First of all, thank you so much to everyone who participated in my first challenge. I was blown away by your ideas! The winners will be announced in the June issue of Inc. Magazine.

Are you ready for the next challenge? Here it is:

Waiting for the Check

By my humble estimation, we waste a gazillion hours a year waiting for the check after business lunches. That’s a ton of money in billable hours. Sure, your waiter doesn't want to be rude and throw it down early. But then it's hard to find him when it’s time to go and get back to work. What could we do that would work universally and cost a restaurant little or nothing to implement?

What's your best idea? Submit one of my favorite answers, and we'll publish your name and your solution in an upcoming issue of Inc. Magazine. Be creative! Remember, I'm looking for solutions that go beyond the obvious.

Submissions must be received by Tuesday, May 7. Good luck!
