Simon Severino - How To Think Strategically To Grow Your Business




What do most entrepreneurs and small business owners crave above all else? Is it money, time, freedom, or all of the above? For most of us, it’s a combination of these things. We all know what we want, but getting it is easier said than done. Simon Severino has been an entrepreneur for over 19 years. He’s executed hundreds of go-to-market strategies around the globe. He scaled his consultancy so that he could retire from operations. He now helps other entrepreneurs do the same.


Simon is the founder of Strategy Sprints, an organization that offers coaching, several free tools, and results. They also certify additional Strategy Sprint coaches. Simon’s new book, Strategy Sprints: 12 Ways to Accelerate Growth for an Agile Business, is all about growing revenue and scaling without sacrificing the business owner’s personal life. Simon is an agile expert and uses 12 assignments or sprints to make business leaders more impactful.


We dive into his blueprint for developing a vision, finding where you make the most money, and increasing those all-important conversion rates. Simon shares what it means to be a CEO instead of an operator who is too busy on fulfillment to work on the big picture items that matter. We talk about not letting your ego get in the way, writing down the processes, and embodying your vision. Simon shares a short 90-day decision-making process that will give you fast results. We talk about growth levers that will make a massive difference in your business. Simon shares a lot of value in this episode.
