Here’s your 10-step checklist

Before you take that next step toward hiring a new team member or opening a new physical location, you must assess where you are currently with your design business. This handy checklist will walk you through the considerations I had before I made plans to grow. 

How to get the most out of this checklist


Answer honestly for where you are NOW


If you're answering no, consider why


For items where you're thinking "not yet" take note

If you’ve been thinking about growing your business, this checklist will let you know if you’re on the right track. Or it could confirm that you’re happy just where you are. No wrong answers here!
