One hears much more often these days than in years past "Grow your business!" (or sales or income, etc.)

Even though it is apparently an appropriate usage (I can grow my own vegetables, I suppose I can grow my own business), this greatly offends my ear, and as noted, currently this is a popular usage.

The only times something like this bothers me (theres also spelling + the way people talk) is when it is done on purpose. In my province people love to speak and write French badly and these people are proud of it, they think it is real French.
