Thanks for the guest post by Jo Levy
My employees had been bothering me about looking into small business.xo for the longest time and I can truly say this is one of the times I wish I had listened to them. For the most part, my employees are really young and generally only offer suggestions that don't really add to the benefit of the business, but some of them are in college now and are learning from their business professors about things like streamlining work operations. It's actually pretty nice because they have all these new strategies I've never even heard of because I guess I'm an old fogey.
It's been years since I was in college! I'm still of the mindset that fax machines are the latest and greatest technology but I've realized I'm woefully behind when it comes to things like that. No one has to tell me I'm behind the times and I guess that's why I always gravitate towards hiring younger people. They really breathe fresh air into this small business of mine but their overall value will have to be determined.
