It is easy to assume that our journey started with a great idea we drew up on our parents kitchen table. However, YDG ( Your Database Guys) was birth out of the need for two brothers to fix an existing damaged relationship. In a world where working with your family is discouraged we decided to use this vehicle to break the status quo, improve our communication and relationship.
In doing so we hope to inspire individuals and entrepreneurs to improve their relationships. We believe that your relationships are your greatest currency and the fuel that drives your sales and profits in this new economy. With Today’s digital media it has never been easier for a business to engage with their customers, tell their story and improve customers retention.
