When we talk about business growth I don’t want to focus on profits. We want to focus on helping people. When our goal is to help others with our business, we are prepped to take on whatever blessings God chooses to give us.
There are many places in the Bible that mention the fact that God will give us what we can handle and He will equip us to handle the next step when we are faithful. Look at the latter part of Luke 12:48 “From everyone who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked.”
With that verse in mind, ask yourself these three questions to see if your business is ready to grow.
Question 1: Stability
If there was a tornado or other natural disaster that caused your business to not work for 2-3 months, would you be able to still pay employees and cover your expenses?
Question 2: Responsibility
If you got 2 new employees, do you have enough work for them to do, training to get them started and processes for them to follow? (If you have a large workforce, change the number to 20 or 200 according to the size of your business. Think in number of a 20% workforce increase.)
Question 3: Sustainability
If you got 10 new customers a month, could your current system handle the additional workload without bogging down? (If you are a bigger company change the number accordingly to 100. Think about a 20% increase.)
If you can answer “yes” to all of these questions, you are well on your way to growth. Now all you need to do is beef us getting your message out. We will talk about that in our next article.
