EP32: The Truth About Scaling: Why Bigger Isn’t Always Better

To scale or not to scale? Not gonna lie — too many people confuse scaling with growth and vice versa.

Brace yourselves as we break down the reality that only a minority — a mere 22% of small businesses launched in the past decade — have succeeded in doing: scaling.

In this week’s episode we take a look at how scaling a business differs from growing a business and what it actually requires planning for as a CEO/Founder.

Then, we flip the script…

As a solopreneur, have you pondered the perks of running a sustainable business as opposed to scaling up? We give solopreneurs a little love by sharing the things that make being a solo entrepreneur the absolute bees knees.

Regardless of what path you decide is for you, this episode gives you a dose of loving reality about the ins and outs of business, both big and small.


To just saygrowth’ is to really ignore the reality of what scaling sustainably takes, because — fun fact — you can grow your business and not scale.

I’m not joking when I say that I’ve seen people put more thought into their holiday planning than they do into their business growth planning.”
