Have a Holiday Party or Not. You Decide.

So here we are in September enjoying the last days of summer and anticipating the crispness of fall. Along with the change in weather comes renewed energy, a return to “all hands on deck” (no more vacations to throw work and operations schedules into a tizzy) and the opportunity for one remaining sales push to […]

It Works!

There’s nothing better than working on a project and finding out that it performs perfectly. Whether it’s a leaky faucet at home or a project at work, it is gratifying when you plan out a task and the result is just as you’d envisioned. Such was the case this week at Hub Truck Rental, the […]

Now That Summer Is (Almost) Over, It’s Time to Gear Up for 4th Quarter

I hate to say it but summer is almost over. Sure the temperature is warm and there are still more beach days ahead but the summer is coming to a close. (Just check out those Halloween costumes that are in the stores if you don’t believe me!) So say goodbye to summer and to client […]

It’s Better for Business to be a Boss and Not a Buddy

Hey, wanna grab a beer? I think XXX in Accounting is hot. What d’ya think? Oh c’mon, you know that I meant to get to it. Be a pal. Let it slide. Hey you know you let Steve do this a few weeks ago. Are you playing favorites? Now don’t get me wrong. I’m a […]

Growing Your Business Takes More Than Just Bringing in New Clients

Most of the time when you speak with business owners and ask them if they want to grow their business they answer, “yes” with tremendous enthusiasm and gusto. And most of the time when you ask these same business owners how they intend to grow their business they reply “get more clients.” (Read a related […]

How to Become a Business Partner With Your Client

If you’re in business you might have business partners. I don’t mean one or two partners with whom you have a contractual arrangement and who help you to run the company. No, I mean those people and companies for whom you actually “do” the work and therefore are also known as clients. Yes clients, and […]

They’re Baaack…Temporary Staff That Is

It’s summer and the vacation schedule is almost complete. You’ve tried to be careful and not allow for a mass exodus of key personnel to occur simultaneously but make no mistake about it, there will be days when some of your key employees will be away at the same time, and correspondingly, your stress level […]

Flying by the Seat of Your (Process) Pants…What’s the Cost?

May I ask you a question?  How do things get “done” in your office? Do you have established and well documented processes or is it more a case of “it just gets done.”  You’re not alone if this is the case.  When pushed, can you (or anyone) outline the action steps that must be taken […]

When the Left Hand Doesn’t Know What the Right Hand is Doing

I bet you’ve heard this expression before, “the left hand doesn’t know what the right hand is doing.”  It doesn’t evoke a positive image, does it?  The phrase has come to imply a lack of coordination, communication and associated confusion that can exist organization-wide (or even on an individual basis). Examples of such confusion are […]

How Do You Say Thank You For Referrals

Remember when you were a kid and you received a holiday or birthday gift or perhaps something small like a lollipop from the person that cut your hair or a little trinket from a neighbor or friend. What was the very first thing you heard when you reached out your hand for that special offering? […]
