Companies Get Harder as they Get Larger (not easier)

It’s funny… when you start a company you think the larger it gets the easier it is going to be – as you’re able to start handing off jobs and deligate your team.

However, no one really explains to you the larger it gets the harder it actually gets.

Yes.. you can hand off those jobs to the other members in your team and they can take complete autonomy over the decision making, but there are all the little things that no one ever talks about – culture, strategy, team structure, heirarchy, wages, policies on pretty much everything from HR to Finance.

Sometimes a lifestyle business in which the owner can have an amazing lifestyle really is the best way to go!


Tara AI – Free Alternative to Jira, Asana and Other Project Management Software

I have just come across Tara AI (via DaringFireball), which provides a completely free to use alternative to Jira and other project management software.

I had a very quick look at it seems to have a very strong user interface and provide a strong amount of features.

However, WHY IS IT FREE?


Notion – How Do Medium and Large Businesses Use Notion?

Notion is an amazing new product that has been growing in popularity very quickly. If you have never used Notion it is a Wiki, Notes, Docs and To List manager all in one product. Notion allows customer to use the service in whatever way they choose and it’s a completely customisable toolset to meet each persons needs.

Notion is all run by a very small team at present of around 50 people and worth a valuation of around $2 billion.

At my company we have started to use Notion as we needed an internal wiki as our company has been growing very quickly from around 30 staff to now 80 staff. Notion provides a great place to have staff members collaborate on documents and organise as much information as possible.

I have been wondering for some time how other medium and large companies are using Notion? However, there seems to be very little information about this online at present.

If you have been using Notion at your organisation I would love to hear how you have been using the product to benefit collaborate, communication and transparency.
