2)Benchmarks for scalability (Where and when do expand?)

 

3) When do we start hiring Regional Directors and will the regional offices look like the main office?

 

4) Whats the law for how much we can spend on overhead costs?

 

*Prioritizing the counseling staff should be first, but we need to have a good estimate of what it costs to counsel/care for one veteran from the time a counselor receives a call to when they are passed on to a more robust treatment facility.

 

*Or, how much will it cost us to continue to follow up with the Veterans that we help initially to ensure they either don’t fall back into the same habits or continue to encourage them as they thrive.

 

*Identify the IT infrastructure and the software we will use to ensure confidentiality and which telecom service we will use for operations success. The next step is to find a corporate partner (We are legal now and can solicit).
