How Free Can Become Costly

Police believe a 41-year-old woman charged with breaking and entering of a church may have broken into other local churches. The woman is not a member of the church, said police.

Two Big Points To Remember:
  • Volunteer means free. Free means that you don't have to pay anything up front. But free also means that you'll most likely have to pay something later.

For every benefit that a business delivers, there's a cost. And as a business, one of the easiest ways to lower your cost is to lower your benefits.

Merry Christmas!!
