10 ways to save a few precious dollars in the first stages of your business and boost your potential for success:

  1. Scale your business idea back. Starting a retail clothing store or restaurant might be your dream business, but requires lots of capital to start out. Consider scaling back your idea and starting online or with one product line. As you build up your customers and your profits, you can your business to what you’ve always wanted.
  2. Keep your day job. You most likely won’t be able to pay yourself a salary during the startup stage. If possible, keep your current job or go part-time so you have enough to live on before the profits roll in.
  3. Find the hidden cash. If you’re really dedicated to starting your own business you’re not going to mind selling your boat or your comic-book collection. OK, you may not have these things, but you get the idea. Bootstrapping your business means finding any cash you have available.
  4. Move back home. If you’re not married (or even if you are), maybe you can persuade Mom and Dad to let you live at home for a while to save on living costs. If that’s not possible, ask a friend or sibling to rent you a room. Another idea is to rent out a room in your house to a college student and put that money into your startup.
  5. Don’t plow through the cash you have. You might want the best equipment money can buy, but there are other ways to get what you need without forking over a lot of money. As a warning, don’t skimp too much and get outdated technology. You’ll just slow down the progress of your business. Consider leasing office equipment instead of buying it outright. You’ll get the support you need to keep your equipment (and business) running smoothly and access to the most current technology.
  6. Keep on top of cash flow. A simple accounting program combined with online business banking can give you access to daily reports that show you exactly how much money is coming in and going out. Download helpful apps to keep your business expenses organized.
  7. Watch your receivables. If payments take too long to come in, you’ll struggle to maintain the operating cash you need. Consider making clients pay c.o.d. or within 15 days after delivery. If you work on long-term projects, ask for half of the payment up front. And don’t wait to follow up on late payments.
  8. Use barter. Trade your products and services for someone else’s instead of paying cash. For example, your Web design company might design a marketing company’s site in exchange for their handling your ad campaign. You can join an official barter exchange (search for them online), or make informal barter arrangements with other business owners. Make sure barter agreements are in writing and keep track of barter—you’ll need to report it on your business taxes.
  9. Hire frugally. You may have plans for a large staff at some point, but hiring independent contractors can help cut down on costs, since you won’t need to pay employee benefits. If you do have to hire, consider offering your first employees a stake in the company instead of a larger salary (talk to your attorney about this). Or look for college interns through local schools’ internship programs—it’s a great way to get your startup off the ground and give students real-world experience.
  10. Go green. There are many ways to not only conserve and recycle but also save money. Buy energy-efficient office equipment, print on both sides of paper, shop at consignment stores and flea markets for office furniture and choose suppliers that sell green products when buying for your business.

On September 11, 2001, terrorists took the lives of nearly 3,000 people on American soil. We Are The People And WE Will NEVER Forget! The Pentagon was one of those targets. When American Airlines Flight 77 hit the west wall of the building‘s first floor, it set off a chain of events that killed 125 people inside – most of whom were Army and Navy service members and employees – along with the 64 people on board the Boeing 757. In New York, 17 Marine reservists were among the firefighters…

<span>The “N-Word” and What It Meant To Our #Ancestors</span>

Those whom the law defined as property recounted various unique human experiences — their daily horrors and monotonies, how they freed themselves or learned of their emancipation, the surge of exhilaration upon securing freedom, and how they endured life on the edges of a white supremacist society in the decades thereafter. “If you truly knew what the N-word meant to our ancestors, you’d NEVER use it” As I pored over the narratives, I was struck less by their experiences, as heartrending as they were, than by how their experiences sculpted…

FREEDOM The most important kind of freedom is to be what you really are. You trade in your reality for a role. You trade in your sense for an act. You give up your ability to feel, and in exchange, put on a mask. There can’t be any large-scale revolution until there’s a personal revolution, on an individual level. It’s got to happen inside first. By Jim Morrison

Phenomenal Woman By Maya Angelou Pretty women wonder where my secret lies. I’m not cute or built to suit a fashion model’s size But when I start to tell them, They think I’m telling lies. I say It’s in the reach of my arms, The span of my hips, The stride of my step, The curl of my lips. I’m a woman Phenomenally. Phenomenal woman, That’s me. I walk into a room Just as cool as you please, And to a man, The fellows stand or Fall down on their…
