    How Can You Keep Overhead from Getting Out of Hand?

    How Can You Keep Overhead from Getting Out of Hand?

    A coke machine in the break room or a food truck party for your staff might sound like a fun idea. But the reality is – that’s overhead, and it’s slowing your business down (and costing you money). In part six of our seven-part series, How Your Business is an Airplane, we’re focusing on overhead. Sure, you’re going to have some expenses that don’t drive crazy revenue, and sometimes that’s okay. The answer isn’t to cut those expenses altogether – it’s to learn this simple formula so you know what’s worth your time, and what’s holding you back.

    The Secrets to Creating Products That Sell

In part five of our seven part series, How Your Business is an Airplane, we’re focusing on the wings of the airplane – or your product. You don’t have to waste any more time creating dead-end products. Do these two things and you'll knock your product ideas out of the park the first time.
