What is the fuel in your gas tank when you are running on empty?
This is something I talk about often. What keeps you going when everyone would understand if you just give up.
Third generation entrepreneur, I did not inherit a business but learned valuable life lessons from my father & grand father who worked 363 days a year for most of their lives. The Dawes name is known in the beer industry in some of the roughest areas of Philadelphia for the past 40 years. With this have come numerous challenges and sacrifices to provide for their families.
Having over a decade of experience, I know automotive retail.
How I Help Businesses
Operating an ecommerce business of any size or launching one from scratch is like coordinating an elaborate dance. Various moving pieces all need to seemlessly work together in order for it to success. Everything from software, fulfillment, marketing and customer service need to be in sync. Having built something from scratch and bootstrapping I apply a ROI based approach to optimization or planning.
Having learned lessons over the years, it becomes easy to go down the wrong path of software implementation. Mix in complex automotive data and both time and money can be lost making the wrong decisions. Developing the proper plan and implementing it is crucial to success and scale.
Capturing orders is just one of many hurdles to succeed. Being able to optimize logistics at any company size is key. I have implemented FIFO based order fulfillment and logic which not only works for in house fulfillment but also is crucial when relying on any form of drop shipping supply chain of numerous warehouses which is common in the automotive supply chains.
