Why Focusing Solely on Revenue May Be Killing Your Company
Business owners understand the importance of revenue and sales in growing their business. It’s fun to watch your business thrive. What about your company’s infrastructure?
The “hey, we’re growing, so we’ll focus on that boring operational stuff later”. It can be put off for only so long before you’re forced to face it.
It usually happens in the form of an expensive, disruptive “oh sh*t” moment. It could be:
- Scaling up to deliver on a new contract
- Needing money to expand or make payroll
- Being sued by a former employee or customer
- Getting a letter from a government agency, etc.
It doesn’t have to be bad news, but it usually is unexpected.
In this talk, Diana makes the often-tedious topic of business operations accessible and fun. Her in-the-trenches expertise will help you understand the infrastructure; essentials that will keep you in business for the long haul.
Planning for the “What if”™: Move Faster, Hire Better, Grow Smarter
From simple challenges that come with growth to heart-stopping crises, the “what ifs” are endless. What if…
- You win a big contract or lose a big customer?
- You expand to another state and/or hire employees?
- Your employees want to work remotely?
- You’re sued by a current or former employee or customer?
- You have a medical crisis?
In this talk, Diana shares her in-the-trenches operational expertise to mitigate the potential impacts of the “what ifs” that come with running a business.
