ya, this is good advice.
My mother's husband (some day I will get used to the idea that I have a 'stepfather') is such a guy. He and a long term business partner acquired a small family owned cleaning firm a few years back, and this was step 1.
Step 2 was working out where to invest the waste. In their case it was in a business development team and more modern equipment.
It has gone from being a team of like 10 to a team of well over 100, and when last we discussed it, had been asked to get involved in forensic cleanup.
Pretty impressive, that has all happened in less than two years, and because it was 'waste invested' - no pun intended - was almost completely self funded.
