Does your business scale? Take the Hawaii test.

A quick and simple litmus test for business scalability: The Hawaii Test. It's a straightforward concept. Ask yourself: If you — the entrepreneur — took a 3-month break in Hawaii, would the business still thrive?

This isn't about taking vacations. It's about the robustness of your systems, the independence of your team, and the sustainability of your operations. A "Yes" means you've built a machine that can run without you constantly at the helm — a true sign of scalability.

Consider this a challenge to assess the true independence of your venture. Can your business pass the Hawaii Test?
