    In business we are taught that more success breeds success, but is that really true? We don’t think so, at least for us, the most growth we ever had in our company was at the coattails of failure.

    It was because we failed and had to find so many solutions in our business that we discovered our Leads Accelerator Process.

    Being first is always better…

    When it comes to marketing, being first to a platform allows so many advantages that you wouldn’t have if you came later. Imagine being on Instagram and building an audience in 2010 vs 2020.

    Before you jump on the platform, though, make sure you have a strategy. Even i...
