Small Business Trends Radio

Unlocking Growth Potential in Every Small Business

Steve MacGill on small business growth potential Have you ever wanted to grow your business and thought “If I could just find someone I could talk with about my business, who could give me the right pointers, show me the right tools, I could work through the issues getting in the way of growing my business and make faster headway?”

Most of us have had that thought.

The featured guest in this episode of Small Business Trends Radio is Stephen MacGill, CEO & Founder of PeerSight. Steve shares how to overcome the issues that prevent growing a business.

Among the points in the show are:

  • Knowing the warning signs when the situation is preventing you from growing, including a feeling of not having enough hours in the day, spending too much time fighting fires, hearing your employees say that you’re making all the decisions, and spending too much time making decisions.
  • Identifying sources for learning and discovering how a company navigates its way through the growth cycle.
  • Learn the rules of the road for small business growth and developing a growth plan. Setting up the plan in advance so that it won’t be a barrier when you reach a growth cycle and learning to delegate the workload so that it doesn’t become a road block.

Today’s Trend: In addition to the above points, please stay tuned at the end of the program to the Today’s Trend segment. The Today’s Trend for this episode is: Hot Business Opportunites For Today’s Small Businesses. Today’s Trend examines some of the most promising business opportunities for small businesses today, including outsourced information technology services, eBay and Amazon related opportunities, pet-related businesses, and more.
