From Manish Dubharejia

  • “Look at your credit card statements. Which expenses do you have to keep? Which expenses can you literally get rid of and still run the business?”
  • “A proactive outreach which had just the intention of getting a pulse on customers ended up turning into several new projects and a couple of those clients actually chose to increase their marketing retainer.”
  • “We give them an option to increase their revenue or scale their agency while still keeping their costs low.”


  • Keep doing your day-to-day business tasks and keep growing your business, even if a recession looms ahead.
  • Determine which expenses are unnecessary and get rid of them.
