Never Again Hear: ‘Quick, Run and Go Get It!’
When I visit businesses, I often hear from employees about the small, aggravating things that go on in the company, which over time gives them the impression that “EVERYTHING is chaotic.” And yet, I know that may not be so.
Small-business owners risk everything they have to start and maintain a business. Their aggravations come from all sides—they’re the ones who worry:
- when things break down,
- when taxes go up,
- when regulations press in,
- when good employees are lost,
- when revenues are not enough to cover rising costs and much-needed retooling, and
- when customers are not getting the service they should expect.
The small-business owner is the one whose name, reputation and financial investment is on the line every day. I can relate—I ARE one! My hope is that other business owners employ the best systems possible to make all their best efforts pay off.
I lay out in my book how to set up a simple, effective and proactive consumable inventory system.
People work best when they have the right tools to help them do their jobs. An inventory management system is a powerful tool! Quick—run and go get it!
Did I mention? Great systems work!
