The Biggest Challenges Small Businesses Face

Running a small business isn’t easy. Many startups fail due to problems with mismanagement. Some people underestimate the challenges they may face as small business owners. Starting a small business is often likened to taking a leap of faith. While this can certainly be true in some regards, you don’t have to turn a blind eye to the extent of the tasks you face. Prepare to face the challenges head on. 

Planning 

There is something to be said for the rare business that goes from 0 to 60 without a plan. To be successful, most businesses require detailed preparation. While this may sound like Business 101, it is often surprisingly neglected by small businesses. Many business owners go full speed ahead without taking the time to write a business plan. The Small Business Administration is a great resource for how to create a successful plan.

DIY Shabby Chic Decor

DIY Shabby Chic Decor

First coined in the late 1980s by British fashion designer Rachel Ashwell, “Shabby Chic” is a soft, timeworn, romantic style that features a palette of delicate whites, blues, greens, peach and pinks. Pieces are often distressed to give an antique patina to them. While designer pieces command designer prices, the good news is that it’s easy to make your own shabby chic decor.

Lighting

Search thrift shops and garage sales for chandelier or lantern-style pieces with great lines and details. The more details a piece has, the easier it is to give it a distressed look. Paint it to match your color scheme and lightly sand the areas that would get the most wear. You can also dress up plain lines with large glass beads. Loop fishing line over fixtures and then string them on. Keep the colors light or transparent for the best effect.

Fall Maintenance Checklist for Your Home

Fall Maintenance Checklist for Your Home

Autumn’s crisp air and brightly painted leaves are just around the corner. It’s a beautiful season, and a great time to perform maintenance tasks before winter’s cold and snow set in. Take care of these things to keep your home in top shape.

Interior

Most people think of yard work when they visualize fall, but inspecting the interior of your home is just as important as the outside.

-Have an HVAC professional check your furnace for performance and carbon monoxide leaks. In addition, change your heater’s filter and stock up on enough new filters to change them every month during the winter.

-Inspect and clean the heating ducts and vents. You don’t want to find your toddler’s missing toy via the scent of melting plastic wafting through the air.

Managing a Social Media Disaster

Managing a Social Media Disaster

In 1785, when Robert Burns wrote that, “The best-laid schemes o' mice an' men often go awry,” it’s safe to say he had no clue how well that phrase would apply to social media. While social media can be a valuable marketing tool, it can also be quite volatile. Screens add distance and a layer of isolation that leads some people to believe that it’s okay to type things they’d never say in person. When this vitriol is directed at your business, things can escalate quickly. If you find yourself in the middle of a social media disaster, follow these tips to resolve the situation promptly and professionally.
