What Numbers Should Be Important To Startups And Small Businesses? Ross | January 11th, 2010

A number of small business owners and young entrepreneurs have asked us what numbers and measurements are most important to crowdSPRING. We measure many different things, so there’s no simple answer to that question. But in thinking about the categories of numbers we measure, I came up with a list of five categories – I discuss those categories in the following short video:

    Spazie – glad you enjoyed. The steam is coming from my room humidifier. I have a central house humidifier for also covers that room but it’s still pretty dry in the cold Chicago winter. I wondered whether the video would show the steam (I thought I was blocking it) – I guess it does.

    As for TweetDeck – I realized midway through recording that I left it on (I try to turn sounds off while I record) but then promptly forgot. Thankfully, I have the TD sounds down to a minimum – but will remember to turn the sound off next time.
