My Personal Take:

Whether you lead a team of 1, 10, 100, or 1,000 – in this episode, Jay will introduce you to a concept he calls:
Hyper-exponential growth.
Yes, you can get ahead with incremental growth.
Yes, you can lead your industry with exponential growth.
But, if you focus on hyper-exponential growth – then the only competition you’ll ever have are the limits of your own imagination.
Once the introduction to the concept is done, he will share with you __ strategies to go from idea to installation inside your business.
That said, if you’ve already know Jay, then you know he compresses decades of expertise into a single paragraph.
Should you take the time to unpack it, the 6-7-8 or 9-figure profit potential for you, your business, and team, is yours for the taking.
