$100 Not Going As Far As It Used To?

Best $100 per month investment for your business

For a lot of us, $100 is a tank of gas. If you use that $100 tank of gas to drive your crew and equipment out to investigate various work sites, add your labour costs, plus any lost opportunity costs while your assets and gear are tied up on the road. That $100 tank of gas actually costs your business far more than face value.

It will still cost you $100 every month, but, you can reduce the number of trips out of the office, effectively saving you that very expensive tank of gas and freeing up your employees and equipment to work on something more productive than sitting in traffic. If you save a tank of gas per month, it's more than paid for itself!
