What Is 'Overhead'?

Overhead is the minimum ongoing resources required for your business to continue operations.

The lower your Overhead, the less revenue you need to keep going.

Overhead is critical if you're building your company on a fixed amount of capital. The faster you spend it, the more quickly you'll need to bring revenue.

A lower Overhead means more flexibility.
