The Myths About Scaling Up

What the Big Players Won’t Tell You
At this Lunch To Learn, Deb Morris, Co-Founder & President of Barkeater Chocolates, LLC will walk you through her journey from start-up to getting by to getting ahead. Since 2008, Barkeater Chocolates has been making the world’s most FlavorWow™ chocolates, and had to find out the hard way that getting ahead is a different journey for every business. Doing things the way everyone else does often leads to failure (and Barkeater has made many mistakes). Learn about the pitfalls of scaling up and how “making it big” is sometimes code for “losing your shirt.” Whether you’ve already figured this out or are just starting out, we’ll share & discuss how to avoid the common mistakes many businesses make by trying to be all things to all people.
