E517: How Mike Is Squeezing Out As Much Profitability As Possible Before Selling

Back in July, I announced on the podcast recently where my headspace has been at and the events that lead to the possible reasons why. 

At the start of August, the wheels were set in motion and I ended up selling 2 more ecommerce brands.

Dave and I ended on a cliffhanger on that episode, and this is the official Part 2 where Dave and I talk about what I've been up to and how I've been squeezing out as much profitability as possible before selling – from Avoiding Amazon's HUGE Inventory Costs, to using Freelancers to make up for manpower and more, you won't want to miss this one.
