Please, don’t be the same. The marketplace needs you, showing up vulnerably with a heart of service and a boatload of empathy for those you’ve elected to place into your care.

Is it an obvious question with an obvious answer?
“More money and stuff ‘innit.”
Let’s consider the reality of this, though:
Growth could mean more freedom to choose projects that engage you, or to choose only a tight-knit team you really enjoy working with, or to only work certain days or times. Freedom is an acceptable byproduct of growth.
Growth could mean making more impact in the areas you’ve elected to take responsibility for, be they charities, community initiatives, or philanthropic ventures. Making a difference is an acceptable byproduct of growth.
Growth could mean creating jobs for people who may not otherwise have them, or to build a culture that changes the culture. Making great environments for people to do meaningful work is an acceptable byproduct of growth.
Why do you want to grow?
