Why is it so important to define a culture in the early stages of company formation? Because cultures aren't something you can easily back into over time; they're the fertile compounds that foster growth and inspire employees' actions and behaviors. This session with Michael Skok, a serial entrepreneur turned venture capitalist, will help you tackle the hard issue of how to define a culture that can help you encode the values that support standards of excellence and empower and drive teams to collaborate around shared goals. In that vein we will also discuss the importance of having a compelling vision and mission. The team from Salsify is our featured case study and they will share how culture has been established at their company.

Businesses can be very complex organisations with many hundreds or thousands of people working in them in many different roles. In order to manage their resources effectively, businesses must have clear organisational structures in place. Organisational structures include the different relationships between people in an organisation. For example in some cases, an employer might want to have a very formal relationship between people in the organisation in others it might be more relaxed. This happens in every day life too. Think about any organisation you're a part of. Do you call the other people by their first names? Do you call them by their title? What about the other members themselves? Do they call each other 'Mrs D', 'Dr X' or 'Mr M' or do they refer to each other by their first names? How do they refer to the the person leading the organisation? Different levels in a business are referred to as hierarchies. A hierarchy occurs where people are given some sort of title or rank that signifies their importance in the organisation. All businesses have employees working at different levels of responsibility. At the bottom, a business depends on its operatives to produce the products or services. Team leaders often perform the day-to-day management role, with operational managers setting direction and strategy for the business as a whole. The number of employees in each level will depend on the business' organisational structure. It is important to determine who takes responsibility for decision making, who reports to who and who to blame when things mess up (or who gets the pat on the back if things go well!) There are three typical organisational structures. They are known as hierarchical, flat and matrix. A hierarchical structure is typical in large companies where each level of employee reports upwards and each level has a narrow span of control. The downside of this type of structure is that it can often lead to significantly slower communication and decision making. A flat organisational structure has much less levels of hierarchy and wider spans of control. This means employees at each level can communicate with managers more easily and quickly. However, this usually means that workers take more responsibility for decision-making. The benefits of this are that it may encourage a more dedicated and motivated workforce. Typically this type of structure is used in small businesses and start-ups. A benefit of this structure is that it allows the business to change rapidly to respond to the market, customers or competitors. However, this only applies if the staff are well trained and are actually capable of making the changes. Lastly, a matrix structure gathers employees who hold the relevant expertise in order to help the business to meet its goals. The people selected come from different levels and departments within the business. The structure can be used in both hierarchical and flat organisations and are typically used for specific projects. Individual team members may come from different parts of the business, regardless of their usual location in the hierarchy. Obviously once a project is over the matrix will be disbanded.

This is a very complicated world. It’s a very noisy world. And we’re not going to get a chance to get people to remember much about us. No company is! And so, we have to be really clear on what we want them to know about us. Now Apple, fortunately, is one of half-a-dozen best brands in the whole world. Right up there with Nike, Disney, Coke, Sony — it is one of the greats of the greats. Not just in this country, but all around the globe. But even a great brand needs investment and caring if it’s going to retain its relevance and vitality. And the Apple brand has clearly suffered from neglect in this area in the last few years. And we need to bring it back! The way to do that is NOT to talk about speeds and fees. It’s NOT to talk about bits and mega-hertz. It’s NOT to talk about why we are better than Windows. The dairy industry tried for 20 years to convince you that milk was good for you. It’s a lie, but they tried anyway. And the sales were falling. And then they tried “Got milk” and the sales went up. “Got milk” wasn’t even talking about the product. In fact, it focuses on the absence of the product. But the best example of all, and one of the greatest jobs of marketing that the universe has ever seen, is Nike. Remember, Nike sells a commodity. They sell shoes!!! And yet, when you think of Nike you feel something different than a shoe company. In their ads, as you know, they don’t ever talk about the product. They don’t ever tell you about their air soles and why they are better than Reebok’s air soles. What does Nike do in their advertising? They honor great athletes. And they honor great athletics. That’s who they are, that’s what they are about! Apple spends a fortune on advertising — you’d never know it….you’d never know it! So…when I got here, Apple just fired their agency and there was a competition with 23 agencies that…you know…four years from now we would pick one. And we blew that up and we hired Chiat\Day, the ad agency that I was fortunate enough to work with years ago and created some award winning work including the commercial voted the best ad ever made, 1984 (by Advertising Professionals). And…we started working about eight weeks ago, and the question we asked was, “Our customers want to know who is Apple and what is it that we stand for…where do we fit in this world?” And what we’re about isn’t making boxes for people to get their jobs done — although we do that well. We do that better than almost anybody, in some cases. But Apple is about something more than that! Apple at the core…its core value — is that, we believe that people with passion can change the world for the better. That’s what we believe! And we have had the opportunity to work with people like that. We’ve had the opportunity to work with people like you; with software developers, with customers, who have done it. In some big, and some small ways. And we believe that, in this world, people can change it for the better. And that those people who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world are the ones that actually do! And so, what we’re going to do in our first brand marketing campaign in several years, is to get back to that core value! A lot of things have changed. The market is in a total different place than where it was a decade ago. And Apple is totally different — and Apple’s place in it is totally different. And believe me, the products, and the distribution strategy, and the manufacturing are totally different…and we understand that. But values and core values — those things shouldn’t change. The things that Apple believed in at its core, are the same things Apple really stands for today.

Contact Aiden and learn more at www.180lawco.com. [email protected] | 720-379-3425 One question that I get asked quite often, because it’s a really good question, is how the owner of a single-member LLC is supposed to pay him/herself. There are two possible answers to this question, depending on how the LLC is taxed. Unless the LLC elects otherwise, a single-member LLC is considered a “disregarded entity” and all of the income to the LLC is treated as income to the business owner, and is all subject to self-employment tax. So basically, the owner of a single-member LLC can pay himself however and whenever he wants, keeping in mind a few important considerations: 1. Make sure you are prepared to pay taxes. Since the LLC is a disregarded entity, if the business earns $100k but you only “pay” yourself $50k, you are still going to be responsible for paying all of the taxes, including self-employment taxes, on the full $100k. (For simplicity’s sake, I am pretending there are no deductions or anything.) So you need to set aside enough money to make sure you can cover your taxes. 2. The business has to remain adequately capitalized. This means that you need to keep enough money in the business to cover all your overhead, debts, bills, salary for employees, etc. You should also leave some extra “padding” for possibly building up your business, purchasing equipment, and whatever else you may decide to do with your business. In the books, any payments to yourself should be recorded as “Member Distribution” or “Member Withdrawal.” If the LLC elects to be taxed as an S Corporation, on the other hand, you have to be paid a “reasonable” salary. Self-employment taxes will only be paid on that salary rather than on the full amount of profit the business earns. Any money that the business owner takes above that reasonable salary is considered a dividend and won’t be subject to self-employment taxes. To learn more about S Corporations, watch my earlier video What the Heck is an S Corporation at http://youtu.be/i5to7Da3wMw?list=UUNh7tqEn68tf0oOfq4NsFsg If your LLC is not taxed as an S Corp, you don’t need to put yourself on payroll, since those member distributions aren’t treated as normal payroll. If your LLC is taxed as an S Corp, then the salary you earn can be part of your payroll, and any additional dividends will be separate from that. Whether or not you elect to have your LLC taxed as an S Corp and how to handle and record the money that you pay yourself is an important conversation that should be had with your accountant, bookkeeper, & attorney. Doing it the “right” way can help minimize your tax liability and can make your life (and that of your accountant) much easier come tax time. Thumbs up & subscribe if you want more AUIYB! Follow Me!

http://www.driveyoursuccess.com What could be more important than a well-defined and well-researched business plan? Well, most entrepreneurs think that having a business plan is the first thing they must do. Unfortunately, they're wrong. A market feasibility study is the all-important first step. After all, if the market is dying or won't allow your new venture to enter, then why bother with a business plan? No matter how strong your business plan is, if your market isn't willing to give you a chance, or is unhealthy, then you won't get anywhere. This video explains why performing a market feasibility study is so important to successfully starting a new business. It defines the health of the market, the potential for market growth and your chances of succeeding. This video explains how the information you gather through your study can be used to make your business plan that much better.

Dua for starting a Business Starting a Business - This poses a major challenge in attempting to deal with business ethics from a religious perspective. While cultural-specific or country-specific studies are needed, a "linking pin" connecting them may be helpful. For good business. Starting a Business - The Qur'an also praises those who combine faith with knowledge: Starting a Business - "...Allah will raise up to (suitable) ranks (and degrees) those of you who believe and who have been granted knowledge: and Allah is well-acquainted with all you do." [Qur'an, 58:11] For good business. Starting a Business - The term "Islam" is derived from the Arabic root [SLM] which means peace, submission, and acceptance. Religiously, the term means to achieve peace; with Allah [Allah] 1 ; with oneself [inner peace] and with the creation of Allah through submission to Allah; putting one's trust in Him and acceptance of His guidance and injunctions. For good business. Starting a Business - This broad definition explains why Islam is more than a "religion" in the commonly limited meaning, which concerns itself mainly with the spiritual and ritual aspects of life. In fact, the term "religion" is an imperfect translation of the Arabic term "deen" which means literally a way of living. For good business. Starting a Business - "...Say: Are those equal who know and those who do not know? It is those who are endowed with understanding that receive admonition. [Qur'an, 39:9] For good business. Starting a Business - There are two primary sources of normative Islamic teachings. The first and most important source is the Qur'an [commonly misspelled Koran]. Muslims accept the Qur'an as the verbatim word of Allah, revealed to Prophet Muhammad [p] over a period of 22 years [610-632 C.E.]2 and dictated word-for-word by Archangel Gabriel. The second primary source is called "Sunnah" or "Hadeeth", which means the words, actions and approvals of Prophet Muhammad [p]3 For good business. Starting a Business - "Indeed those who are endowed with knowledge fear Allah" [Qur'an, 35:28] For good business. Starting a Business - The growing complexity and diversity of business dealings and of life in general, a legitimate question: what defines a normative Islamic position in respect to a new issue or problem which is not directly addressed in the two primary sources of Islam?. Starting a Business -A built-in mechanism to deal with this is called Ijtihad or the exertion of effort by a learned scholar so as to find answers to new questions or solutions to new problems. In the process of Ijtihad, the scholar is guided by the principles and spirit of Islamic law in arriving at his opinion. For good business. Starting a Business - "For the worst of beasts in the sight of Allah are the deaf and the dumb, those who understand not." [Qur'an, 8:22] For good business. Starting a Business - These principles and norms, however, do not exist in vacuum, apart from the Islamic worldview and the role of ethics in such worldview. At the center of this worldview is belief in and devotion to Allah, who is the source of all bounties and the ultimate authority in defining what is ethical and what is not. This belief is examined in the next section. For good business. Starting a Business - "Conjecture is not substitute for truth." [Qur'an, 53:28] For good business. Flourishing business, very rich, successful business, success in business, good business, wealthy

http://timothy-thomas.com. What is the start up costs and expenses to startup or join a network marketing or mlm business? People constantly ask me "how much does it cost to join a network marketing or mlm company? Well my friends, the questions should really be... "How much money have you spent on school and other things in your life that have not helped you make a great income?" Business startup costs for mlm and network marketing companies varies from company to company. All of them will require you to invest in a starter or welcome package. The total startup costs could range from $25 - $500. Honestly, the companies that have the lowest start up expenses tend to be the weakest network marketing or mlm companies. Here are some reasons why you should not be complaining about network marketing business start up cost. 1. The start up expenses for a network marketing or mlm company is less expensive than trying to start a brick and mortar company. 2. The total start up cost for a network marketing or mlm company is less expensive than buying a business franchise. 3. The startup cost for a network marketing or mlm company is less expensive that trying to start your home based business with all that overhead. Here is a link to some basic information about network marketing or mlm companies Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Multi-level_marketing I currently work with a company the has a $249 total cost to own your own business with a $50 monthly website and virtual office fee. This is like paying rent for your business. You need to have an online presence to make money with a network marketing or mlm program, and this is the total cost to start your own business. I hope my video has shed some light on why you should invest money to join a network marketing or mlm company. At the end of the day, YOU will MAKE THE DECISION to JOIN TODAY and GET STARTED asap before the doors close. I can only accept 25 business partners in my group per month. I only work with serious people that have serious dreams and a hard work ethic. I have no time to drag somebody along. You will want to have a business mindset to GET STARTED with a MONEY MAKING opportunity. My criteria for joining my team. 1. Can you invest at least 2 hours a day to a business? 2. Do you know anything about attraction marketing? 3. Do you know how to make a blog post? 4. Do you understand the importance of having social media accounts? 5. Do you know anything about lead generation email autoresponse systems? 6. Do you own or have access to a video camera? 7. Do you have at least $500 to invest in starting a business? 8. Do you have at least $200 monthly to keep your business up and running? If you answered no to ANY one of these questions, then I must regretfully decline working with you.

www.identifyyourrisk.com (512) 828 - 4200 In an ideal world, you would be able to afford an insurance program that would protect you from any conceivable exposure. But if you're like most startups and cash flow is a huge issue, then you have some critical decisions to make. Make sure that you make educated ones. So, what insurance is essential and what is nice to have? Well that obviously depends on the particulars of your business. But I can tell you that we have to diagnose the problem before we can prescribe a solution. The first step is to start with an assessment of potential threats that includes risks in these areas: - Employees - Third Party Liabilities - Intellectual Property - Contracts - Threats to net income Once the assessment is completed and the exposures are analyzed, you can then make educated decisions that will help answer the following questions about risk: - Which ones pose an immediate threat? - Which are most likely to occur? - Which can be the most damaging? - Which ones should retain or self-insure? - Which can be transferred contractually? - Which ones can be avoided altogether? The good news is that there are affordable solutions, and, for a limited time, you can get a practical risk assessment customized to your business at no charge. Just go to identifyyourrisk.com, answer a few questions, and we'll go to work and provide you with an exposure analysis summary. www.inspireinsurancesolutions.com (512) 828 - 4200

http://www.howtostartanestateagency.co.uk/ An estate agency generally sells and rents commercial or residential properties on behalf of the owners. In most instances they tend to do more than just rent and lease property, they do background checks of potential clients, help in the management of the said properties and also offer general maintenance. Before you embark on this business you should be aware that even though starting an estate agency business may be profitable, rewarding or interesting it is also quite demanding. Just like any other new business, there are certain key areas and points that one must and should consider. First and foremost, because the business involves a lot of interaction with people from diverse backgrounds and social classes; it is important to have good interpersonal skills and be a people's' person. It is also important to set up and rent an office in an appropriate location. Even though the job will involve a lot of site visits, it is important to have a permanent office where clients and potential customers can find you. It should also be noted that it usually takes a while for a new estate agency business to start seeing any income flowing in; this is because the sales process is normally quite long and tedious. One should therefore have some startup capital that can run the company for around six to nine months without relying on expected sales revenues. Studies have shown that an estate agency usually requires a strong marketing campaign which involves placing prominent advertisements in both online and offline media so as to attract clients and make sales. These costs usually form a huge chunk of the initial start up costs and it is therefore very important to identify the correct media platforms to use and come up with an affordable budget to help you achieve these goals. Your clients will expect you to sell or rent out their property very fast, it is imperative that your marketing campaign is spot on. Because you will most likely need to employ new staff members and maybe lease or buy some vehicles, it is important to get qualified employees who are well versed in the industry to help you get off the blocks fast. You and your team should strive to build a strong brand name and know your local market extremely well so as to not only attract new clients but also maintain them as well. Ensure all your staff members have excellent customer care skills and are able to relate well with clients. Finally, for you to succeed in this highly competitive market space you should be honest and truthful with your clients at all times. Failure to do this may lead to your new business losing clients and its credibility in this cut throat but lucrative business. http://www.startinganestateagency.co.uk

How to start a transport company - http://www.transporting1.com/ Say you're given a client from among the 11 business you'll fulfill in this program. You can call her, "Brenda". Brenda lives near you and she's 10 miles far from her consultation. Now that drive will take you between 15 and 20 minutes time; heck, state you catch a train and it takes 30 minutes-- each way. That's an hour big salami. The journey is 20 miles which implies with the ordinary rate across the US (some places it's higher, some it's lower) of $2.50; you simply made $50/hour. Now if you're paying attention you may ask yourself ... After all, even if you just see the doctor for a couple of minutes and arrive to your consultation on time; you've personally experienced long wait times, right? Well, part of your contract with those 11 business will include payment for arranging Brenda ... Think about this. If you like the concept of earning to listen to music on your vehicle stereo, checked out novels or publications, even solve Sudoku puzzles; you've found the ideal opportunity with "Private, Non-Emergency Medical Transportation" (shortened PNEMT), though after you begin doing you could abbreviate it BANK!). The best part is, you can do this without any clinical training or skills. You can do it in your household automobile. When you desire taking only the calls that come when it's best for you and your lifestyle, you can do it.
