Intentional Growth

--- Ryan Tansom ---

Intentional Growth™ is a podcast for entrepreneurs and business owners who want to grow the value of their business, create exit options and maximize their take home dollars WHILE leaving a legacy they are proud of. With over 300,000 downloads and thousands each week, Ryan Tansom’s mission is to bring you all the information he wishes he had before they sold their business. By interviewing entrepreneurs who’ve had 6, 7, 8 and 9 figure exits, top thought leaders and authors (from Forbes, Inc. HBR, EY, EO and EOS to name a few), technical advisors, and many others, you’ll get clarity on your target valuation and best exit option so you can control your journey into a life after business. The goal? Clarity and control. Create a company that kicks out cash, gives you the life you want to live, exit options to sell when you want, for how much you want and to the buyer of your choice so you can leave a legacy.
