Act Small Think Big

Growth presents a real challenge for many small businesses. As your organization grows, how do you avoid compromising the personality and characteristics that helped build your business in the first place?

Act Small, Think Big – In his manifesto for small business in the new economy, Seth Godin has redefined small and big: “Small” is a mindset, a way of acting, as opposed to a physical state – Small is not the the size of your bank account, your asset base or the number of employees you have, etc.; Thinking “Big” is thinking smart. Big ideas don’t have to equate to big budgets and expenses – Big ideas are new ideas.

The secret to managing the growth of your small business lies in understanding/balancing thinking big and acting small.
