One of the biggest obstacles startups face is keeping their team in sync as the business grows. In the early days, it’s easy to converse across the room and work collaboratively around the card table. But as the employee count balloons, people spend more time out of the office with clients and teams become more distributed, holding the business together becomes insanely difficult.
For the most part, technology has changed our lives for the better. Technology in business definitely makes our jobs easier, reduces costs and allows many of us to provide products and services we never thought possible. All that being said, it’s still fun to think about the past and reminisce about the “old days” in life and business. The way things have changed can almost always be traced back to some type of technology. I’m not talking about dinosaur days or the old west, but how quickly things have changed over the last 25 years or so.
