...by requesting the most effective growth and profitability strategies we've unearthed from 5+ years of studying successful stores.

There are so many challenges and aspects to think about when launching a new project. Last week we touched on the eCommerce and business sides of launching Overlander.com, and today I want to shift the conversation to focus more on the management and team building lessons I learned while working on this project.

You’ll learn the great things that can happen when you set a positive culture and ensure your team is feeling involved, as well as the importance of having a clear idea of your optimal end result in mind.
