Discover the 4 Decisions Model

Success hinges on four critical decisions in business growth. Get them right or risk losing substantial revenue, profit, and time.

The 4 core decisions for Growth are People, Strategy, Execution, and Cash™. While challenges persist in all areas, one often dominates.

Your initial task? Decide which to prioritize first."

Decision 1



Are you building a culture of people that are happy, engaged, and contributing as they should? If you had to start the company all over tomorrow, would you enthusiastically rehire everyone on your team?

People Tools: Scaling Up’s People tools will help you build a team that gets the right people doing the right things with clear accountabilities and metrics.

Decision 2



Do you have a solid top-line revenue growth strategy in place? The key to sustainable top-line growth is three-fold: knowing your core customer, developing a clear brand promise, and developing your BHAGTM for sustainable revenue growth.

Strategy Tools: Scaling Up’s unique One Page Strategic Plan will help you get key decisions made and everyone on the same page.

Decision 3



The first law of entrepreneurial gravity is “Growth Sucks Cash.” We encourage companies at any growth stage to calculate their Cash Conversion Cycle (CCC), which measures companywide how long it takes between the time you spend a dollar (marketing, design, rent, wages, etc.) to when you get that dollar back.

Cash Tools: Scaling Up’s Cash Conversion tool outlines the cash cycle and helps you work through concrete ways to double operating cash flow in the next 12 months.

Decision 4



One common challenge that quietly sneaks up on successful growth companies is the subtle transition from excellent, precise execution to passivity, complacency, and eventually poor execution. You can dramatically improve gross margins and profitability by tightening your execution habits while saving time.

Part of the end product in the class is for you to build an Execution Checklist of 10 habits that will reduce up to 80% the time it takes you to manage the business—freeing up leadership to spend more time on market-facing activities.

Execution Tools: The Rockefeller Habits Checklist tool is a framework that ensures routine and alignment in the company so you can be best prepared to execute your strategy.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is there a limit of seats per business?

Definitely not! There’s no limit of seats per business.

All our live sessions with authors and coaches are recorded and available on your learning platform. You will find them following the same steps mentioned in the reminder you receive a few days before the live classes.


I’ll be traveling/ busy during a lot of the live sessions, and I’m concerned that I’ll fall behind.

If you are traveling, you can always dial in from wherever you are. You don’t have to be suited up in the office to participate in the live sessions. If you are 100% sure that you will miss the class, you can still submit your question/ challenge/ feedback, and we’ll discuss it during the workshop or mastermind. As mentioned above, you’ll get the recordings of all the live sessions to keep for 12 months after the course end date.
