Useful Tips for Small Business Owners/Managers
Assess Your Operations On A Regular Basis

Fine tuning an already successful operation will add more dollars to the revenues but discovering problems that may exist, which are repairable before major damage may occur, will certainly be worth the time and expense to a business owner. Even though red flags may have been appearing to the owner regarding small problems, the lack of action may tend to cause large problems that, in some cases, may not be reversible, even if corrective measures are taken. Suggested items for consideration on an ONGOING basis should be:

- What is MY level of motivation for continuation of business during downturns in revenues?

If you would like more information about this topic or to discuss your business needs, a FREE and CONFIDENTIAL visit with Ron Acree, Director of the TN Small Business Development Center, (JSCC), may be helpful. Contact the Chamber office at (731)968-2126 to schedule an appointment during the date of his monthly visit there. This business counseling is offered as an additional service of YOUR Chamber of Commerce.
