To stay competitive, businesses whether a start-up or an established brand, face the task of choosing from a variety of business solutions and tools that would give them a competitive advantage in conducting their daily operations. Not only could these solutions and tools make a big difference in their bottom lines, but the benefits derived from could be so dramatic particularly in the case of start-up businesses.

Cash flow is essential in keeping a business or company on track. Financing a business could be most likely difficult especially during these times of economic uncertainty. It is therefore important to monitor cash flow  to determine the profitability of your business. Business Checks are a great tool to keep track on your payroll and on accounts payable as well. Deal with a reliable company that offers business checking supplies for you to monitor your company’s cash flow efficiently. This way as you monitor your finances, you are also able to make better spending plans, sales and marketing plans linked to careful projections and resource allocations.

As a business owner, you must have an effective strategy on how to gain many new customers including choosing the right tools for your business. All things considered, many entrepreneurs could definitely benefit from effective business solutions for their business/company.

‘If you aren’t practicing and playing to be first, then maybe you shouldn’t be an entrepreneur.’ These are quoted by Robert Kiyosaki, well-known author of Rich Dad, Poor Dad series of motivational books about business and financial literacy. Indeed, being an entrepreneur entails more than having enough financing or capital to begin a business, rather it involves risks, thus the need for due preparation and careful planning and execution.

To be a successful business owner, one should have the creativity, the attitude, the character, and the passion. One should be aware of the risks of going into entrepreneurship and also have the character to delay gratification until he or she gets the reward or return on investments. A true entrepreneur should also have the talent, skills, knowledge, and passion to successfully operate the business. Entrepreneurship will most certainly lead to unlimited opportunities to make money as opposed to becoming an employee that offers fixed salary on a given period, say monthly. The time and effort you exert into your business will determine how much money you will earn accompanied by you delivering the right product or service to the right market at the right time. This way, you have a better grasp of what you want to achieve for your business and set goals for future.

By establishing your own business, you are also able to enhance your ability to overcome challenges and difficulties, after all, you are your own boss. You are able to learn how to secure and manage resources at the same time that you are also able to help others by employing and providing income to augment their finances as well. An enterprising culture is also developed as you hand your business to your family or children making them self-sufficient, thus contributing to a self-sufficient community as well. Finally, let me end this article by another quote from Mr. Kiyosaki regarding financial freedom, ‘People who refuse to open their minds to new strategies seldom become rich, which I guess is why there are more critics in the world than rich people.’ Enough said.

The holidays is over and back to reality we come with our well and positive outlook in our enterprise, we welcome the new year with a fresh start- maintaining the best practices we’ve had in the last year and seeking new ways to improve and achieve tremendous growth success in our bottom line. Responsible business ownership goes beyond proper compensation to your employees or paying the due and proper taxes to the government. Companies now strive to reduce their carbon footprint and it is high time that everybody choose to deliberately get involved in saving the environment. Here are environment-friendly tips to start the year right and green your place of work:

Be energy efficient. Use green products or conventional electric fixtures especially if you are a start-up business as this would help you know what your eventual operating costs would be. Use of electricity for these products is minimal, providing long-term benefits for your business. There are many technologies available out there, consult reliable suppliers about the specifications of the products that you need.

Conserve electricity as well by placing the computer on sleep or hibernate mode when inactive or going on break. You can also turn it off when not in use. When it comes to air conditioning, turn it off an hour before the end of the office day. Also turn off the lights that are not in use and unplug electronics after office hours.

Get paperless. Require all your memos and other communication be sent via e-mail. Print only documents that require a hard copy.

Reduce, reuse, recycle. Encourage everyone to throw their trash by segregating according to leftovers, papers, plastic, wood, rubber, glass, special/industrial waste.

Conserve water. Check for faucet leaks and have them fixed immediately. If possible, utilize low-flow toilets to maximize water conservation.
