CEOs with 1 – 10 Employees!
“Laurie Taylor’s Stage 1 Book: Survive and Thrive: How to Unlock Profits in a Startup with 1 – 10 Employees, provided so many ideas for my startup business, I was swept up and busy applying every detail. A budget doc here. A worksheet there. A website to look at over here. AN ENTIRE LIST OF RESOURCES AT THE END! These are the very challenges that has had me stuck in my own business.”
Poor cash flow and limited capital can force leaders to prematurely stray from the original core business by chasing projects that might bring in money. A STAGE 1 COMPANY NEEDS TO STAY FOCUSED ON ITS PRINCIPLE GOALS AND OBJECTIVES.
“This statement single handedly changed the direction of my business. I immediately took action and removed myself from those initial clients and projects that did not serve my end goal. As a result, within the SAME week I signed agreements with 3 new clients more in line with my business model and pay structure. As an added bonus, I will make more in one week, than what I made in an entire month with the previous direction.”

Read what other CEOs are saying about the value of understanding the impact of the 7 Stages of Growth.
“Nowhere have I ever found an incisive, insightful analytical tool like that offered by the 7 Stages of Growth. It makes charting a company’s growth as easy as painting by numbers.”
“As a fast-growing company, we struggled to keep our focus on areas that were critical for growing successfully. By working with the Stages of Growth, we discovered what our current operational environment really is, identified critical path objectives and developed a strategic set of initiatives that will become our roadmap for our future.”
“One of the biggest issues I struggle with as the CEO of a growing company is the unknown and having to make timely decisions with only 80-90% of the data available. One of the biggest attractions to the Stages of Growth X-Ray program is it helped my leadership team move from ‘wondering’ what to do next to ‘taking action’ through a detailed initiative plan built with confidence and organizational buy-in. This program allows a CEO to stop guessing at what he/she should be focused on and helps them identify exactly what to focus on. That’s a huge advantage to any organization.”
