    7. Reach for the greatest impact – social entrepreneurs are on a mission to transform the world, delivering a message through their products and services. We are being called to leverage the power of technology to reach the greatest possible number of people with our solutions to their problems. This is why as socially responsible business owners, we have no choice but to embrace technological advances, appreciating what is now possible because of social media tools such as Twitter, YouTube, and Facebook, and new platforms such as Skype, iPhones, mobile phone applications, teleconferencing, and online webinars.

    8. Know and care for your customers – most entrepreneurs do not fully understand the problems and needs of their clients and prospects. A conscious e-marketer will invite prospects and clients to participate in surveys that will reveal exactly what they need and want. Your list can then be segmented wisely, and products and services can be tailored to the needs and wants of that specific segment of your list. We recommend www.mysurveyexpert.com as a great resource for your surveys.

    9. Attraction Marketing – when you are clear about your message and become an authority who people respect, you will attract those who are seeking your message. You will become a magnetic force and ideal clients will find and appreciate you.

    10. Become an authority in whatever your passion, vision, and mission may be. Commit to learning about yourself and about your products and services. Take courses, read books, review websites, attend live meetings, join communities, forums, and groups of like-minded persons. In conclusion, you are your greatest asset, and thus you need to grow and learn every day. The more you know about yourself and your business, the more profitable your business will become and the greater the social impact you will make in the world.

    One of the steps you will need to learn as you are growing as an entrepreneur is how to position yourself as an entrepreneur. While this may not seem all that difficult to accomplish, without the proper attitude it can become a bit of a challenge.

    To position oneself as an entrepreneur is as much a matter of mental attitude as anything else. It is about thinking and acting like an entrepreneur. Some would say that you have to eat, breathe, and sleep your business. While this may seem a little over the top, if you are serious about your success it’s not far from the truth.

    In many instances the difference between success and failure comes down to the person’s willingness to do whatever it takes to be successful. That means that you need not only focus on promoting your business, but also in positioning yourself as the leader of that business.

    You need to remember that in the early stages of a business you and your business are the same thing. The people around you will not think of your businesses without thinking of you as well. The pitfall of that attitude is that some new business owners will promote their business during business hours, and then they try to separate themselves from the business when they leave the workplace.

    When you position yourself as an entrepreneur you are approaching the situation with the understanding that a business owner I who and what you are. There is not a real separation when you leave the office; you and your business are still the same.

    Successful business people find themselves setting goals for their business, dreaming about their business, working through issues with the business, and even promoting their business at all hours of the day. Leaving the office just means that they are changing locations, but they are still working on their business. They don’t mind doing it because it is a passion and they love what they are doing.

    You have to understand that when you take on a new client for your business, they are coming not only because of the products and services that your company offers; they are coming because of what you as the owner of the business are offering. If they do not believe you are committed to what you are doing, they will not have the confidence in your business that is necessary. If they believe in you, they will buy into what you are selling.

    If you are truly serious about being successful with your business you will need to learn how to position yourself as an entrepreneur. You need to break free of the mindset of acting like an employee and only working on your business during working hours. You need to learn to promote yourself along with your business. After all, in the beginning stages, you are all that will keep that business alive.

    The typical online entrepreneur is a different species insofar as they generally work alone and within an industry that can be very stressful and demanding. Being your own boss is great however many are prone to second thoughts about this when they find that everything’ is their responsibility! Without physical, or often times, moral support, people working online have to reach deep within themselves for the strength or motivation to get the job done. Obviously those who succeed on the internet have mastered the ‘art form’ of learning how to motivate themselves! Learning how to get motivated however always has its roots in a very strong reason as to ‘why’ it is people are working online! It is the ‘why’ of every entrepreneur that ultimately keeps them moving forward!

    Here are the 3 biggest ‘whys’ entrepreneurs use when learning how to motivate themselves in order to maintain the drive necessary to succeed on the internet.

    Money

    Always a big motivator, money is one of the most ‘popular’ reasons people market on the internet. Whether it is for need or perhaps to expand an already existent ‘offline’ business earning or increasing an income is a powerful and popular force for people to be working online.

    Passion

    Some people have taken advantage of the easy to use and inexpensive internet platform to pursue a personal passion. Whether it is a cause, hobby or perhaps a business idea, if it is fueled by passion there is little doubt that these people will lack motivation.

    Lifestyle

    Most internet businesses involve working online from home or actually anywhere one may choose and this is a very attractive option. In addition, the potential for earning a significant income is very real due to the access you have to a global audience, on a 24/7 basis no less! A lifestyle like this is hard to ignore and even harder to not strongly desire! Even working longer hours is not an issue since you can pick and choose where and when you work!

    As we have spoken about here today the typical online entrepreneur must absolutely posses some strong motivations in order to be successful working online. Due to the ‘isolated’ nature of internet marketing, individuals must learn how to get motivated and stay that way without the help or support of others. For this reason their motivations need to be strong and lasting and 3 of the most common motivations people have for working online are reviewed above. As you can see any of these 3 factors that drive people to succeed on the internet are very strong. It is an absolute must however that the individual has the great ‘desire’ or ‘need’ first or they will not be able to sustain their efforts and achieve success.

    There are three business arrangements in Singapore that have been specifically created for foreign entrepreneurs and business entities planning to have a presence in the country: a subsidiary company, branch office, and representative office.

    These are the basic differences between these business entities for foreign entrepreneurs and investors:

    1. Subsidiary company

    This is probably the most ideal business entity for foreign companies planning to form a Singapore company or expand their presence in the country. This is because this formation provides countless of benefits especially when it comes to tax incentives and limited liability.

    As a separate legal entity from its parent company, a subsidiary company may have a different name and is allowed to conduct any business activities in the country as long as these are legal.

    A foreign company with a subsidiary company enjoys a limited liability, an arrangement in which it is not liable for any losses, liabilities, and debts of its Singapore auxiliary business.

    And because a subsidiary company is incorporated in Singapore, it also enjoys local tax benefits even if it is 100 percent owned by foreign businessmen and entities.

    However, this business setup is required to appoint at least one resident director who may be a Singaporean citizen or holder of EntrePass, Employment Pass, or Permanent Residence Status.
    Meawhile, a subsidiary company may have one to 50 shareholders who may be a foreign or local individual or another business entity. To know more abour subsiday company follow this link:

    2. Branch office

    A branch office, being an extension of its business headquarter, is only allowed to conduct activities performed by its parent company.

    Unlike a subsidiary company, a branch office is not provided with local tax benefits since it is treated as a legal extension of its parent company. And with this arrangement, the headquarter is directly liable for all the losses, debts, and liabilities of its Singapore branch office.

    Meanwhile, it is a legal requirement for a branch office to hire two Singaporean resident agents who will oversee its business operation.

    When it comes to government-imposed disclosure requirements, this business entity may not be appealing for some shareholders since they are also required to submit the audited accounts of their parent company. To know more about branch office, follow this link:

    3. Representative office

    Legally speaking, a representative office is not really a business entity as it is not allowed to engage in any revenue-generating activities.

    A representative office is generally ideal for foreign companies who are not yet sure of the business viability of their services or goods in Singapore and want to conduct an extensive market research before engaging in a full-blown operation. To know more about representative office, follow this link:

    When we talk of management education, we are basically referring to shaping up the students, aimed towards developing their competency and capability either as a manager fit to join an organization and help it to grow or as entrepreneur, to establish and grow ones own business. This capability does not come from possessing a management diploma or degree, but also requires developing in the students the will and skill to contribute for self sustenance and nation building. Presently it is seen, that there is a wide gap existing between the type of management education imparted in MBA colleges and what is there in real life management in business organizations. In order to make management education more realistic and useful for the industry, certain key areas need to be identified. These could be:-

    (a)Benchmarking quality management education to create an enduring quality managers and entrepreneurs.
    (b)Bring in professionalism in management education.
    (c)Adequacy of qualified and competent faculty members, proper infrastructure, support facilities and regular updating of curriculum.

    Benchmarking Quality Management Education

    Benchmarking with the top management colleges inspires an institute to produce quality managers. Management education needs to include knowledge, skills and abilities (KSA) that are needed today and that will be needed tomorrow by the industry. The mission of management education should be to become innovative and creative. The objectives of benchmarking should be to:-
    Make own students employable in industry.
    Moving the institute from academic mode to corporate mode. To achieve these objectives the agenda should be:- (a) To identify the industry expectations of the skill sets required of students. (b)To identify the areas of Total Quality Management (TQM) in management education. (c) To identify the changes required in teachers imparting management education.

    Professionalism in MBA/PGDM Education

    There are many reasons for the wide differences in the quality of management education in different institutes in India. The main reason is the absence of a body that can ensure that the standards set are practiced and retained by all management institutes, like AACSB in USA. We do have an apex body the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE), that is responsible for setting the basic framework, guidelines and standards for quality of business education, there are however many problems when it comes implementation of these standard by MBA colleges and institutes and these problems undermine the effectiveness of these standards. In order install quality in management education in India, the AICTE and MBA colleges / universities in the country should focus on the following issues:-
    Quality of faculty.
    Infrastructure development.
    Accountability of management institutes.
    Values and ethics.
    Role of professional bodies (AIMA, ISTD, etc).

    New ecommerce entrepreneurs can find them confused and confounded by the tax and accounting requirements of their venture. And thats a shame: If someones spotted a great new category and successfully built a web presence, heck, that someone shouldnt find themselves bogged down with the accounting minutia. The entrepreneur should focus on increasing traffic, expanding margins, and growing cash profits.

    With that in mind, I offer up the following tax and accounting tips:

    Tip #1: Dont Incorporate

    A true corporationwhether a C corporation or an S corporationsaddles your business with more complicated tax accounting and a bunch of state filing requirements. You dont want to deal with this redtapeor at least not until youre profitable.

    Instead, operate your business as a sole proprietorship. If youre concerned about legal liability protection, note that you can setup a one-owner limited liability company, or LLC. A one owner LLC is treated as a sole proprietorship for income tax purposes.

    Tip #2: Start Your Business Before Making Investments

    Expenditures you make before youre actually in business-in other words, before youve got a business license and before youre selling or trying to sell your stuffarent very deductible.

    Specifically, you can probably deduct the first $5,000 of these expenses. But any amounts in excess of the $5,000 must be amortized over the next fifteen years.

    What this means is that you want to start your business before you start spending money on advertising, training, web development, accountants and lawyers and so on.

    Tip #3: Automate Your Bookkeeping & Accounting

    By lawand some people dont know thisyoure required to maintain an accounting system that lets you clearly measure your income. As a practical matter, this means you need to use a product like Quicken or QuickBooks.

    But you ought to go one better than simply using desktop accounting software. Make sure that youre taking advantage of online banking and bill payment features which integrate your accounting system with your banking. As much as is possible, for example, you want to be able to move money from PayPal to your bank to QuickBooks simply by typing a few keys or clicking your mouse a few times.

    Tip #4: Hire a Payroll Service Before Hiring Employees

    Many successful ecommerce business owners can run their operations without employees. And if thats true for you, hey, congratulations. If and when you do need employees, however, dont try to handle the payroll yourself. Oursource the payroll to one of the large payroll service bureaus like ADP, Payroll, or QuickBooks.

    These services are expensive. Figure $1000 to $2000 per year. But the services let you avoid the bookkeeping nightmare called payroll and prevent you from getting into payroll tax trouble.

    Tip #5: Consider S Corporation Status After Youre Profitable

    Ive written and talked much about how S corporations save taxpayers money and how the right way to set up an S corporation is first create a limited liability company and then ask the IRS to treat the LLC as an S corporation for tax purposes.

    Enlarge your entrepreneur focus and make visualizations an important part of your new daily routine. Entrepreneur success comes from having a vision, a clear mental picture of exactly what it is that you intend to realize. You have to be able to see it in your mind before you can achieve it. Imagine the outcome that you want, always focus on what you want and not the one you don’t want.

    Visualise with perfect focus. Don’t just think and picture what you want in a unclear way, form the details, the feel, the colour. The more details you can place on it the clearer you will see it and the more real it becomes to you in your mind’s eye. It is without doubt one of the key critical success factors for entrepreneur success.

    Most people if they would like success will generalize much too much. If you would like to have what is called success then you have to be very exact as to what you are calling success. How will you know when you have it? What will it feel like? What will you see and be when you have it? What is your measure for success? What do you need to do to achieve it?

    When you take a photo and it is out of focus that photograph will permanently be hazy and out of focus. The same applies to your visualizations. When you visualise something and fail to put the details in it, it will at all times be a hazy idea without any clarity. Give your brain precise mental pictures of what you would like and your imagination will respond accordingly.

    It is not about living in a dream world, it is making mental pictures of your desired outcomes. The bolder you make your images, giving them colour and making them real to you, then the more powerful you will feel towards them. Whatever you can think and believe you will be able to accomplish.

    Condition yourself to expect your entrepreneur success. Almost all of the limitations that we place on ourselves are the effect of our self images. However we see ourselves, we live our life, so by changing your images you start the process of changing your self beliefs and your expectations.

    Success is a habit, it is the result of developing an attitude. Attitudes are simply habits in the mind. Create your success habit in your mind, spend a few minutes each day and develop your mental picture. It is a critical success factor for your entrepreneur success.

    The Internet brought a radical change in the way we do everything. It has made the world smaller, and has brought people closer together through high speed connection. In fact, the Internet has made us realize that we now live in a global community and that everything we do affects the world around us.

    The Internet not only changed the way we live, but it has changed entrepreneurs’ home businesses too.

    Due to the fact that the Internet has brought the world closer together,every business has the potential for a global market. That means that the Internet has made it possible for entrepreneurs’ home businesses to have customers far away from home.

    In the past “home business” meant that an entrepreneur would have to get customers from his or her immediate community. Your market was limited,but now you can get your enterprise out of the house and into the world.

    No wonder that the big companies of today had to work hard in order to get out of their homes. Many of the today’s big corporations often started as home-based business.

    Many entrepreneurs actually take their business to the Internet,because the Internet helps people shorten the time they have to wait until their business gets off the ground. It helps entrepreneurs’ home businesses get the push it needs to provide a global market. The Internet actually allows you to have the whole world as a target.

    More and more people are opening up on-line businesses because of the simple fact that they get to make money easier this way. Today’s entrepreneurs’ home businesses actually mean that the lucky businessmen actually get to stay at home while they make their cash, because of the Internet.

    Keep in mind that entrepreneurs are the richest people in the world. Professionals, lawyers, doctors, may make a lot of money, executives may have big salaries, but entrepreneurs pay these people for their services. So who do you think is really at the top of the chain?

    With the Internet, you can have all the information you need at your fingertips. This means that you virtually have the whole world at the palm of your hand.

    Entrepreneurs now have access to every piece of information that can affect their business. We all know how attentive one must be of things that one cannot control. The market is a very unpredictable factor in business, with people changing their preferences all the time. Through the Internet, one can be prepared for any possible events.

    A simple search on the Internet allows you to take a closer look at competition. What sets those businesses apart? What is the competition’s weakness? How can you get ahead in the market?

    Because the Internet also allows you access to people, you can get expert advice quickly, therefore you can reach important contacts and make business decisions faster. Entrepreneurs’ home businesses prosper because the Internet allows these businesses to have the best of help.
