This is usually the point when we solo business owners start to think about what comes next for the business.

We see other business owners get to this point and start to focus on scaling and growing their business by hiring and training team members to help with the workload.

But what if you don’t want to manage a team? What if you’re happy with how things are, and want to bring in great money and help your clients without having to hire and train other people to do it with you? What if you love being a sole trader and want to achieve your business goals but still have a life? What if that one size fits all business framework, actually doesn’t fit with what YOU want?

You can build a simple and sustainable service business that aligns with your lifestyle goals as well as your business ones, and my guest today is going to show you how!

Maggie Patterson is the editorial director at Scoop Studios and the creator of BS-Free Business. With two decades of experience, Maggie has spent her entire career in client services and has been a successful entrepreneur for over 15 years. Today, she works with service business and agency owners to build bs-free businesses that put trust first in everything they do. 

A podcaster and writer, Maggie is a vocal advocate for humane business practices rooted in respect, empathy and trust. She’s the host of the BS-Free Service Business podcast, and the co-host of Duped: The Dark Side of Online Business. 

I’m excited to have Maggie on the show because the more variety you have with your business model choices, the easier it is to create a business model that’s going to work for you! 

Tune in to hear Maggie’s take on why so many business owners feel pressure to scale, what a lot of business owners don’t realise about scaling their business, what business owners need to remain as a team of one, and the strategies business owners need to implement to ensure they can stay solo and not find themselves overextended or on the path to burnout!
