On the Creative Freelancer LinkedIn Group, I asked if members "know their numbers" — meaning what you owe, what you own, what you spend and what you earn. (This came out of an interview I did with Galia Gichon, of Down to Earth Finance, who will be speaking this June at the Creative Freelancer Conference.)
But no one answered my question, which makes me think the answer is "no."
Then I saw this article yesterday, which emphasizes that small businesses who know their numbers are most likely to succeed.
So I ask again, do you know your numbers and if not, why not?
