“ [Right-sizing] . . . also unleashes significant staff capacity previously expended on these folks, thereby providing you the opportunity to delegate more to your staff. This sets you up to focus on business development and growth. Targeting ideal clients becomes much more clear for the entire firm once the client roster is scaled down, keeping those clients who support the firm. And with this knowledge, the team and the owner can create a specific marketing plan to follow in a disciplined manner.”
