How do you know when your business is at a turning point?

Congratulations! Your business is booming. You're juggling happy clients, a packed schedule, and the exhilarating feeling of success. But wait – are you also feeling a tinge of overwhelm?

That feeling of working harder than you ever did in your 9-5. Questioning if your business success or your time freedom is more important to you means you are on your way of getting out of the messy middle. 

Here's the truth: these growing pains are a sign you're at a crucial tipping point. It's time to scale your business and take it to the next level. But how do you transition from a solopreneur who has been covering roles as a fractional product manager to a practice leader, without sacrificing the magic that got you here?

The Brave Start's Guide to Scaling with Soul

At The Brave Start, we believe growth shouldn't come at the expense of your well-being or your commitment to exceptional service. Here's how to strategically scale while staying true to your values:

  • Empower, Don't Drown:  You can't do it all. It's time to delegate.

But how do you ensure your clients still receive the exceptional service they expect? 

Tap into Your Network: Leverage your existing connections! Look for trusted individuals who share your work ethic and commitment to quality. They can support you and your clients through providing services, freeing up your time to focus on strategic growth. Plus - you are helping grow their business. It's a win - win! 

  • Shift Your Networking Focus:  Networking used to be about finding new clients. Now, it's about  building your dream team

Seek out subject matter experts who can complement your skills and elevate your offerings. 

  • Look at Your Business Differently: You are no longer an independent coach + consultant, you are running a firm.  Scaling beyond your original offerings or structure is a good "problem" to have.

It means that your services are making an impact, and now you have a chance to serve more clients with a larger team. 

Remember, you don't have to scale alone. By empowering your network and building a team of talented collaborators, you can scale with soul, ensuring both your business and your well-being flourish in the exciting journey ahead.

The first 6-figures and the first hire are going to feel the hardest. But once you get past the firsts, you are well on your way to being able to build a business you are ridiculously proud of with people you enjoy working with. Enabling your talents to reach more clients who need you.
