Using Short-Term vs. Long-Term Loans
by Laurie Owen, SVP, Business Resource Services

"I've heard that a line of credit should only be used to cover cash shortages to pay for normal operating expenses in the months when we need it...that we should NOT use it to buy inventory. Is this true?” Here's the BRS philosophy:

Comfort Zone Breakout

"Another word for comfort zone is 'rut' and a 'rut' is just a grave with both ends kicked out." Wow. Kind of makes the comfort zone a less than ideal place to be, doesn't it? This was just one of the many jewels from a two-day workshop called "Increasing Human Effectiveness" (continued)

Tip of the Month 
Lighten Up, It's Good for Business!
The benefits of laughter at work are much the same as laughter anywhere else. Basically, laughing makes you feel good and it reduces stress. Doesn't it make sense to let more laughter into the workplace, the source of a lot of people's stress? In addition to stress relief, a little comic relief in the workplace can help build camaraderie. Creating and sharing humor helps co-workers feel closer to one another, enhancing teamwork through a sense of common history.
