Grow your own way

Small business owners share secrets for smart and sustainable expansion

Sales are up. Customers are satisfied. You’ve assembled the right team, and you are successfully navigating the many challenges small business owners face. Your market is strong, and you sense there is more to be had. It’s the moment you’ve been waiting for. 

It’s the perfect time for a quick expansion, right? Maybe. But maybe not. While a growing company is often considered a successful company, expanding too quickly can turn a profitable business into a bankrupt business. As history has proven, rapid growth can be as dangerous as not growing at all. 

This Q2 issue of LOCAL Biz focuses on scaling your business in a smart and sustainable way. 

Successful local owners and experts share their best practices and offer solutions for overcoming common growing pains. You’ll read inspirational stories, learn innovative techniques and find valuable resources for growth through content that is delivered in a style that is easy to read, informative and actionable. 

We hope it leaves you feeling smarter and more empowered to lead your business to unprecedented success as we close the books on winter and spring into the quarter ahead. May your business blossom for years to come.
