Tip #1 – Perfect Your Listening

In this busy modern age, we can often value the art of talking, singing or generally ‘making noise’ far above the near-forgotten art of sincere listening. We spend a lot of our lives listening, so we should learn how to do it properly in business.

Adults spend an average of 70% of their time engaged in some sort of communication, of this an average of 45% is spent listening compared to 30% speaking, 16% reading and 9% writing. (Adler, R. et al. 2001).

Being a good listener can therefore be far more important than whatever you may say, especially when you are listening to someone who really needs to be heard. Listening is way of showing someone else that you value their opinions, feelings, ideas and more. Listening properly is a vital part of building a rapport with someone.

So, how can you listen well? Firstly, show you are listening by looking at the person who is speaking. Use your eyes, ears and mind to focus on the speaker. Put aside whatever you may be doing and do not get distracted.

Fashion is not only about stylish outfits and functional accessories for men and women, but it has spread its arms to reach the world of human’s best friends as well.

Comfort is always the first consideration before purchasing dog apparels, and it can only happen when you get the proper measurements. Especially when buying pet clothes online, where you cannot have your dogs try them first, it is essential to measure the pet’s dimension thoroughly. Here is how to do it.

With the growth of big box stores and online shopping, it can seem that smaller, local businesses are fighting an uphill battle. However, in reality there are many things local retailers offer that the larger corporations cannot.

The greatest advantage of doing business locally is personalized service. You can get to know the store owner and employees by name. With continued business, you will often be greeted by name when entering their business. This develops a relationship that means more than just making a purchase. We all want a personal touch and to be known by others. It makes us feel special. The greeters at the big box stores can’t duplicate that personal touch.

Local businesses thrive by building relationships with their customers. When they know you personally, they want to help you, and not just so they can sell their product. They genuinely want you to be satisfied with your purchase. Also, satisfied customers will be repeat customers.

In addition to making their customers feel special, local retailers can provide personalized merchandise. Even box stores can’t stock every brand or type of product. However, most local retailers will special order what you need. Many box stores won’t do that.

Local retailers also have

Outsource Some Of The Jobs

If you’ve heard of outsourcing, you’ll know it’s a great way to save time and in some instances money. Outsourcing is how many companies are able to compete on an international market. Outsourcing provides various options such as cheaper production methods without having to raise prices and it is a brilliant way that you can shift some parts of your company to another. Not only can it save costs in the long run but it can free up some of your time. Take marketing as an example. If you allow a marketing agency to run your marketing completely, you won’t have to worry about making sure your business is in the limelight. You can let someone else focus on that. Or, how about logistics. Some companies waste a fortune on arranging the transportation of their products in house. In fact, they would be far better off outsourcing this job to a specialist company.

Use The Available Software

Tip #1: Check The Wording On Those Job Advertisements & Applications

So you want to hire a recent graduate? That’s great! But you can’t say that. Here are some things you can put in your job advertisement if you so desperately want a “young” person.

Set a salary range balanced with the duties of the position.
Use the phrase “entry-level position” instead of “seeking a recent college grad” to signal that this is not a high-paying job.
Ask people to “refer friends and colleagues” without specifying an age range.
But let’s remember: Just like race, gender and religion, age should not factor into the hiring process. Instead, you should focus on ability, merit, skills, qualifications, education and experience that are tied to the requirements of the job.

And pretty please – do not have a line asking for the candidate’s age on the application. Delete that right now!

Tip #2: Be Careful What You Say In The Pre-Screen Interview or in the Rejection Call

Do not make offensive remarks about someone’s age that could lead to discrimination or harassment. Just check yourself before saying the first thing that comes to your mind.

Here are some good ones to avoid:

01. November 2015 · Comments Off on 5 tips to get your business ready for year end · Categories: business

Get renewals in order

Companies often have several contracts in place and of course, they all tend to expire when the year ends. Business owners need to check the deadline for these agreements and make sure all necessary renewals are taken care of in a timely manner. Examples may include trademark, employee, property and domain name commitments. If entrepreneurs fail to extend these contracts, their enterprises could lose valuable workers, as well as intellectual property. These agreements often take a fair amount of preparatory work so businesses should make sure not to wait too long to address their renewal needs.

Prepare tax documentation
The fiscal year ends when Dec. 31 rolls around, so entrepreneurs need to start researching their tax requirements and filing needs. Employers should collect all receipts and other documents, reconcile bank transactions and distribute the necessary employee forms, according to Entrepreneur. This process is also a good time for business owners to take a look back on yearly payments and search for expenses that could be cut in the next year for cost-savings. Companies can use this research to plan their budget for the following year.

Gauge employee need
It’s common for the beginning of the year to be a

Your company is running smoothly enough, but you know things could be better. Sometimes, a project gets hung up a few days too long, or meetings that once felt productive and useful now seem to drag on for hours. It can feel like wheels spinning in the mud, and it’s hard to get that traction back.

How can you fix these kinds of issues? By focusing on improving the efficiency of your business. I asked members of the Young Entrepreneur Council for their tips on how they keep their businesses running efficiently, which in turn helps them be more productive.

1. Automate whatever tasks you can

Whether it be sending out pay stubs to employees or sending receipts to vendors, automate whatever you can. “Business automation is not just a luxury; it is a necessity in today’s competitive environment,” says Sathvik Tantry of FormSwift. “Automating monotonous tasks saves your employees time and allows them to do more productive tasks that require critical thinking or a human touch.”

Sathvik adds that while it might be pricier to implement automated processes in the beginning, in the long run it will cut costs, as well as increase business efficiency.

2. Encourage your employees to chat face-to-face

While sending a
