  1. If you renting are out your rooms by the day and it's slow going convert them to month-to-month short-term rentals to stop some of the bleeding or even longer providing you credit check potential tenants.

  4. Hello All I've been twiddling my thumbs a lot lately and have turned to reading to pass the time waiting for things to improve. I recently finished The Tipping Point by Malcolm Gladwell and The Long Tail by Chris Anderson and have been absorbing the underlying principles of the books. At lot of the concepts are not new (even when it was published in 2000 and 2006) but is interesting as it provides examples reaching critical mass in The Tipping Point while The Long Tail provides an some perspective with regards to broad product mix in the E-commerce age. What interesting business books have you read and what have you learnt from it?
