How Having Fun at Work May Boost Productivity

The detrimental effects of stress are well documented. Ask people what their greatest source of stress is, and many will name their job. Keeping the workplace atmosphere relaxed and fun doesn’t just benefit your employees, it also benefits you.

Less Sick Time

With proven correlations between poor health and workplace stress, it stands to reason that the inverse is also true. Employees who have a positive work environment tend to be healthier and take fewer sick days as a result.

Better Ideas

When employees know that they’ll be given grace rather than scolded or ridiculed for proposing a solution that may not work, they’re more willing to take risks. This can result in innovative approaches to common problems that wouldn’t have occurred otherwise.

Whether you’ve budgeted all year long or are planning a splurge with your tax return, it’s important to plan ahead when making major changes to your decor. Use these tips to make sure the transition to your home’s new look goes smoothly.

Determine Your Priorities

Are you just revamping or going for a major overhaul? Are you going to start with the living room, the kitchen or the master bath? Deciding what you want to do helps you set a budget and is the first step toward creating your makeover plan.

Measure Everything

Have you heard the saying, “measure twice, cut once”? There’s good reason for it. The last thing you want is a piece that won’t fit through your doorway.

Smart Homes through Smartphones

Today’s smartphones have thousands of apps for just about anything that you can imagine. These phones not only keep people connected to the web, but they also take photos and videos, and help people shop and stay organized.

Smartphones can now go one step further in making life easier by connecting you to your house. Many of today’s abodes can become smart homes by incorporating state-of-the-art technology that can be controlled by a touch of the screen. Lights, appliances, doors, thermostats, television and security systems can be monitored, updated and controlled all through one device.  

Internal Home Components

Some of the most readily used options can control the temperature of individual rooms in your house while you’re away. You can set patterns for your thermostat while at work, and adjust the temperature before you arrive. This can save you money on heating and cooling bills.

How to Prepare an Income Statement for Your Business

Every business needs an income statement. Large companies and startups looking for investors must use it to show the income and potential of the company. Brand new businesses or small organizations that need a loan must show it to the lenders. The income statement, also called a profit and loss statement, proves your business’ viability. 

Net Sales and Cost of Goods Sold

You’ll need to know your net sales and cost of goods sold before you can create an income statement. Your net sale amount is the total of all your sales with any discounts subtracted. These include sales fees or other special offers you used to generate the sales. Examples include shipping charges and credit card fees. 

The cost of goods sold is the amount it cost the company to make or purchase the goods that were sold. You have to add the cost for the opening inventory and subtract the price of ending inventory to obtain the cost of goods sold.
