Bill founded EcSell to provide strategies for continual improvement and share his success in how growth is created and sustained in our personal and professional lives. In twenty-five minutes, Bill Eckstrom will capture your heart and stimulate your mind. His message about the importance of discomfort has captivated audiences around the world and has helped thousands of people think differently about their unique personal transformation.

    Bill’s viral TEDx Talk, “Why Comfort Will Ruin Your Life,” first introduced the Growth Rings model and the impact they have on the evolution or decay of everything in our world. The Growth Rings illustrate how dangerous it can be to remain in a state of comfort, and how being in a state of discomfort is the only way to sustain growth.

    • Strategies for triggering healthy discomfort to advance our businesses and careers
