7. Use BizX to Budget for Business
Let's talk about business expenses. Before you start budgeting for 2019, ask yourself if you are fully leveraging your BizX membership. Are you planning on increasing your marketing efforts, revamping your website, renovating your restaurant(s), or looking to expand? What are your main business expenses and can you save that cash using BizX instead? Whether you've got the balance or want to take out a line of credit, make sure you're factoring BizX into your budget in 2019.
8. Seasons Greetings!
If you are looking for holiday cards, step and repeat banners for events, invites or corporate calendars—we have the best Washington and California printers in the business. Cut cash costs and use a BizX member to provide their expert services this holiday season.
9. Donate & Spread the Love
The holiday season is the time to feel grateful for our successes and give to those whom are less fortunate. To this end, you can find many ways to give in the BizX network. The Boys & Girls Clubs of Oakland, Habitat for Humanity, The Rivkin Center for Ovarian Cancer Research and Miracle Babies, to name a few. A donation of BizX dollars enables a non-profit to off-set operational expenses. BizX charities are then able to utilize BizX dollars in a variety of ways, creating real change and exponentially helping their bottom line. We encourage everyone to consider donating, if you can!
How To Account For BizX Donations
For accounting purposes, BizX donations are treated just like cash—tax deductible in the year they are given. THIS is a win-win!
10. Get Fit!
Summer bodies are built in the winter! Get an early jump on that New Year's resolution and make a commitment to fitness. Join a fitness community with Advanced Wellness, get tough at CrossFit, get personal at Ideal Exercise, or join one of the many different gyms or yoga studios throughout the community! We have members to help you look your best this year in Washington and California so whatever your flavor, you can find it on BizX!
