One of the most important aspects of running a successful business is knowing your numbers. This includes your finances, your inventory, your sales, your marketing, and your customers. By understanding your numbers, you can make informed decisions about where to allocate your resources. This can help you to save money, time, and effort in the long run. Another reason why it is so important to understand your numbers is that it can help you to identify trends. This can be helpful in a number of different ways. For example, if you notice that your sales are increasing during a certain time of year, you can adjust your marketing strategy accordingly. Additionally, if you see that a particular type of customer is buying more of your products, you can focus your efforts on attracting more of that type of customer. In short, knowing your numbers is critical for all business owners. By taking the time to understand your business, you can set yourself up for success.

In order to be a successful business owner, it is important to have a plan, know your numbers, and surround yourself with a strong team. These are all lessons that Brandon Neely learned the hard way. He now uses his knowledge to help other business owners avoid making the same mistakes.
