Why upgrading your equipment is good for businessO.K., call me fashionably frugal. I like a deal. I like a deal where I may be able to save a great deal of money. There are times however when I've had to learn the hard way.
Years ago, I bought a commercial grade copier. For a mere $150 more, I could have upgraded to have it automatically form feed. "One hundred and fifty dollars for automatic form feed??? Nah, I don't need it." Big mistake. As my practice grew, the deal became less so. The lack of a form feeder cost me time and made my business look like small potatoes as I slowly copied one page at a time by hand. The next copier I purchased wasn't a deal (price wise) but was what I needed. The old relic of a copier sits in my home study slowly becoming a giant paperweight.
Upgrade your equipment when you can. Look to increasing your production as a major consideration as you do so. You'll be glad you did.
