Essential Functions of a Small Business: Creating An Organisational Structure For Your Business

In this video, I share the essential functions of a small business. Why? Well, growing a small business (or any size business for that matter) requires essential functions that cannot be ignored. No matter what industry you’re in or what type of business you own, you must understand the essential functions your business needs to scale.

If you want to be the kickass CEO of your business that I know you can be (and avoid burning out) you’ve got to work on your business instead of in it.

Hi! I’m Dr. Tamer Shahin, the Founder & CEO of CEO Entrepreneur, where we help small business owners scale their businesses, without sacrificing their lifestyle, wellbeing, or freedom. I’m also a Serial Entrepreneur, TEDx speaker, Executive Coach, Consultant, Author, Speaker, Investor, and now… I’m a ‘YouTuber.’

I’ve grown several multi-million-dollar businesses from scratch. Some of these businesses were massively successful and others turned out to be catastrophic failures! Nonetheless, I picked myself up and learned a lot from all of my extraordinary success and catastrophic adversity.

Now, I’m taking everything I’ve learned and leveraging it to create this YouTube channel and help people like YOU scale your business to astronomical heights. Each week, I’ll be sharing tactics, tips, tools, and insights to help transform you into a “cool as a cucumber” CEO.
