623 Anne Gannon: The Dreaded Finances

How to Stop Avoiding Your Numbers

Striking out on your own and launching a business so you can do what you love for a living is a dream come true for most of us. 

Yet many entrepreneurs get so caught up in all the creative exhilaration they forget to watch their numbers, putting off financial discipline and systems for another day.  

It’s hard to find an entrepreneur who loves nothing more than to watch their numbers. Of course, it’s great when the cash is just rolling in – but we all know the devil is in the detail when it comes to knowing your cost of customer acquisition, your churn rates, the lifetime value of a customer, or other financial KPIs that tell the daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly story of how well your business is doing. And I haven’t even begun to talk tax.

Today we learn how to stop dreading our finances and let the numbers guide our growth.
