"You have to trust in something, your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. Because believing that the dots will connect down the road will give you the confidence to follow your heart– even when it leads you off the well worn path. And, that will make all the difference.” -Steve Jobs

Greetings Everyone,

It’s September now and this can be one of the most important months of the year for your business. Why? It’s a new season, a new quarter and of course a new opportunity with new hopes. If you want to accomplish your current yearly goals, take action now and get them done.

The Small Business United Association website has some tools for you to generate and keep the momentum going.

  • Keep in touch with your clients: Constant Contact enables small businesses to create and manage email campaigns to help form and grow customer relationships. Click here for more information.

  • Need to grow and strategize your workforce at an affordable cost? HR Support Center puts resources at your fingertips to help you understand the state and federal laws pertaining to your business. Click here for more information.

  • Data can be accidentally deleted or damaged by a virus or hard disk failure. Is your critical data backed up? This is one of the most important, yet also one of the most neglected areas of computing. Just to give you an idea, 60% of companies that lose their data will shut down within 6 months of the disaster. Additionally, every week 140,000 hard drives crash in the US. And simple drive data recovery can cost upwards of $7,500 and success is not guaranteed. Mozy has an online backup plan for just about any size business. Click here for more information.

Take action now and finish the year strong. Let SBU help.
