Is Scaling Your Business Really Worth It?

On today’s show: is scaling your business really worth it? 

It’s a question that makes you think. I mean, if you’re making pretty good money working as a solopreneur, what are the advantages to growing your business?

And do those advantages outweigh the headache and stress of hiring, training, and paying people on your team?

It’s a question we’ve never tackled before, but our guest Sarah poses toward the end of the episode.

Also on this call:

  • How to narrow down your many business interests
  • How to build a business that’s flexible enough for you to take months off at a time
  • How to delegate when you’re a control freak, and lots more


This was genuinely one of my favorite episodes of all time. Stay tuned and enjoy!
