“if you’re thinking there’s gotta be a better way, there probably is…”

In this episode of the podcast I talk with Avon Collis. Avon is reasonably new Gloria Jeans franchisee in Darwin.

A former member of the ADF, Avon did some significant diligence on his business purchase during the 6 month notice period he needed to provide for his exit.

I talked with Avon about the challenges upon entry to the business and questioned him about the challenges of operating a store very far flung from your Franchisor’s Head Office.

What we progressively dug into though, is how Avon has applied the thinking at the title of this episode to his business processes and refining opportunities to grow profit.

Outsourcing book keeping and drilling into the cents involved in an activity, are just some of the ways he is going about refining costs and maximising profitability.

The focus Avon’s approach is bringing to each element of his business, is enabling him to free up his time.

Could any of his tactics be useful on this front for you?
