinking of eating lunch at your desk or spending your lunch break staring at your phone in a Chipotle, choose instead to head outside and spend a quick 10 minutes (or more) in a hammock. Forget the view - your mid-day hammock spot can be in the office parking lot, what matters is that you take those few minutes to float freely and break away from your routine.
  • Be A Hammock Digital Nomad
    • Hammocks aren't only beneficial when you're taking a break, they can actually fuel your productivity. If you work remotely, it's time to trade in your coffee shop routine for a hammock and a hotspot. With technology these days it's easy to work from a hammock in a relaxing and inspiring location and still use a tethered phone or wi-fi hotspot to remain productive and connected. (Pro-Tip: When you post that "Today's Office. #hammocklife" picture on Instagram, just be prepared for the jealousy that ensues. And don't forget to tag us!)
  • Be A Hammock Boss
    • Happy employees = happy boss. If you've got employees, show them that their mental health and happiness is important to you by giving them the best employee gift ever. By encouraging your employees to take hammock breaks when needed and to spend their weekends getting outdoors and disconnecting you not only get to look like the coolest boss ever - you'll be investing in their mental health and happiness and that's an investment in your own as well. (Bonus: We can even make your business custom branded hammocks with your logo...justifying the tax write-off just got even easier)

Are you ready to see what the effects of spending a few minutes in a hammock can do for your mental health, your business, and your happiness?

(Here's my favorite hammock in case you're wondering)

Whether you're a startup founder, small business owner, freelancer or digital nomad - we're here to help!

From going all out to create a hammock lounge for your employees or just advising you on the best way to hang your hammock anywhere, let us know what we can do to help you find balance and promote a healthy self-care routine.

If you're an entrepreneur and you've already incorporated a hammock into your self-care routine I'd love to hear about it in the comments.

(And if you're not an entrepreneur but you now wish your boss would invest in some office hammocks, you might want to share this post with the management)

Linear Thinking

Most businesses and business owners think linearly. Linear thinking tends to be small and focuses on incremental objectives. How can you squeeze a little more margin from your service? How can you cut a few extra expenses? How can you make this task a little more efficient?

Some examples of linear thinking:

“Let’s set a revenue target of 10% this year.”

“We can save 5% by ordering 2 more days in advance.”

“We can create a marketing campaign that will see ROI of 20%.”

These are fine goals for most companies in the world. Rising revenue and better margins are never a bad thing. But what if you didn’t need to settle for incremental improvements? What if you could think bigger and actually achieve bigger?

 

Exponential Thinking

In steps exponential thinking. Let’s say you wanted to grow your company by 1,000%. Would you make the same decisions under the 10% scenario as you would under this 10x scenario? Very unlikely. But most CEO’s, business owners, and managers are comfortable with the status quo and 10% keeps the status quo comfortably in place. This is linear thinking – predictable and achievable with only modest effort.

Some examples of exponential thinking:

“What can we do to grow by 10x?”

“Let’s set a goal for achieving zero marginal cost.”

“Create a marketing campaign that achieves 500% return.”

Most would shudder under such lofty goals. Can you imagine giving your marketing department a mandate that they should achieve 5x the investment for their activity? I’m sure they wouldn’t just run another newspaper advertisement or radio ad. They’d probably end up rethinking their entire process and approach. That’s what it takes to think exponentially: a new, sometimes radical approach that shakes up the norm.

The power of digital marketing on small and medium-sized businesses can be exponential, if you let it. The investment is low enough to achieve astounding returns on your marketing dollars. By segmenting and capturing your website traffic and nurturing them into customers, you can create a powerful tool that grows your business. An automated tool can attack, attract, and convert 24/7. You don’t even need to let it take a break to use the restroom.

These tools do require a different approach than the traditional marketing you’ve done. Even having a social media page isn’t enough anymore. Today’s marketing is both well-planned and agile. It is highly data oriented and focuses on results – not just views, clicks, or eyeballs.

Are you ready to give your business an exponential advantage over your competitors? Are you ready to change the way you approach your marketing to grow your business faster than you thought possible?
