Allison Maslan has built 10 businesses from startup to the high 7 and 8 figures. Today Allison launches her new bestselling book Scale or Fail. She shares the five stages of scaling from solopreneur “Seeker” to scaling “Visionary”, what stands in the way of most entrepreneurs reaching the tipping point in their business when they can focus on working on their business instead of in it, and why scaling success is a bit like mastering the trapeze.
“It's like flying on the trapeze,” says 10X serial entrepreneur Allison Maslan.
“You have to be willing to let go of that trapeze bar.”
Scaling a business is like reinventing yourself as CEO at every step of the game, and as Allison says, it can feel awkward and painful as you let go of what is no longer working and step into new strategies and ways of stepping up as a leader.
Allison began her entrepreneurial career at age 19 and she found rapid success only to burn out trying to do it all. It was a powerful motivation to understand what it takes to scale a business and it prompted her to go on to scale 10 successful businesses from start up to the high 7 and 8 figures.
Today her bestselling new book Scale or Fail
hits the bookshelves, and Allison shares with Wings listeners:
- What it takes to scale a business and what scaling has in common with mastering the trapeze
- Why you have to believe scaling a big business is possible if it is to become possible
- The 5 phases of scaling from “Seeker” to “Visionary” and why most businesses die in Phase 3, the “Ringleader”
- How to get past the fear that makes founders want to control everything and micromanage
- Why it’s easier to let go than hang on
- Why you have to be willing to fail a little to scale
- Why women hire too late, and who are the first people you should hire and when.
- Why aspiring to “do it all” is unnecessary and unhelpful
And much more!
