How many times has this happened to you? An ad on Facebook caught my eye a few days ago. It boldly asked, “Which superhero are you?” I love superheroes, which I suppose is what Facebook was going for because they use the information in my profile to advertise to me. So I couldn’t help but click on the ad.(more…)
“How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time.” That’s the philosophy of Mike Wappler, president of Lucky Electric Supply. The Memphis, Tennessee-based distributor is just starting to use Fishbowl Inventory to manage its warehouse, and the employees have discovered that Wappler’s saying is an apt metaphor for learning how to use a new warehouse management system.
Lucky Electric Supply has been in business since 1966. They sell new and used industrial electrical supplies – fuses, breakers, motor control centers, switch gears, wires, and even a few one-of-a-kind items. In May, they were named one of the top 5 small businesses with 20 or fewer employees by the Memphis Business Journal. So they’re definitely doing a lot of things right.(more…)

Is this heaven? No, and it’s not necessarily Iowa, either. It’s wherever your business is, as long as you’re doing the right things to make your customers’ dreams come true.
I’m of course referring to the 1989 film Field of Dreams. In addition to baseball, that movie has a lot to teach us about order management and running a successful business. To show you what I mean, I’m going to take five quotes from Field of Dreams and put them in a business setting. Join me as we take a little walk through the cornfields and enter the world of small-business heaven.(more…)
Every year Fishbowl gives back to the community by donating its time and resources to people who need help. This year we invite you to join us in our efforts to help 3-4-year-olds at Mountainland Head Start schools by donating clothing and other items for these young children.
You can bring donations to the Fishbowl offices any time through August 5, 2011. We’re located at 580 E Technology Ave. Building C Suite 2500 in Orem, Utah. Our building has a big Fishbowl logo on it.
It’s rare to see a miracle take place; it’s even rarer to be part of one. Fishbowl is a miracle. Several incredible coincidences happened in the past six months to allow Fishbowl to plant itself on the soundest financial ground it has ever been on.(more…)
The United States of America has been a superpower for the better part of a century partly because of its spotless credit rating. Since its inception, America has always paid its bills on time, but for several generations the federal government has gone into more and more debt to pay its obligations. But we’re in danger of defaulting on some of our bills because we can’t seem to reach an agreement on borrowing more and/or spending less.(more…)
