What is a Business? Definition: A company or business is any body corporate which engages in trade, commerce, or process of production affecting commerce. What is more, it includes any agency or instrumentality of an organization for the purpose of facilitating trade, business, or production. Within the broader perspective, what is more important is that the term business covers all the facets of a non-profit organization such as a school, university, government or nonprofit organization.
So, what are the characteristics to look for when managing small business? First, we need to define what a small business organizational values are and how to assess these values. There are two types of values – internalized and externalized. Internalized value reflects how values have been developed within a company; while externalized value occurs through external sources or activities such as marketing, advertising, public relations, fund raising, communications, and technology development.
Second, what is a business quality? Quality management refers to strategies, techniques and processes that enable businesses to achieve excellence in every business activity including product quality, service quality, and customer satisfaction. The two concepts are often intertwined and are intertwined with the quality management strategy. For instance, excellence occurs when there is a 20% return on investment, when customers perceive the business to be excellent, and when the business is financially sustainable.
Third, what is a small business structure? A small business structure is usually a limited liability company (LLC). It has one owner and one share of stock or equity. It does not include the use of double-entry Bookkeeping or Management.
How do I choose between the small business structures? Small business structures can either be a sole proprietorship, partnership, corporation, limited liability company (LLC), or partnership. If you have limited resources, it may be more efficient and convenient to operate your own business from home. If you have long experience and expertise in your specific field, it will also be easier to run your own business in comparison with starting up an entirely new business structure. Nevertheless, the most common choice is the sole proprietorship because it is simple, inexpensive, and tax-efficient.
What are some benefits of a sole proprietorship? When operating your own business, you have complete freedom over your personal decisions. You are free to set your own working hours, hire and fire employees, enter into contracts, buy and sell property, and enter into transactions as you like. On the other hand, operating your business as a sole proprietorship results in minimal annual revenue, small expenses, and very limited trading space. As a result, your business loses much of its potential growth.
What are some expansion possibilities when you operate your small business out of your home? While operating your business out of your home will require less financial investment than starting up a new business, there are some expansion possibilities that you may wish to consider. For example, if you already have a portfolio of clientele or a strong customer base, you may want to expand your business by offering services to these clients and customers outside of your main location.
Licensing and experience, however, are not the only expansion possibilities available to you. Some small businesses operate online. If you have experience or training in internet marketing, you may be able to bring your business online. Likewise, if you have experience, training or licensing in computer programming, you may be able to bring your business online. Whatever your experience, training or licensing may be, it is important that you determine how much additional funding will be required in order to make your business viable and grow beyond your current limitations.
