If your Maserati is in the shop, it doesn’t matter how fast it can do 0 to 60. Being the coolest kid in school doesn’t help if you can’t line up a date for prom. And that million-dollar bank account might be great, but it doesn’t help if you just lost your wallet and cell phone.
What about your social media? Sure, based on all the ‘likes’ you’ve been getting you should be more popular than ice cream, but are the likes really helping you? You can’t eat likes, and good wishes don’t help you pay your staff or buy new equipment. You need to make sure that your popularity is translating into actual sales.
