Dear Jay,I recently had the pleasure to work with your company. From the first phone call to the last e-mail, it’s been an awesome experience. Here’s why…
After directing commercials for the past 25 years, this is the first time I have set up a business. I was always led to believe that being “bad at math, but good at art” meant the business world was not for me. The opposite is true - I’ve had a blast, and my experience in managing crews and budgets has given me a strong sense of who is a solid player, and who is to be avoided.
Since February I have been assembling my team of app developers, business planners, and IP lawyers. Along the way I've filtered through my fair share of nerds, “geniuses”, numbskulls, thieves, pirates, shapeshifters and windbags, while at the same time discovering angels, sympathetic advisors, and avuncular helpers.
Naturally your employees and experts fall into the final category. I had reservations about hiring a “company” rather than an individual, but then my phone lit up with a call from Melissa Welch. Melissa immediately set the tone with her knowledge, confidence and the large amount of sense that comes out of her mouth. She also refused to let me talk over her. This is a big one – it’s a bad habit I can blame my mum for… Of course I don’t like it when people talk over me, but when I get excited and animated I tend to cut people off in my race to divulge the next piece of amazing information...
Melissa was having none of this, and calmly steamrollered through my ill-mannered cutoffs, completing her sentences with calm and aplomb. I immediately knew I was in the presence of a higher power; the company that hired this woman must have known what they were doing, so I shut up and let her complete her explanations.
In our first meeting, both Melissa and Philippe clearly took me through the full process of how Growthink takes ideas like mine to a place where they can be presented for investment. Then they Skyped in Lee Muhl, and that’s where the plane really left the ground. Lee and I immediately connected and not only did he entirely “get” my business idea, his knowledge and strategy far surpassed any of the other business plan gurus that I had previously spoken to.
Lee might be the kind of person Star Wars characters are based on. His epic attention to detail and intuition confirmed I had taken the right approach in raising my own standards and taking a bit more time to find just the right helpers, rather than settle for someone average who’s just doing it for the paycheck. In this way, the right people have basically dropped into my path – Lee, Melissa, Growthink, the right IP lawyers, etc. I’d recommend this approach to anyone; it’s so worth taking the time to get it right.
The birthing process wasn’t limited....- on Friday the 13th September I became a father again, and the first congratulatory package came not from friends or family, but from Growthink. My son was soon wrapped in a beautiful soft blue blanket. Then a second Growthink package supplied him with a onesie… such attention to clients doesn’t go unnoticed and obviously comes from a company culture that nurtures in every way....
I can honestly say the experience with Growthink was awesome and I’d be happy to recommend you guys to anyone who will listen – as I already have… Really, I can’t shut up about you all. If you see some guy with a beard chasing people out of an elevator or down the street with his fast talking, that is no crazy person - that’s me, talking about you guys.
In the meantime, thank you again for establishing such an excellent company and for hiring the most awesome people. I wish you the best of luck with your business and will keep you informed of mine.
Best wishes and warm regards,
Happy Birthday to Growthink President and co-Founder Dave Lavinsky! Dave - to your success and have a great day!!
