This is the fastest way to get what’s in my marketing and business brain — into yours! 🧠

Because I want to help as many business owners as possible (as quickly as possible) go from feeling alone and like you're swimming in circles — to putting your efforts in the right direction (for you) with less stress, worry, and confusion.

So I only have one question... What are you waiting for?

Of course, you always have options. Instead of joining GrowthSquad you could...

  1. Attend Expensive Workshops and Conferences: Sure, you could drop a small fortune on workshops and conferences that promise the moon, only to find they offer insights you could have Googled yourself.
  2. Subscribe to a Plethora of Online Courses: Or, you might find yourself subscribing to endless online courses, collecting digital dust, because they're too general or too complex to apply to your unique business needs. (Listen, not to shit on courses too much, as a course creator myself — but sometimes you need a more personal touch)
  3. Buy Book After Book: You could also stack your shelves with the latest business books, hoping to find that golden nugget of wisdom buried in chapter 9 of a 300-page tome.
  4. Hunt Through Free Content Online: Maybe you'll brave the wilds of the internet, sifting through hours of free content, trying to piece together a coherent strategy from conflicting advice.
  5. Join General Business Networking Groups: You might join a few business networking groups, crossing your fingers you'll stumble upon someone who actually gets the specific challenges you face.
  6. Rely Solely on Trial and Error: Or, perhaps you'll decide to stick with the good ol' trial and error method, learning lessons the hard way and hoping it doesn't cost you too much time or money.
  7. Use Generic Software Tools: You could invest in generic software tools, only to find they don’t quite fit the unique puzzle that is your business strategy.
  8. Outsource to Various Freelancers: Outsourcing piecemeal to various freelancers might be tempting, but aligning them with your vision can be like herding cats... expensive cats.
  9. Wait for a Business Miracle: And of course, there's always the option of waiting for that business miracle – any day now, right?

The GrowthSquad Advantage: Or, you could skip the hassle, save the fortune, and cut right to the chase with GrowthSquad.

Here, you'll find not just the expertise and resources you need but a community of business besties ready to support you every step of the way.

Why gamble with your dreams when GrowthSquad offers a clear path to the success you've envisioned?

The choice is yours.

Questions that may have come up for you:

How does the private coaching work?2024-02-09T12:48:11-06:00

When you join before 11:59pm on February 29th (you super savvy person!), you’ll have access to schedule a private coaching session directly with your coach, Christine Mortensen. These sessions are designed to focus on your unique challenges, offering personalized strategies and actionable advice to help you achieve your business goals.

Since time is the one thing that doesn’t scale (at least not without the Jedi-level tricks you’ll learn in GrowthSquad), these one-on-one sessions are also only being offered to the first 10 people to dive in before 11:59pm on February 29th, 2024.

Valued at $300

Can I participate in the hot seats? How do I submit my work?2024-02-08T14:29:07-06:00

Submit your work-in-progress with a few business days notice so we can give it the time it deserves (along with our existing client work)!

Some examples of what you can expect to submit for review are below. Detailed submission guidelines will provided as we will cover a certain scope for each hot seat (e.g., 3-5 slides of a webinar you’re struggling with vs. an entire hour-long deck)

Why only $47 for the first 3 months?2024-02-08T15:20:59-06:00

Oh, you’ve hit the jackpot with this question! Let me break it down for you, smart cookie:

1. Idea Validation: Think of this as our ‘test before we invest’ phase. If no one’s biting, it’s a clear signal we need to tweak something – could be the message, the offer, or even the tech. It’s like business diagnostics, and guess what? You’re already getting the inside scoop. Learning is fun, right?

2. Building Momentum: Here’s the deal – momentum is like the secret sauce of any successful launch. It’s not just about making a splash; it’s about creating waves that keep rolling. By offering this no-brainer price, we’re gathering a tribe of movers, shakers, and boundary-breakers (yes, that’s you!) to kick things off with a bang. It’s about lighting that initial spark that sets the forest on fire (in a good way, of course).

3. Gleaning Insights from You, the Trailblazers: When you hop on board with us during this pre-launch, it’s more than just a transaction. It’s a handshake, a pact, an alliance. You’re not just buying; you’re contributing, shaping, and leaving your mark on GrowthSquad. We’re handing you the minimal viable product (MVP), and in return, we’re banking on your honest feedback and genius insights. And the cherry on top? You’re getting this at a price that’s pretty much a steal. Three months for the price of one? Yes, please!

4. Launch Fast, Learn Faster: Ever heard of ‘fail fast’? It’s not as gloomy as it sounds. It’s about launching quickly, gathering data, then iterating or pivoting as needed. It’s like business evolution on fast-forward. And you, my friend, are right there in the driver’s seat with us, navigating the twists and turns of launching something groundbreaking.

So, why $47 for the first three months? Because it’s a win-win. You get unparalleled access to GrowthSquad at an incredible price, and we get to build, learn, and grow with the best (that’s you!) by our side.

Can I get a refund if I don’t like GrowthSquad?2024-02-08T16:30:07-06:00

Dive into GrowthSquad risk-free! If it doesn’t zap your “business overwhelm” and supercharge your growth within the first 30 days, we’ll hand your money back, no side-eyes given. That’s our ‘Overwhelm Be Gone’ Promise!

After your first 30 days we won’t offer refunds; however, you can cancel anytime and you won’t be billed again — no questions asked. You will retain access to GrowthSquad content until your paid period ends.

Who wouldn’t be a good fit for GrowthSquad?2024-02-08T13:25:19-06:00
  • Anyone who doesn’t actually want to build a business.
  • Anyone who wants to stay quietly in their comfort zone and never take risks.
  • Anyone who is not coachable.
  • Anyone who needs 100 different opinions from 100 different people before they can make any type of business / money move.
  • Anyone who isn’t willing to commit and stick with a new idea long enough to see it actually work.
  • Anyone who’s only interested in taking, and not giving (this is a community, after all!).
  • Anyone who doesn’t want to put in the work.
  • We will give you the map and light your way along the path, but you’re the one who has to put on those big boy or girl pants and get to stepping.
Where will the community live?2022-03-09T22:10:54-06:00

After much consideration, we decided that the private community will be hosting via Sprk’d’s Slack account.

So no, it is not just another Facebook Group. We know that not everyone likes Facebook, LinkedIn groups (at the time of writing this) are mostly ghost towns or worse filled with spam, and many people don’t like the idea of having to install yet another new app on their phone or laptop. If Slack happens to be new to you, it’s really simple to get started and built for team collaboration.

What are the times and dates for Q&A/group calls?2024-02-08T13:37:39-06:00

Group call times and dates are designed with flexibility in mind, rotating to accommodate the diverse schedules and time zones of all our members. We aim to ensure everyone has a chance to join in, no matter where you are or how packed your schedule might be. Keep an eye on our calendar for the upcoming sessions and find the slots that fit your world.

What exactly is GrowthSquad, and how does it differ from other business coaching programs?2024-02-08T13:39:37-06:00

GrowthSquad is a unique business accelerator blending personalized coaching, a dynamic community, and an extensive resource library. Unlike other programs, we focus on practical tools and guidance, tailored specifically for coaches, course creators, consultants, and service providers, making your journey from overwhelm to empowerment not just a goal, but a reality.

What kind of results can I expect from joining GrowthSquad?2024-02-08T14:01:09-06:00

Members can expect significant transformations in their business efficiency, marketing skills, and overall growth. With our support, you’ll move from feeling overwhelmed to feeling confident and empowered, with tangible skills and strategies that impact your bottom line.
