How it works...
  1. Apply here. We're looking for entrepreneurs who legitimately need help with a problem, make their living from their business, and are prepared to be open, honest, vulnerable and REAL.
  2. We contact you to get additional details, schedule your session, then dive into PREPARATION, creating a SWOT analysis with lots of innovative ways to solve your problem and grow your business.
  3. We record your strategy session with Steve Faktor - you get no-BS advice Steve's clients pay hundreds of thousands of dollars for - from startups to major brands, like American Express, Hallmark, Intel and Samsung.
  4. We promote each episode to Steve's 600,000+ social media followers and thousands of email subscribers - all potential customers, investors, or business partners. We'll let you know when it's out so you can share it, too.
  5. If you'd like our help beyond the session (ongoing strategic advice, help with products and services, business plan prep, introductions to our network of corporate partners, customers, distributors or investors) we'll be happy to discuss an arrangement, as long as we believe we can help.

Think of GrowthFaktory as a no bullshit MBA for business owners.

Each week on our podcast, author and innovator Steve Faktor will feature a real entrepreneur with a real business challenge and help them solve it. The best part is - you get to eavesdrop on the whole conversation. We’ll cover everything from: how to come up with a great idea, find customers, hire great employees, and secure business partnerships.

We’ll go deep into the psychology of what it takes to succeed - and help tap into your inner purpose. Do it well, and purpose will transform your business into a religion - and your customers into disciples.

Our goal is simple: to help entrepreneurs succeed. To provide better tools, financing options, networking opportunities, and powerful advice that drives growth.

Don’t forget to follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. There, we’ll post YOUR stories - and feature the best ones to Steve’s 600,000+ LinkedIn followers. Interested? Send us a short video or work selfie telling us: what’s been your biggest challenge and how are you working to overcome it

Look forward to you joining us, it’ll be a great ride!
