AWKWARD ADOLESCENCE: SOLUTIONS FOR YOUR JUST-BIGGER-THAN-SMALL BUSINESS

Under $1M, businesses can get away with murder. Nothing's written down, money gets wasted, systems are sloppy, employees are freewheeling...and yet somehow you're still making some money. This is the start-up culture that everyone says that they love. Above $10M, however, everything looks different. Systems and processes must be in place to survive. Quality must be consistent. Departments must operate without constant supervision. Scott talks about getting from here to there - the process of professionalization. The systems, habits, and priorities that can push a business through its awkward adolescence.
