On this episode of ScaleUp Radio, I’ve gone back into the archives to look again at one of the great guests that we had.
The respected author, speaker and expert on the subject of scaling up Jan Cavelle appeared on ScaleUp Radio.
She is someone who definitely speaks from a place of experience, having run and scaled up a furniture business which started as purely a sales business - but ended up with 2 factories and 40 employees.
The conversation is, without doubt, the most value-filled one that we’ve ever done on ScaleUp Radio. If you’re someone who is looking to scale up your business, there is so much in this episode for you.
Amongst the subjects we cover are:
- The importance of focus to the scaling up of your business. You need to be committed to it.
- What is the difference between growth and scaling up? Aren’t they just two sides of the same coin?
- The benefit of putting a system for scaling up in place - and understanding that a system is only a part of the solution.
- The power of the phrase ‘Hire Slow, Fire Fast’ and how that can fit into the culture of your business
These are really just the brief highlights. There is so much covered in this episode, and it was great to have someone like Jan sharing her expertise and knowledge.
Of course, Jan isn’t the only one to write about the process of scaling up your business….
