Recently, our Director of Marketing, Christina Kugel, responded to an inquiry from a journalist from YFS Magazine on my behalf. (Thanks Chrissy!) The journalist was asking about how not to get overwhelmed by fast business growth. Below was my response.
“Preparation and organization are absolutely the most essential steps to prevent one’s self from becoming overwhelmed. As my company expanded I did my best to anticipate what our new needs would be and took the necessary steps to be ready for them before they hit. Sometimes, I had to bring on new people but mostly preparedness and organization called for a restructuring of our internal hierarchy in order to distribute responsibility. Initially, everyone answered to me. Expanding meant creating new management responsibilities for my employees, alleviating some of my pressure and allowing us to be more efficient.” See the article live by clicking here.
