    So long story short... I've noticed the small companies that go from $250,000/year in revenue to $10,000,000+ in revenue within 6-10 years have THIS ONE THING IN COMMON that I keep seeing...

    The owner of the company makes all the employees (usually less then 30) have some very 'high' positions.. Director, Manager, Lead, Affairs, National, etc...

    BIG NAMES, small company.

    Best part of all, those people buy into this, 'think' they feel more responsibility and actually DO a lot more work then is required, and in return, that is why the company goes very fast within years.

    So my question is... is there a book on some like.. company management? or something?

    It's a common concept, it's a sign to people (especially investors) that the company plans on becoming much larger/expanding. I personally do not like it for that reason as I feel it is misleading.

    By giving a title to someone you are essentially giving them equity. It's like when you work hard and someone comes up to you and says "I appreciate you being the hardest worker among your peers" which then increases productivity because them feel more confident in their job, synergy, and makes the lines between jobs and tasks within the company more bold. I feel it's mostly a western thing. In China, I have my Lead, and my Workers. Workers are assigned to different tasks such as accounting, but I do not call them my accountant. This may seem 'wrong' but when you have to assign someone to do a task other than accounting, they simply won't do it and find it completely disrespectful. Such as when I needed my accountant to do item research, even when it pays more.

    I'd recommend Dave Ramsey's book called "Entreleadership" - it was just released last month. Dave is great for a lot of stuff, including business management and leadership.
