Not every business starts out big like a blue whale. Let me explain.

"All great things have small beginnings" - Peter Senge A famous line by the renowned American systems scientist and author, Peter Senge. If you try to think about it, what did he really mean? Let us dig deeper. In Science class, we were taught how offspring develop, and as you may know, most of us started small. A person as a baby, a plant as a seed, a cow as a calf. But, maybe not for blue whales. These massive mammals are born the size of a small car. Yes, you read it right. A small car, weighing over 1,300 pounds. Pretty fascinating, isn't it? But just because we're born small doesn't mean we can't grow as big as a blue whale. Just like in business, just because you start small doesn't mean you can't expand. Take Google as an example. Larry Page and Sergey Brin, founders of the said search engine, started working on their project inside their dorm rooms in 1995. Because of their hard work and dedication, they caught the attention of various investors; one of them was Sun co-founder Andy Bechtolsheim, who gave them $100,000. With this funding, they were able to move from working in dorm rooms to working in a garage, which, by the way, served as their first office. In no time, the company expanded rapidly, allowing them to grow their team and be known as the best and most popular search engine, earning a net income of 59.97 billion USD. You see, you don't have to be born big like a blue whale to become “big." You can start small and still create massive things. You can start your business small and still end up being one of the highest income-generating ventures in the world. Being small means having more room for growth. So, let BRS CPA take care of your accounting needs so you can spend time building your business. With trust, perseverance, hard work, and the right people, your success is guaranteed.
