There are good reasons to use a business model that is scalable and has room to grow. There are consequences if you don't. We have found three viable models but they differ in many ways including how they relate to the personal goals and interests of the owners or partners. Is there one that's right for you or should you stay a freelancer or lifestyle business owner? This poses questions to consider, provides resources, and includes books worth reading and useful Business Success Center events to attend online or in person.
