“Although the information, wisdom, and self insight I have gained in the first week has been incredible, the most valuable and rewarding part of my experience has been the relationships. Every single person (and that is not an exaggeration) that is involved with GrowthX and GrowthX Academy is WORLD CLASS in every way imaginable. I am surrounded by some of the most brilliant thinking, huge hearted people, I have ever been associated with.”
