Accelerate Your Small Business Growth with a Scalable Business Map
Let’s face it. Starting a business is one of the most rewarding experiences you’ll ever have. On the surface, starting a business sounds like a no-brainer. If you’re exceptional at what you do, you want to offer it to the world without the middle man. Then, reality sets in. After you quit your day job, find a group of core clients, and get to work you realize something. You aren’t sure how to manage the daily operations or big picture strategy to scale your business and grow.
Entrepreneursface unique barriers of business success. Most new businesses are not started by entrepreneurs who set out to build a strong business but by technicians who enjoy the hands-on work themselves. Because of that natural bias, most business owners focus on working in their business when really, they should be working on their business.
How to Build a Scalable Business

Instead of looking at your business as a one-off operation, consider the business to be a prototype for a large number of franchises that will be added at a later stage. By adopting that mindset, you will not only participate in the business as a technician but will also act as a manager (putting systems in place and controls) and as an entrepreneur (having a vision of how the business can create sustainable added-value for all key stakeholders). A business that is built and managed by someone who combines the approach of the technician, the manager and the entrepreneur will have a far greater chance of future success than one guided by someone thinking like a technician alone.
