I am chatting about this important insight to a friend right now.
Lots of little businesses want to be bigger businesses. But many aren’t ready because they’re not very good little businesses. The bad bits of who and what they are when they are little, stay bad when they’re big. Because unfortunately, Shit Scales.
This insight is important. Because lots of frustrated little businesses would become much better bigger businesses if they sorted their small business out first. And that’s why my friend is exploring building his own business around precisely this insight.
He’s exploring helping smaller businesses not to just blindly chase growth, as so many business and the consultants that advise them do. He is pondering how best to focus on building a really Great smaller business – first.
Because whilst the bad news is that Shit Scales. The good news is that Great scales too.
