Hey there! Lydia here. Welcome back to our She Knows Her Numbers Blog series!
This year, I really want to dive into the idea that you can understand your numbers. I thought the best way to show you this is to give you examples of real women business owners who are taking imperfect steps to know and understand their numbers.
This week, I’ll be featuring Elizabeth with Elizabeth Cook Communications! I met her through BizChiz last year and am so grateful for her.
