I was recently interviewing a potential VP Sales candidate for a client of mine. We were small talking and he mentioned that when he was a boy he ran a lawn mowing service. It started out with just him and grew. He mentioned how foundational that “business” had been to his success (he’d run several businesses in his life). We agreed that the four areas critical to success in building a lawn mowing business are critical to any fast growth business – no matter the size.
No big “a-ha” here – but something worth remembering.
