Business Advice


-- Quote of the Day --


“…If you stay on your shore, you will never discover other shores. …Why is it that you want to go into business? ...It is during these times of times of economic changes that we see an increase of self-employed businesses. …You might need to test the waters while you work full or part time. …Don’t wait until everything is just right; it will never be perfect - there will always be challenges and cycles. …You just have to take the step and let go of the fear.”  

~ Victor Kwegyir

Today's quote comes from an interview that aired back on June 9:  From Dream to Self-Employment

In keeping with the topic of "business advice", I'd like to pass on to you a resource that may come in handy one day, especially if your office is relocating, upgrading or remodeling in some way. 

The Furniture Reuse Network is a UK-based organization that may be able to help find a new home and support people in need with your unwanted computer stands, phone stands, desks, chairs and so on. They accept both home and office furniture: www.frn.org.uk

Or, perhaps you might want to inspire your staff to bond as a team and feel good about their workplace through getting involved with a non-profit. Here's one that may interest you:

Oxfam America is a member of Oxfam International, a confederation of 14 like-minded organizations working together and with partners and allies around the world to bring about lasting change. They work directly with communities and seek to influence the powerful to ensure that poor people can improve their lives and livelihoods and have a say in decisions that affect them.
