It’s hard to believe that we’re already approaching the end of March! While it may still feel like the year has only just begun, the close of the first quarter reminds us that 2018 is already well underway.

By now, you probably have a large enough sample of your business’s performance data to allow you to effectively analyze how things have been going.
