We are innovators, inventors and entrepreneurs. But we are also realists. We understand the power of growth, and the nearly insatiable quest for it in today’s business world. As any good business leader knows, however, growth does not last forever in any one direction. But growth can and does shoot off in unexpected ways. And that bud of new growth is exactly where you want to be.
