Hack My Rental Business: 3 Hacks for Simpler Rentals & Reservations

We’re so glad you can join us again for more awesome hacks for your life and business. As spring is full swing with summer soon to come here in the U.S., we know that rental businesses are going especially with beach-goers, special occasions, recreational entertainment, and more.

What’s a vacation without being able to do something that is fun or exciting whether that’s catching some waves on a surfboard or heading to the batting cage for a challenge? About two years ago, my family and I went to the beach, and it was so hot. We decided in the afternoon after thinking of things that we could do, that we would go to a baseball batting cage. We rented out a cage and many rounds. Needless to say, I barely made hits each time the machine threw a ball, but we had fun.

So for our rental business owners, today we’re thinking of you. And we can imagine some of the issues that you’ve faced whether you rent out sporting goods, heavy equipment, electronics, or more. We’ve put together 3 scenarios that you’ve likely run into with your business and some solutions to help.

What's Your Morning Routine? Here Are 5 Practices You Can Try

The morning is one of the most beautiful times of the day. It's when we're greeted by the refreshing warmth of the sun as its rays are cast upon our bedroom walls, and when we're getting ourselves prepared to tackle the tasks of the day.

But, before each of us jump right into the things on our to-do lists, we tend to have a run-down in our brains of what is most important, what could be completed the fastest, and what might be a more long and drawn out task. What matters at the end of the day, though, is what we have completed in the 24 hours that we were given. Efficient daily scheduling is highly important, and we know that when we don't prioritize our time or plan out our days, then things can run amuck.

We’re so glad you’re back with us this week! Last week was Teacher Appreciation Week, and we shared 3 hacks that could help our teachers.

In light of the many festivities that occur in the spring like graduations, weddings, conferences, and more, we have events on our mind.

We want to congratulate the Class of 2017 for their hard work and accomplishments.

Since we’ll be looking at events today, I want you to pause for just a minute or two and think...what is one of the most important factors that you take into consideration when attending an event?

Facing a tough decision? Try slowing down.

Have you ever wondered why, when you’re going to bed at night, it’s so easy to decide you’re going to wake up and go exercise in the morning, but when you wake up, all you want to do is turn the alarm off and catch some more shut eye?

I do. I wonder, “What happened to that motivated girl from 6 hours ago? Did she move to a new body overnight? Come on lady, get out of the bed!"

I realize that when we’re waking up we’re not our most rational selves. Until we’re fully awake, falling back to sleep just feels so inviting. But there’s more at work here, and it all comes back to what makes a decision difficult in the first place.

TED published Ruth Chang’s talk on hard choices a while back and it changed my frame of reference when facing any difficult decision. It’s when we are faced with hard choices that we get to decide who we really are.

Let’s say that you want to be healthy but you also want to eat tasty food. For breakfast, you’re offered either bland granola and plain yogurt or a hot, glazed Krispy Kreme donut. Which do you choose?
