Growing Your Inventory? Mission Impossible or Work in Progress?

How many managers there are there worldwide depends on your definition of manager (Hostfully’s excellent 2021 report estimates 140,000) but with new small ones sprouting up daily and supermanagers investing heavily it’s even more challenging. Each business needs replacement or new inventory and the space is crowded. Where do you sit, Struggling, Succeeding, or Selling?
