You bid a hasty goodbye to your software career at Initech after you were fired for grand larceny and vandalism. (That printer deserved to be beaten into submission. And left to die in an open field.) Read the rest »
Storage facilities are not just for holiday decorations, wine collections, and antique furniture. More often these days, hospitals and medical centers are using storage facilities to protect and preserve health care files. Hospitals and other health care facilities are gradually shifting towards electronic filing systems, but many still have shelves and cabinets full of sensitive medical records that take up precious space.
Clearing Up Room
Once a facility transfers their medical documents digitally, they must decide what to do with the old paperwork. Some health care facilities shred their paperwork, but others want to keep backup hard copies in case anything ever happens to their computer systems. While it is important to keep these records secure, there is no reason why they must remain at the facility. Moving medical records to a secure space will free up plenty of room.

Even if you have a space at home that you can use as an office, you may notice that you just keep stacking paperwork one on top of the other or that your inventory (if you have products) has started spilling over into your living space. If there is no room for anything other than inventory in your garage, it is definitely a red flag.
Running a business is no easy task. Between managing employees, maximizing profit, and striving toward the goals that made you create your business in the first place, the life of an owner can become hectic. Just like home life, a busy career can lead to a cluttered business. When it comes to running your company, taking care of the things that begin to pile up may be low on your list of priorities.
But watch out! This can harm you and your potential customers (both physically and financially) if it is not addressed. Read the rest »
