Paul WeinsteinDear ,

 

Thanks to you for all your comments on our News & Tips eNewsletter – we are proud to be able to supply you with information and tips to help you run your business better! This month's feature article is closely tied to this subject – figuring out how to run your business profitably is key to your success.

You will also want to make sure to check out the results from last month's survey. We were very pleased with how many of you responded and, you taught us some pretty compelling things about how you use estimating in your business.

 

Paul Weinstein

 

P.S. Each month, we will be taking a quick poll. The next month, we'll give you the compiled results. Please take this month's poll on interviewing.

Pricing For Profit

It probably goes without saying that we are all in business to make a living. Sure, we love what we do, but at the end of the day, we need to pay our bills, save for our retirement and take a vacation or two along the way. Running your own business typically means that while you will pay yourself a salary, your real earnings come from the profits of your business.

This month's feature article is the first in a series that will focus on where your profits come from. Being skilled in our trade is not enough to survive in today's economic climate. We also need to be skilled business people and understand how to make sure we are operating profitably. Click here to read this month's feature article.
