    Need money for my idea

    Random things to consider: Being an entrepreneur is not about "looking after my idea". It's rather "What is the biggest value I can provide someone using what I have and know NOW?" If you look from this angle - there is never any lack of resources - only lack of ingenuity to give value. What...

    Cold calling Vs Face to Face?

    Phone contact versus face to face is the wrong question. Instead you should ask yourself the following: What kind of value are you giving to those businessman? Are you sure they absolutely need your service? Is there any other place they can get same kind of service? How do you communicate the...

    Year of buying: 2008 Cost of buying: equivalent of 20$ Gave me the means of keeping my business afloat for over 4 years. Still working. Battery lasts up to a week. I know the keys by heart, without thinking about them. Generations of fancy, needless-options-loaded phones passed by. I remember my...

    Would appreciate advice on a business opportunity...

    Is it possible for you to do a calculation? If you already know security business you can say how much you can learn. What will be the value of your time when you shift to garage flooring (even when only managing an unperfect employee)? A: Everything is sitting in emotions of your potencial...
