One of the most difficult things to do these days focuses on leadership and keeping a “growth mindset.” Whether you are a manager, GM, owner, teammate, or colleague at a business, college, university, or company, LEADERSHIP is one of the biggest challenges today for many people. Ultimately the success of an organization, team, or company is the people that drive the mission. And the key is to set a culture that ignites one’s passion, purpose, and ultimately IMPACT.


Today, we have my good friend Andrew Simpson in the house. Not only have I worked with him and mentored him for many years, but he also runs a 7-figure business that tripled in size during the pandemic. Let me repeat that, he TRIPLED in size. That’s called “growth mindset.”


In today’s episode, we go in-depth on the following:

- Why Andrew tripled his space during the pandemic from 5,800 sf to 17,000 sf.

- How Andrew and his team never wavered on their mission to grow.

- Staying in an obedience mindset and how his faith played a huge role in his expansion.

- Greatest lessons and opportunities during the growth period.

- Andrew shares his leadership hacks.

- The vision of his company in the next 3-5 years.

- Andrew shares great wisdom from his book “The Youth Truth,” including the two most powerful words a kid can say...

- Lessons for parents, kids, coaches, and entrepreneurs.


You’re going to love today’s episode from one of the strongest, best, and most heart-centered, purpose-driven leaders I know. Dig in and let me know what you think. Please don’t forget to share it. It really helps us grow the podcast and spread the IMPACT.
