Hughes and eight other contributors in the Charlotte region in North and South Carolina offer a variety of useful insights and information for business owners and consumers. Some of the topics covered include building a professional network on LinkedIn; digital transformation for established companies; accelerating entrepreneurial success through coaching; and managing risks to protect business owners and professionals as well as their families. Other topics include developing a financial plan even when business owners and professionals are so busy working in their businesses; finding the perfect nanny and solutions for companies whose employees need short-term childcare; building a successful industrial products distribution business; and succeeding in business using strategic deployment of technology. There is also a chapter on how Veterans Path Up is helping our military veterans and veteran families on the path to affordable, stable housing.
In his chapter Hughes describes information management challenges often facing established companies and the necessary elements for a digital transformation. He said, “The amount of data in today’s digital world is exploding, and it’s a challenge for most businesses to find, interpret, and obtain any useful insight from their data. Data must be transformed into relevant information, which leads to knowledge and ultimately provides actionable insight.”
