Staying updated with the latest technology has been our cultural obsession for a long time now, and the world of business is no exception to this rule. However according to Neil Camenker unless your business model demands having the latest and greatest technological systems, I would encourage exercising a certain degree of restraint when it comes to staying up to date.
Because of the expense involved in buying new systems, a conservative approach can pay off dividends. While employees may be clamoring for the hottest PCs on the market to replace their current workstations, perhaps upgrading them would serve your purposes just as well. Part of your long-term technological strategy could include purchasing systems that are designed to be upgradable; buying a new system once every 4 years and upgrading 2 years after the purchase, rather than buying all new systems every other year. Not only would this reduce the costs of the systems themselves, but it will also increase employee productivity and decrease training time because the employees will already be familiar with how the systems work.

There are a lot of products and systems that an entrepreneur can use to thank and support clients. You can send them thank you cards, candy, products with you logo on them. I used to work with a company that gave their clients beach kits in the summer. It consisted of a large towel, bag, mini cooler, beach umbrella and a small picnic basket. Each had the company’s logos. Their clients spent thousands with them, so these kinds of gifts were easy to give. If you are on a smaller budget, what can you give a client that is unique and they will love it as soon as they see it?
Your clients do not need another coffee mug or water carrier. They don’t need another recycled bag. Pens are nice but they get lost easily. You can give them some hand sanitizer.

The Number One Solution For Your Hiring Woes
The hiring process can be excruciating. From posting the position to sifting through the dozens of replies, it’s a process that requires time, money, and a lot of patience. In fact, the American Staffing Association estimates that hiring a worker can cost 7 to 20 percent of that position’s salary and take anywhere from 30-45 days to fill. If you’re like most companies, you just don’t have that kind of time nor money to spare; especially if the position needs to be filled immediately. That’s why many companies have chosen to take the grunt work out of hiring themselves and outsource to temp agencies. Temporary employment agencies are a company’s dream come true. They handle all aspects of the hiring process and allow you to skip right to the interview phase.
