Making Decisions with Numbers Rather than Emotions

When you own or manage a business, it’s easy to get emotionally involved.  I mean, it’s your baby.  And we all know that it’s important to be passionate about running and promoting your business.

But … making decisions based on emotions can really be a business killer.  Financial and marketing decisions should be based on the cold hard facts.  Like actual numbers.  That you track on a continual basis.  Say what?! I have to do math.  Oh yeah.

Today we’ll talk about the importance of tracking your business’ performance.  We’ll share what we track and why.  And how we use that information to make important decisions on where our business will go.
