Investment or funding is a major problem for businessmen and entrepreneurs. For those who are just starting, lack of funds will prevent the business from starting all together. If the business has started, funds are needed to stay afloat.

A sign you need to simplify your goal is by explaining your thoughts to others. If you can’t explain it, you will need to cut down your idea.

  1. Starting simple is the key. This also enables you to remain flexible, to your customers/clients and environment, essentially moving where the money is. The saying “you have to spend money to make money” doesn’t mean the more money you spend, the more you’ll make.

  2. Thanks Kally,

    Another meaningful POST.

    In starting a new business and in working in or managing an existing business; there is not one thing of greater importance than integrity; first for you as an individual; and then as company. Be respected by friends and “foes.”
    Strive in a good and positive way to contribute something; to help someone, in order to “BE” someone.
    Material and monetary “Success” without integrity is meaningless;unfulfilling and misdirected. IMO

    God Bless Kally and keep helping people be better.

  3. I have set-up and run four businesses from scratch. All were successful. All were started without outside in% partner. The key? Tons of very focused hard work and a knack for marketing combined with 100% integrity. When I said I would call someone at 9 AM, that’s when the phone rang; not at 9:30. It’s really that simple.
