My name is Joshua Lewis. I'm from Dorks Delivered, and I’ve got another company called Business Efficiency Experts. Business Efficiency Experts has been around for about five years, and Dorks Delivered for 12 years, so we've been going around for quite a bit. We started off as an IT company, and then we found that there was more of a need for businesses to be utilising technology better. Since then, I've started writing as a columnist for my entrepreneur magazine. I've been featured on News.com.au and soon to be published in every entrepreneur's guide focusing on your marketing.
Business Tips to Help You Get Ahead of the Competition
It’s important for business owners to understand the ins and outs of operating a business. Read on for some business tips and best practices that you can take advantage of.

Office space is an important facet to consider when you're setting up a new business or if you've got an established business. Maybe you're looking to change a business around and become one of those fancy hipsters that have people work from home. Whatever the case is, sizing up the amount of floor space that you need for your office can be a difficult task, and it's definitely a discussion that you need to have with your IT company. The reason being there's nearly no reason nowadays with the infrastructure that we have got, even though it's terrible in Australia, it's still good enough to allow for your workers to work from home, and in a flexible environment. This gives you the best of both worlds.
Planning for a Disaster
After being in business for a while you hear some crazy stories. I've been lucky to be involved in a couple of them, and some of them are bad for business and I'm going to be talking today about how they could have been avoided. One of my favourites is this potential client that called me up and they were still in the process of using our services.
How Late Invoice Payment Impacts Small Businesses
How does the late payment of invoices impact small businesses? Now we've all been there. You've been in business for a while and someone starts paying invoices late. Everything's all good to start off with, and then they start paying things late. What's worse is if you'd have to go out and buy a product to allow for it to be sold. Whatever you're doing, maybe you're modifying something and then on selling and you've had to fork all that money out for the product.
