After more than a dozen years of strong growth but weak profit, it was time for a change. Using a lot of discipline and focus over the next 2 years, Abbey led her company to grow revenue by just 10%, but to increase profit from 3% to 20% of sales. Moreover, her role evolved from working in the business every day, to working "on" the business (and not every day!). In 2019, Sugarsnap had its best year ever in every category: profit, revenue, stress level, time off, and more. In this session, Abbey will do a deep dive into the 5 strategies she used to build a year-round, sustainable business in a small market. Learn real world examples of profit strategies at work.
