This stuff adds up – in supply costs, people costs, and other processing […]

Can you spare some change? Recognizing change in business.

Change is in the air. Change has always been in the air – that’s called progress. I spoke to a group of business owners yesterday about change, specifically about the fact that they don’t control it, the customer does.
