THE CHALLENGE OF ONE
Scaling a business can be challenging for the one-person, professional service provider.
How, when services are generally delivered and paid for on an hourly basis, can a skilled professional increase his or her revenues without also correspondingly increasing their work hours?
How can a professional’s expertise work independently for him or her, while they’re busy with another project or on vacation?
Peg Richmond, Sr. Business Advisor with the Texas State Small Business Development Center, leads a discussion about what it means to scale your business and how to get started.
