As a small business owner, you may have dreams of your company becoming the next Amazon or Apple, or you might be content making a splash in your local community. Either way, you may wonder how you can make it against large companies that seem to have the people and resources to do the things you can't do. Businesses of all types and in every sector are capable of significant growth. The constraining factor often isn't the business model - it's the ambition and capability of the owner-manager, although it may take longer to grow in some sectors and some business models can be scaled more quickly than others. In this issue, we focus on making your small dreams gain wings to grow big. Hence the cover story of this issue is “Small to BIG – Challenges of Growth”.
