Jarod, you said it perfectly. WOW WOW WOW.

Best investment, and some of the best fun I've had in a long time. Grow 2011 through www.martygrunder.com was definitely one of the best investments my team and I could have made for this year. Everyone else out there that missed it.... your loss- but come in 2012!

Jarod and John are completely right. This is hands down the most effective and educational conference I have ever attended. I can confidently say the things I picked up at GROW, are hard if not impossible to find anywhere else!

Jarod, thanks for turning me on to Marty and the GROW event. You were right about it being such a great event with the greatest people.

Shawn

Here's the last one with John being interviewed by Marty.

Several others I got a chance to meet from here and network with. Some of whom I went out to dinner with. Great bunch of guys, we'll do it again. And I will tell you the guys below are the up and comers. You watch!

What a great time with everyone. Jarod, John, I hope we get the chance to get together again sometime.

What an invaluable investment. The first 5 minutes into the whole thing I was locked in. It's like Jarod said, if you looked at your watch at all during this (or fell asleep), you need to reconsider being in business. Most of the thoughts and ideas are such easy things that most business overlook. I'm not going to get into details, but it's as simple as being disciplined and implementing them that will take you and your business to the next level.

Grow has got me more excited for spring than I have been in a few years, and am definitely looking forward to going in 2012 already.

It's about $550 a person for the conference, plus hotel and food. If you go, and don't think its worth that, then there's something seriously wrong with you.

The other funny thing to add to Iowa's comment. If you are sitting there, having consumed four cups of coffee, and won't get up to run to the bathroom because you are afraid you'll miss something important......its a good conference.

I believe it has probably been about a month. Curious to this new division that you're launching? I sure I'm speaking for a few others as well.
