Businesses must focus more on debt collections in 2022

It should be no secret to anyone owning or running a business. It is slowly getting more expensive to operate a profitable business and it is not getting any less costly. Costs associated with just about everything on your expense sheet have gone up during the past 12 months.

And as you’ve also seen, the pandemic caused many people to spend more money. We have seen this mostly in the form of home improvements as well as other items to make working and living at home more enjoyable. While statistics have shown that people have saved more recently, they have also been willing to purchase more.

Financial stress is a real thing, especially for those operating a […]

New website focuses on credit and debt collections for consumers

Small business needs you every day, not just Saturday

Flextime is a win win here at American Profit Recovery

By Joe:

One of the best benefits at American Profit Recovery is our flex time policy.  The reason why I love flex time is that when I take paid time off, I get to use it for the things I enjoy.  For example, (pre-Covid-19) I saw a $300.00 flight to Europe was available and bought the ticket. I had more than enough paid time off available for this trip due to being able to use flex time for other obligations. […]

5 ways to build cash flow by end of year

Improving cash flow should be a year-round process for your organization. Looking at the backbone of your business should not happen once a year. It should always be a top priority when running a business of any size.

If your business does have any challenges with cash flow, you’ll want to correct those before you start off the new year.

You don’t want to start next year off in a negative cash flow […]
