Why setting up a dashboard is crucial for your business?

One of the key secrets to the success of business heavyweights like Donald Trump & Warren Buffet is that they consistently stay on top the latest industry news, trends, and competitive intelligence related to their businesses.

It’s reported that Donald Trump wakes up at 5:30 a.m. to read a variety of local, national, and international newspapers and Warren Buffet spends many hours a day reading.

This way they come across very few surprises, and they always have their fingers on the pulse of the topics that matter most.

“I already read a lot of industry related newspapers so what’s the big deal?”

In the past, if you wanted to access the latest market news and trends, you had to spend a small fortune on subscriptions to newspapers, magazines, special reports, and you ended up with a lot of clutter in your office, because of all of the papers and magazines lying around.

If you wanted to share a specific article then you had to scan it, then email it and that took forever…

“So what will setting up a dashboard do for me?”

Your time is extremely valuable. It’s the one thing you can’t get back. Using a dashboard for your business makes it so you don’t have to waste time trying to find websites, blogs, and other news sources online.

You don’t have to spend a small fortune on subscriptions since so much great info is available for free online

The news, email, stocks, sports, and social media feeds come to you in one organized convenient place!

Bonus *Having a dashboard to refer to enables you to quickly find and share the best feeds on your blog, emails, Twitter, FaceBook, etc, so you can quickly be recognized as an authority in your niche.*
