Their are a few key things to achieve exponential growth. Your mindset is important to the success of any business owner. One of the key ways to grow exponentially is by choosing who you’re going to serve, because it gives you the opportunity to serve who you were not meant to serve.

When Alex was running his mortgage company, he was working from 7am to 11pm. One day he was sitting with his son and he realized that his business was taking him away from his family and he vowed not to let that happen.
