I've been changing my mind completely regarding what scaling a business means. I used to think it means decoupling your time and efforts. Instead of selling 1-1, sell 1-N. Instead of increasing traffic by writing blog posts one by one, find a way to auto generate blog posts. But I think that frame of mind is dangerous. It reminds me of overengineering tech. You know - building a website that can handle 1,000,000 concurrent users while you only just started. Just build something that works for now. If you have scaling issues, then address them. Same with scaling a business in general. I believe all you have to do is scale revenue. Scaling a business is taking it to the next step. If you are at $100 per month, it's taking it to $1k per month. And from $1k to $5k. And so on and so forth. In whatever way you can. Even if it's "uNscAlabLe". Why do we try to overcomplicate and overoptimize everything?
