1. “Close the door on all of our Covid-19 projects.”
2. “Legally split the company’s manufacturing arm from its many brands, opening the door for a future exit.”
3. “Increase EBIDTA to above 35% for a 12-month period of time.”
THE LIGHTBULB MOMENT “Our accounting team showed us that 80% of our labor costs were only accounting for 5% of our revenue. We eliminated that specific type of revenue stream, and our efficiencies across the board increased exponentially.”
WHAT LIGHTS A FIRE UNDER YOU? “A clean and well-executed Excel file. LOL.”
SHINING MOMENT “Successfully delivering an impossible amount of product to a customer while stuck in a building 4x too small, all over a national holiday.”
