We small business owners have a lot on our
plates, but as the linchpin of your small business, the struggle to make a
success of it can keep your horizons fairly limited at times. The time
commitment needed to keep the cogs of your business running smoothly can be
significant. And when you’re not wrapped up in the day-to-day workload, there
are always a thousand and one little matters that need sorting out – from
filing tax returns, to supplier hassles, to keeping staff happy. So it’s not
surprising that, for many ongoing small businesses, the environmental issues
surrounding their activities can seem like so much fluff.
Can Going Green Affect the Bottom Line?
After all – since when has going green affected your bottom line? That thought process certainly makes sense, when your horizons are narrowed – but the fact that such considerations are kept off your radar, by the day-to-day chaff, is an indication of a bigger problem in itself.

Do you want to take your business
to the next level but don’t feel very brave?
Many people think that because the
UK is officially still in a recession, it is not the time to take risks or move
out of their comfort zone. The media is constantly reminding us that the
economy is struggling, there is increasing joblessness, and financial woes.
I am not disputing that it feels
like there are challenging times ahead. But I also believe that the way we
approach life impacts on the way we project ourselves in both our day to day
lives and career.
Let me be blunt, for many people
the threat of the recession on jobs is a good excuse for not doing anything
about being fed up at work. It is easy to stay with your existing employer,
stay in a job you don’t like, or put up excuses like those I have mentioned
above. You may think that more companies are making redundancies, fewer
organisations are recruiting and more people are applying for the small number

several articles a day, and not only have a fresh stream of traffic to your web
site from the articles you are writing, but you should also have a squeeze page
set up for email list opt ins, and you should have created an email campaign.
Like anything with Internet
marketing, you must continue to market your business on a daily basis. This is
the same for article writing where you must submit at the least 10 articles per
day and do all of the other marketing techniques along with them to give them
the greatest exposure in order to build your last as much as possible. I submit
on average 20 articles per day to the top online article directories. After two
