Running a manufacturing company is stressful in the best of circumstances, but when your business handles custom orders with varying costs, it can be overwhelming.

This gives you the confidence to take on the right orders and the courage to turn down the ones that won’t help — and may even hurt — your business.

Determining the cost of goods manufactured is literally the difference between being a profitable business and going under after taking losses on orders you shouldn’t have accepted. This guide will help you understand the basics of job order costing and how to implement it in your business.

What Is a Credit Card? And Should You Own One?

Credit cards let you borrow money from a bank under the agreement that you’ll repay it by your bill’s due date or incur interest charges.

The ability to buy now and pay later outmatches other forms of payment, such as debit cards or cash, which both require you to have the money available for payment at the time of purchase. In addition to having more flexibility with payments, credit cards help you to establish a credit score so you can qualify for other financial products, such as loans and mortgages.

There also can be some monetary perks to having a credit card, where cardholders can earn rewards on every purchase, which can be later cashed in for travel, statement credits and more. Some credit cards also offer intro interest-free periods.

And with laws like the CARD Act and Fair Credit Billing Act that help regulate the industry and provide higher

Unemployed? New nonprofit aims to get Virginians back to work

NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) — Since mid-March, more than one million Virginians have filed for unemployment, many as a direct result of the COVID-19 shutdowns.

Former Norfolk resident Glenn Youngkin and his wife knew jobs were out there. The problem was, many people looking for work didn’t have the skills needed to get hired.

“We saw the huge layoffs that were happening. So, we started to think long and hard about how we could help those people,” explained Youngkin. “We began to really look at re-training and re-skilling people for industries that were growing faster and actually wanted to hire people.”

“What is most compelling are three sectors, technology, healthcare and manufacturing. These are jobs in the technology sector like a cloud

The truth is somewhere in the middle, with the caveat that pretty much everyone in the West rolled their eyes at Trump’s bizarre assertion that raking leaves on the forest floor would reduce the fire risk.

To be clear, climate change certainly
