Thank you to Evan Hackel and the Training Unleashed podcast for the recent episode!
As Evan mentions during our conversation, challenges to a business can come in many forms. In fact, many businesses fail due to growing too fast or faced with landing that “whale” of a project, yet not being strong enough in their foundation to be able to properly accommodate the growth.
Look at the parable of the wise man and the foolish man who both build a house (i.e. their business), but one builds his house on the rock and the other builds his house on the sand. Of course the storms come and the house built on the sand collapses as the foundation underneath was not strong.
From a business perspective, storms will come … a global pandemic, a key employee leaving, a key client leaving … or simply a huge change in growth overnight. It all comes down to the foundation of your business and is it strong enough to withstand the storms that inevitably come?
The key here is that the wise man did not wait until the storm came to try and shore up his foundation. He planned ahead and built a strong foundation under his house in anticipation of the storm. If you are in the midst of the storm or simply would like to get ahead of it and solidify the foundation of your business, we would love to show you what is possible.
If this resonates, we would love to hear your story! We put together the “Building to Scale” podcast and community just for this purpose – to help out fellow entrepreneurs along this journey. Join the community or let us know if you would like to be a guest on the podcast!
