Will That Business Course Bring Instant Status Or Be A Slow Burner

There is many a business leader, of say a senior age and position, been with the operation for many years and has now grown cynical and a bit stale.  Has very little ambition left and offers little in the way of inspiration to the younger generation of company directors or chairmen.   They fail to keep up with modern trends in running businesses and have absolutely no idea what is taught at universities, be that in business or any other area.  Higher education offers a different way into business leadership.  It can be hard work but as with everything, the harder...

Rules For Running Business Cover Sole Traders Too

In this country there are generally four forms of business and they are broken down as sole proprietorship;  partnership;  corporation and s-corporation.   There pages and pages of rules and regulations on the government website  They are comprehensive and anyone who runs into any problems must be slightly densde if they read all of the helpful advice and still do things badly.     For example if you have registered your company as a sole trader because you were the only one doing anything and taking money out and you suddenly decide you’ve had enough of that hard work and choose to...

Avoiding One’s Learning Curve Turning Into A Spiral

IT Skills – ah the joy that is knowing what one is supposed to do with one’s laptop when one is surrounded by an audience of ladies all hoping for a lot of interesting speakers to appear before them.    I had such an experience fairly recently in that we were gathered in a village hall in a very busy village in rural England.   Before I was even able to open my carry case containing the laptop and cables etc, I had to unload the projector and many more cables, pointer devices, screens, two off.  Then there was the unreeling...

Finding Leadership for Business

The way we start our business is going to vary from one person to another. You might have a guy who gets on well with people throughout school and on into college or university. At the school level, he would have been marked out early as a Prefect and more than likely on to Head Boy. People instinctively look to him for advice and a little confidence boost when working together on projects or schemes. This naturally singles him out later in life as one of those high achievers. There are many who start off that way but can fade...

Keep Track of Expenses

With a very new, fledgeling business, there are many little rules and ideas that should be adhered to along the way. Formulating a business plan is a major one. If money is to be acquired either via a grant, or loan, then the lender will need to see that business plan – a year, five year and ten-year projections will need to make sense. The ideas behind the product and sustainability are essential. Showing clearly how the product or service has been financed so far will indicate whether the loan or grant will be used to boost and grow the...

By holding electronic, web-based meetings. Virtual meetings. Using shared online business meetings etc. All these ideas are really fantastic and with a bit of ingenuity and...

The Wonders of Modern Word Processing

Can you imagine just how long it would take to write up a whole business plan on sheets of foolscap paper? All that scribbling out and starting over. Forgetting to take photocopies but then when the plan got changed, having to write that part all over again. It seems completely unimaginable now that we ever had to do without computers. In fact, it would have been nearly as bad with just typewriters – until the word processor came along. I was lucky enough to work for a very forward-thinking boss – when I took over the role of his private...
