Example: When we had a budget crunch in 2018, I checked with finance and made some important personnel decisions that saved the company money. For instance, we were spending too much on contracting outside for tasks we could handle in-house. There were even smaller things, like janitorial services, which I was able to halve just to get us through that tough few quarters.
