What’s the single most important step from our discussion that our listeners need to take away and implement in their businesses?

I’m the Check-List King. I want you to follow these check lists and go through them and give me feedback. Go to BlitzMetrics.com/GTM and start there – and then you’re going to learn about how to do Facebook advertising for a dollar a day. You’re going to learn about the set-up checklist, you’re going to learn about personal branding which is at BlitzMetrics.com/PBG. I want everyone to go through these checklists, and if you find something that really resonates with you, tweet at me (@dennisyu), or talk about it on LinkedIn – or email me (dennis [at] blitzmetrics.com). I want to see your success. I am here because I want to see everyone be successful based upon some obvious things that we have learned through making lots of mistakes with other people’s money.
