My 53 favorite quotes from GrowthCon

Uncategorized Mar 02, 2023

Recently Barbara and I attended GrowthCon, a business and leadership conference in Las Vegas. It was a different environment than the conferences I usually attend, but the guests and speakers were first-class.

I try to make every environment I am in an opportunity for growth. This was no different. I took lots of notes and had several personal applications to take with me. I wanted to share some of my favorite quotes with you. Here are 53 of my favorite ones.
