Wondering what data to track in your solopreneur business, and why it matters so much?

The more that you understand your own metrics, numbers, and data as a solopreneur, the more that you can a) use that information to more deeply understand your own business, b) track the progress you make, from a very tangible lens, and c) make informed decisions about what strategies to continue doing, vs. which strategies to pivot.
