Tools are a nice option, but don’t put too much stock into them. A lot of times we get these nice toys but the work is not rolling in. Make sure you have what you need to survive the slow winter season. Put money into the biz and in your pockets. If you think you need a WFP or pressure washer for a busy fall season, have you considered financing? When it comes to buying the bigger ticket items I like the options of financing. Even though I have plenty of funds in the biz account I often purchase tools with PayPal credit. Last spring I finance a new iMac. Little money out of pocket and able to use funds on other things like payroll, taxes, yada yada yada.
