355. The 4 Phases of a Growing Product Business
The Product Boss Podcast
You’ve started selling and your business is validated, but it feels overwhelming or even impossible to take things to the next level. Know that the hard part is over because you’ve already proven that people want to buy your stuff. That’s amazing! Next up, you have your sights set on $100k and you may already be a student of Multi-Stream Machine, but still, some of you will hit what feels like a bottleneck in growth. Don’t worry! There are four phases to a growing business to pay attention to and we run through each one of them in this episode.  First, it’s important to refine your brand and business, regardless of the phase of business that you are in. That means digging in and getting clear on your business. Ask yourself… What are you known for?  Why are people buying your product?  You obviously have something they want, so what can you do more of? What can you do less of? A lot of this stage of running a business comes down to the foundation. At every level, you should be refining and turning into that market fit of your business to cue into who your ideal customer really is. As we go through these four phases that are essential to business growth, remember to take a breath and be the boss of your business!

347. The Mindset of a Million-Dollar Product Boss
The Product Boss Podcast
One mistake people often make is thinking it all comes down to strategy, when, really, the most important thing is mindset. It can seem daunting or overwhelming to change how you think about running your business as it grows, but these kinds of shifts are critical to being able to scale your success.  Chances are, if you run your own business, you’re a visionary. You have lots of ideas, you spend lots of time thinking about the future, and you dream really big. But the bigger your company grows, the harder it becomes to find the space to live the life you want and avoid burnout.  Sometimes, you might feel like you have complete clarity, but other times, you feel like a chicken flailing around with its head cut off. That burnout comes from not allowing yourself to be the visionary that you are. That’s why we’re going to spend some time exploring what separates six and seven-figure product boss mindsets from the rest. Make sure to listen to this episode even if your business makes less than that. It never hurts to hear how other people approach their companies, and it might be good practice for when you’re making that income yourself! For starters, one common trap people fall into as their business grows is not knowing when to stop wearing all the hats. When you start a company, you’re doing everything, or almost everything, yourself. It takes a lot of mental readjustment to get used to the idea of hiring people to do work for you, trusting them to do it to your standards, and even giving yourself permission to step back and focus on other things. But it’s an important step to take because, newsflash, you – the boss of your company – could be the bottleneck!  You’ve earned the ability to pick what you want to do in your company, so pick! You might want to stop going into your store, you might want to hand off your social media accounts, or you might want to step back from production. Great! Now it’s time to hire people to make that a reality. Remember that you’re not always going to be hiring for a helping hand. At some point, you’re going to need to start attracting leaders who can make decisions and keep things running for you. You’re a decision maker; not a doer, but that doesn’t mean that you have to make every decision yourself. There’s no limit to how much you can grow. Listen to this episode to find out exactly how.  Brought to you by the https://www.theproductboss.com/shop1in5?utm_source=podcast&utm_medium=podcast&utm_campaign=shop_1_in_5_pledge&utm_content=august_2_podcast (Shop 1 in 5™ Pledge)!
