Overtime, or time worked beyond a specified number of hours in a week by hourly, non-exempt employees, can wreak havoc on the operating budget of a small business. Pay for any hours worked as overtime are paid at a higher rate than regular hours. While there may be times when overtime is necessary and cost-effective, overtime pay can begin to drain your bottom line if not managed correctly.

Startups or SMEs: Which One Should You Choose

There are quite a few differences between startups and SMEs. The primary difference is how they are funded and whom the funds are given too. The guidelines given by the Government of India determines how the classification between startups and SMEs are done. Based on these classifications the funding, benefits, and exemptions are also allocated.
Be it a startup founder or a small and medium sized business enterprise (SME) owner, often both experience the same hiccups and growth curves while setting up their business. In terms of their investment, or the lack of receiving corporate funding the stories narrated by the founders of a startup or an SME is often quite similar. While the experience in starting the business might be similar but the process of the funding mechanism, the journey from the idea of getting the operation commercial is quite different.

Guerilla Marketing

The biggest reason why most new business startups fail today can be attributed to lack of marketing. No matter how great your product or service is, if you don’t promote your business, you won’t have customers. Fortunately, this doesn’t have to be expensive, when you’re just starting out on the entrepreneurial path. An excellent book I recommend is “Guerilla Marketing for Free” by Jay Conrad Levinson.

The Power Of Self Discipline

Introduction My friend Kevin is one of the smartest people I know, hands down. Nobody even comes close. I went to a pretty good, highly ranked university in California. In my close circle of friends, Kevin outshone everybody else. It's as if he can figure out complicated math equations at the back of his head. In fact, one time, we were talking about the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle while eating pizza. There I was, completely stumped about this theory, and my friend Kevin broke it down in between bites of a slice pizza. That's how brilliant he was and still is. Kevin was so sharp that he only needed to show up in class once, and that is to take roll so that the professor doesn't drop him on the first day, and he’d refuse to go to the class ever again. When exam time rolls around, you can count on Kevin to get at least an A. He did this like clockwork. In fact, in many cases, he got awards and honors and he didn't even have to show up for the lectures. I remember lau…
