ProCut, excellent posts and a very good read not only for the LCO but really for anyone in business. Unfortunately many get blinded and caught up in the growth stage and completely forget the fundamentals that got them to that point of growth. It's always beneficial to reevaluate your business, purchasing decision, expenses, and goals. Keeping all of this in check can be daunting as well as overwhelming at times. The companies that keep this in view and stay true to their plan usually succeed.

I'm in a similar situation now with our company (not an LCO) keeping our growth in check. We are being EXTREMELY careful about our decision making, purchases, hiring, and ensuring our customers stay our top priority. It can be tough as you feel invincible but remember it will crash as fast as it grew. For all the younglings on here, listen to his advice. He is not only wise but speaking from experience. Best of luck with your new venture ProCut and keep the posts coming!
