Today’s guest is Tony DiSilvestro, who has somehow managed to navigate his way through the treacherous waters of business scaling and come out on top. Let’s dive in and see what pearls of wisdom he has to offer.
How did you get to this incredible stage in your entrepreneurship career?
Tony: Well, I stumbled my way here after making countless mistakes and learning from each one. It’s like trying to find your way out of a maze blindfolded – eventually, you’ll hit a dead end enough times that you figure out which direction not to go in.
What are the common misconceptions about business scaling?
Tony: People think it’s all sunshine and rainbows once you start growing your business. But let me tell you, it’s more like navigating a minefield while juggling flaming torches – exhilarating but also terrifying at the same time.
What is business scaling?
Tony: Business scaling is like trying to fit an elephant into a Volkswagen Beetle – challenging, messy, and likely involves some creative problem-solving skills.
According to your book: what are the core concepts of business scaling?
Tony: Ah yes, my book “Scaling Your Business Without Losing Your Mind” covers everything from managing explosive growth without imploding internally. It’s kind of like teaching someone how not to set their hair on fire while juggling chainsaws – essential life skills for any entrepreneur!
How do you monitor business scaling as well as technological advancements in your industry?
Tony: Monitoring? Ha! That implies there’s some sort of control over these things. In reality, it feels more like riding an untamed bull with no saddle or reins – just hold on tight and hope for the best!
How do you deal with clients who resist being called a people-centric culture
Tony: Oh boy…that’s always fun! Trying to convince them that they need actual humans running their businesses instead of robots can be quite entertaining. It’s like convincing someone that water is wet – sometimes people just don’t want to believe what’s right in front of them.
Is there a framework for building a people-centric culture?
Tony: Yes indeed! My patented “Hug-Your-Employees-Daily” framework has been proven effective by dozens (okay maybe two) companies around the world. Just kidding…kinda…but seriously folks if anyone wants hugs advice feel free reach out anytime!
How do systems build better culture?
Systems? Culture? These words sound suspiciously similar…like something HR would say when they’re trying too hard.
How do change mindset non-people centric cultures
You know those movies where aliens invade Earth but then realize humanity isn’t so bad after all? Yeah…it’s kinda like that except replace aliens with corporate executives…and Earth with company headquarters…
Are must-have performance indicators & use make decisions
Absolutely! You’ve got KPIs coming outta every corner– ROI metrics up against customer satisfaction scores; conversion rates battling churn rates; engagement stats duking it out with retention numbers–it’s basically Thunderdome inside every boardroom meeting!
Advice have businesses grow feel stuck
Well first off stop feeling sorry yourself because nobody likes whiners okay?! Secondly try doing literally anything different than whatever caused problems before—just throw spaghetti at wall until something sticks!
After AI trends should look-out-for-business-scaling
After AI takes over world probably won’t matter anymore since machines will run everything anyway…
