We do run into a bit of racism because we are told too take the black lady off of the bag but I refuse at which I can because I raised my own money to launch our business in order to bypass any peer pressure by maintaining full control of your company and what you want it to do for you
Kamau: What are best quick tips for developing a business?
A) Always start with a pen and a writing tablet. Start drafting out your plan, what you will be needing and include the cost.
B) Make sure that you own 100% Shares in your company to avoid anyone setting you up to buy your company from out from under you.
C) Only sell percentage of profit sharing ONLY where they can make a decent profit with a cap on it (meaning buy out).
D) TaKe the time to educate your self in how to run and maintain your own business. Always have a good Certified Public Account.
E) I personally never ever live off of the money from my business I re-invest it as well as I use my personal income from my personal job to invest as well and am still able to pay my personal bills and for the promotions of our beef jerky until the entire nation knows that we exist then the beef jerky sales in the near future will start making more than enough money where I can feel safe to leave my personal job and offer full time Good paying employment with child child care on the premises to my future employees.
Our customers can make this happen!
