An Approach Rather Than a One-Size-Fits-All System

The entrepreneurial world is full of “Business Operating Systems” that do some things well but often fall short in other areas. The problem is that they typically offer a one-size-fits-all approach and are more about the system than the user.

The Next Level Growth approach focuses on YOU and on RESULTS, over purity to a prescriptive system. We meet you where you are and help bring the right tools and concepts, at the right times, regardless of the source of those tools or concepts. We do this based on YOUR individual needs, to help YOU and YOUR team excel at each of the Five Obsessions of Elite Organizations, to ensure you reach the summit of the mountain YOU are climbing.

For Entrepreneurs, By Entrepreneurs

At Next Level Growth, we believe that Experience Matters. It starts with the experience of our Guides. Many systems will let just about anybody become a coach or implementer. More than Coaches or Implementers, we are seasoned Business Guides. At Next Level Growth, all of our Guides have been owners or C-Suite executives in businesses with at least $10 million in revenue, 50 or more employees and all of us have used a majority of the tools and concepts we teach in those businesses. We’ve lived what we teach, and we’ve been on the journey ourselves.

We also obsess about YOU having a great experience on the climb and enjoying the journey, all while building an elite organization that gets results.

The “WHY” behind Next Level Growth

RISE isn’t your typical book about succeeding in business. Instead, it’s proof that failure doesn’t equal defeat. Michael’s inspiring journey can help you avoid the mistakes he made by laying out a simple and holistic system of discipline, accountability, and balance. Part refreshingly honest memoir and part guide for entrepreneurs, RISE shows you how to get out of your own way and live your ideal life.

“I’ve met countless entrepreneurs over the course of my two-plus decades in business, but few have stories as dramatic—and, in the end, as inspirational—as Michael Erath’s.”

– From the Forward by Cameron Herold, Founder of the COO Alliance, and author of Meetings Suck and Double Double

“Michael is one of our best EOS Implementers. What makes him great is that he has lived everything he teaches. His story is a great one and he is a true class act.”

– Gino Wickman, Author of Traction® and Creator of EOS®
