I hope you’re ready and open to changing yourself. Often, we think the reason we’re in a slump is because of someone else. We want to grow our business but we need others to change. Maybe we need our existing staff to “just get it.” Or we need our existing customers to “just get it.” Unfortunately, most of the time we have to change ourselves first.



So, get ready to listen, learn, grow, and thrive.



Are you struggling with how to grow your organization? Don’t you wish that there was a playbook or recipe that you could follow? Like trying to push through a solid block wall? Or trying to drag your team uphill?



Learn The Formula To Success



As leaders in a growing organization, we've had the pleasure of meeting with hundred of leaders that have grown small companies into large organizations. When asked the key to growth - we’ve heard it all. One thing that we have realized is that everyone has their own journey and not all leaders experience the same struggles. But, there are key principles across the board. There are keys to success. And on this podcast, we focus on pulling those “keys to success” out and giving them to you on a silver platter. But it’s not just our guests. For the last 5 years, we’ve been on our own journey. We on our own journey! We have grown our team and tripled our size! But that’s not good enough. We want more growth. Our listeners are alongside our journey. Our listeners get to hear how we apply our guest’s ideas into our business.

    Episode 8: Adam Hofman with CallRail.com - The Thrive Podcast

    I've been a product manager for CallRail for the last four years, give or take. I've been with the company a little longer than about four and a half years. Really, as a product manager, my main goal is to build, build products that are extremely useful to our customers and help them become more successful. So from the start, CallRail as a company has been all about how can we allow medical practices small to medium businesses, how can we allow them the ability to gain insight into how well their marketing is performing and to allow them to gain that insight, view the data, and to be able to make action or have actionable insight into those things and to take action, take action on those either by adjusting maybe a marketing campaign or using a different search keyword if they wanted to.

    Alan was a tremendous guest. I've met a handful of successful business owners that haven't been able to inspire people. Alan is NOT one of them. After sitting with him for less than an hour, I was ready to hang it up and go work for him! He talks about what it means to really care about your employees and how your growth is dependent on them. I want to strongly compel you to listen to this podcast if you're in the service based business!

Such an impressive story of such a humble friend that has been blessed enough to make business work! He started with a plan and ended up impacting lives of those he has helped along the way! Graham Smith's success has come over the years by having the opportunity to take different paths but always choosing to do things the right way.
