You love being a small business owner and you started your business because you wanted to make a living doing something you love. But there is pressure coming from all around you telling you to “grow and scale” - whether it’s creating passive revenue streams, hiring employees, growing your team, or even building to sell. The message you’re told is that it’s the only way to be successful. But it isn’t.

In this episode of The Sassy Strategist, host Kim Dawson shares her thoughts on finding joy and profitability as a small business owner. Kim also discusses why trying to be a CEO rather than the service provider may actually be hurting your business. Listen in to hear Kim’s personal story of how she realized that staying small was the best fit for her, and her clients. 



You can be financially successful without growing your team or scaling

Focusing on your services rather than being a CEO may be the best fit for you and your clients

Small businesses typically have small budgets - scaling may cause you to lose clients who can no longer afford your services

You can do something that you love and that you're passionate about and make a good living at it
