The Importance of Great Business Cards in 2019

As you can probably imagine, starting a business isn’t cheap and could cost you a lot of money from day one. This could make starting a business a headache and a risky financial pursuit if you’re not careful. However, the initial time, money, and investment that goes into your new startup will vary heavily based on what industry you are going into, and if you utilize the power and tools accessible on the internet today. For example, if you’re figuring out how to start a law firm, you need to make a plan that won’t leave you stressed out and broke. The traditional method is to open a nice and fancy office location, hire staff and bring them inhouse, have a ton of paper work/legal documents, and also pay for the transportation of documents and signatures to and from local clients. Again, this is the ‘old way’ of thinking about […]

If Vegan Donuts Are Commonplace, Offer Vegan Cinnamon Rolls

If it’s not one thing, it’s another. A limited number of choices might make us feel like we have to settle for what’s available. But more often these days, our predicament is that making a decision can be quite time-consuming. Typing a phrase or question into a search engine presents us with a number of options, and we want to perform enough research to feel confident that we’re making the best choice — whether we’re looking for an organic nail salon or trying new vegan baked goods. When donuts just won’t do Unlike Sonia’s search for the perfect gluten-free cupcakes, I have a number of go-to places for excellent vegan donuts that all hit the spot when my sweet tooth needs to be satisfied.

The Riches Are in the Niches—The Advantage of SMALL

Pat Flynn: I remember when I was in high school, and just to paint a picture for you, I was the shortest kid in my grade. Even my junior year of high school I wasn’t past five feet tall and I barely passed five feet tall my senior year of high school. I had a growth spurt my sophomore year of college, but going back to high school, unfortunately a lot of my friends liked to play basketball. If you know anything about basketball, the taller you are, the bigger the advantage is. Now, I did play with them because they were my friends, but I hardly got passed the ball. When I had the ball I would take shots and because I never got a lot of practice, I would never make it, so you know, I was always last picked and that sort of thing. But I’ll tell […]

How to Impress and Score Your Next Freelance Writing Client

I have an affinity for service businesses. I love when people: But I don’t love when these driven individuals make a certain mistake that invites unnecessary frustrations into their workdays and weakens their reputations. “Sure! I can do that!” I understand that it’s exciting when a work offer sounds good. So, when a potential client proposes a project to Joe Service Business, he’ll immediately respond with, “Sure! I can do that!” (or another phrase with a similar sentiment) before he finds out everything he needs to know about the project. For example, more information about the project may reveal that he’s not the best person for the job or it’s not actually an assignment he’d like to work on. When you respond to an inquiry and move ahead with a project too quickly, you operate under the assumption that you’ll figure out the details later, as issues arise. But your […]

The 5 Most Important Questions to Consider Before Beginning Your Entrepreneurial Journey

Grit and taking calculated risks are the essentials if you are to achieve anything notable. September 6, 2018 6 min read Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. Every entrepreneur’s journey starts with a story, whether an account of overcoming adversity or an anecdotal moment of inspiration found in an unlikely situation. When one digs deeper, he or she discovers that these stories have one common thread: courage. My entrepreneurial journey began when I took a leap of faith to launch my own public relations brand. Mustering the courage to dive into the unknown wasn’t necessarily a new thing for me. I immigrated to the U.S. as a young Nepali woman to begin my higher education. To do this, I had to leave behind a family and a country torn by civil war. Looking back, I realize that this scary experience fifteen years ago prepared me for my entrepreneurial […]
