How to Expand a Business
The Business is Running You
So, do you know how to expand a business? Some businesses are lucky enough to experience growth and expansion year after year. Fast growth can create its own set of challenges. These businesses can find themselves constantly trying to play catch-up. The key concern for these businesses is burnout.
We want to introduce you to Eli. Because he had been growing quickly, he was having a hard time keeping pace. He was burning the candle at both ends. While not a bad problem to have, it’s wasn’t sustainable. He needed help.
“The business is going great, but I wish my life was. I find that I’m spending so much time working that I don’t have time for everything else. It’s not as fun as it used to be. I’m resent being so tied to the business, and I’m wondering if I should do something else. But my family needs the income so I can’t. I really feel stuck”
Seaside Chiropractic Clinic was growing rapidly. After several successful years in their new location, they found themselves at capacity. Dr. Ocean had seen this coming, but he was just too busy to take time away until the issue became obvious.
This is probably the most common problem we see. It easy to get overwhelmed with all the ‘business stuff’ because most professionals aren’t educated in business management. That means it’s easy to get caught off guard by everything that needs to be done to run a company well.
