What Can You Spare?

Spare some change? Spare some time? Who can't remember the infamous, spare a square episode of Seinfeld. I was thinking about being "sparing" this morning when I used the last tiny amount of hair gel. I was already low, but today I emptied it. As it was getting low, however, I started using the gel sparingly. So it got me thinking, what else do we start to use sparingly when we get low on it? How does this apply to you as a business owner?

Time. That's the answer, the answer to just about everything under the sun when it relates to running a business. Time is often sacrificed for other things. Maybe you sacrificed some family time to stay at work, or maybe you sacrificed some business time for a 1 p.m. tee time. Either way, we never seem to have enough time in our busy lives to accomplish everything we need to do.

There are tasks and projects in your day-to-day lives that absolutely must take priority over others, such as taking care of customers needs, or even more basic items like getting that second cup of coffee to get you through the day. Other projects get left by the way side, and over time (you guessed it) it's forgotten about. That's what I want to focus on here.

Not to overuse this word here, but when is the last time you updated your website? Or maybe the last refresh of photos and key information that will attract potential customers or returning ones? If the answer is anything other than very recently, its TIME to find a new web company.

The melody has irregular structure for a Broadway tune. Firstly, as opposed to beginning in a noteworthy key, as most Broadway melodies do, it starts in a minor key, which is darker and more proper for the Depression. While examining the prosperous past and building the railways, the tune hops an octave and moves quickly into a noteworthy key, bringing out vitality and good faith. It then returns to the expanded overwhelming of the minor key in "time" in the line "Once I manufactured a railroad, made it run/Made it race against time," denoting the end of prosperous times, and changing to a thoughtful state of mind"
