Don’t be small because you can’t figure out how to get big. Consider being small because it might be better. – Seth Godin
It is always on the radar: small vs. big….big is not always better…. a big fish in a little pond/little fish in a big pond.
Through the years, I have seen good businesses get overly ambitious….expanding to multitude locations. For some if management/leadership is astute, it works. For others that overextend themselves in capital and people, it eventually leads to demise.
Our thinking (like Seth Godins) was always to get better….growing carefully….getting the right people onboard.
Even more so….getting the right people with a vested interest in the business was our most important strategy for being better (and bigger).
