WHO ARE YOU?
You were born entrepreneurial. Think back to that lemonade stand, paper route, dog walking business. You've certainly come a long way!
You think BIG, you act quickly and you want to maximise the impact you and your business can make in this world.
You run a service business, probably in the B2B space and you have seen the tremendous success of the big corporates first hand. And, while you don't want to be in THAT space, you do want to expand and grow and amplify and see where this takes you.
You've probably had your business running profitably for a few years and you've been doing all (or at least most) of the things yourself.
You've been CEO, CMO, CTO, CFO and that sh*t's gotta stop. You want to concentrate on Leadership!
YOU'RE READY TO GROW!
You're ready for your next phase of growth. And, you realise that it's going to require trust and delegation and tapping into the proven expertise of others. You're ready to invest in planning, process, technology, to apply rigour and embrace well honed strategy because you know how important they all are in driving success.
You're looking for expertise to help you to craft the plan to get from here to there and to provide support and nurturing as you grow.
If this sounds like you, you're ready for The Growth Garden experience so please reach out and say hello.

The "I'm still blushing" files...
"When it came time for me to grow my solopreneur coaching business into a a full blown consultancy, I knew that she was THE ONE PERSON I really needed on my team to help me bring my vision to life."
A few words from a formidable founder and legend of a lady, Nicole D'Andrea of Spark Strategies and Blackbird Yoga Studio. She shares her thoughts on the branding work experience she's had with me and The Growth Garden... Over to her for more....Nicole D'Andrea, Founder Spark Strategies and Blackbird Yoga Studios
"Linda is an incredibly talented brand strategist - I’ve not ever seen anyone who is able to pull together a brand and story for a client — often when they don’t even know it themselves!
She’s a ‘JIll of all trades’ - she can jump in and help out when people need a hand - a real team player.
Often with branding it’s an emotional experience… bringing their baby into the world. Linda does this with ease and empathy.
A great people leader - enthusiastic and positive and brings out the best in the team."Sheridan James, Marketing Executive, Koh Living (Previously, Growth Director,at The Lightning Rod Agency)
"Linda is indeed a blessing to have on your team. I needed the support of an experienced professional, who thinks strategically, brainstorms like Einstein, and can help me iterate and refine my vision and then break it down into executable steps, steps that are time, priority defined and on budget!
I work with individuals and businesses, and Linda’s extensive corporate background enables her corporate insight to be repurposed and interpreted for a smaller but equally ambitious audience, which is a game-changer.
Linda’s great Strategic Thinking strengths are the ones that keep us all focused on what could be. Linda is constantly absorbing and analysing information and helping me and my growing team make better decisions."Vanessa Auditore, CEO Success HQ Pty Ltd
"Linda helped transform our company and get us back on the track to success. Linda worked with me to define our marketing position and produce the material needed to attract sales. With her help we launched a new web site, write letters, case studies, brochures, and much more. Thanks to Linda, everyone at Univex is now much more confident about the future and we are starting to see results in the way of an increase in new customers!"Paul D. Filmer - Managing Director, The Univex Group
"Linda has been an invaluable resource for EdTechTeam Press’ recent launch and branding. As an author herself, she really understands our needs as a publishing company. She was instrumental in helping us develop our strategic direction, and she partnered our goals with the perfect marketing tools and techniques, something we could not have done on our own. We are so happy with her strategic guidance that we also have her consult with individual authors, and during those meetings I can almost see the light bulbs go off in their heads as she gives them targeted ideas to help them grow their own brands."Holly Clark - Head of Publishing, EdTechTeam
"Linda brings a level of deep curiosity. She asks really powerful questions! Her ability to articulate the story and narrative of your brand is outstanding. Linda’s gift is to create a copy and brand message and narrative that cuts through and gains attention."Kymberlie Dimozantos. Founder, The Lightning Rod Agency
"Thanks to the amazing Linda Johannesson from Growth Garden for helping us lift our website messaging, design, SEO and marketing to a new level, to grow, grow, GROW!!
So great working with you, Linda. 😊 So much gold in your recommendations!"Bridget + Alan, Throwyourlegover.com.au
