How the Internet Has Changed the Business Landscape

When the first internet servers were connected back in 1969, I’m sure the US government had no idea of what they gave birth to. The ‘net started with only 4 connections between selected US Universities as part of a defence network but eventually grew to hundreds of “nodes” in the late 70’s. This grew to Four Million users in 1994 which, as I recall, was the first time I ever heard the word INTERNET. I stumbled through using one of the first search engines and marvelled at the speed of my 28k modem (OMG).

As a business owner now

I fully appreciate what the Internet means to me and my ability to connect with people all over the globe. I run an international business from whatever room in the house I choose. In fact, with wireless broadband these days I can be absolutely anywhere. Plugged into the WWW with my 3G stick and my mobile phone I can be speaking to people everywhere who have enquired with me about my business. In fact I think thats a selling point in itself. If I get a phone call through the computer, or on my mobile phone, and i’m out enjoying life rather than being stuck in a business office or even at home, that speaks volumes to a potential business partner. That’s why I do it often. I even plan to make calls back to prospects and leads when i’m out somewhere so they get a feel of the life I …

Paying Too Much Attention Can Cost You Money

Paying Too Much Attention Can Cost You Money

Sales and financial pitfalls. What do these two have in common? Let me give you two hints:

You walk into a retail store advertising 50 percent off store wide sale. You walk out the store after spending $150. Your budget was $80. Although it was over your budget, you did manage to walk out the store with more items for $150 than you could have without the sale.

When reading “financial crisis of 2008 to 2010” what images and emotions come to mind?

What they both have in common is fixation. For the majority of people, our minds are preoccupied with the idea of saving money on a sale and a memorable moment impressed upon our frontal lobe that seems to never fade.

The advertisement of a sale has no advantage unless you are saving money. Typically, we tend to overspend when there’s a sale which makes it difficult to save for retirement or other long-term goals. How many times have you or someone you know have said “oh, it’s only $40” (or another dollar figure) because, otherwise, the item would have never been bought for $80? It doesn’t stop there. Then, there’s something else that you have always wanted (it just happens to be that way because it’s a sale) and buy it. Next thing you know you are buying more than what you have intended. But you justify it because it’s a sale. But it’s up to you to not overspend. We anchor on the idea of a …

Learning Financial Spread Betting

Learning Financial Spread Betting

Did you think that you must lay low during this financial crisis? Is it a tough time for making money? Actually, if you keep seeing your hunches turn into fact when you switch on the financial news, maybe it’s time for you to get into financial access betting.

It’s one way to parlay your guesses on local and foreign market movements, the strengthening or weakening of any currency, or how a basic commodity will be affected by nature’s changes, the market’s demands, or the market climate into money. And you do these free of taxes, too! While spread betting can make you a lot of money, that also means you could lose a fortune, too. Actually, you can lose more than what you already put in. However, it’s this type of speculation that is calling more than a few spread traders into the market.

One of the siren calls is that it doesn’t call for commissions nor taxes. Another is that spread betting doesn’t require a sizable amount of investment in order to start. It can be a very small amount of capital that is used in order to open an account to be able to trade across various types of markets. Whether the markets are going up or down, spread traders make money. Then, since you don’t actually own the shares you are speculating on, there are no commissions or taxes involved. The cash betting firm pays the taxes so it’s much more cost effective and efficient for the …

Business Link Bye-Bye: Smart Start-Up

Business Link Bye-Bye: Smart Start-Up

With the Government Business Link closed in November this year, potential entrepreneurs will lose what has proven to be a valuable source of advice and guidance. The financial turbulence experienced in recent years has made some of the biggest companies in the UK close their doors, not only leaving thousands of people unemployed, but also making clearer avenues for new SMEs to emerge. New companies are continuing, with the SME sector accounting for 99.9% of all companies in early 2010.

Of course, not all early stories have happy endings. Without proper preparation, finding your feet as a business can quickly turn into a wobbly that you cannot recover. Without Government support through Business Link, you might ask where you can get the advice you need to start a new business? Well, the Government itself suggests a professional business coach is your answer.

How can Business Training help?

Beyond your initial idea, there are a number of important things that you should consider carefully before you are ready to launch your business. It is important not to rush through these initial stages. While your time is a valuable resource, it is not the most important factor when it comes to launching a new business.

Falling into the trap of the belief that it is very important to make yourself “out there,” many business owners have produced business cards, logos, websites and slogans before they do the necessary research and face the complex problems that need to be faced if businesses want …
