MBA1256 Should You Do Things That Don’t Scale?

Is everything scaleable? Are the things that aren’t scaleable worth your time, even as your business grows?

No, and yes.

Today, we discuss the things you should always do the old-fashioned way: personally, without automation, and without delegation. Some things just aren’t meant for the factory line, and the time you invest in them will pay dividends that are way beyond worth it.

Learn what these hands-on-only responsibilities are, and how to conduct them in an unscaled way. Most of them have to do with relationships — with customers, with your team, with industry colleagues. Relationships, of course, are best when they’re personal, not systematized.

See what we mean, and see how to keep the right things small-scale. Click Play!
