Just as humans have DNA, every business has a DNA… a data DNA. As the business owner, it is YOUR job to make sure YOU know the story your data is telling you. Do you?
Don’t worry if you don’t, I am here to help you.
Data is in my blood
Since 1994, I have been working with data…a ton of data. I can research it, organize it, analyze it, create dashboards from it, report on it, and create systems from it. I may geek out from it but thats the type of person you want in your corner to set everything up.
My main goal is to get you KNOWING the story of your data and strategies to adjust the data based on using systems.
'How can I find MY Data Story?'
The story is in the data. However, there is so much data available for your business that the real story gets lost. The only way to clear out the noise is to find out your company’s KPIs (Key Performance Indicators). And what are your KPIs?
You need to research your existing data to see what data points are vital to your business success. Research is done and you look for patterns by comparing several different pieces of data at different past periods of your business. After the research and analysis, you should have a pretty clear picture of your data story.
'I dont have the time and/or the skills to do this'
I hear this statement a lot. Small business owners are inundated with so much right now, they dont have the time or the skills or both to dive into their data.
Luckily for you, I love to do this. I look at your data, ask you questions, analyze the data, research more if I have to, and come up with what YOUR data is telling you.
Once I am done, we meet and go over my findings and recommendations.
If you only need dashboards, I can set you up with a CUSTOM dashboard that pulls in your Key Performance Indicators on one platform. If you want the full package, I can go thru all 3 aspects (Data, Strategy, Systems).
The full process consists of the following steps:
