7 Stage Growth Cycle


Carl Gould-

Founder of 7 Stage Growth  Academy (7GA) Program 

Talk about grass roots….I know how to build a company from the ground up. My first business launched when I was still a teenager. After suffering a leg injury in my sophomore year in college, I launched a landscaping company.

After selling that business I then started a construction and real estate investment business. I was on my own, trying to figure it out. I became a sponge for information and wisdom. I enrolled in county college, attended personal development seminars, studied NLP, Situational Leadership(TM), Organizational Life-cycles, got certified as a professional bartender (I can still flip the bottles..:), worked the overnight shift at UPS loading trucks (did you do the math?

That’s right, I worked at UPS from Midnight -0800, then went straight to my landscaping business.) That’s what it takes to build something from nothing. In other words…..I hustled my a** off to achieve what I have today.

I have trained over 7,000 coaches in 35 countries, advised many of the fastest-growing companies, won Entrepreneur of the Year, co-authored Blueprint for Success with two of my idols, Ken Blanchard and Stephen R. Covey, spoke at Tony Robbins’ Unleash the Power Within seminars for 3 years, wrote 9 books, and ran 2 NYC marathons twice. 


An aligned rowing team in a boat coaching success


Alignment is a dynamic process, a journey and NOT a destination.
A circle of business growth


Growth isn’t always about getting bigger, or working harder, it is also about becoming leaner, more efficient, more effective, nimbler and smarter.
A boat turning all the way around like a business can


Any organization can turn around, stage a comeback, and reverse its fortunes in an instant.
