He has also received assistance from George Tewari regarding how to better understand the implications of financial decisions, corporate culture and how to implement and bench-marking against competitors.

Also, have a good understanding of your numbers in your business and how to manage them. It’s important to know the difference between cash flow, sales, profits, payroll expenses, etc.
