From the Desk of the Executive Director In This Issue

April has come and gone, spring is in the air and summer is just around the corner. Spring also happens to be a great time to clean up both your business and personal items.

Have you already given up on those New Year's resolutions you made for work? It's not too late to change those familiar habits. Without even knowing it, you could be muddying your bottom line or strangling your profitability. Here are some things to get you started:

  • Have you ever missed a deadline or have your clients or employee feels neglected? Have you received customer complaints just because there are too many unopened emails in your inbox? You might want to try to organize your email inbox following the advice found in this Inc.com article.

  • Are you running out of computer disk space? If so, this is a good time to clean-up your files and do a back-up at the same time. The most important files to backup are probably your documents, pictures, music, and other user files, such as desktop emails and application settings. It's important to create local backups to an external drive or another PC. As a secondary backup you may want to have it stored in the cloud with data backup plan so that you can also access your data anywhere online, you can find out more here.

  • Did you know that May is the month to celebrate small businesses? National Small Business Week is May 20th - May 26th. To gear up for this special week, The Company Corporation is hosting complimentary webinars throughout the month of May to educate small business owners on topics that are crucial to the success of their business.
