Example text

We sold it into one of the major African markets, while a smaller company offered the same operator a much more basic SMS-based content service that we could have supplied but did not as I thought it was too basic and far removed from my vision. In the first year of trading, the other company did several million dollars worth of business with this operator but we did very little. In hindsight, we should have covered the basic service as well as the advanced visionary services; it would have been much more profitable and ultimately more successful for achieving the vision of our business.

It’s a fair question. Yes, there are plenty of risks associated with accelerating the growth of your business but, in my opinion, these risks can be managed, just like all the other risks that you have managed to date. The key is to be smart about how you accelerate the growth. Don’t bet the farm on it, as they say. Often the perceived risks of growing are based on the current realities; by thinking through the risks as they appear today, you should be able to mitigate them and still grow your business if you are prepared to change the business model or share the profits, etc.

I am glad I did get my qualifications (Commerce degree, MBA, Chartered Accountant and Executive Coach), because sometimes I have needed to get consulting roles, between companies, or at times when my own company could not pay me a salary, which has been too often for my liking. So I have learned about starting and growing a business both from the classroom and by doing it in the field. Needless to say the most intense learning happens in the field and not in the classroom. On a recent executive training program where I participated as a speaker and coach, the CEOs attending repeatedly stated that it was a story from an experienced business leader that inspired them to change direction or to accelerate their company’s growth through implementing the learning.
