Everybody knows what it means to grow like a weed.

But how do they do it? And how can we put their system to work in our businesses?

Welcome to Weed Strategy™. Weed dominate by leveraging a fierce mindset and cultivated unfair advantages against collective scale. They do it according to a dynamic process honed over millions of years, yet able to adapt quickly to any disruption, and programmed directly into their DNA. And all of it can be applied to growing any enterprise.

Weed Mindset

WEED MINDSET

Weeds don’t have brains, so it’s odd to think of them having a mindset. But just watch them operate. They’re fierce and aggressive, adaptive and resilient. They even act as though they’re optimistic. When they suffer a setback, they immediately start rebuilding. They never give up.

UNFAIR ADVANTAGES

Weeds never do anything without an unfair advantage. But they’re not unearned. Through their evolution, weeds have devised ingenious strategies, attributes and tools to out-compete rivals. Their seeds spread further, they work harder and grow faster. They always win.

Weed Consulting Scale

COLLECTIVE SCALE

Weeds understand their power is in numbers. A single dandelion is no big deal. But they never show up alone. We’re taught to be self-reliant, which stunts our ability to scale anything. The weeds are telling us we must root out all forms of 1:1 leverage to scale like a weed.

Fierce Process
