Owning your own business takes a lot of things- courage, time, sanity-but more than anything it usually takes money, and many times it's one's own money. Fortunately for business owners there are ways of lightening the financial burden of being an entrepreneur...if you know where to look.

Your business doesn't need to have its own skyscraper to operate like a major corporation. The same CRM applications that are used to track orders or customer information can also be used to run other processes that will make your business feel like a multinational conglomerate.

Ever wonder how much data is actually being exchanged every minute? Ok, maybe you haven't but you'll still be amazed at the numbers found in the infographic below. (via DOMO)

Audacity. A good trait in people. An even greater trait in companies because audacious companies because companies that think they can change the world are usually the ones coming up with the most innovative new technologies.

Winning people over goes a long way, both in your personal life and in your day-to-day business life, and it can be as easy as knowing how to hold a proper conversation
