The Importance of Cash Flow
Whether you are running a business or managing the household finances, cash flow is critical. The difference between cash coming in and cash going out in any given period of time is the net cash flow. If it is positive, your cash balances will increase and if it is negative, your cash balances will decrease.
The Impact of Online Reputation Management in the Business Field
In today’s highly competitive business field, reaching the target audience through the information superhighway has become the goal of many companies. Because many are turning to the Internet to know the latest fashion trend, news, and other information, the said innovative medium gives business firms the chance to build a strong online branding.
A small business will only grow when you let go
The X-Factor behind every great business is a combination of great leadership and great people, and neither can exist in isolation to the other. Most small businesses never get off the ground because their owners don’t know how to let go.
Reasons Why Companies Should Invest in Background Checks
Nowadays, background checks that are performed by professional companies have become essential for both start up and established companies. This is because the two entities can greatly benefit from their services. In fact, they have become exceptional investments for those who want to fully utilize the success potential of their company. Below are some of the reasons why.
Is your business prepared for the unexpected?
You hear of it all the time. Curve balls thrown from left field. Unexpected. No ducking, no diving. No avoiding. But it’s not going to happen to your business, right? Don’t believe it. It could.
Your Mission is to Know Why Your Organization Exists! Do You Accept?
Unless you are the parent of a young child who has asked the question a million times, the one question we should be able to answer is “Why?” More specifically, “Why does our organization exist?” I have been thinking about mission and vision and the future quite a bit recently. Because the external environment is so unstable, most of us are doing what we need to do to stay viable. We try to search for growth opportunities. We think about the products and services we offer, we might think about what our customer value proposition is, but we rarely think about “why” we exist.
Topshop no longer want me as a customer – and that’s not a bad thing
A few years ago, news that Topshop was opening in Australia brought tears of joy to fashion shoppers around the country. I may have shed a few myself. The English fashion retailer is like a rite of passage for any female in London. An institution, like Zara (already in Australia) and H&M (coming soon) it’s one of those staple stores you buy from on your Big OE (overseas experience), wherever in the world you choose to go.
Could the cloud save your company money?
There’s a lot of hype surrounding cloud computing systems these days, but the real question is, can it actually save your company money? Simply put, yes, but retrieving the full benefits of cloud storage can be a complex issue. Cloud storage could lower your IT expenses dramatically if your company leverages its power effectively.
Most companies switching to cloud storage do initially save a great deal of money by not having to maintain servers, which makes it an attractive option. There is enough evidence to suggest that although the short-term gains of converting to cloud-based storage systems are still unfolding, long-term gains are substantial.
Retiring Early
It wasn’t so long ago that most people had an expectation of retiring completely from the work force the day they became eligible for NZ Superannuation. These days, more people are choosing to reduce their hours rather than stop working altogether, sometimes starting this process well before official retirement age. While many dream of retiring completely at an early age, only a few are able to make this a reality.
How to Plan your Investment Portfolio
Whether you have a small KiwiSaver balance or a huge fortune, it is important to plan your investment portfolio so as to get the right balance between risk and return. Low risk generally means low returns and, conversely, high returns usually imply high risk. Being too conservative with your investment portfolio can lead to disappointing returns, while being too aggressive may result in losses you can’t afford.
The future of business communication through technology tools
Technology has grown tremendously over recent years. With it come a lot of opportunities and challenges alike. Of great importance is the way it has revolutionised the ways businesses conduct businesses with each other. There are several online communication tools most of which are free. iTrust has observed a few of which are in great use in today’s business world. Top in the list is the use of email services to communicate. Several email service providers such as Microsoft, yahoo and Google offer free email services.
