Eight Stages of Business Growth

Your Business Is a Boat: Recognizing Different Stages 

Much like boats, businesses come in all shapes and sizes. Each stage represents a different boat, and the techniques for steering a dinghy aren't the same as those of a container ship.  

  • Stage 1— Start-Up: The Inflatable Raft: At this stage, you are testing water and developing the concept. It's all hands-on deck with a small team and minimal resources. 
  • Stage 2— Micro Business: The Kayak: You are rowing upstream, taking on a more sustained form, but you are still doing it alone. 
  • Stage 3— Moving Out of a Micro Business: The Canoe: This stage is learning to move in sync with a few paddlers and understanding that you don't have to navigate all the currents solo. 
  • Stage 4— Transitioning into a Small Business: The Dinghy: You can carry more, you have a team, but you are prone to tipping if you don't handle the weight distribution right. 
  • Stage 5— Small Business Growth: The Sailboat: Here, growth really begins, propelled by market forces and your skills as a captain, but subject to the vagaries of the wind. 
  • Stage 6— Transitioning Out of Small Business: The Yacht: Refined and more substantial, you have weathered enough storms to command a more elaborate ship and enjoy the luxuries of success. 
  • Stage 7— Transitioning into a Medium Business: The Ship: You have prepared for the long haul; now your business requires operations as intricate as navigating a massive seafaring vessel. 
  • Stage 8 — Medium Business: The Fleet: You have not only mastered your flagship but have scaled operations, managing multiple business units across various shores.
