Your Business Needs to Scale In the author’s own words: “I remember the day it hit me. “I was in Kiev when I got a call from my wife. She was in the hospital, having driven herself there during the middle of the night. She hadn’t realized quite how ill she was, but in fact she needed surgery. Meanwhile, I was halfway around the world, and my children, who fortunately weren’t very young, were alone. But they had to get themselves fed, and off to school; their mother was in the hospital and their father was far from home. I felt helpless, and like a terrible husband and father. It took me three days to get home, three days during which I thought about the price of success. “Although I had created the successful business I had aspired to create, I was trapped. I couldn’t make personal time for anything that was important to me if I expected to deliver the products and services I had promised to my clients. My physical presence was required, and there was no substitute. No one could fill in for me; no one could take my place. Of course, this gave me job security, but it came at the cost of not being able to take a vacation or nothing would get done. I was living the life of a successful businessman, but it was not the life that I had intended. My physical presence was required at home, too. While I was on the road, I missed seeing my children grow up, let alone participating in their development. The concept of scale had become personal for me.
