First, Some Background

As a puzzle junkie, I simply love puzzle hunts. I was introduced to Carnegie Mellon’s hunts while in undergrad, and quickly latched onto the concept (with success, too — my team won several times). I’ve been doing the MIT Mystery Hunt for the past decade or so (no, my team doesn’t win this one). I anxiously await Foggy Brume’s next Puzzle Boat whenever he finds the time to put on a hunt all by himself. I love the Galactic Puzzle Hunts that the Galactic Trendsetters put on. And I keep my eye on the Puzzle Hunt Calendar.

What is DRR

You’ve no doubt heard of ARR (Annual Recurring Revenue) and MRR (Monthly Recurring Revenue). DRR isn’t the daily version of those metrics — it stands for Dollar Revenue Retention. It’s not a raw dollar figure of how much revenue you’re bringing in, but rather a percentage that indicates whether your core business is growing or shrinking, before considering new deals.
