Richard Mawer


‘This book is a secret weapon, providing clarity and confidence in scaling to seven figures’
Sebastian Bates, The Warrior Academy

The average B2B business takes 5 years to double its revenue; remarkable businesses double revenue every 12 months. In Remarkable Business Growth, Richard Mawer reveals how you can make YOUR B2B business remarkable and unlock predictable 7-figure business growth.

You know you need proven strategy, processes and systems to be successful. What you’re missing is the secret of making your business remarkable at every touchpoint, a business that your customers not only use, but love and remark upon.

From working with hundreds of business owners and building eight businesses of his own, Richard has developed the STEPS Growth method, to give business owners a step-by-step blueprint of processes and principles to put in place the five strategies, processes and systems that a modern business needs to grow predictably towards seven figures and beyond.


A must for any business person, as a guide or as a reminder and refocusing tool. Can’t recommend it highly enough.


Insightful and well-written with plenty of practical takeaways.
