Well, today we’re going to talk about 3 simple ways to scale your business. Hopefully, these tricks will help put your mind at ease and not end up being a bandage on a shotgun wound.
There comes a time where you can’t handle more work. There is just too much going on and you can’t successfully attend to every person’s need. Nothing wrong with that. I’m going to say that a few times in this article — NOTHING WRONG WITH THAT.
When you get to a point where you can’t take on any more clients, don’t. If you’re worried about missing out on revenue you have two choices. The first expand your team. Hire more people to help with the work. The second, raise your prices.
Often the problem with owning a company is the burden of doing too much all the time and thinking that’s okay. I guess now is the time to say something is wrong with that. You don’t need to do everything 24/7. Outsource, rely on your team, stop doing work for free.

Are you telling me every part of your job needs your hands in it? I doubt it. There has to be some areas you can automate. Things like email automation, social media, editorial calendars.

One common objection I hear to automation is the fear of cost. It costs money to setup an email marketing campaign. Yes, it does. You need to be honest with yourself. How much is it costing you and your brand to not have these tools in place? If you could push these tasks off your time would open up to do more important things that in theory would make you more money.
