Scaling your Business

Hugh MacLeod“Scaling your business is all about having more people solve more problems for you.”  ~Hugh MacLeod, author of “Six Ways to get People to Solve Problems”

More context from “Six Ways to get People to Solve Problems

Scaling your business is all about having more people solve more problems for you.

Small enterprises can get lost in an awkward teenager phase where they expand a little too fast for comfort. Growing pains aren’t pleasant, but are reduced when employees are given the autonomy to fix problems themselves.

Your main job as a leader is to make sure everyone has what they needs. That they work together well. That collaboration is rewarded naturally in your day to day ops. That feedback loops keep everything running smoothly. And that the folks only out for themselves don’t muck up the works and hold everyone back.

The more everyone works together, the easier it is to keep on growing (up).
Hugh MacLeod
