    Great article that really gets back to the basics for entrepreneurs and start-ups. Too often organizations find themselves in a rapid growth cycle and neglect the critical aspect of allowing the organization, its people and processes to keep up to pace. This often creates employee and customer issues that can turn a growth cycle into a sharp nosedive!

    I love this article. I think it offers pragmatic advice to small business owners. My particular favorite is #1: Don’t Grow Yourself Into Trouble. There’s a difference between growing responsibly and growing for growth’s sake. Bigger is not better for every business and it’s up to each small business owner to decide when and how they plan to grow before doing so. A comprehensive business plan is critical and so is well-managed cash flow. One great resource for small business owners who want to grow AND maintain a healthy cash flow? Invoice financing. Business owners get instant cash for unpaid invoices. It’s simple and flexible.
