Google Avoid These Common Investing Psychology Traps Various authors have written on psychological or behavioral traps that lead people in the wrong direction with their lives in general. Sometimes, these books touch on financial matters, but that is certainly not their main focus. In this article, the intention is to apply some classic forms of dysfunctional psychology directly to the investment arena. We will take a look at some of the most common traps and how to avoid them. Anchoring Firstly, there is the so-called anchoring trap, which refers to an over-reliance on what one originally thinks. In order to avoid this trap, you need to remain flexible in your thinking, and open to new sources of information and the reality that any company can be here today and gone tomorrow. Sunk Costs The sunk cost trap is just as dangerous. If you clung to stocks that you bought in 1999 at the height of the dot.com boom, you would have had to wait a decade to break even, and that is for non-hi-tech stocks. Be aware, but beware too!
Coggle - CAROLINA ELIZABETH HOYOS JIMENEZ Grow Your Business With Business Incubators Whether you are in the start-up phase or struggling with growth issues, a business incubator could be just what your small business needs. In this article, we'll look at business incubators and what they can do for you. What are Business Incubators?Business incubators are buildings or campuses that early-stage businesses can apply to enter. Business incubators may be private or government run, and most are not-for-profit - but that doesn't necessarily mean that they do not charge. Getting InThe entry requirements for business incubators can vary widely depending on their industry. Once in, a business owner will likely be charged a monthly rent - albeit much lower than the market rate for the space, services and equipment he or she now has access to - and may need to pay additional fees if the space will need to be customized. The AdvantagesBusiness incubators can give entrepreneurs a laundry list of advantages, including:
Información del libro ¡SÍ, PUEDES! Hoy más que nunca, el mundo de la empresa necesita personas con ímpetu y con ganas de comerse el mundo. Personas que, a pesar de los tiempos difíciles en que vivimos y del actual contexto económico, decidan superar las adversidades e intentar conseguir todos aquellos objetivos que se propongan, ya sean dentro de su propia empresa o emprendiendo en solitario.

7 Unconventional Ways Businesses Can Borrow Money When conventional credit markets get tight, individuals and businesses are pushed to seek alternative lenders to obtain financing. Some of these alternative financing sources have been around for a long time, but the 2007-2008 credit crisis spawned some new opportunities for business owners and individuals, as well as some new ways to access them. In this article, we'll uncover the known alternatives (both old and new) and define the benefits, dangers and drawbacks of each. 1. The factor handles the transactions, administers the accounts, conducts credit assessments and handles collections. Once the accounts are paid, the borrower receives the difference between the face value and the reserve. The benefits of factoring include quick access to cash (usually within 10 days) and the fact that with a growing business, more accounts receivable will be coming in. The dangers of factoring can be exacerbated when business owners don't know whom they're dealing with. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7.

How To Keep Your Small Business Afloat During Hard Times If you are a small business owner and sales are plummeting, the future might look bleak. What can you do to survive through stormy economic times? Unfortunately, there is no playbook to follow to "right the ship.” Tip 1: Look at the Big Picture People have a tendency to attack the most obvious problems with vigor and without hesitation. For example, suppose that a small business owner discovers that two employees are consistently making mistakes with inventory that cause certain supplies to be over- or under-stocked. Using the above example, a manager might fire the two error-prone employees, or perhaps even the manager, without a second thought. Taking a top-down approach and understanding the true problems that are holding your business back will help you understand the company's strengths as well as its weaknesses, and prevent change from adversely impacting future sales. Small business owners should have other potential sources of capital lined up as well.

Can't Get A Bank Loan? Turn To Your Neighbor When bank lending slows down, as it did during the 2007-08 financial crisis, people start to have more trouble accessing the credit markets. But that doesn't mean they stop looking for ways to borrow. They just need to look a little harder to find available loans at lower rates. For borrowers and investors alike, the solution a growing number of them are turning to is ... each other. Who Are These "Peers"? 1. Examine the Details P2P websites tout their great interest rates and easy loan process for both borrowers and lenders. Nothing, however, is ever as good as it seems. You should be very careful if you're looking to consolidate loans and lower your interest rate because you could wind up paying a higher aggregate rate. A quick note to remember as a borrower is that these loans are usually based on a three-year repayment plan. Who's Doing the Due Diligence? Below are a few more examples of borrower criteria, although these can vary between networks:
