How much money do I need to start a business

Doing business is truly great job. But starting a business need 3 resources.
1. Money
2. Mind
3. Mass
Of these money is most important. But hold a minute, this article is about starting a business with no money.
You have an skill and you sell it to someone for few bucks. It's not wrong. But point is, many people need your skill if you sell it to many you can get more few bucks and further more bucks.

Everyone want to do this but many hold the idea back in hope of, perhaps next year will be good, by then I will save more to invest in business. Often many found themself at the same spot after one year, then next year and then next.
Idea of setting an office is really cool. It is truly wonderful when your accounts report you last quarter profits. But to reach to that point you need resources.
If you have an idea of doing business in mind do not hold back.
You don't need money at all to start a business.
You are the best salesperson for your skills. No one else can sale better than you.
Start small, take very first step. Reach out to your potential customers. Offer them your service for a price. Your price could be zero for first customer, your earning could be zero from first customer. But your goal is to get first satisfied customer. When you achieve this goal you will build a sense of confidence. Next you will promote your service in much better way.
And when there are takers money will flow in automatically.
A satisfied client will give you positive reviews and perhaps some references too. If not then too you have one completed work under your belt to showcase in your business portfolio.
Starting small has many benefits:
1. Learning customer psychology
2. No monetary losses
3. Strong network in your market
4. High level of confidence building
5. True knowledge of what customer want
6. Better personal branding
7. Less expenses on advertising when you expand
Do not leave your job for starting business. Indeed first use leverage of available time out of job to get the first client.
First gather momentum in business. Reach to an earning threshold equivalent to your monthly expenses. Then give a relook to whether you need to resign from day job.
If you are starting this way, ideal time to resign from day job is when you have funds for atleast 3 or 6 months expenses in your bank. The more the better.
Going this way is pretty tough, it's very small when you want to share dinner table with Warren Buffet.
But
Small things are made big with right efforts.

10 rules of good parenting

The term parenting sends a shiver down the spine  especially if you live in a nuclear family and going to become a parent; father, mother or guardian. Parenting is not only about raising kids, feeding and sending to school. Indeed parenting is about overall development of a child. Personally I believe, if you do not have kids to raise then too being a grown up adult you are  parenting neighborhood kids in one way or the other.  Kids learn better from surroundings.  Your persona is a reflection of your parents and you are going to transfer that persona to your own kids and the kids near you.

Excellence vs Perfection

There is huge confusion between excellence and perfection. Both are rewarding but...
Perfection has limitations, you can not make anything perfect above 100 marks. This is where either you beat the competition or get beaten. Normally both happens. Excellence is about achieving 100%. You can achieve 100 marks in a given task at that point you may argue that here I achieved full percentage. But analogy says, you have achieved it about the task and not around the task. When you strive to achieve around the task there is no upper limit. For example an student may get 100 out of 100 marks in a given examination does that mean he / she 100 perfect in all those topics around what questions were asked or as that employ that there is no one out there in the world who knows better than the student who have faced an examination. This is why governments take Essay test before selecting you for a given post.

Why landing page is a must for your blog

Convert … Convert … Convert…

If you are not converting your blog traffic, if your audiences are not asking you to write more and if they are not downloading your ebooks, then you are not blogging it right. Without conversion blogging is purposeless.

Blogging is most popular means of saying your words to public, getting attention and generating leads. Often many bloggers fail in converting traffic; sometimes they do not create a landing page or do it very casually. Result; very low level of conversion or none at all. Half of the bloggers are a fail because of purpose less blogging.
