The Power of a Dashboard in Growing Your Business
Your business is dynamic. At any given moment, customers are buying, employees are working, competitors are moving, suppliers are shipping, and payments are being made. With all this constant activity, it can be a challenge as a business owner to cut through the clutter and focus on what you need to know⎯right now⎯to make the decisions necessary to keep your business growing.
Staying on top of a small business can be overwhelming and stressful. But, failure to focus on the right thing and take action in a timely manner can, in the best case, mean missed opportunities and, in the worst case, lead to disaster. Just like the dashboard in a car tells you what you need to know to drive safely to your destination, a business dashboard provides the up-to-the-moment critical business information you need to guide your organization to success. If properly designed, it can relieve you of the worry that something important is being missed.
In this month’s E-Learning Forum, we’ll take a deeper look at how business dashboards can help you guide your business, empower employees, and free you from worry. You’ll learn:
- What a business dashboard is and how can it help you
- What critical information you should be monitoring
- How you can easily measure and report actionable information in real time
And we’ll look in-depth at how one business built and uses their dashboard and what they’ve achieved as a result.

BE Experience in Mexico
The first Biblical Entrepreneurship (BE) Experience was held in Mexico City on Saturday, March 3rd hosted by Nehemiah Project Mexico. The BE Experience is an introduction to Biblical Entrepreneurship through a practical hands-on intensive focused training based on a specific business discipline ranging from marketing and sales, strategic planning, financing a business, to succession and exit. The Experience is offered as a one day live intensive training or a 4-weeks online intensive training.
The March 3rd Experience was led by Nehemiah Project Founder, Patrice Tsague, and Board Vice Chair, Robert Fukui. The training focused on developing a growth strategy, which addressed topics like identifying opportunities for growth, developing a financial forecast for growth, and developing a 12-month growth plan. 21 entrepreneurs attended the training and represented various industries from real estate, professional services, to manufacturing. The business size ranged from small to medium-sized businesses. The training was life-changing, practical, and transformational according to many of the attendees.
Many were inspired to enroll in the upcoming BE Executive Program in Mexico City that will be held on July 2nd and 3rd. The next BE Experience in Mexico City will be held on May 26th. For information about the upcoming BE Experience training in the United States, click here.
