Grow Your Business in the Next 12 Months with Entrepreneur Andy Angelos

Learn how to grow your business from the right person: someone who has actually done it. Andy Angelos launched SocialKaty, his second major startup, with just himself and a co-founder. Within a few years, they had raised venture capital, they employed 30 people, and soon they sold the business to a large competitor. In this collaboration with Eazl’s production team, you’ll take a trip to Chicago to meet Andy, plan your growth over the next 12 months, and learn how to grow your business.

Set Your Strategy, Create Your 12-Month Growth Model, and Learn How to Hire

In an entertaining format that blends entertainment (travel, street footage, and interviews with people who Andy worked with) and instructional design, you’ll learn everything you need to know about developing a growth strategy for your business. You’ll also get access to the Growth Modeling Tool that Andy built in Google Sheets which is an “out of the box” tool that you can use to create your own growth model and financial forecast. You’ll learn things like:

  • How Andy’s venture capital team used “Growth Levers” to scale SocialKaty
  • How to create a 12-month financial forecast with the Growth Modeling Tool
  • How to hire good vendors (like publicists and marketing firms) and teammates
  • ...and other things related to scaling your business

Who is the target audience?
  • This course is meant for entrepreneurs, small business owners, freelancers, and solopreneurs who are already operating a business.
  • This is also a great course for people who are in a product or service management role (e.g. responsible for P/L of a product or service line).
  • This course is not for people looking for a path to launching a business (though Eazl does have a course on that). It might be interesting to them, but this is more of an "intermediate" entrepreneurship course.
