...eliminate headaches, mistakes, confusion, long hours, setbacks and uncertainties most entrepreneurs mistakenly believe are just a part of business ownership?
...tap into the success secrets other business owners took decades to learn, in just a matter of months?
...know, with absolute certainty, what was going to happen next week, month and year?
Everyone thinks owning a business is glamorous, but it’s often just the opposite. It’s grueling, demanding, and mentally exhausting. You never know what challenges, hiccups, fires (call them what you like) will show up and creative havoc in your efforts to create a strong, healthy, profitable company.
You just need access to the insights, tools, and knowledge veteran entrepreneurs have already tapped. You need a full game plan on how to build a business designed to run smoothly, steadily increase profits, attract customers who want to buy from you, and keep those customers longer (all without working a zillion hours or being dependent on any single, key employee).
Late in 2012, Michael Bitter and Danette Kohrs were reviewing business valuation tools and they started discussing how systems were critical to reducing chaos, simplifying day-to-day operations, creating predictability, and driving growth – well, sustainable growth.
Almost all business owners tell us they know they need better systems, but they just don’t really know how to go about creating them or making them work.
Michael’s expertise was in systematizing the business functions that manage and sustain growth. Danette specialized in systematizing the business functions that drive exponential growth. They realized that if they could combine this knowledge into a comprehensive program, and make it available to entrepreneurs, it would be a powerful business growth tool.
Together they began to consolidate nearly five decades of entrepreneurship and business operations expertise to develop a comprehensive business growth and improvement system. It’s built on proven growth strategies, profit generating financial principles, and the fundamental operational tools all business owners need to build a business designed to grow quickly, predictably, consistently and profitably.
Time is money, and most entrepreneurs need much more of both! We packaged this growth system into a 15-step business growth blueprint. This step-by-step road-map arms business owners with the knowledge to move beyond their current status-quo and boldly create companies that perform like well-oiled machines. It expedites results and can literally save entrepreneurs a decade – or two – of trying to figure out the tricks that make companies work – and work well.
The Bi2G program is offered to entrepreneurs who don’t particularly want to ‘recreate the wheel’ and figure out, on their own, all the nuances behind highly successful companies. We do it through something we fondly refer to as “Growth Groups”. Each consists of a group of like-minded, growth-oriented business leaders who move through a series of detailed business growth education programs and tap into proven, results-oriented resources and tools. Plus the group provides accountability and peer support to its members -- and those are HUGE factors to success.
The step-by-step growth program teaches company owners how to grow faster, more profitably, and with fewer headaches by implementing our proprietary growth formula into their sales and marketing strategies.
Each of the 15 steps includes an educational video, downloadable tools, skill-building exercises, accountability call and forums, and the opportunity to apply the content immediately through hands-on application exercises.
There are eight business growth functions; four sustain growth and four drive it. The most successful companies have systemized every last detail of every business function. The Bi2G curriculum is designed to improve the systems around operations, sales, marketing, and customer experiences, so customers, revenues, and profits improve.
The Bi2G program taps into existing expertise, and tools, and resources, that will expedite a company’s growth and help them leap-frog a decade – or two – ahead of the curve.
The Bi2G program is offered in 15 learning modules, plus one “Mastery Begins” workshop session. Each module, released on the first of each month over fifteen months, includes videos, downloadable tools, skill-building exercises, accountability calls and forums, and the opportunity to apply the content to your business immediately through a ‘Putting it to Practice’ tool.
(We could also insert images of these items and/or a clipart type icon)
Each month you will have access to a lesson. Each lesson includes a 1-2 hour video on a specific business growth topic.
A downloadable work packet is included with every lesson containing additional notes and information – relative to the growth topic – and a series of exercises you’ll follow to stimulate thinking and work through the concept.
Many lessons also include tools and resources specific to that lesson, things like planning guides, scripts, tracking templates, etc.
This is where concept meets reality. Putting it into Practice simply means implementing what you have learned, on that particular concept, in your business. You’re given detailed exercises and specific tasks to make that happen.
This isn’t a fluff list of “good stuff to read”. These are to-the-point, highly reviewed books, articles, and even vlogs, that are not only directly related the the growth concept being discussed but the mind-shifting take-aways you will get from these resources alone will be worth tens of thousands of dollars.
“A goal without a plan is just a wish.” – Antoine de Saint-Exupery. And, without planning it will be difficult to succeed. It’s so important that we have an entire growth module focused on nothing but planning! Then, after our Bi2G members have completed the program, they enter a Mastery phase, where they focus solely on implementing and refining their growth strategies and continuously improving their companies.
The Bi2g community is filled with like-minded, growth-oriented peers who all share a common goal -- to build an ideal, highly profitable business. The common education provides a common context and process for growth you can now, which now allows you to easily strategize with others learning the same thing, in the same way. People who have a shared knowledge base and a shared experience can communicate, share and support each other much easier. It helps focus the conversation and facilitate learning. It also helps with accountability. You will have access to monthly strategy and accountability calls as well as a private, exclusive Facebook group membership.
Those who participate in our Mastermind Plus program tap into a live, moderated group of like-minded, growth-oriented peers who have also completed the Bi2G program and are actively participating, learning, and implementing the Bi2G strategies, tools, and processes into their own companies. By tapping into this elite Mastermind Alliance, members continue growing and improving their business, leadership, and management skills.

The Bi2G program is broken into three phases:
This 16-month program spends six months in Phase I, nine months in Phase II, and wraps up the final month by launching the Mastery Begins strategic planning workshop. Here we will meet, live, in St. Louis to put noses to the grindstone, tap into the minds of Bi2G peers, and layout a roadmap for how you will drive exponential and profitable growth into the future.

Knowledge & Tools
Each month you will have access to a new lesson. Each lesson includes a 1-2 hour video on a specific business growth topic, a downloadable work packet containing additional notes and information – relative to the topic – and a series of exercises you’ll follow to implement that particular concept in your business. In addition, many lessons also include tools and resources specific to that lesson, things like planning guides, scripts, tracking templates, etc. You can access and go through the material at your own pace – whenever you want.
The entire growth system is comprised of 15, on-line lessons, presented in a very specific order designed to drive exponential, profitable growth. The first six lessons focus on learning how to manage and structure the business so it can sustain growth. The last nine lessons focus on creating your Business Growth Engine and driving business growth.
