22: Growth Phases

Pattern+of+Purpose+episode+22

Few small businesses make it to the 10-year mark. To do so requires
shifting your business model, growing as a leader, investing in
yourself and your business, and learning to say ‘no.’

On the show today is Rebecca Teaff, owner and founder of Redstart Creative, a Baltimore-based creative communications agency serving those who are driving positive change in the world.

Since 2009, Redstart has been supporting brands for women-owned small businesses and non-profits in the educational, environmental and family support space.

On this episode with Rebecca, we’re chatting about:

  • Developing brand values,

  • Growing a team,

  • Stepping away from executing the work so you can lead the work,

  • Taking time away from your business,

  • Lessons learned from ten years in business, and

  • The value of setting a word of the year.
