Tips for buying a business car




Buying a business car can be pretty exciting. Not only will you be getting to experience a different vehicle in your day-to-day life, but the car will also come with tax breaks – mileage and other expenses can be written off. Below, we explore some considerations before you purchase your business car.

What do you need the car for?

What exactly will the business car be used for? If it’s just for short, sharp trips to meetings you might want to consider a small, agile car that can handle a busy city. On the flipside, if you’re regularly going on long journeys then you’ll want to consider something larger and more comfortable. What’s more, with more mileage you’ll also need to evaluate fuel efficiency to ensure you’re not constantly having to load up more fuel. In some jobs, you might even need off-road capabilities too. Ultimately, you should plan ahead and purchase a business car that suits your everyday life.

Considering a used vehicle

There’s also the question of whether you want a new or used vehicle. The benefits to buying a used car are clear. They come at a lower price, and you won’t have to worry about massive depreciation as you would with a brand-new car. This can give you peace of mind as you drive around knowing that a scratch or accident won’t be quite as much of a problem. Just make sure you buy from a reputable seller and have a mechanic inspect the vehicle before purchasing.


If you’re going to meetings, then this vehicle will be representing your brand. Think carefully about how clients and colleagues will see it. In this situation you’ll want something that looks sleek and professional. Alternatively, if your car will carry your company’s branding then you’ll want something that will stand out. Ideally, this type of car will catch the eye in a busy city and act as a clever bit of advertising.

Tech features

Again, depending on what you’ll use your vehicle for, you’ll want to consider different types of tech. GPS navigation can be handy in most situations. Meetings in new offices will be simpler to find, while longer journeys can be undertaken safe in the knowledge that you won’t get lost. From there, you just need to judge what tech you need to make your journeys more tolerable.

A business car does more than just take you from A to B. It represents your company and keeps you in the right shape to perform. When you’re purchasing the vehicle, ensure that you have a precise idea of what you need. By following the above advice, you should be all set.

Turning Tragedy into Triumph Through Walking With Anthony




On the morning of February 6, 2010, Anthony Purcell took a moment to admire the churning surf before plunging into the waves off Miami Beach. Though he had made the dive numerous times before, that morning was destined to be different when he crashed into a hidden sandbar, sustaining bruises to his C5 and C6 vertebrae and breaking his neck.

“I was completely submerged and unable to rise to the surface,” Purcell recalls. “Fortunately, my cousin Bernie saw what was happening and came to my rescue. He saved my life, but things would never be the same after that dive.”

Like thousands of others who are confronted with a spinal cord injury (SCI), Purcell plunged headlong into long months of hopelessness and despair. Eventually, however, he learned to turn personal tragedy into triumph as he reached out to fellow SCI victims by launching Walking With Anthony.

Living with SCI: the first dark days

Initial rehabilitation for those with SCIs takes an average of three to six months, during which time they must relearn hundreds of fundamental skills and adjust to what feels like an entirely new body. Unfortunately, after 21 days, Purcell’s insurance stopped paying for this essential treatment, even though he had made only minimal improvement in such a short time.

“Insurance companies cover rehab costs for people with back injuries, but not for people with spinal cord injuries,” explains Purcell. “We were practically thrown to the curb. At that time, I was so immobile that I couldn’t even raise my arms to feed myself.”

Instead of giving up, Purcell’s mother chose to battle his SCI with long-term rehab. She enrolled Purcell in Project Walk, a rehabilitation facility located in Carlsbad, California, but one that came with an annual cost of over $100,000.

“My parents paid for rehabilitation treatment for over three years,” says Purcell. “Throughout that time, they taught me the importance of patience, compassion, and unconditional love.”

Yet despite his family’s support, Purcell still struggled. “Those were dark days when I couldn’t bring myself to accept the bleak prognosis ahead of me,” he says. “I faced life in a wheelchair and the never-ending struggle for healthcare access, coverage, and advocacy. I hit my share of low points, and there were times when I seriously contemplated giving up on life altogether.”

Purcell finds a new purpose in helping others with SCIs

After long months of depression and self-doubt, Purcell’s mother determined it was time for her son to find purpose beyond rehabilitation.

“My mom suggested I start Walking With Anthony to show people with spinal cord injuries that they were not alone,” Purcell remarks. “When I began to focus on other people besides myself, I realized that people all around the world with spinal cord injuries were suffering because of restrictions on coverage and healthcare access. The question that plagued me most was, ‘What about the people with spinal cord injuries who cannot afford the cost of rehabilitation?’ I had no idea how they were managing.”

Purcell and his mother knew they wanted to make a difference for other people with SCIs, starting with the creation of grants to help cover essentials like assistive technology and emergency finances. To date, they have helped over 100 SCI patients get back on their feet after suffering a similar life-altering accident.

Purcell demonstrates the power and necessity of rehab for people with SCIs

After targeted rehab, Purcell’s physical and mental health improved drastically. Today, he is able to care for himself, drive his own car, and has even returned to work.

“Thanks to my family’s financial and emotional support, I am making amazing physical improvement,” Purcell comments. “I mustered the strength to rebuild my life and even found the nerve to message Karen, a high school classmate I’d always had a thing for. We reconnected, our friendship evolved into love, and we tied the knot in 2017.”

After all that, Purcell found the drive to push toward one further personal triumph. He married but did not believe a family was in his future. Regardless of his remarkable progress, physicians told him biological children were not an option.

Despite being paralyzed from the chest down, Purcell continued to look for hope. Finally, Dr. Jesse Mills of UCLA Health’s Male Reproductive Medicine department assured Purcell and his wife that the right medical care and in vitro fertilization could make their dream of becoming parents a reality.

“Payton joined our family in the spring of 2023,” Purcell reports. “For so long, I believed my spinal cord injury had taken everything I cared about, but now I am grateful every day. I work to help other people with spinal cord injuries find the same joy and hope. We provide them with access to specialists, funding to pay for innovative treatments, and the desire to move forward with a focus on the future.”
