Suggested resource

February 25, 2019



I hope you don't mind me reaching out! I'm looking into starting my own side business and was just reading through your business resources – super helpful, thanks for listing these :-)

I wanted to recommend an article, if you're open to it. Because I'm looking to start something with little to no investment, I found this list of low cost business ideas ( super intriguing. I didn't see anything like this on your resource page so I figured I'd share in case your visitors could find it helpful.

Thanks again!

Customer spreading false rumors

November 6, 2017


We had a customer accuse of of fraud for selling her a setting made of platinum because it was attracted to her rare earth magnet. I understand that jewelry is not our platinum, but considered pure with 950/50 ratio. I understand cobalt is often used as the 50. I understand cobalt is magnetic. I also understand that platinum is paramagnetic; which means it is a weak magnet.

Even if there was no Cobalt, is it possible if the rare earth magnet was strong enough it would attract the platinum? There are many websites stating that if it is attracted to a magnet. It is not platinum. The hurt the entire jewelry industry. Jewelers and pawn shops are misinformed because if these sites. They misinform customers.

I need some help in getting the truth out. We used, Stuller, a Billion dollar company as our supplier and showed her the invoice. We even paid $150 to have the setting independently appraised by a certified GIA gemologist. She would not accept those pieces if evidence and is calling us frauds, ruining our business. I need help in stopping the false info on the net that hurts our industry.

I hope you can help me with data on this. Thank you in advance.

It is unfortunate that some people are complete jerks, and not only will not accept solid information that disputes some belief those people have, but they are also so nasty that they try to ruin another person's business.

The problem is that it is so easy to spread false statements through Social Media, and that there are people who will believe anything they see.

One thing you could do concerning this nasty customer is to offer to buy back the setting. It might be worth taking the loss than having such a person spreading false information about you and your business.

It is unlikely that any platinum used in jewelry is 100% pure. Also, since is it paramagnetic, it is slight attracted to a strong rare earth magnet. But of course, this will not convince some people.

I guess you--as well as many business people dealing with the public--have to be careful and spell things out before making a sale.

Best wishes for handling such problems in your business.

Money needed to start business

October 29, 2016


how to start a Business without Capital ?

mehmood - India (27424)


If your business is providing a service, you only need enough money for some advertising and letting people know about what you have to offer.

If you are planning on selling products, you need enough money to purchase or make the products, as well as a place to sell them.

Best wishes in starting your business.

Manage business and school at the same time

February 22, 2016


am a university student and i want to involve myself in business without interfering with my academic perfomance, how can i manage my business and school at the same time?
Please help
thank you

- Malawi (26800)


Managing a business and studying in school at the same time can be difficult. However, there are many entrepreneurs who have been able to do both.

Good time management is important. Set aside a certain amount of time for your studies, as well as other blocks of time for your business activities. Multi-tasking or trying to do two or more things at once actually prove to be inefficient. It is better to focus on one thing at a time.

Work smarter instead of harder. You can get more things done that way.

Trying to do both may cut into your social life. But you can take time to enjoy yourself, as long as it is not overdone.

I hope these ideas help. Best wishes for success in your studies, as well as in your business.

Discuss business as a career

February 15, 2016


discuss business as a career

Edwin - Kenya (26781)


You really can't have business as a career. That is a vague term.

Now, you might get a good job in some business and make it your career. Being in business management it another area. Or you could start up your own business and run it as a career.

I hope that helps you understand the concepts.

Ijaz - Pakistan (26529)


In business, you need to get a product or service to sell to your customers. Often products are bought from producers and then the business sells them to customers.

But also, marketing and advertising is needed to let customers know you are in business.

Wants to start a seed business

October 18, 2015


Greetings! Sir, I have read your good thoughts and ideas to start a good business. These are key points for any successive buisness. I am a student of seed science and technology and i want to establish a seed buisness after completion of my studies. My request is that kindly provide me some guidelines and besic steps to start a seed buisness or to establish a seed corporation. Thanks

Muhammad - Pakistan (26451)


It is good to study the various seed businesses--both large and small--to see what they do and how they get their customers. In fact, it may be worthwhile to look into working for such a company for a while, in order to learn the business and to know who are the suppliers.

If your expertise is in the seed science, it is also good to find a partner who has a business and marketing background.

Write up a short Business Plan that outlines what you want to do and how you will achieve your goals, as well as the funding your will need to get started. A good Business Plan is important in convincing prospective investors.

See Starting Your Own Business: Entrepreneurship for some more ideas, as well as to check the various resources.

Best wishes for success in your upcoming seed business.

Starting a business for the deaf

August 23, 2013



I'm Rebecca Reed, and I wanted to compliment your page called ( My husband and I are both deaf and in the process of starting a firm for other deaf people, sort of like a life coach for the deaf. Its been our dream for the last few years, and I'm happy to say we are getting started!

I wanted to tell you that your page has been really helpful through the planning stage! We particularly appreciated the SCORE page. Although, one thing I was surprised to find missing is info for entrepreneurs with a disability (like us!)

I was finally able to find a page I was looking for. It's a great page for small business owners with disabilities, and I thought you might want to link to it to make an ultimate resource page. This is the one: ( It was so helpful for us!

Anyway, thanks again for the help! I'll be sure to let you know about our success :)
And let me know what you think of the page I sent along!

Thanks again!

Rebecca - USA (23958)


I'm glad the material was helpful to you. I added your suggested link in the Business Resources page. It looks like a valuable list of resources.

I also added the link in the Entrepreneur Resources page.

If you haven't already done so, check out the articles in Starting Your Own Business: Entrepreneurship. They may give you some ideas.

Starting a firm for other deaf people certainly seems like a worthy cause. Best wishes for success in achieving your dream. Let me know how things work out.
