If we could, we'd take "business supplies" out back, and trash it. Many entrepreneurs starting out get too caught up with buying the latest and greatest supplies because the marketers promised them great rewards. Soon, you see them become a statistic because of their high overhead. So how do you find out what you need? Here's a good approach I use: First, focus on your business's purpose. Where are you trying to head in a month, in a year, in 30 years? Write it down. Next, go there.
Once you're running toward your destination, you'll figure out what you need along the way. It's that easy, and you'll save up for necessary equipment as you get further along the road.
Buy only what you need, when you need it.
