Luister gerus hoe gesels ek oor die finansiële jaareinde vir kleinbesighede.
Budget 2017? Not interested in all the fluffy stuff, what the story is with internal politics or Molefe, quite honestly, not even interested on how it will be spent. What I am interested in, is how it will affect the small business owner and the entrepreneur. If we can sort them out, they will sort our economy out.
So how did #budget2017 go for the entrepreneur? I have 2 points to comment on.
A Financial statement is something that most business owners receive once a year but they don’t really read it because of it being too difficult to understand.
In this insert, I want to speak about Financial statements broken down into its basic form so that every business owner can understand the basic principles of it.
I wish I can get stats on this post and know how many people started reading it without finishing it. My bet is, that most won’t finish it. Because my thoughts will make most people uncomfortable. It’s the shit we don’t want to hear, but so desperately need to hear.
Last year on 31 December, I posted the following on Facebook:
In a recent report by World Wide Worx, they looked at the state of small businesses in South Africa and found that competition was an entrepreneurs greatest challenge when it comes to starting a new business. It was a very interesting finding, as it’s not a factor for most of the other countries.
Why do South Africans see competition as such a big challenge and how can we overcome it? That’s what I want to talk about in this insert: 5 ways you can overcome your competition.
In my previous insert, I spoke about how you can start your own business. I was so surprised with the reaction the viewers had regarding BEE. I received a few messages from people that felt that they can’t start their own business in South Africa because of BEE requirements. Therefore, I decided to speak about BEE and why it doesn’t have such a big influence on small businesses.
For the last few months, I’ve shared advice regarding the business world and everything that creates a successful business. The world of entrepreneurship has never been an easy place and even though I’ve been working with a lot of small businesses the last 10 years, I’ve also built up my own successful businesses. Today I’m speaking about my own lessons and my own path as an entrepreneur.
Everyone dreams of starting their own business, a picture of freedom and a pocket full of money, but that’s unfortunately not always the case. The life of an Entrepreneur consists of hard work, risks, and a lot of failures. If your dream is to become an Entrepreneur, let me share with you how to start your business.
20 years ago, information wasn’t as easily accessible as it is today and registering a patent could still derive a lot of money. Today, Google has changed our lives forever and to start a new business doesn’t necessarily mean a new idea. Today a new business means, how can I make something better, faster and cheaper.
