Are You Checking Your Business Light?

Often, we know our business is not as "fuel efficient" as it should be, but we don't know what is going on.  We don't have the benefit of a "check engine light" on the dashboard of our business. Additionally, even if we know what is wrong, we sometimes don't know how to correct the "carbon clog" and, through no fault of our own, we have reached the limits of our experience and knowledge.
