posted on

August 11, 2021

In a previous episode, we shared ideas to dramatically reduce overheads, which mostly requires making a few big and tough decisions.

Today, we're talking about how to increase your gross margin, which mostly requires constant little decisions and tweaks over time.

Definition: revenue โ€“ COGS รท revenue = gross margin

I've witnessed businesses that were overwhelmed, but couldn't hire. Needed more customers, but couldn't afford to advertise. Wanted a better work/life balance, but couldn't take a day off.

Join Blaine and I in a conversation about this 2nd lever to profit, and leave equipped with ideas to start optimizing your gross margin today.
