There's one word that never escapes us in the business world, no matter how hard we try: networking.
I work in the world of growth, marketing, and software. Over time, I've received hundreds of emails for advice on how others can adopt the growth framework. Most of these emails look like this:
I’m Joe Schmo from X Startup. We are in the Y industry.
Our problem is we aren’t growing as fast as we'd like to. If you were me, how would you grow the company?
My immediate answer? I don't answer. I delete these emails.
