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.
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.
