  1. Make up your mind for failure

Do you think this sounds to de-motivating and you would not want to dwell too much on this topic.  I don’t think so!! Time and again, business people are so fascinated with their ideas that they can’t imagine disappointment. What’s more, when they have to face it, they feel extremely dejected and don’t know how to solve the problem. Hence be prepared for failure!!

 

  1. Build up a strong marketable strategy

A solid marketable strategy is one that explains all the necessary which needs to be followed for starting a successful business. Finance, marketing, production techniques are some of the important points of that. It likewise gives estimation on the amount you have to spend and your timeframe.

  1. Keep track of the choices you make

As a matter of fact, when your business is in the initial stage, then one small bad decision will make you penniless. Accordingly, it is imperative to deliberately measure your alternatives before deciding, even when you have to give quick solutions and have to move fast. In times of perplexity, outside guidance is a great a way to deal a problem.

 

  1. The ultimate king is Cash flow

Actually a business does not rely on just profits, cash flow plays an important role and this means how quick you make cash and how much goes out. In the event that you generate good revenue at a regular pace, however have to shell out too much money for debts, then that doesn’t sound good. Hence watch out for those numbers and ensure you make consistent stream of money through your business.

  1. Shape the future by adapting the latest trend

If a particular trend is being followed in the market and if you think it will benefit your business, then exploit it. Nonetheless, never stray from your main goal at the same time look out for new trends.

 

  1. Procure workers gradually, however terminate them quick

This statement is self-explanatory. Try not to be in a hurry to hire more staff, unless you definitely require it. Be that as it may, if you notice that your staff members are not committed to the job then release them without hesitating.

  1. Build good relationship with your employees

I know this is contradicting the previous point. What you need to understand is that your hard working employees are like your family. Hence treat them well and organize small team lunch or give birthday gifts.

 

  1. Your first clients have to be valued always

Your regular customers have to be treated like kings, this way you will have repeat business.

  1. Seek a mentor

If the router is placed in an open space, it will be able to reach farther. Wireless signal will be blocked if there are walls nearby. Also place the router away from other electronic devices like TV or Fridge.

Wireless Channel

This step can be a bit technical for you if you are not that familiar with computer networking. A wireless signal of a router travels through a certain path. It is called the channel of wireless signal. If the channel is free, the signal will be better. If not, the wireless signal will get weak. Normally there are 11 channels in a standard wireless router. By default, the router will choose a channel which it finds suitable. There are some free software’s which can be used to monitor the traffics of different channels. You can select a particular channel from the router.

Better Security

A wireless router without proper security becomes a property for everyone. And when everyone starts to use your router, your router will cause problem. There are some latest security features which provide stronger encryption. Latest encryption technologies will provide better security which will be harder to hack. There are some routers which provides a table of connected devices, you can track down unwanted devices from that table. Monitoring the client list will provide better security for your Wi-Fi.

There are many things that a traveler can only tell you. So, here are the 6 things that you should not do when traveling.

1. Never exchange currency at Airport

The first thing that you do after landing in the airport is exchange your cash. But that is one of the biggest mistakes that you can do when traveling. You will get the worst conversation rate in Airport so it is always better to carry your ATM or Credit Cards to do that part. Conversation at Airport will only reduce your travel budget.

2. Never eat in restaurants next to Tourist Attractions

Does not matter where you go and which country you visit. This trend will always be the same everywhere. The restaurants just next to the popular tourist attractions are always higher than the normal rate. It should be wrong to say higher in fact it is double or even more. If you consider delicacy then you will get nothing out of it. So, make sure you walk a bit of distance to find a good restaurant and enjoy the delicious food there.

3. Never use Private Transportation

Transportation like Taxis and cabs are always costlier. They charge even more if you are a tourist and a foreigner. Make sure to use Public Transport as much as possible. If you really do not have options then it is better to go for authorized cab services than normal taxis.

4. Don’t limit to hotels only

hostel

There is a common understanding among tourists that hotels are the best options. Well, if you are in the tight budget then never mind the options like hostels and apartment rentals as well. These places are usually very clean and many people use them very safely. The scenario has changed and apartment rentals are not so bad now. You can also look for the travel community services which are trending these days and not bad either.

When I went to Toronto, I rented an apartment from a very reputable online rental company and upon arrival and departure I made sue to hire a cleaning company to clean the place which I found it online. It was still cheaper for me than a hotel!

5. Never roam alone at night

You must admit and accept the fact that you are not as safe in a foreign land as you are in your own country. So, never walk or roam alone in the city streets especially at nights. Criminals are everywhere and they sought mistakes like this to happen. Do not label any country as safe and try to be cautious and take preventive actions.

6. Never pay any charges to your banks

Make sure that the cards you are carrying are free for transactions abroad. There are many banks that charge extra fees for it but make sure that you do not entertain such fees.
