- Betterhealthblog.com | Work + Money | Fri, Oct 12, 2012 11:22 AM EDT | CommentsThere are times when you need something for short-term use only. In that case, it is better to go for renting instead of buying it. For e.g. if there is a project of building a fence, you need a saw. But this tool will not be of any use to you once you're project is done. That's why it is advisable that you should rent the saw, rather than buy it on full price.
Rent Or Buy ?
Similarly, there are many things that you should rent because then you don't have to pay much for them and you wouldn't fill up you house with things that you won't re-use. Such things include:
1. Plumbing equipment
There are many home improvement stores which are famous for providing tools on rent. When such stores are available, you should not opt for buying all kinds of plumbing tools because their usage is infrequent and they are obtainable on rent. Nevertheless, it's reasonable to keep the most common tools with you such as hammer, drill, etc, because they are used more often.

In grade school, they called it "playing hooky." As adults, it's referred to as "taking a mental health day." But any way you slice it, there are fibbers among us who call in sick when they're not - three out of 10 to be exact.
Life moves pretty fast, Cameron. Let's just take your dad's car out for a little spin, …
I knew it! You weren't really sick, were you?!
Thirty percent of workers admitted to calling in sick in the past year when they were not actually sick, according to a new survey from job site CareerBuilder.com.
CareerBuilder took the research very seriously: They had Harris Interactive conduct the survey, calling on nearly 2,500 hiring managers and HR professionals and nearly 4,000 workers across a range of industries and companies, all in the name of finding out who was sick and who was not. Most of us just make a snide comment at the water cooler or morning meeting and leave it at that.
Nope, not on CareerBuilder's watch. That's dedication!

- Jeanette Mulvey | Work + Money | Fri, Oct 12, 2012 10:52 AM EDT | CommentsOver the past decade or so, I've reviewed dozens of marketing plans and hundreds of sales messages, and watched thousands of companies try to establish themselves in some of the most competitive markets in the world.
Most Common Marketing Mistakes
My main take-away from this experience is: there's an incredible amount of really lousy marketing out there. I'm not just talking the "inept" kind of lousy, I'm talking the "would stink in a deep space vacuum" kind of lousy.

1. No Concept of the Ideal Customer
Many marketers have a completely product-centric view of the world. They know their product up, down and sideways, but have only a vague idea of who might actually want or need it, or how they'd actually use it. Worst case, the marketers don't think that's important because their product is so "state-of-the-art" that it's obvious why it's a good thing to buy.
