What are five things you can do today that will make your business more efficient?
As your business grows you will encounter new challenges with clients and staff that may seem overwhelming. Fortunately you are not alone, using the right tools for the job will help your business become scalable so you can grow as much as you need.

Nowadays, we all store our information on computers. We store our documents, spreadsheets, presentations, photos, videos, and even music on them.

There are a few flaws with using awkward passwords: either people soon forget them or they write them down in a publicly visible locations [think: stickies on monitor].
Thankfully, there are applications called “Password Wallets” or “Password Managers” that can help us be secure while giving our mind a break. You can store hundreds of passwords in these applications including their respective usernames, URLs, or any additional information you might need. The beauty of this is that all the information is encrypted (not readable) unless you enter a “Master” password, without which the data is useless.
Thou shall never hesitate to ask a question to a peer if that question could help your work (or theirs’) progress.

Don’t base your actions on old conceptions of life and society.
Do whatever life inspires you to do.
When told it will be difficult, obtain more information and gather others’ opinions.
When told it is impossible, make it possible.
When receiving information from someone respected in a specific field, listen thoroughly and completely before discrediting their opinion. Make your choices afterwards – when informed.
