Shawn Tydlaska joins us again to shed some light on the simple methods he uses to track data and how this data has helped his business thrive in a relatively short time.

He puts a lot of emphasis on making data tracking a routine or habit that you consciously schedule so that it doesn’t go undone. Shawn also highlights the rewards you get when you accurately track data and can look back over the years and see what went wrong and what went right.
