“Number one, cash is king... number two, communicate... number three, buy or bury the competition.” - Jack Welch
Step 1. Know your numbers - The best business leaders are able to describe their business, market and future plans, numerically. Exceptional growth comes from the precise understanding of all aspects of your business, including key metrics (e.g. sales funnel health, CAGR, and gross margins) and the status of current resources such as cash. I am not suggesting you lack emotion or passion, but rather complement it with objectivity.
