You heard this advice over and over. Work on your business, not just in your business.
You realize it’s important to keep an eye on the details. After all, the finer details can give your business marketplace distinction.
However, if you don’t focus on key activities that move your business forward in a strategic way, you will stall your big ideas. What’s more, is that any lack of clarity, overwhelm, not having an effective team, and missing business management systems can stall implementation of your ideas for months or years.
Before scaling your business, what is most important is to make sure you have a solid foundation in place. This foundation includes clarity around your ideal client, having solid products and service offerings, effective business processes and systems, and hiring a productive team. Then, and only then, scale your business.
Too many entrepreneurs believe that they can scale their business and need just “one more system” or “additional training”. In fact, they don’t have a solid foundation in place.
Think of scaling your business this way: You would never build a skyscraper on a bed of sand, right? Then, why would you want to scale your business on one?
Build the basic foundation before scaling your business.
