About 321.

At 321, we’re entrepreneurs helping entrepreneurs.

All those marketing and sales challenges you’re facing? We’ve stared them down. We’re like you—entrepreneurs who’ve been in the trenches of startups, scaleups and big brands. So, we’ll tell it to you straight. And then we’ll get your marketing and sales straight too—so you can win.

Our story.

Building a business—it ain’t for the faint of heart.

There’s a lot of romance in the idea of building a business. And then you actually start to do it and it’s oh-my-god-what-have-I-gotten-myself-into? But entrepreneurship—founding and scaling a company? It gets into your blood. You can’t go back.

For the team at 321—we’ve worked in big established places, but along the way we found we were truly passionate about building something, often from nothing. And helping companies like yours do the same.

Success has a thousand mothers and failure is an orphan.

We’ve all heard a version of this line. But it’s not entirely accurate. The truth is that success is the result of a thousand failures. Over decades of combined marketing and sales experience, we’ve made all the mistakes that people don’t like to talk about.

But we also learned every step along the way. Our many successes (and we’re happy to share them) came from being able to turn those learnings into durable systems, reliable processes, and the best practices you can count on to deliver results that will show up on your balance sheet.

Hi. We’re 321 Growth Academy. We can help you win.

We’re Chantel Elliott and Sarah Morrill. We’re the partners here at 321 Growth Academy. You can learn more about us in our bios below. But the point we really want to make here is this: we say we’re like you because we are. We’ve sat in the office wondering how to make payroll, but we’ve also sat back and toasted the closing of a huge deal. We’ve won in marketing. And we’ve won in sales. Let’s talk about how we can help you do the same.
