I've been using Mixpanel for a long time, and I feel like I've hit a bit of a data wall recently. Does anyone have any northstar metrics that may be unconventional that they want to share? Trying to think outside of the box here.

@stephanie.whitlock Sorry.. I'm new to the analytics space, and I was wondering what you mean by northstar metrics? Is this a common term?

@dianneb A north star metric is a single metric which would essentially encompass all verticals of growth for your business/product. There are a lot of articles you could find on this with a google search.

@stephanie.whitlock I think the point of a north star is that its unique to every product. Maybe you could describe your product in general?
