    Staying Small While Driving Big Success

    Staying Small While Driving Big Success

    Seeing your small business grow can be exciting, but staying on top of that growth can be difficult for a solopreneur or a small team. As demand increases, how do you keep dollars coming in and products and services going out without breaking your original business model? Unchecked expansion can lead to painful downsizing after the initial rush - which no entrepreneur wants to have to deal with. Hosts Jannese and Austin will be discussing effective small business scaling: growing your company steadily and sustainably. Daniel and Michael Jay of the LazyButtClub Clothing Company talk about their experience with doing just that. They run a small family-owned apparel line with a global audience on TikTok. They’ll tell us how they keep their lifestyle business going strong while maintaining a small team even as they service customers all over the world.

    You have finally got your business in order and everything is running smoothly, so naturally you want to grow it. However, that may not be as simple as it sounds.

What?

I saw this podcast on a list of top 20 podcasts and yet there is only one episode? And 58 reviews? How much of a scam are these podcast lists?

Disgusting. I will stick with my favorite podcast "Community News by Paul and Sasha." At least their show makes me laugh and they joke about all kinds of ridiculous business ideas.
