It's the same sort of pluck and spirit many of the big boys once had--before they got big.
Mighty oaks are impressive. But the satisfaction of seeing a sapling sprout and stretch skyward is just as exciting. Besides, not all small businesses are 'saplings'.
Some are sturdy, perfectly formed bonsai trees. They are carefully shaped over the course of years to be the sizes they are. They are perfect in miniature.
That's because their caretakers listen to them, and let them grow the way they are meant to.
It's not that they couldn't be big. They just shouldn't be big. Their growth is intuitive and balanced.
Some new business thinkers suggest that becoming a mighty oak shouldn't be the goal of every new or small business--that turning one's little boutique into a chain of megastores isn't always the best course.
But lots of small business owners already know that. They've been happily tending to their bonsai trees for decades, and have seen many a mighty oak cut down and sold for firewood.
