Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own.

When running your business, it’s easy to get caught up in day-to-day operations. However, it’s important to remember that making money takes money. And if you don’t have enough cash in the bank to cover expenses, you could quickly find your business in trouble.

When times are tough, it’s easy to lose sight of the big picture. For example, when the economic dynamic shifts negatively, we can find consumers spending less. When this happens, you have to make sure you have a plan for what comes next. It means preparing for lean years ahead.

Bemis Tupman earns small business honor

ALTON — Bemis Tupman Chiropractic has been named the July 2022 RiverBend Growth Association Small Business of the Month.

Located at 4105 Humbert Road, Suite 102, in Alton, the business formerly known as Dr. Frank C. Bemis and Associates changed its moniker after Frank’s daughter Kristina Bemis and her husband Stephen Tupman bought the practice in December 2019. With their purchase, the practice is now known as Bemis Tupman Chiropractic.

“We purchased the practice in December 2019, and the [pandemic] shutdown began three months later, in March 2020,” said Bemis. “While our doors never closed, our practice suffered a loss as many of our wellness and elderly patients paused on their regular care for a period of time.”

While the name has been the most visible change along with its fresh interior paint throughout, Bemis shared the duo has “big dreams” for more changes in the future.

U.S. consumer watchdog to scrutinize crypto payments, Big

WASHINGTON, July 27 (Reuters) – The top U.S. consumer watchdog plans to scrutinize the use of cryptocurrencies for real-time payments and ramp up oversight of Big Tech companies as they expand into the traditional financial sector, its director told Reuters.

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) also will publish a report this fall on “buy-now, pay later” or BNPL products, and expects to propose a rule to boost consumer finance competition around early next year, Rohit Chopra said in an interview.

“Is America ready for Big Tech entering financial services? We already have started to see how the industry is entering payments. We’re starting to see how there’s interest in other areas,” said Chopra, citing companies’ branded credit and pre-paid cards. “That raises a lot of questions about really the future of financial services,” especially data privacy, he said.

InvestorPlace – Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips

Allocating a reasonable portion of investment portfolios to stocks is an excellent way of building long-term wealth. Yet, researching thousands of stocks amid today’s extreme volatility and uncertainty can overwhelm a new investor.

As starters, beginners can consider buying shares of well-known, established companies they are familiar with instead of betting on speculative stocks. For example, legendary investor Warren Buffett would buy a stock only if he saw “what they’re going to look like 5, 10, 20 years from now.”

Ahn Hyo Seop recently participated in a pictorial and interview for Esquire magazine, where he talked about working with Kim Sejeong in “A Business Proposal,” why “Dr. Romantic 2” is special to him, and more!

He kicked off the interview with some thoughts on happiness as he said, “I don’t really have any desire to win awards or earn recognition from others. If I try to find happiness in other people’s acknowledgement, things start to get mixed up. I think true happiness is what I need to find within myself.”

Ahn Hyo Seop admitted that he is quite the simple-minded person in that he doesn’t put much deep thought behind his actions, although this sometimes confuses the people around him. “I’m the type who says my opinion outright,” he explained. “If my opinion clashes with others, I’ll debate with them without getting offended. And of course, I don’t do it
