On today’s episode, Kunle is joined by Tyler Sullivan, Founder of BombTech Golf - an 8-year-old DTC Golf equipment manufacturer. He is also a partner at EcomGrowers - a marketing agency specialising in email marketing, which is also a platinum agency for Klaviyo.
In previous episodes, we have had business owners who have spoken about building a self-sufficient team and bringing expertise in-house. On today’s episode, we’ll get the scoop on how to do the opposite - build a successful business with a super lean team. Tyler has built an 8-figure business, but still only has 2 employees. No, that’s not a typo error. Tyler shares his story about how passion, happenstance, smart decisions and (a lot of) hard work has let him build successful businesses that can now run without him.
Kunle and Tyler talk about how KPIs are more important than the number of employees you have, and how building a variable-cost business model boosts flexibility and scalability. Whether you’re a DTC manufacturer or someone working on an eCommerce side hustle, this show has value for you!
