    Scaling is hard but selling is harder
    • You are seeing challenges scaling the people, tech, and processes.
    • You see the problem and wonder why no one else is stepping up and taking the problem head on. Why are we stuck in the old way, why are we still talking about the past when the future is so clear.
    • If you are seeing that, you have done a good job of identifying the issues, and now rather than scaling you need to do the selling.
    • Next step is, selling your brand, your ideas, and concepts and making them theirs. You need to get out of the way and coach them from the sidelines, be their cheerleader their coach but not the problem solver.
