WHAT’S IN A STAT?
Often as we set out to establish our brand we have to wear many hats. This seems to be the case for any size company, but is even more true for entrepreneurs. As entrepreneurs, there are days where you wear every preverbal hat possible—CEO always, chief marketing officer (when you have money for marketing), head of HR when you have to reprimand yourself for offending yourself. The list of the hats we wear goes on and on, and the things we need to learn and master increases almost daily. One area that is hard for many to get their heads around are stats and facts. So, I thought I would help you out by outlining some stats that might help you with regard to your brand.
These stats are not meant to force you down any particular path. Rather, they are intended more for guidelines—items to keep in mind as you work on your brand that can help you get the results you’re looking for.
