I don't know who first decided that you can grow a
business, but I understand the objection.

In general, things that we grow start out as something
else. You grow plants from seeds, for example, or from
cuttings. Or you grow some things-- like a mustache--
from nothing.

If you used to cut the neighbors' grass in the afternoons
and now you're a professional gardener, you might say
"I grew a business from my after-school work."

But if you already have a business, Techwrl Gardening
Services Inc., and you say that by bringing on more clients
you will grow your business, I think you're using an awkward
new sense of the word-- growing something into a bigger
version of what has long been already. Personally, I think
I started hearing about "growing your business" three or
four years ago.
