Is it possible for a small business to be too successful?
The short answer is: absolutely!
Scaling up a small business isn’t just a matter of getting more customers. If you double your customers overnight, that means you’ll also need to double your output overnight, too. Is your business ready to do that?
If you can’t keep up with your new found demand, you might just be a victim of your own success. The key to avoiding this is to have great cash flow in your business. Having enough cash on hand to take care of expenditures as you grow is vital. If you can’t pay your employees or your suppliers, then growth is not only pointless, it can be detrimental to your business.
