The purpose of this episode is to help business owners understand how Data works.

Ian shared that for most of the business owners apparently don’t understand or have an idea what data they’ve got and how to use it.
According to AJ, Data is simply information. This will help business owners become well-informed.
Moreover, Data is the key to gaining information, knowledge, wisdom and that helps you scale your business and do your job better.
He added, it is extremely valuable to know your numbers and of course, to take action.
As business owners, you are constantly making decision and with that why not use that learning and use it to become better. Data will help Business owners make better and right decision. Thus, it’s all about taking action with the data that you have.
With this, you must ask your clients “What are your biggest Problems?” from there you can build relationships and drive bigger opportunities by knowing how to solve their biggest problems.
Apparently, there are lots of ways to use the data but the number one thing that we used it for is to drive a better decision. This is to really change the behaviour within the organization.
Other Key points we talked about are:
- Typical types of Data and how to use it.
- Steps that you need to ask and know to help your Business grow.
- Lifetime Customer Value
