"Know your metrics, because one of the biggest problems with this is it's a lot more than just sending out a box every month. Obviously you need to provide world class service, but it's a lot more than shopping for a box and sending it out each month. There are metrics underneath that, that have to make sense otherwise it doesn't make a difference how many people you get signed up. You'll just keep burning money."
