If you are an entrepreneur who is looking to start a vending machine business, then you may be interested to learn that a used "vending machine" may be the way to get a bargain unit for your new venture. Anything new will come with a higher price tag, so many new businesses are selecting a "used vending machine" in order to keep expenses at a minimum. The most important thing to remember about a used vending machine is that just because it has been previously owned by another company, it is not necessarily damaged or have any problems. It could simply mean that the previous owner switched to another type of vending machine, moved his/her business or simply found another line of work. A used vending machine will likely be inspected by the company reselling the unit, which should provide the new owner with greater peace of mind. A used vending machine can be used in the same way that a brand new unit would be operated. The only difference is that a used vending machine may not have all of the same features as a new model, but that would depend on when it was manufactured. Many current machines offer a dollar bill acceptor, which allows the customer to insert a dollar bill instead of having to deposit the exact change. This is also helpful to someone who doesnt have change on hand, but does have a dollar bill. The dollar bill acceptor is on many new vending machines, but may or may not be included in a used [*_*] depending on its manufacturing date. If you have decided to purchase a used [*_*], be sure to inquire about a warranty or return policy. New items usually carry some type of guarantee, which is why it is important to find out if a used [*_*] will have the same coverage. If a warranty is offered, it is a good idea to get the coverage in writing. Ask questions about what the coverage entails and the length of time for which the warranty will be honored. When starting a new business, or attempting to manage an existing company on a budget, it is important to bargain shop as much as possible. By purchasing a [*_*], you will be saving money while receiving the same equipment as larger companies. The only difference will be that your unit will have been previously owned, but that should not create a problem as long as the machine is free of defects or major cosmetic damage. A quick surf of the internet will reveal a number of [*_*] dealers.

Has it ever occurred to you how much you are saying to people even when you are not speaking? Unless you are a master of disguise, you are constantly sending messages about your true thoughts and feelings whether you are using words or not.Studies show that your words account for only 7% of the messages you convey. The remaining 93% is non-verbal. 55% of communication is based on what people see and the other 38% is transmitted through tone of voice. So think about it. In the business setting, people can see what you are not saying. If your body language doesn't match your words, you are wasting your time.Eye contact is the most obvious way you communicate. When you are looking at the other person, you show interest. When you fail to make eye contact, you give the impression that the other person is of no importance. Maintain "eye contact" about 60% of the time in order to look interested, but not aggressive.Facial expression is another form of non-verbal communication. A smile sends a positive message and is appropriate in all but a life and death situation. Smiling adds warmth and an aura of confidence. Others will be more receptive if you remember to check your expression.Your mouth gives clues, too, and not just when you are speaking. Mouth movements, such as pursing your lips or twisting them to one side, can indicate that you are thinking about what you are hearing or that you are holding something back.The position of your head speaks to people. Keeping your head straight, which is not the same as keeping your head on straight, will make you appear self-assured and authoritative. People will take you seriously. Tilt your head to one side if you want to come across as friendly and open. How receptive you are is suggested by where you place your arms. Arms crossed or folded over your chest say that you have shut other people out and have no interest in them or what they are saying. This position can also say, "I don't agree with you." You might just be cold, but unless you shiver at the same time, the person in front of you may get the wrong message.How you use your arms can help or hurt your image as well. Waving them about may show enthusiasm to some, but others see this gesture as one of uncertainty and immaturity. The best place for your arms is by your side. You will look confident and relaxed. If this is hard for you, do what you always do when you want to get better at something - practice. After a while, it will feel natural.The angle of your body gives an indication to others about what's going through your head. Leaning in says, "Tell me more." Leaning away signals you've heard enough. Adding a nod of your head is another way to affirm that you are listening.Posture is just as important as your grandmother always said it was. Sit or stand erect if you want to be seen as alert and enthusiastic. When you slump in your chair or lean on the wall, you look tired. No one wants to do business with someone who has no energy.Control your hands by paying attention to where they are. In the business world, particularly when you deal with people from other cultures, your hands need to be seen. That would mean you should keep them out of your pockets and you should resist the urge to put them under the table or behind your back. Having your hands anywhere above the neck, fidgeting with your hair or rubbing your face, is unprofessional.Legs talk, too. A lot of movement indicates nervousness. How and where you cross them tells others how you feel. The preferred positions for the polished professional are feet flat on the floor or legs crossed at the ankles. The least professional and most offensive position is resting one leg or ankle on top of your other knee. Some people call this the "Figure Four." It can make you look arrogant.The distance you keep from others is crucial if you want to establish good rapport. Standing too close or "in someone's face" will mark you as pushy. Positioning yourself too far away will make you seem standoffish. Neither is what you want so find the happy medium. Most importantly, do what makes the other person feel comfortable. If the person with whom you are speaking keeps backing away from you, stop. Either that person needs space or you need a breath mint.You may not be aware of what you are saying with your body, but others will get the message. Make sure it's the one you want to send.(c) 2004, Lydia Ramsey. All rights in all media reserved.

Sooner or later, every business will need financing to grow. Most owners will try to qualify for venture capital or angel financing. Others will try to get a business loan or line of credit, since business loans are popular with business owners.All these business financing tools work well, but they also have a very important trait in common. They are hard to get and out of reach for most owners. There is an alternative way of financing your business growth. Financing that is easy to qualify for, quick to set up and very cost effective. Not only that, its financing that grows with your business. And most of the time, you wont get it from your local bank. This form of financing is called invoice factoring and you can get it from a factoring company.Factoring is different than a bank loan and it works well if your biggest problem is that you cant wait the 30 to 60 days that commercial clients take to pay their invoices. Basically, "invoice factoring" cuts the payment time to two days. Factoring is simple. The factoring company buys your invoices (at a small discount) and pays you for them immediately. Then, the factoring company waits to get paid by your client. The net result: you get immediate working capital to pay business expenses and grow. You also eliminate the stress of having to wait to get paid and can count on a predictable cash flow.As a form of financing, factoring offers two very distinct advantages over bank loans. First, its very easy to qualify for. Your main requirement is that you do business with strong commercial clients (or the government). Second, factoring financing grows with your business. As your invoicing grows, so does your financing. This enables you to easily cover the increasing costs of running a business that is growing.A similar type of financing that is also offered by factoring companies is purchase order financing. Purchase order financing provides you with financing based on your purchase orders from large commercial clients. Purchase order financing is ideal for re-sellers and distributors that are growing quickly. Whether you need financing because your customers pay you in 60 days or because you have a large purchase order from your biggest client, a factoring company will be able to offer alternatives to traditional financing.
