Oh to Have His Problems

In Joel Spolsky’s latest column in Inc. magazine he laments the dangers of his company’s ‘slow’ growth. How slow?

We’ve gone from two to 25 employees in about a decade by growing, on average, 54 percent a year.

According to Joel’s other writings, he achieved and maintained this growth without a cent of debt or outside funding. I’d call that high growth. Impressive even. Maybe I’d go as far as stellar.
