Last Friday I had the amazing opportunity to do consulting in the Omaha Metro Area.
The client was a start-up gym looking to better manage their inventory of supplements (collagen peptides, protein, etc.) and workout equipment (knee sleeve, wrist wraps, etc.).
It wasn’t anything high end. No C-Suite meetings. No hundred dollar steak dinners.
Just one hour with some Bulletproof Coffee while working on spreadsheets at Whole Foods.
I built them a spreadsheet to manage their inventory, forecast their demand, determine their economic order quantity, safety stock, and order point. All the while I explained the math and basic principles behind it what I had built. In the end I offered my continued availability.
Now the gym is better prepared to deal with its increasing demand for supplements and equipment. Of course, as they grow they’ll need better software than just an excel spreadsheet.
But I got them started on the right track.
