Ep 25 – The Three Most Important Skills You NEED To Scale
If you’re like most successful business owners, you’ve probably gotten to a place where it felt like you’ve got it all worked out. The business is growing, new clients or orders are streaming in, and there’s more than enough to keep you busy. And because you’re smart, you don’t get too carried away by the success. Instead, you start thinking about scaling your business. But there’s a problem; you don’t know where to start.
First, you need to understand that, although used interchangeably, there’s a big difference between growing and scaling a business. Growth occurs when a company invests new resources into the business, and its revenue increases as a result.
