Are You Guilty?
As a business owner and entrepreneur, we are responsible for many, if not all, facets of our businesses when we first get them underway. We act as the book keeper, the administrator and the operations guy. And we need to, budgets are tight, you need to plan every element of your business, you need to know what it is exactly that is happening, so you keep tight hold of the reins! But as the business grows, and the money situation improves, you continue to hold tightly to your baby! Feeling guilty yet?
We have all done it. Being a business owner and an entrepreneur means that your role is exactly that, a business owner. Be the head of the organisation not an oar in it.
Have You ever Been Caught Out By the Fine print?
Do you receive business opportunity offers in the mail? And if so, do you ever actually read the fine print?
If you are like me, then you probably receive several pieces of direct mail in the post every week. And like me, and probably many pother people you simply chuck it in the bin. But every now and again, something catches your eye, and you open the envelope and actually read the sales letter, or maybe just the pertinent and salient sections of the sales letter.
You get to the end and you are truly intrigued, “How much?” you say out loud to your self, thinking this is a bargain that is too good to be true,
Apprenticeships Perception is Improving
If you are a parent, you know what I mean when I talk about your child’s future. I have two kids and believe me, my wife and I spend a vast amount of time, not only discussing career and future opportunities with our kids but we are actively searching them out. We want to make sure that our children enjoy endless opportunities when it comes to career choices.
But we also want to make sure that they eventually make up their own minds and choose to do something that fills them with passion and drives them to get up in the morning. Many people are blessed and know exactly what they want to do from an early age,
We are once again at that time! It is the changing of the guard, the turning of the clocks, as we once again head into a new year. Whew, 2013 has certainly sped past. It feels like only yesterday when we were celebrating the 2013 New Year!
Well, I just want to say Happy New Year to one and all, I wish you all the success in the world, may your 2014 be your most profitable year ever, both in terms of business and personal success.
There is no time like the present to start thinking about the future, planning your goals and objectives and working out your strategy for the coming 30, 60 and 90 days. Plan out the next 180 days as well,
I really do love my rugby, I am a South African Springbok supporter and proud of it. And as a Springbok supporter, i have to say that we have had a very good run this year, losing only two games out of the whole year, and both those losses were to New Zealand in the Rugby Championship. Most recently, yesterday in fact we played the last game of the Autumn Series against France at the Stade de France in Paris, where the Springboks won the game by 19 points to 10.
JP Pieterse was the first to score, having charged down an attempted clearance kick, he managed to get to the ball before any defender to put SA up by 1 try to nil,
