  • When it comes to purchasing or leasing business equipment, the right decision depends on what works for your specific situation.  Conserve working capital vs. a balance-sheet asset?  Long-term investment vs. moving on to the newest technology?  Potential tax deduction vs. greater upfront costs?  As with any decision, researching your options and considering both pros and cons is the best way to determine what works best for your company.

  • Making a big decision can be paralyzing. Jobs, revenue, even companies can be on the line if you make a bad decision.  How can you learn to move forward without over-thinking a situation?  Look for the decision that both "thinks" and "feels" right and be prepared to adapt.  There's more to it than that, of course, but this process can help you get started.
