Are you ready for the 4th of July? I can't believe we are just over a week from the 4th of July. If you are like me (and I know I am), you have already started preparing for the holiday--getting barbeque items ready, investigating the best and safest fireworks and deciding where to watch the fireworks on the 4th with the best and easiest way to leave when it is over. Have you invested that same amount of time making sure your business is ready for the long holiday weekend?

Optimize your business operations schedule and you can spend next weekend celebrating the 4th of July, not stressing about energy costs.
Enjoy the 4th of July and remember those who sacrificed for us to have this great freedom!
