Many business owners have a love-hate relationship with their business. They love being a business owner and most of what goes with it, but there is a part of it that leaves them feeling overwhelmed. It’s that thing that wakes them up at 2AM and is a constant worry in the back of their mind. It could be that they’ve hit a ceiling and can’t move up to the next level, they can’t overcome their issues, or that they are not getting what they want from their business.

Expanding a small business is no easy task because it involves a high level of risk – the business must be able to cost-justify an investment of both human and financial capital. If an entrepreneur isn’t ready to take on that risk, it could spell disaster for small business growth.
Months (or years!) of planning takes entrepreneurs away from running their current business(es) and accessing the necessary small business funding can be a hurdle. What does it take to plan and execute an expansion strategy for a small business? Hard work, dedication and the support of a diverse team of partners.
