How to start your Business

How-to-Start-a-Small-Retail-Business

If I had……………………………………, I would have been a successful entrepreneur

The blank in the title is not a printing error; it is an expression of disappointment and disgust from a large number of people who have not made it as a successful entrepreneur. I have interacted with 5000 startups, professionals and students, of all age and if there is I thing that’s make a difference between a successful and an average company. It’s the never-say die of the entrepreneur.

So what are the things people usually need to fill the blanks?

  • Money
  • Team
  • Office, infrastructures and miscellaneous items

 

 

Money

money

If I had money, I would have grown much faster, but investors do not support my idea-this has been the most frequent complaints as well as reason I have come across. When I ask them, “How many investor have you met and how many banks have you applied for bank loan?” the answer is usually 0! Money does not make a business successful, but it is definitely a very important part of business. So if you feel the need of money, reach out the investor, make a good business plan, and polish your pitch. Reach out of people who believe your idea, and are willing to back you even with a small amount-1-2 lakhs is as important as 1-2 crores. Do not forget that the most important source of cash in your customer- make him happy.

 

Team

Team-1000x500

I recently met an excited young man. Who was little disturbed as his venture was going nowhere. I asked him why, and this is what told me, “if only I could clone myself- I need someone as energetic and passionate as I am,” Wow-you should thank your parents for your birth but can not go back to them to give you another brother or sister like you! Go out, network, meet people, take part in exhibitions, attend business plane competitions, share your vision with friends and ask for acquaintances, post your requirements in Linkedin, or tie up with someone who can do some part of your job-but keep moving. There are few people who also doubt their own abilities. Like finance, marketing etc. for them. I advise them to start working on these areas, and learn the art of selling financial review with CA friend etc. and keep learning regular.

Office, infrastructures and miscellaneous items

I call these the ‘hygiene factors’-the just add to the comfort level of an entrepreneur in their ventures -but do not any real value to customers. Neither does their absence lead to any real issues. Remember, some of the great companies were started in garage- Apple, Hp, Microsoft. Even Facebook, the biggest sensation of internet world, was started in a hostel room. So keep an eye on the big picture without under complaints about what you do not have. It is the pride of creating a solution that the world will use happily, that make a successful entrepreneur- so get down and start up.,

Dear readers a really humble thanks for appreciating me. I always care of my followers. for better understanding or entrepreneur let see these article also

Best Athletes Diet Plan

How Much Carbohydrate is Needed?

Do you know? How much different is an athlete’s diet from any other normal person’s eating habits? How to enhance athletic performance? What is the best diet for an Athlete? Perhaps these questions race through your minds while watching athletes potentially dashing across playing fields or TV shots—be it track events, soccer, football, basketball, cricket, racing, hockey, weightlifting or swimming. Let’s consider a look at how much and how many carbohydrates (A form of energy) an athlete needs to include in the diet every day to stay on top form for peak performance.
clip_image001
Based on scientific research, a healthy adult athlete requires 5 to 7g of carbohydrate per kilogram body weight, while a normal individual requires 7 to 10g of carbohydrate per kg body weight and each gram of carbohydrate produces only 4 units of calories (energy). Such a huge amount of carbohydrate is required by an athlete because it promotes several basic roles in the body such as providing energy for regular working muscles, to the central nervous system (Brain), enhancing the metabolism of fat for production of energy and preventing protein from being utilized for calories (energy). These functions are directly proportional to the top performance of a health athlete.
food sources of Carbohydrates such as grains, fresh fruits, milk and its products. Fresh vegetables contain a very small amount of carbohydrates. Just after digestion carbohydrates enter the blood stream in the form of glucose (energy) and glucose that is not utilized through body, is stored in the form of glycogen in the muscular tissues and liver. During exercise or hard work the blood glucose is utilized first and then only next the glycogen stores are tapped into.
Glucose is the exclusive energy compound for the central nervous system because it fuels our nerve cells. Dizziness, weakness, physical and mental fatigue are experienced when there is a lack of carbohydrate during exercise or hard work because of the low levels of glucose (energy).
clip_image003
However, your body can store only 2000 calories worth of glucose (body fuel) in the form of glycogen and this is the only reason why carbohydrate is known as the limiting fuel in physical performance.
Simple carbohydrates in the diet are for examples of food containing simple sugars are candy, soda, sugar and milk.
clip_image005
Complex carbohydrates in the diet take much longer to be digested in the body, for examples of complex carbohydrates are bread, pasta, grains, grams, fresh fruits and vegetables. The fiber components in these foods are what cause very slow digestion.
How much Carbohydrate is needed Pre, during and Post Workout?
Carbohydrate needs for an individual vary for different sports. An endurance event will need more energy than a short duration event. Type of carbohydrate to be given can be determined by its glycemic index.

What is Glycemic Index (GI)? Low GI Multigrain breads, brown rice, egg, fish, meat, chicken, prunes, figs, milk, most fruits and vegetables except potato, watermelon, grapes
Medium GI Whole wheat, sweet potato
High GI Sugar, chocolate, rice flakes, rice, white rice, potatoes, white bread
Recent Trends in Carbohydrate Requirements for Physical Activity
No doubt that carbohydrates are an essential source of energy for an healthy athlete to perform peak well. There is evidence of the benefits of carbohydrates on exercise (or hard work) lasting longer than 90 minutes. However, some studies and researches have also proved good performance in endurance activity after adapting to a low carbohydrate diet. But if it is a very short duration intense exercise like sprinting, studies and recent researches have shown that performance suffered on a low carbohydrate diet.
Recent studies and researches proved, when planning a diet for an healthy athlete, carbohydrates should be moderated whether in the form of food or sports drinks based on the 5-7g/kg body weight or 7-10g/ kg body weight requirement for adults or the 6-9 g/kg body weight for healthy male children and 3-5.5 g/kg body weight for healthy female children.
clip_image006
It has been proved that carbohydrates provide energy (calories) for day to day activities and also for exercise. You will find a wide range of carbohydrate foods to choose from, depending on the healthy athlete’s needs. While making food choices fiber content, glycemic index, type of sugar and time of consumption must be taken into consideration for the best results on the field.

How is it different from being an employee?

ArticleImage_29009_Feature
The employee’s attitude is “can I” –can I do this, can I go there, can I modify company policies, can I launch a new product, and can I explore new markets? Even our small children are taught to ask in school, “can I go to toilet?’-why should a kid suffer pressures in the name of good manners! The entrepreneur’s attitude is “I CAN”-I can do this I can go there, I can launch product, I can explore new markets! This “I CAN” attitude is what we should teach our kids so they grown up to Tatas, Ambanis and Murthys.

With India’s growing supremacy on the global stages in 21st century. It is the era of an ENTERPRENURE. It is the entrepreneur in the shape of a Narayan Murthy who brings smiles to families of lakes of Indians, in the body of Rattan Tata who makes a Nano to make travel simple, in the size of a kishore Biyani who brings Big Bazaar for families to by stuff of their choice or the color of an Ambani who changes industry. Let us explore the basics of entrepreneur.

Entrepreneurship  is a state of mind- it is not a profession, it is not a business! it is about generating ideas, identifying an opportunity, creating solutions and reaching to customer. It is about creating a difference rather than creating products. When Narayan Murthy decided to start Infosys, he did not to do it to create good software-it was to create the software industry. The first step towards entrepreneurship is to realize and identify your inner potential and strive to achieve it.

Technorati Tags:
There are various type of cupping therapy, including
Dry cupping (suction only)
Wet cupping (combination of suction and controlled medicinal bleeding)
During both types of cupping, a flammable substance such as alcohol, herbs, or paper is placed in a cup and set on fire. As the fire goes out, the cup is placed upside down on the patient’s skin.
As the air inside the cup cools, it creates a vacuum. The causes the skin to rise and redden as blood vessel expands. The cup is generally left in palace for 5 to 10 minutes.
A more modern version of cupping uses a rubber pump to create the vacuum inside the cup. Sometimes practitioners use medical-grade silicone cups. These are pliable enough to be moved from place to place on the skin and produce a message-like effect.
During wet cupping, a mild suction is created using a cup that is left in place for about three minutes. The practitioner then removes the cup and uses a small scalpel to make superficial skin incision. Then he or she performs a second suction to draw out a small quantity of blood.
After the procedure, the site may be covered with an antibiotic ointment and bandage to prevent infection. The skin’s appearance generally returns to normal with in 10 days.
Cupping therapy support believes that wet cupping removes harmful substances and toxins from the body to promote healing.
