Define business and categorization

Topic: General

Question

October 29, 2014

Dennis - USA

Answer

A business is a legally recognized enterprise or organized activity that obtains, creates or manufactures products or services and then sells them to customers on a continuing basis.

One form of business categorization is the way you will accept payments.You can categorize businesses as retail, mail order, or internet.

You could also categorize business by the type of products or services the business provides.

The main purpose of a business is to provide products or services to customers at a profit. There are many factors involved, which are listed in alphabetical order on Business Definitions.

Starting a business for the deaf

Topic: Starting a Business

Question

August 23, 2013

Hello!

I'm Rebecca Reed, and I wanted to compliment your page called (http://schoolforchampions.com/business/resources.htm). 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: (http://www.shoretelsky.com/resources/business-resources-for-entrepreneurs-with-disabilities/). 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

Answer

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.

Resource for business financing

Topic: General

Question

April 19, 2013

Subject: about the score.org resource

I was doing some research, and noticed that you list SCORE.org along with a few other great sites on: www.school-for-champions.com/business/resources.htm.

Honestly, thank you for mentioning them. I really can't say enough positive things about what they do.

It may be worthwhile to mention BusinessFinancing.org either above or below them. In my experience, many entrepreneurs are looking at financing options, while most sites offering information are just looking to turn them into clients.
This way you can point visitors somewhere without having to trust a commercial site.

Thank you again, and keep up the great work.

Take care.

Sincerely,
