Choosing to be in business

Entrepreneurship is the in-thing now. Sons and daughters of businessmen have the edge though, as they have been born into their parents’ business and have had close encounter with running their family enterprise, while their parents have been made busy with the affairs of the business, wherein sometimes they are made to help.

For the one who has not been born with a family enterprise, it is more clever for a new graduate however, if he wants to go to business, to learn first about the trade by joining the staff of a company to have a hands-on knowledge, and to have a personal and closer observation of how a chosen business is being managed and actually being run. All of these experiences will then be a useful tool for him when he will be on his own.

Business conferences are a great way to network with other like-minded individuals in your industry. If this is your first time participating, however, you may be intimidated by all there is to see and do. How should you prepare for a brave new world of professional expos? Here are four ideas.

1. Choose Your Events Carefully

There’s no way you’ll be able to attend every single class, lecture, workshop, demonstration, exhibition and training course. Instead of trying to cram as much into your schedule as possible, sign up only for the events that matter to you. Continue Reading →

The high-tech boutique

Dresses ever since I remember have been sewn by dressmakers, who could be a friendly neighbor, or an elder relative or any lady with a talent of sewing. The usual “weapons” (if she were a soldier!) she would have would be a trusty sewing machine, a pair of scissors, some spools of thread, but most of all, she couldn’t live as a dressmaker without a catalog with which the ladies or her customers (“clients” for the high society) would look which style of an attire she chooses.

Enthusiastic singer

Last Sunday, we had a mini gathering here at home. We started out with a community prayer with just five of us, then a simple dinner followed. Afterwards, the fun began. One of our guests, an elderly lady, gamely sang along to some songs via the videoke machine despite not knowing the tune. I admired her guts for being an enthusiastic singer, not minding if she can’t keep up with the melody and timing.

Music loving family

Though both my parents are music lovers, my dad is the one who knows how to play the guitar, and even while away his time with the organ. My mom never had the chance to materialize her wish, when she was still small, to learn how to play the piano.

For us, the children, at least we know how to play the guitar. The trick that did this was the exposure we got. Just having a guitar at home has motivated us to learn how to play the instrument. Then later, as we grew up, especially when we were already in College, we were bought one guitar each.

Our internet café experience

Before, we were into the internet business. We had an internet café that most often catered to students, especially as our location was just a few meters away from two big educational institutions, and along a major highway at that.

It could not be avoided that almost all services related to schooling that used the cyberspace would reach our modest enterprise. This included researches of students, encoding/printing of reports, assignments, or whatever are the likes of these. Continue Reading →

The joy of having a guitar

One inclined to music usually owns a guitar first. It may be a simple and less expensive one, but own a guitar he must, or at least, dream of owning one he does.

Music loud and noisy

When there are celebrations, music is an important consideration. For how can the affair be lively and bubbly if there’s no music? Especially if it’s an event of the youth, expect that it would be a bedlam, with music which is more of a noise than a tune!
