083: Downsizing & Rebuilding a Team with Mike Moll


When Mike Moll’s social media consultancy grew rapidly, he immediately hired more people. But he soon realized he didn’t have the bandwidth or business infrastructure to scale at the same rate as his clients’ varied requirements. Payroll expenses rose and, eventually, he had to downsize most of the team he built. In this episode, Mike details the specific actions he took to rebuild his team as he fine-tuned his pricing model, simplified and automated key processes, and became stricter about the clients his company works with.
