Picture this. You’re traveling down the road at 90 mph. Music is blaring. Kids are hanging out the window. And, the scenery? Frankly, it’s all a blur.
There are some potholes in the road, the engine’s knocking, and you notice that Bobbie is missing – all clear indicators that this trip is headed for trouble. You’re moving so quickly there’s little time to make sure you’re headed in the right direction…let alone determine where you’re at along the continuum of business growth.
Each business travels through four stages of growth and development on its way to maturity. Common characteristics, growing pains and a primary focus define each one of those stages.
Do you know what stage defines your business? It’s not uncommon to misidentify the stage. Don’t make the same mistake as some entrepreneurs who base their business stage on years in the industry rather than revenue.
Is your daily business activity consistent with the primary focus of your stage of growth? In this fast-moving information age, it’s easy to get distracted by other activities outside the primary focus.
Rev up your business growth by identifying your business’ stage of growth and aligning your daily activity with the correct focus. It’s a trip worth taking!
