Biggest personal obstacle many business owners have: clutter. We are inundated with paper, files and business cards. Our desk or our cars become filled with the little extras we don't have time to organize properly.
For some people, organization is never a problem. I personally can't stand my files out of place. I installed little systems to keep me on track. (I've talked about using Linked-In as my rolodex in the past and throwing away all the business cards I get.) Its best to find a system that works for you, too.
Completely on accident I found something that might help others with office clutter. The company is called The Neat Company. They make a number of products that you can use to scan in papers and file with software that comes as part of the scanner. The scanner works with receipts, business cards and documents. It comes for Windows and Macs. There is a system for any need. They even offer a mobile version you can take with you. The prodcut costs about $200.
I've seen companies that offer similar systems but nothing quite as complete as this one. The big pluses being the built in filing software and the ability to scan multiple kinds of documents.
While you're planning your budget for 2010, you might want to consider investing in some organizational help. Check out what other people had to say on the Amazon review page.
