🏦 The management of your margins only becomes more important as you scale. We liked how the SaaS CFO addresses margin by spitting his P&L into two simple layers: gross profit and operating leverage. Gross profit is just your revenue less COGS, and should scale at a relatively similar rate as revenue. Operating leverage, on the other hand, should be closer to a fixed cost as you scale, growing at a much slower rate than revenues. Check out the equation below to calculate – the scale maximum for positive operating leverage is $1, meaning if you achieve $1 of operating leverage, you kept operating expenses flat year over year.
