Grow up and stop throwing your toys around

A business is a beautiful laboratory for understanding growth. Especially for the entrepreneur. Because when you’re the sole employee of the company, your identity is the company. The enterprise is only as mature as you are. 

And so, as you grow from boy to man, from newbie to veteran, from a kid having a good time to an adult with real responsibilities, you start to revise your long held vision for what your business could and should be. Because you realize, this isn’t a passion project or an expensive hobby or a basement adventure anymore. This is your career. This is your livelihood. 

The question is, now that you’ve earned a sizable chunk of experience and patience and reputation and perspective, how will your business evolve accordingly? What will be the next incarnation of your enterprise, as a natural extension of the person you’re becoming? 

Perhaps experiencing a traumatic life event will challenge you to outgrow your origins and change your brand direction proudly. Perhaps getting married will challenge you to double your fees to decrease labor intensity so you can spend more time with your partner. Perhaps taking on more breadwinning responsibilities will challenge you diversify your income streams and build a more sustainable business model. Perhaps becoming more involved in your local community will challenge you to create a charitable component to your service offerings. 

The point is, every company starts out as a one thing and evolves into another, just like every person starts out as one animal and evolves into another. 

Evolution isn’t an option, it’s an inevitability. It’s the cost of doing business.
