Growing Business Efficiently

It isn’t sexy, but Sarah Tadlock’s strategy for growing her business has been wildly successful. Tadlock decided she needed to work smarter and faster, so she reviewed every procedure, process, and piece of technology she used, then streamlined it all. Tadlock doubled her business in 2013. But she’s not slowing her pace. This year, she’s expanding her target market beyond her traditional downtown stomping grounds into suburban St. Louis. The shift seems as inevitable as her real estate career. Tadlock grew up near a drive-in theater. When she was quite young, she discovered the roof of her house had a terrific view of the screen. “Even then, I suppose, I knew location was everything,” she says.
