We experienced the embarrassment of telling our staff we needed a few more days before we could make payroll. Friends from our church anonymously dropped off groceries on our front doorstep. It was bad.

We also grew 400 percent in a matter of months.

Almost overnight, we were an entrepreneurial success story, flush with cash, business, and clients.

We didnt have enough staff, nor did we have adequate systems in place to keep up with our new capacity. We began to hire as fast as we couldwhich was a major mistake.
