Welcome Darren. What's your business? Local? Ecom? Service?
Currently I own an events company. However know this business is not my fastlane. I earn above average and have managed to work 1 or 2 days with 5 off. I also own a percentage of a paintball site as a silent investor.

Hey Darren, welcome to the forum. Always nice to see a fellow Briton. I used to own an events management company, however, have since modified it so that it fits to be more of a fast lane concept. Would love to network with you in the near future.

Yes and No. It's a tough one as I can only supply when there is the need. My window of need is quite small. Most people only have one wedding, one 30th, 40th, 50th.
Curious how you’d double or 10x the supply of people with that need?

To 10x I would need 10 teams out. However that's 10 vans and 10 wages, so then profit margin is reduced.

I can subcontract jobs to other suppliers which once again becomes hassle.

So for example if I work Saturday evening and supply 2k worth of services I can double my income by repeating the same Sunday. However the money only comes when I work.

Akeem, I would really like to network with you and discuss how you have moved the event business to fast lane! Sorry for the delay in back for good

So are you looking for a new venture that can take advantage of a more scalable model?

I am definately looking to make this more of a fast lane business. I could continue doing what I do, I have a good brand and offer a great service but I only get paid when I work. I live a comfortable life but I am still slave to the business currently.
