EXCEPT for old Dworken, Kotha's bar was deserted when I dropped in shortly after midnight. The ship from Earth was still two days away, and the Martian flagship would get in next morning, with seven hundred passengers for Earth on it. Dworken must have been waiting in Luna City a whole week—at six thousand credits a day. That's as steep to me as it is to you, but money never seemed to worry Dworken. He raised the heavy green lids from his protruding brown eyes as I came in. He waved his tail. "Sit down and join me," he invited,...

There’s no question among business advisors: When you’re establishing,
expanding, or reenergizing a business, the best way to start is by writing
a business plan. The task may seem a little daunting, which is why we bring
this kit to the rescue.
Business Plans Kit For Dummies, 2nd Edition, doesn’t tell you how to proceed;
it shows you how, walking you through the process with step-by-step action
plans, examples, and do-it-yourself forms throughout the book and on the
information-packed CD-ROM. So relax.
Entrepreneurs—and entrepreneurial companies—live or die by the quality of their plans and proposals. Whether it's to get funding for a new product line or business from a client, writing hard-hitting prose that answers essential questions and makes specific requests is an indispensable skill. Entrepreneur, ad man, and writing teacher Dennis Chambers shows how entrepreneurs can persuade people,
We have found the use of the radar — our risk radar — to be a simple
and useful device to allow us to present a snapshot of the top 10 strategic
business risks for a company, a sector or indeed the global economy
as a whole. The radar allows us to show both the scale of the challenge
and its nature.
Many companies spend weeks preparing a sales presentation to a customer, but overlook the necessity of taking the same care when dealing with their bank manager or a potential investor. Banks and investors look for detailed information to accompany an application for funds. Therefore management needs to be able to write effective business plans.
In this booklet we show you how to go about writing a successful business plan not only for these external purposes but also as an important management tool for internal purposes....
After more than a decade of working with various revisions and editions of this book, I
am amazed at the uniform spirit of goodwill and cooperation given me by many
people. Without that spirit, this book would not have seen the light of day or continued
helping people. My first editor, Ralph “Jake” Warner, showed infinite patience in
working with a first-time author. My second editor, Lisa Goldoftas, challenged every
punctuation mark and sentence structure while gracefully deferring to my knowledge
about the subject.
The traditional view of the relationship between business and the arts is
very much a one-way affair: organisations may endorse, fund or publicise
the arts but the arts have nothing to offer from a business perspective. The
Value of Arts for Business challenges this view by showing how the arts,
in the form of Arts-based Initiatives (ABIs), can be used to enhance valuecreation
capacity and boost business performance. The book introduces
and explains three models that show how organisations can successfully
implement and manage ABIs.
The book you just opened is different from most
others on Excel that you might have seen. That’s
because it focuses on a topic that is deeply important
to us all: money.
The novelist Rex Stout once wrote, facetiously,
“The science of accounting has two main branches,
first addition, and second subtraction.” I kept that
in mind when I was casting about for the book’s
theme. I wanted to write a book that would show
people how to maximize profit, the result of combining
those two branches.
While many people in business have strong analytic skills creativity has been undervalued in many organizations. The authors draw attention to creative thinking and action and how this can be used to solve business problems and improve performance. They show how some companies have achieved success as a result of creativity and provide a step by step guide for companies and individuals to become more creative. The book also contains numerous scenarios that encourage the reader to solve problems imaginatively and to apply these creative thoughts to their own business problems....
Everyone is talking about small businesses. In 1993, when
it was allowed in Developing countries, more than 90,000
new firms were registered by individuals. Now, less than
three years later, official figures show that only 40,000 of
them still pay their dues and present annual financial
statements. These firms are called "active" - but this is a
misrepresentation. Only a very small fraction really does
business and produces income.
Over the last 15 years, business history has
exploded as a discipline, while much business
history also was made during the boom economy
of the 1990s. As a result, the need for a business
history encyclopedia has become more important
as a means of chronicling these events and
showing their antecedents, stretching back to
How many of you would agree with Pat’s statement? I think it’s
safe to say that most people have used golf to assist them in
some business opportunity.
The premise of Business Golf is to show you how a simple round
of golf, when planned and played properly, can be one of the most valuable
relationship-building tools you have at your disposal, in a world that
is more competitive than ever before.
Small firms drive economic growth. Research in the OECD countries
consistently shows that job growth in the entrepreneurial sector is substantially
higher than it is among established (corporate) incumbents (Audretsch and
Thurik, 2001). More recently, the international buzz about entrepreneurship
has become even more pronounced with the explosion of new technology, rise
in the availability and use of equity capital and breaking down of economic
and trade barriers.
With over 40% of businesses, on both sides of the Atlantic, either giving up or
failing in their first year, going into business, on your own, is not for the faint
hearted. Let us discuss what startingyour own business means. This report is
not about dissuading you from being your own boss, but showing what
qualities and dedication are needed from you to become a success.
Whether you set out to become wealthy, earn a good living, or ...
I’m building a Cathedral is a Manual that sets out the values, principles and activities for Leadership and Business Development. The idea is to encourage individuals to realise their personal goals and company vision. The front cover shows the site of one of the longest-running building projects of the past two centuries, that of the Sagrada Familia, or Gaudi Cathedral. Antoni Gaudi was one of the most important architects of the Art Nouveau period. Gaudi first
These results have implications for investors that integrate environmental and social data in their
investment decision making process. Given recent evidence that investors across both buy-side (e.g.,
money managers, hedge funds, insurance companies, pension funds) and sell-side companies are paying
attention to environmental and social performance metrics and disclosure (Eccles, Krzus, and Serafeim,
2011), evidence about the performance consequences of a culture of sustainability are particularly
