How to scale up your business


We look at what it takes to grow a start-up business. The biggest obstacle to scaling a business is often the entrepreneurs themselves, says Harry Welby-Cooke, Southern African Co-Master Licensee of ActionCOACH. “Start-ups are fast-moving, dynamic and chaotic,” he says. “That chaos can be a drug. You need to remove the chaos to scale, and so for entrepreneurs, the biggest challenge is often learning to let go.” Entrepreneurs’ identities may be tied to what they do – whether they’re chefs or software developers but to scale their businesses, they need to move into business-owner mind-set, Welby-Cooke says.

Ethel Nyembe on the importance of investing in yourself


Shifting careers can be somewhat a daunting prospect, but many people, like Ethel Nyembe, do it successfully. It either works out or it doesn’t. Before moving to the banking sector, Ethel Nyembe worked in the media industry. Her career in the media spanned over a decade and included working for the SABC. She also worked in print media, doing different things, before moving on to banking. “The change in career was not necessarily about moving to banking, but about using my skillset in a different industry,” she says. The mother of two boys says adjusting from working in the media industry to the banking sector was not that challenging.

“There are many similarities between the two industries. People are people no matter where you go. I continued to use my skillset. But each industry has its own nuances,” she says. Nyembe says she spent time upskilling herself and improving herself so that she could be better at what she does. “The key learning is the ability to understand the various aspects involved in making sure you know what success looks like, whether its within the industry, or from an organisational perspective,” she says.
