Maggie Patterson on How Knowing Your Numbers Helps You Say No

In this episode of the Off The Charts business podcast, we tackle two toughies:

How to say no, and why that’s such an important part of taking your business to the next level.

And how knowing your numbers is key — and we’re talking about a bunch of different numbers, depending on the type of business you run. But especially your financials.

I love that Maggie went there, because those are two keys to my own success as a business owner too, and although these ideas might sound too common-sense or straightforward to some… Actually implementing them is a whole other story!

So if you know you need to learn to say no, and you’ve been avoiding doing some accounting or book keeping or just plain old looking at your metrics, then this episode will set you straight!

Plus, Maggie’s a fellow Canadian with lots to share about being in the industry and in business for herself for so many years. You’ll love her!
