On Demand All businesses, regardless of size or age, are comprised of critical functional areas that organize the work they perform and the accountabilities of the people performing that work.

On Demand Entrepreneurs are notorious for starting a business, jumping in with both feet. We love that about the entrepreneurial spirit. But it also creates pain points around growth. Entrepreneurs start their business then suddenly try to build the airplane in the air.

If they only had better-defined processes, and tasks; they could hand much of this over to others - BINGO the good life!
