What holds back a business from Scaling UP

What prevents most businesses from scaling up? Here are a few things:

A personal service business where the owner IS the business.
A business which is only successful because it has a unique location
A business which has a limited supply of product.
A business which can’t overcome the logistics of multiple locations/ increased sales either because there aren’t enough qualified humans or the business processes can’t or shouldn’t be automated.
A niche business which serves a limited niche.
Inadequate, ill-defined, or unworkable business systems, especially marketing, sales and customer service.
Inadequate vision – owners can’t imagine scaling or comprehend what that involves.
Inadequate funding
Owners who know that being “big” doesn’t mean being better, and in fact being the “right size” is the best success a business owner can achieve.
