For example, if I enter the term “Sherlock Holmes,” I should see titles of other books in the Sherlock Holmes series, other titles by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, other mysteries with a lead male detective, books written in the same style, and books written around the same period. Instead of just books about Sherlock Holmes, I can browse a broad selection of books that are related by a comprehensive set of identifiers. I can hit the “more like this” or “not like this” buttons to further refine my search.
One of the biggest revenue builders for you is going to be the sale of whole bean coffee as well as your coffee beverages. Make a big deal to your customers about what they’re drinking and give them tips and tricks for brewing the same beans at home. This might mean they’ll skip a few trips to your store, but a bag of beans costs way more than their three cups of coffee for the week. Most times customers will spend more on whole bean coffee if they get hooked, or introduce it to their office. All great opportunities.
For large runs of books, over 1,000, for example, offset (i.e., traditional) printing is usually more cost effective. A new book by Stephen King should be printed with offset printing. The books will be on bookstore shelves, not in inventory, and will sell fairly rapidly. Inventory costs are not the same problem as they will be for less well-known authors or less popular topics. By using POD, bookstores can maintain a very small inventory (or none) of most books and have the books printed when they are demanded. Through POD, a book can be produced overnight.
3) Get away – Sometimes there is only one way to deal with stress and anxiety: Get out of the line of fire. Pack up the family and hit the road. The possibilities are endless: Visit the mountains or the beach, go to a theme park, spend a day at the zoo or an afternoon at a quiet park. Broaden your horizons by eating at a new restaurant or coffee shop, or immerse yourself in culture by visiting museums and art galleries. Not the cultural type? Check out a sporting event or go to a fair. Spend an undisturbed weekend at a serene country inn ( that’s a great place for you and your better half!) or just have a picnic at a nice, quiet, secluded spot. Getting any ideas?

,000 divided by 3 = ,000 divided by 12 = 80 (approx). This is what should be spent monthly, P&I (principle and interest) on debt service. This does not include the down payment recoup, which should come out of the buyer’s pre-tax discretionary cash flow AFTER debt service. As a buyer, getting the down payment back should take 12-24 months based on the business growth and future potential. So say that your final sales price is 0k. The buyer should recoup k down payment within 24 months via the discretionary cash flow.
Teachers spend their own money on their classroom–and spend it often. This year, try giving a gift to the class you know the teacher will appreciate as well. A pack of pencils, a few extra folders, or even some treats for the goody jar are all simple, inexpensive ways to show your thoughtfulness. The items themselves need not be expensive or large in volume. The gift is not only the supplies you’re giving but the time you’ll save the teacher when she doesn’t have to run out and replenish the classroom’s coffer.
