Scaling Your Business: Developing Your Business Service Offering
Updated: May 14, 2020
The entrepreneurial spirit! It may have engulfed you when you first started to describe your business intentions with a few scribbled words on a cocktail napkin.
Or, maybe you became immersed in it while writing a daily journal entry.
The spirit became your business driver, the way to grow your start-up into the blossoming small business model it is today.
Eventually, the when and how you and the entrepreneurial spirit became ‘one’ seems to have lost its relevance just a bit.
'Scaling Up’ = Start-up 2.0
The same zest required for your start-up is even more relied upon as you are planning to scale your business.
There are going to be a plethora of questions and concerns at the initial stages. Just as a shark’s continual movement is critical to its survival, so it is for a start-up to leap scaling.
Your leading the scalability process is no different from a military general devising a solid battle plan.
It’s a simple comparison as the moves made by entrepreneurs and leaders of corporate giants alike have parallels to the operational procedures of the military leaders from the beginnings of the civilized world.
Scholars and leaders are quick to encompass Sun Tzu’s Art of War throughout the business community.
“Victorious warriors win first and then go to war, while defeated warriors go to war first and then seek to win” – Sun Tzu
