Travelling alone – the good, the bad and the ugly…

Tina Morganella from her BLOG “Only connect” shares her thoughts;

Never travelled on your own? I’m a big fan of solo travel. You find yourself tapping into resources and strengths you didn’t even know you had. It’s challenging, scary and, let’s face it, sometimes deliciously dangerous. I always meet an incredible array of people – probably because my insatiable need for people and chat doesn’t necessarily diminish when I’m on my own, I just need to work harder to get my fix. There are some negatives though – a small problem can turn into a catastrophe when you don’t have someone to share it with, and eating dinner by yourself night after night could make even a reclusive mute feel lonely.

So what are the pros and cons? for more click here.

Why cant I find Ebay in China?

China like to do things their own way.. there are lots of examples like QQ (MSN) where things look similar but have a different name.

Also remember that China as a nation is very focused on export trade, so you are likely to find sites that sell exclusively to Overseas in English, with the sites for locals in Chinese. If you are desperate to find out what the local buy, try Google Translate to be able to read Chinese pages.

One successful sourcing site is Alibaba (yes as in the story) that promotes products to overseas customers in moderate volume. http://www.alibaba.com/ You may still find the minimum quantity too large for you if you have not had that type of product before, but the suppliers are trying to weed out retail customers. If you only need a small amount you could try the “younger cousin” http://www.aliexpress.com One of the issues here is that you may not know who the seller is unless you do some research as it could range from an employee who is stealing from their employer and selling things from home, to dealing direct with a multinational company… spend the time and read their website and any other information you can find.

To find out about businesses and reseach suppliers – have a look at the Hong Kong Trade Development Centre – run by the Hong Kong Government it offers lots of supplier and trade show information. http://www.hktdc.com/en-buyer/

Many small and medium businesses fail to get input into their management.

Many small and medium businesses fail to get input into their management.  – This could mean lost opportunities:

Having a management “board” of some form makes real sense. It is difficult – if not impossible to keep an eye on everything. Even if the skill set is within the company – a board can be a great catalyst for making things happen in a logical process while adding accountability and equity to management.

In the worst cases, the idea of a board is rejected due to ego or internal political reasons.

Often the most common reason for not setting up a board is from not knowing about the process as it is not really the type of thing that Accountants or Lawyers help with – or is it?

Find out about the latest trends and opportunities for improvements at a workshop presented by Family Business Australia.

This one is aimed at family businesses of all shapes and sizes, including first generation businesses that need to look outside the square to take their business to the next level.
