Episode 051: Growth and Scale are Very Different – Here’s What We Need

Welcome to the first-ever AEC Industry Podstorm! – 21 straight days of podcast episodes designed to get you and your team positioned for greater success in 2021 and beyond!  

Thank you for tuning in… and please don’t hesitate to share this episode and series with your friends, colleagues, partners, and peers! 

In contrast to our more normal interview-dialogue format, these “Podstorm” episodes are presented in shorter, more-manageable, but just as powerful chunks of focused content designed to help you take action!


Growth and Scale are Very Different – Here’s What We Need 

Today’s episode focuses on how we can leverage value to increase profits and avoid many all-too-common operational frustrations and business growth limitations.


“Business “scale” is different… It is a process of increasing top line revenue with little to no increase in expenses while maintaining high quality.”

–Peter C. Atherton, PE


“The fundamental problem with selling ‘time for money’ is that you’re not fully compensated for your expertise – especially if you’re good. If you are really good at what you do and can solve a client’s problem in half the time, why should you get half the fee?”

–Peter C. Atherton, PE
