Sales and Operations
The company remains focused on growing subscribers, increasing recurring revenue and becoming profitable through a series of initiatives:
- Premium services that customers upgrade into from a base product

- Increase total subscribers through marketing initiatives
- Continually decreasing the company’s Average Cost per Acquisition
“We are focused on solving real problems for small businesses in a difficult time. We are built to solve problems faster and at a lower cost than other solutions in the market, which enables us to gain market share and prove to be the source for business owners in America,” said Rhett Doolittle, CEO of Business Warrior Corporation.
Additionally the company has shifted their workforce to be 100% virtual since COVID-19, reducing their operational expenses by 17% with operational productivity noticeably improving.
“Shifting to a virtual workforce during COVID scared me at first, but our team rallied together during this challenging time and we have outperformed expectations in all areas since,” continued Mr. Doolittle.
First Quarter Product Performance (Quarter ending 2/29/20)
- The company shifted from a licensed platform to their own product (IP is 100% owned by Business Warrior)
- Annual attrition is 3.5% per year (down from 59% per year on previous licensed solutions)

Business Warrior has a concise plan to scale and maximize shareholder value. The Company is in the second phase of a five stage plan:
- Complete reverse merger and change name/ticker (the merger is complete and waiting on response from FINRA for name/ticker change)
- Raise capital to scale sales operations and increase recurring revenue
- Raised $225K in the first quarter of 2020 and on track to increase recurring revenue in the second half of the year
- Perform financial audit
- Become fully reporting entity
- Up list within OTC
The company expects to launch its product marketplace on July 8th, its biggest product update since launching Business Warrior last year. Up until this release, subscribers have been able to identify issues, but the solution to fix the issues identified by the platform have been the responsibility of the business. With Business Warrior’s new marketplace, a subscriber will be able to identify a problem and get a solution provided by Business Warrior or a third party within seconds.
“We are providing low cost solutions that small businesses need right now. Marketing agencies have been gouging small businesses for their solutions while providing an inferior product,” said Doolittle about the solutions that will be available in their new marketplace.
With the merger finalized, the Company is changing names from Kading Companies to Business Warrior Corporation and will have a new stock symbol. The Company has filed this corporate action with FINRA. This will bring uniformity to the Business Warrior brand and help expand awareness to investors and the target audience.
