How to Organize Your Business for Greater Success By Emily Newberg, PSAI Membership and Data Services Coordinator At the PSAI office we welcome questions from Members about all the different aspects of running a portable sanitation business, and the types of questions we receive are as varied as the operators themselves. One common question we get from business owners both experienced and brand new is, "How can we organize our office to optimize our efficiency?" Running a business is a complex operation and no two companies will look alike as for high-functionality. However, research shows that businesses with higher profits and a happier workforce have many things in common that others may not want to ignore. Here's what's helping the most successful companies thrive in 2018. Declutter, declutter, declutter If you've heard some version of the saying "clean desk, clean mind" then you know where I'm going with this. That's not to say one is the only path to the other (as other research has also found a correlation between a messy desk and creativity), but 83% of small business owners believe an organized office is vital to their business, and 63% believe it directly correlates with their profitability. WEEKLY EDITION May 16, 2018 Dealing with Customers You Don't Want to Serve By Karleen Kos, PSAI Executive Director *Note: This article was originally published in the July 27, 2016 edition of Association Insight.

You may have heard that a new theme park called "The Ark Encounter" recently opened in Kentucky. According to its website, the park is a historically themed attraction which presents a number of historical events centered on Noah's Ark as recorded in the Bible. The Ark Encounter, as sister attraction of the popular Creation Museum, is also intended to be a Christian evangelistic outreach intended to bring the Ark of Noah's day to life. On July 7, 2016, the day The Ark Encounter opened, a group of protesters from the Freedom from Religion Foundation (FFRF) appeared at the site. They objected to the owners of The Ark Encounter having received tax subsidies since the attraction is clearly promoting a particular religious view. To support their protest, about a week in advance FFRF contracted with a portable sanitation company to provide a portable restroom for the duration of the event.
