[TSE 130] How to Scale and Grow Your Business with David Finkel

Posted on / by Natalie Sisson / in Podcast / 26 comments

130 - David F QuoteWhen I think back over my first year of business, it was full of hustle. I was writing posts, creating digital products, growing my social profiles, networking and every other possible task. To say it was exhausting would be an understatement.

Yes, I loved what I was doing, but it didn’t feel very scaleable at the time.

What I’ve noticed over the years is that many of us entrepreneurs aren’t quite sure how to build a business that you can scale and grow at the same time. Today’s podcast guest David Finkel found himself trapped in this very position with his first business.

After growing his business to a couple hundred thousand dollars per year, David felt like it’s ability to grow was plateaued because the business relied heavily on him working 7 days a week. Learning from this experience, he started from scratch with the sole purpose of building a business that was easy to scale so he cold take back his time to have more adventure in life and freedom in business.

ScaleIn fact, he learned so much that he even wrote a book called Scale about it with his partner Jeff Hoffman; the man who created Priceline.com.
