Most small business start small and stay there, but it doesn’t have to be that way, says Darren Dahl. He summarizes an interview with Keith McFarland, author of The Breakthrough Company.

Intensive growth strategies include market penetration, market development, alternative channels, new product development, and new products for new customers (breakthrough product development). Integrative growth strategies involving acquisitions involve more risk.
