Welcome to episode number one of ‘I Hate Numbers’. Bear with me as I embark on this new journey. This is aimed at business owners and charities who are looking to get more acquainted with what their numbers mean. This is not a technical podcast and is listener friendly for those of all knowledge levels.
What is ‘I Hate Numbers’
It’s not about dissing numbers. It’s about getting better equated with your numbers.
I’m one of nine kids. I knew I wanted to do something to be more in control of my life and myself. My first paid career was in teaching. When you’re a teacher, people think you can’t do anything impactful. Then I got a job in industry and got immersed in the business world.
25 years ago I made my second pivot and I started my own business in my bedroom. I’ve worked internationally and in a number of different sectors since then. I have a good client base here across those sectors. No matter who you are, you can’t get away from those numbers. It doesn’t matter how big your business is, numbers are important.
