5 Wise Thoughts to Beef Up Your Small Business to Success | PawnHero

You probably come to wonder how these small entrepreneurs gone from nay to yay. But it’s really no secret when you ask them how they managed to climb the ladder of success. Every businessman can tell a tale of wise thoughts to guide you from a whiny start-up to a bad ass key player in the market.

Coming from a business-oriented culture, here are some good ole’ wise tips that you need to know to maximize the potentials of your small business and come through booming in no time.

1) Be the master of your own game.

Surely, it’s the number one rule when starting or having a small business, always do business that you, as the business owner or partner, know how to handle. A business where you lead in and a business which you love doing is the best business to do. For instance, if cooking or  baking is up in your alley, pretty sure the restaurant will be kicking in no time, and then you may hire people to assist you or contribute for you.

2) Create meaningful connections.

Everyone is your best friend when you’re a businessman, especially for a small and start-up business. You treat everyone your favorite customer and mostly the first few customers are people you know. Impress them and they refer to you more prospects. It is also a good idea to join organizations with like-minded businessmen and create a network to give you edge in the marketplace.

3) Know your market.

This is another factor to put your small business ahead of the a-game. Getting the right location, identifying the type of customers you are catering to, and filling up the void in their needs pave the way for a successful business.

4) Study your competition.

That’s the great thing about having a business here in the Philippines, it’s a free market and pure competition is always the lovechild of capitalism. It’s a really competitive market, and you have to offer something unique, so check out what’s cooking at the other side of the fence then figure out how you can stand out from the rest. There’s nothing really bad checking your competition out, after all, business is business.

5) Go where the people go.

As a small and fresh  business, reaching out to your market would be an ideal marketing strategy before even having people to go find you. There are so many ways to do such; you can either set-up an online presence, attend events that caters to young entrepreneurs where they connect to their potential clients such as getting your business to join business expos, and the like. It all boils down to creating awareness of your products and services.

Now whenever you’re starting a business or a beginner in the game, it’s nice to ponder on these thoughts and strategize your plans more effectively. So  any cash can come in handy to build those dreams into reality. If cash is the problem, no worries!  Pawnhero is the superman to your piggy bank. Just download the really cool and easy app or visit the PawnHero website and everything is just at the tip of fingertips. So go forth and start growing your business.

What are My Other Capital Options for Growing my Business?

2

Capital is the lifeblood of any business venture. If you are planning to expand your business, you will need capital and one of the most common options is a bank business loan. However, there are alternatives that you can explore, such as:

Friends and Family

They are easily the first people that you can turn to if you need additional funding. Inviting them to invest in your company is a practical option to traditional forms of financing. It has its advantages including minimal (or none at all) interest payments and avoiding the hassle of bank contracts.

Approach them with a solid business plan and maintain constant communication with them regarding the progress of the business. This maintains the trust and relationship you have.  With the understanding that their money may not be returned because, in most cases, they are investing in YOU, not your business. Commonly, this kind of capital acquisition does not have any strings attached, but when your business succeeds, a reward to your “investors” would be a good gesture.


1
Crowd Funding

This involves raising funds from a large number of people. These days, it is commonly done online. Depending on the terms you’ll set, funds can either be considered as donations, loans, or investments. Your “backers” contribute a fixed amount to the business for which they will receive a reward. Crowd funding has fewer restrictions compared to bank loans and is ideal for a business that is in its early stages or if you don’t qualify for a bank loan.

Angel Investors

Usually, angel investors include affluent individuals or groups. Unlike pooling funds from family or friends without any strings attached, angel funders (as angel investors are commonly called) provide capital in exchange for convertible debt or ownership equity. Tapping the right investor has got to do with proper timing and leveraging the right contacts. They do their due diligence on your business and if it meets their requirements, they will schedule a meeting to get to know you and your business more.

Micro Loans

These are small loans given to entrepreneurs who have little to almost no collateral. Often, it has restrictions on what you can spend your money on—either working capital, equipment, or operation costs. Interest rates vary depending on the size and duration of the loan. Most micro-lenders require their borrowers to undergo business training and planning seminars before releasing the loan.

Business Loans from Lending Companies

Businesses that do not qualify for a bank loan can try a lending company that specializes in small business loans. Oftentimes, these companies have fewer requirements and release funds faster compared to banks. Moreover, lending companies may have shorter payment terms.

In Summary:

Aside from a bank loan, there are other ways to acquire business capital. You just need to figure out which alternative will work best for your business. Consider the pros and cons of each option carefully so that you can optimize your choice.

BUZZ! How Much Is The Monetary Prize Of Miss Universe 2015?

1While watching Miss Universe, there are a few thoughts that will run through the average person’s mind. “How are those headdresses not giving everyone a giant migraine?” “How many crunches do you think I need to do a day to get Venezuela’s abs?” And most importantly, “What do these women even win?” After all, if I’m expected to craft a ridiculous outfit based on my heritage, give up cheeseburgers for what is probably months, and prance around on stage in a bikini in front of millions, I definitely want an awesome prize. Unfortunately, the actual package these women are offered is nowhere near what they deserve for their hard work. Although prizes from the pageant’s sponsors, like Chi, are typically included, the main Miss Universe prize boils down to handing Miss Universe a full time job. And, in my opinion, not a very good one.

2

According to the organization itself, here’s how it goes:

 

Millions of viewers from around the world tune-in each year to see who will win the coveted crown and have the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to serve as an icon for women across the globe. During their reign, these women are given the tools to be personally and professionally enriched through work with the organization helping to cultivate their personal career goals, humanitarian fellowship and a voice to affect positive change in the world.

Miss Universe, Miss USA and Miss Teen USA are immediately relocated to New York City where they work closely with their respective charitable alliances. Although these respective roles involve long hours and hard work, professional relationships are gained while traveling extensively as a goodwill ambassador on behalf of the organization. Titleholders have gone on to high-profile careers in government, business, finance, broadcasting, as well as film and television. The Miss Universe Organization continues to set the bar for beauty pageants of its kind, and will continue to spotlight the most accomplished women for generations to come.

1

The living in New York rent free for a year thing is pretty cool, and it definitely sounds like a big resume booster, but, um… the long hours and the hard work? Haven’t they been doing this in preparation to compete in this pageant? It would seem to me that the best possible prize you could give a Miss Universe contestant is a long vacation.

The pageant hasn’t been too forthcoming about its offerings for 2015, but we do already know that it includes a cash prize of $20k, essentially saying that a lifetime of doing pageants, prepping, and winning what’s one of the highest honors in the pageant world is worth less than a year’s living wage. Um, Miss Universe? You might want to work on that before next year.

Why Invest In A Single Premium VUL vs Mutual Fund and UITF by Nick Raquel

You have at least P500,000.00 in your bank deposit account and are planning to invest it in an investment that would help you make your money work for you. You were brought to several options, and you have ended up choosing between a Single Premium VUL, a Mutual Fund, or a UITF.

2

Now, you’re confused.

First off, the listed options are all pooled funds managed by professionals called fund managers. In investing in either of the three, you will be asked whether you’ll want to invest your money in an Equity Fund, a Bond Fund, or a Balanced Fund.

They are the same in almost all aspects. Their difference lies on the structural aspect. Single Premium VULs are offered by insurance companies, thus, are regulated by the Insurance Commission (IC).

Unit Investment Trust Fund, popularly referred to as UITF, are offered by banks and managed by their trust department. The regulatory body is the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP).

Mutual Funds, on the other hand, are managed by Investment Companies and are regulated by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

I know, stating those differences doesn’t bring up any clarity in your decision making. Now, let’s talk about benefits.

BENEFITS OF INVESTING IN SINGLE PREMIUM VULS OVER MUTUAL FUNDS AND UITF.

The truth is, there’s really not much difference between a mutual fund and UITF in terms of benefit. For discussion purposes we’ll just compare Mutual Funds and Single Premium VULs.

Allow me to use Sun Life’s Maxilink One as a sample for Single Premium VUL, and Sun Life’s Prosperity Fund for Mutual Fund.

Here’s the situation. You have P500,000.00 to invest in a 10 year time frame. You are inclined to investing in an Equity Fund, you’re just not quite sure whether to choose a Mutual Fund (or UITF) or a Single Premium VUL.

Now, you decided to look at the numbers.

2

Let’s assume that in both funds, the average annual rate of return is 10%. Both funds, Mutual Fund and Single Premium VUL, uses a backend fee system of 5%, diminishing by 1% yearly (If investment is redeemed in the first year, charge is 5%, if on second year, 4%, and so on and so forth. Redemption of investment after the 5th year no longer have a redemption charge.)

INVESTING IN MUTUAL FUNDS

 
YEAR FUND VALUES
1 550,000
2 605,000
3 665,500
4 732,050
5 805,255
6 885,781
7 974,359
8 1,071,794
9 1,178,974
10 1,296,871

Projected fund value of the mutual fund investment after 10 years is P1,296,871. Mutual Funds are very flexible that you can withdraw your investment anytime without being bounded by holding period. However, there are sanctions for early redemption.

2

INVESTING IN SINGLE PREMIUM VUL

 
YEAR CHARGES FUND VALUES
1 266 548,615
2 168 602,146
3 137 660,995
4 102 725,608
5 61 796,537
6 18 874,399
7 959,872
8 1,053,700
9 1,156,700
10 1,289,986

At year 10, the projected Fund Value for a Single Premium VUL is P1,289,986.00. The difference of P6,885.23 to the fund value of Mutual Fund is attributable to the insurance charges for the Single Premium VUL. Investment benefits are identical for Mutual Funds and Single Premium VUL.

Looking at the projected 10 year fund value, you might be concluding that it’s best to invest in mutual funds because it’s higher than Single Premium VUL by P6,885.23.

BENEFITS OF A SINGLE PREMIUM VUL OVER MUTUAL FUNDS, UITF, BANK DEPOSITS, AND REAL ESTATE INVESTMENTS

It is an insurance product. Thus, the minuscule difference of P6,885.23 is really very immaterial compared to the benefits it could provide to the investor (or beneficiaries of investors).

I. Minimum Death Benefit. The death benefit for a Single Premium VUL is then higher of 125% of Single Premium or the Fund Value. In our illustration, it is the higher of P625,000 (P500,000 x 125%) or the current Fund Value of the investment.

This means that in the event a policyholder (investor of a Single Premium VUL) dies while the fund value of his investment is lower than P625,000, his beneficiaries will still receive the minimum death benefit of P625,000.

Say the fund value of the invested P500,000 at the time of death is P400,000 (market declined significantly), the beneficiaries will still be receiving the GUARANTEED minimum death benefit of P625,000 (as long as no withdrawal was made in the fund).

Or lets say the fund value at the time of death is P800,000 (market rises significantly), the beneficiaries will be receiving P800,000, which is higher compared to the minimum death benefit.

In case of a Mutual Fund or UITF, the people left behind will receive only the fund value, regardless if it is higher or lower the the amount invested.

II. Liquidity upon death. While all other assets (investments including Mutual Funds, Stocks, Cash Deposits, and Real Estate) will be frozen by BIR until the appropriate taxes are paid, investment in a Single Premium VUL are readily available to your loved ones. The reason behind this is that Single Premium VUL is still an insurance product.

If you have defined an irrevocable beneficiary, your investment becomes tax exempt (tax-free).

1

THE BOTTOM LINE AND FINAL RECOMMENDATION

On a more holistic financial planning perspective, I am recommending a Single Premium VUL over investing in Mutual Funds and UITF. It is a great tool to use in planning your Estate while having the ability to enjoy your investments while the investor is still alive, contrary to other insurance products wherein the benefit focuses upon death, including a Regular Pay VUL in it’s infancy years.

The only barrier to entry in using a Single Pay VUL is its price point – you’ll be needing a much higher initial investment compared to a Mutual Fund wherein you could start with just P5,000.

Here is my recommendation. If you have the funds and are thinking to invest in a managed fund, then go for a Single Premium VUL. Period. (Well, unless you are already FULLY INSURED)

VIRAL : Top 3 Tips On How Not To Die Poor In The Philippines

Mabuhay Filipino Thinkers!

In this article, we are going to share with you the “Top 3 Tips On How Not To Die Poor In The Philippines”.  The title is strong and don’t worry, it was really intended to be that way. We are sure that like the 90% of the Filipinos out there you are also scared of dying too soon or living too long without any credible financial capacity either for the purpose of settling your medical bills or as “pamana/inheritance” to your heirs and family members.

So, let’s go! Read,re-read and take action!

#1 HAVE AN EMPOWERING FINANCIAL GOAL –   We put it in #1 for a simple reason, we need to know the “finish line” of our race, we need a point of validation. However, you need to make sure that your goal should be directly relevant to your financial position and it will empower you enough to reach your other life goals. Why? Imagine this, you can be the most intelligent lawyer in the Metro Manila but all your cases are pro-bono ( free of charge ). How can you survive then? Always remember that in order to be financially sustainable one should have a credible source of income. You will only have one life, do you want it to be a financially poor life? Of course not! Always remember, money is not everything but life without money is often times unhappy. Trust us, just make a financial goal and do it on a way that is time bounded i.e. “I want to have PHP 10,000,000.00 when I reach 30, on top of a monthly income amounting to PHP 500,000.00 a month”.

1.jpg

#2 TALK TO A CREDIBLE AND AN APPROACHABLE FINANCIAL WEALTH ADVISOR/PLANNER ON HOW TO ACHIEVE YOUR FINANCIAL GOAL  –  You are reading it right, not all Financial Wealth Advisors are the same. In the end, it will go down to the above average level of attention and commitment they are willing to share with you and towards  your family’s financial goal. A trained Financial Wealth Advisor /Planner should assist you to organize your finances, retire debts,increase your revenue/income streams and introduce you to credible financial investment vehicles on which you can maximize the current value of your money. My piece of advice, pick someone whom you will not be shy or intimidated to share your goals may it be running for the Presidency of the Philippines or saving for a Jollibee business franchise.

1

#3 CREATE A PLAN B, MAKE A RETIREMENT PLAN –  Okay, so you are done having a financial goal and it is impressive. You are also done talking to all the right people who can empower you on reaching these  goals but what if you fail hard? What if you got bankrupt at the age of 60 years old? There are a lot of investment vehicles that can empower you to have a backup plan in any case that things may not go well in accordance to your plan. Probably, it is about time to google and introduce yourself to a Variable Universal Life (VUL) Insurance that may fit your current financial capacity and future plans. There are VUL plans on which you will just set aside an investment worth  PHP 10,000 a month for 180 months or 15 years and you can enjoy numerous benefits like an insurance coverage for accidents and death, critical illness provision that in the event you will be diagnosed with a critical illness  indicated in your plan  you can get more than PHP 1,000,000.00 in lump sum cash and still be able to secure around PHP 3,000,000.00* after 15 years or 180 months on top of a guaranteed PHP 1,000,000.00 death benefit since day 1 of your first cleared payment with your VUL plan. Not bad, right?
2
Total cost : PHP 1,800,000.00 in 180 months or 15 years yet you are covered from the first day that your contract was processed and approved on top of  a bigger chance of getting more than PHP 3,000,000.00* in return after 15 years.

*Subject to future equity market conditions, computed at a conservative rate of 10% return of investment per annum in 15 years or 180 months including the premium charges et al.

OP-ED : Top 2 Reasons Why The Philippine Style Of Campaigning Is Making Us More Stupid!

Letter from the EIC of Think Philippines!

Mabuhay Filipino Thinkers!

With our aspiration to maximize the reach of this Opinion-Editorial, we would like to compose our thoughts in English and Filipino language.

We believe that the best way to make this country great again isn’t by having the right politicians alone but we should also put an emphasis on having the right information for the electorate’s reference.

We never give up to the Filipino voters! Walang #bobotante sa Pilipinas, misinformed or worse uninformed lang.

Enjoy reading!

MIGO 4:28pm / October 6, 2015

1)  LACK OF REPUTABLE DEBATES AND FORUMS. Without reputable debates and forums, we are just an electorate voting over the best product packaged by the best marketing genius money can buy in the country. We should not even consider choosing our next President just because they have the most “catchy” slogans and jingles, Tama po ba? We need someone who can present solid platforms  and will entertain our random questions vs lewd performances by girl dancers. Candidates can promise heaven and earth to us but asking them “how” they can make their platforms into a reality is a different story. If they do not like to be questioned, another red flag on why we should not even consider electing these traditional politicians masquerading as reformers and new breed of good candidates in the Philippines.

US PRESIDENTIAL DEBATES FEAT. OBAMA AND ROMNEY.

US PRESIDENTIAL DEBATES FEAT. OBAMA AND ROMNEY.

2) EXPENSIVE ELECTION SYSTEM IS LIMITING OUR OPTIONS. Whether you agree on this or not, we are now hosting every 3 years an election system that can be qualified as one of the most expensive in the world.

VILLAR 2010

VILLAR 2010

Imagine these numbers : PHP 500,000.00 to PHP 1,000,000.00 per 30 seconder TV spot come election season (peak season) and you have a budget for 30 minutes or 60 slots for a  30-seconder TV spot — that is already a whooping PHP 30,000,000.00 to 60,000,000.00 just for TV ad space in a single TV station alone. How about the cost of producing these TV commercials? The other material cost like getting crowd gathering stars like Sarah Geronimo? How about the cost of having people litter the whole country with your tarpaulins and other campaign paraphernalia?

TEAM PNOY 2013

TEAM PNOY 2013

MALAKING TANONG SA  “BIG TIME” DONORS AND CANDIDATES :

Saan at paano mo ito babawiin?

According to Gordon, the Supreme Court has said that “to achieve the purpose of promoting equality, the right of the public, particularly the voters, to be informed of the issues in an election is paramount.”

That’s all for now. Let us open the eyes and minds of our fellow electorate and demand for a public debate.

We request you as to make this as your status when you share this article online :
