Ian,

Thanks for providing such great information on scaling for business. It's so important for beginning entrepreneurs to understand, in particular, the difference between this and merely growing a business. Some growth may ultimately not be sustainable, but, done right, scaling is all about finding a solution that lets you grow your business in a controlled, sustainable manner. Scaling should feel easy once the plan is laid out, but creating that plan in the first place is the real hard work.
