If you spend more than necessary on the essentials, you'll always have a shortage of funds to cover your expenses. However, many people are not versed in the art of negotiations and they usually end up paying more than necessary. This piece covers three rules that can help you become an astute negotiator to get the best price possible on just about anything.

Know what you are talking about

The first negotiating rule that could help you get the best price on anything you want to buy is to know what you are talking about. You need to understand some important things about the product/service; otherwise, you'll be negotiating blindly.

How to Streamline Operations for Your Catering Business

Catering is one of the most lucrative and fastest growing areas in the foodservice industry. Anyone who has attempted to run a catering business knows that it can also be a very stressful venture full of ups and downs, unexpected roadblocks and days that seem to never end. For these reasons, caterers often find themselves crumbling under the pressure to continue operating if they haven’t been careful about making the right moves.

Fortunately, streamlining a catering business and improving operations doesn’t have to be as difficult as many people think it is. Here are just a few ways to make things easier on both yourself and your staff, all of which can lead to a more successful catering operation.
