Cool Things Entrepreneurs Do

James Ashcroft believes that if you’re not growing, then you’re dying.

Conscious growth is a common thread in all facets of his life.

It all started in 2012, when he rolled off the couch as a fat, 38 year old guy and went running.

4 months later, and 40 pounds less, he crossed the Ironman Miami 70.3 triathlon finish line, shocking not only himself but everyone in his life.

Over the past 5 years he’s completed a full Ironman and 4 of the 6 Major Marathons.

He’s also owner of a fire security business in south Florida.

He bought the company 4 years ago, and has grown the business, both organically and through acquisitions, from 17 employees to over 70, and maintains profitable revenue.

He was the 2016 Chair of Entrepreneurs’ Organization’s South Florida Accelerator program where he helped 40+ companies scale over $1mm in revenue.

In 2017, he launched the Growing Not Dying Facebook group that helps motivated entrepreneurs build successful businesses and be held accountable to do the work they said they’d do.

He’s happily married with 3 kids, and lives in Austin, Texas.
