One Metric

“One Metric to rule them all, One Metric to find them,
One Metric to bring them all and in the darkness bind them.”

I’m searching for that one defining metric.  The one metric that I can track that will allow me to set myself apart from any and all competitors.  A few things you should know about metrics…


METRICS

No matter what you choose to measure, keep in mind that behind every metric, there are people.  Metrics ultimately come down to tracking the behaviors of people.

When selecting a metric, make sure that you are tracking something that is relevant to the growth of your business and adds to your bottom line.

Pirate Metrics was one of the first widely distributed presentations on metrics.  A quick search of Slideshare.com reveals all you need to know on Pirate Metrics.

Metrics are an integral part to Growth Hacking or anything that has to do with growing your business.

Here are a few people who know about metrics – Dave McClure and Tomasz Tunguz.  Google is a wonderful tool.


I’m also working on a Start-Up course for Registered Massage Therapists.  Everything an RMT would need to know to successfully launch their own business – and not have to go back working for someone else.  It should be ready by the end of October.

As of today, there are 699 days to go!

891 Days To Go

It’s March 12th and I’ve only got 891 days to go.  I say it out loud and my heart starts to race faster.   How the hell will I get it all done in 890 days?!

It’s been a hell of a week.  This time last week I was hosting a party at the Fairmont Royal York with some of the best jazz in the world.  Managed to get a new publication launched, now I’m failing fast in terms of continuing to execute.  I spent the better part of this evening trying to catch-up and now it’s 12:30am and I’m just packing up to leave.

Tomorrow I will opt for a change of scenery and work from home.  I’ll put some time in to get some writing done and get something posted that is relevant and less of a freakout.

Run for tide to go

Hang tight, it’s going to be a bumpy ride.  And no the tide to go did not get out the coffee stain.  😦
