Within the administrative process, one of the most mystical and important (though not always should have) is the address, it concentrates in itself, the whole set of processes, methods and strategies that leaders and managers of companies should take to manage and represents the highest figure of authority within an organization. The harsh reality is that it is in the direction of a company, where mistakes are most far-reaching, affecting to such a degree that can lead to bankruptcy, closing or mass layoff until the prison of its directors. Added to this is also where the greatest concentration hate, as most employees show dissatisfaction, anger, frustration and a whole host of mostly negative feelings.
The funny thing is, not all happen, but the fact that most managers do not know, or do not understand, or do not want to see. The reason is very simple, behind every leader, manager, manager, etc.. There is a human being who makes mistakes, but whose pride prevents you afford the “luxury” to accept it, what can we do? Unfortunately little or nothing until there is still a device to control the minds of people. Now I turn to you, if you having a medium or high position in a company, you who thought like many start their own business and be your own boss, for you, a list of quick tips, simple and practical to help to identify those errors that usually makes a manager and that cause the most disturbing feelings of enmity and hatred between you, your company, its suppliers and even employees.
Accept that you are human and can make mistakes: There is nothing more frustrating and destructive of mind in their employees, a boss who does not recognize their mistakes. Stop playing God, accept responsibility and take steps to counter the result of their mistakes instead of hiding or throw them to another, this will give you strength as a leader, and will earn the respect of many of its employees.
Not embezzle the company: I have worked in many companies, where the pattern comes home early every week, and takes whatever is in the petty cash as a result of this action, often can not pay suppliers or support employees with a loan. I have found cases where even the payroll has been affected. Do not do this, you are affecting the reputation both inside and outside of your company, the image that has cost so much sweat build. Please do not mug yourself.
Do not want to play multi : To save a few dollars, many employers lay off certain employees or hire someone to avoid a task that can sometimes be critical, saying that they themselves can do, for example, the website company’s internal network management, managers have seen so making your own desk! Do not be fooled, you can not yet specialized needs people who will give you quality work, not sloppy like that surely will also fulfill more than one function can lead to neglect his job as an administrator, how you really should neglect the care and supervision of their company just to save some money?
Do not deceive your employees: Many companies will make many promises when a person gets a job, the sad reality is that most of them are not met, I have seen people give up frustrated highly productive company for which they worked, because the promises were never fulfilled, that includes job promotions, salary increases, training, etc.. It is sensitive to this issue, but the more honest you are with your employees, better relationship with them and you will be so faithful that even surprised what they can get to do for the company when they are treated with clarity and told the truth from the beginning.
Do not Play with the salary of its staff: This is a controversial issue. The terrible tragedy is that always, always have a manager / boss / manager / owner playing with the salaries of their staff, they made cuts, accounting tricks used to desfavorecerlos (eg create another shell company and divide the salary of its employee between the two, so unless the government reports and staff reporting harms way less pay). The biggest problem is that employers always want to save money, all I want to see how spending, cut spending, and the more the better. This policy, in reality is not always the best, not only causes discontent in their staff, but gives rise to the company is using its own administrative defraudad, remember this rule of thumb, the wages of their employees is sacred, always keep it time and with no surprises and you will be faithful and committed.
Do not make too large boards or wrongly: Contrary to what you think, the average employee hates gaskets, abhors. Just after leaving a meeting, when you think you’ve managed to motivate your employees or delivered a great speech that will be remembered by generations in the business, the reality is that your employees are grumbling about it, commenting on how boring was, how much you talk and how much they wanted to shut up and probably remember your mother and maybe even the rest of her offspring. Be brief on the boards, and if they are not important, well, that’s what the e-mail, memos, internal messaging, etc.
Do not make absurd and excessive cuts: In an age of recession, many feel the need to cut costs, think, what are the costs really should be trimmed? Many managers cut spending absurdly stationery, but abuse of expenses for travel allowances and incentives that they are granted, nor torment your employees with this. Once I got to see the manager of a company, its employees running around with the electricity bill in hand, requiring them to save on power. My point is, Al employee really cares? The reality is that if you see the need to make cuts, which analyze unnecessary costs, which are alternatives that do not involve too low quality to business supplies (stationery, supplies, operating expenses, etc..) and which are important and there is practically no way to eliminate or reduce. With the list in hand, make a memorandum informing taking measures without communicating figures. You can even offer a small incentive to employee more thrifty (which also is expressed in numbers but in kind)
Do not charge personal expenses to a company accounts: Maybe at this point many will be offended, I have seen managers pay his wife’s dress, birthday clock for your lover or the car of the year for the child with the checkbook Company. Do not do this again is stealing from the company, you should remember that your company is a person before the law, and therefore, also have expenses and needs, by charging their own, only the tax burdens, and in the end, will that an auditor to face one of these days.
Plan, never improvise: A year ago I was in a board, are provided for the planning document of 2007, totally blank. Then the new manager approached us, took planning 2006, launched as far as possible and asked: “How far they want to grow this year?” He then invited us to write the numbers us to think and to choose the that was the best among all. This can not happen to a reputable company. Planning is the cornerstone of its growth throughout a period, I could not make up figures or in the worst cases, it may not have a written plan. Unfortunately many companies are managed to drift and crash into the iceberg of bankruptcy because their managers do not plan, and what’s more, most of them do not consider important. As result of this man’s absurd that followed, the company had to close 3 branches this year and now his job is in jeopardy. Do not be naive, do not get anywhere without a plan.
Do not abuse the self improvement courses: This fashionable these days that companies send their employees to take personal enrichment courses. Literally, I’m not against these courses, but many of the methods used and the dubious “experience” of many of their instructors. But going to the topic, I’ve noticed this too many entrepreneurs have used it as a weapon to pressure, “You have to give the best of yourself, and you should not matter whether or not you pay for it, what you are not professional?” was what I heard from a marketing manager to a subordinate, correct me if I’m wrong, but slavery is over long ago, is not it? Overcoming a person, not a fight with the financial remuneration that should receive their daily effort, not a standard for companies to pay less and demand more.
Do not make decisions with feelings: Maybe it is the hardest part, the problem is that many managers and personnel managers dismiss someone because they liked him, did not obey him at their whim and say why not? No submitted to his wishes (which may even include some of a sexual nature). When we make decisions based on feelings rather than reason, we are more likely to commit errors that may lead to brutal an outrageous and expensive legal or financial mess, if you make a decision, if possible give reasons first, if you have someone with who consult it, do it, remember that you do not know everything, maybe someone has a better solution than yours, and if so, do not forget to acknowledge the idea of that person.
Thus far end of quote some of the advice to not ruin a company, these are the result both of my long working life and the experience of others who have strongly influenced my way of taking actions and decisions, which may not achieve or remember all make mistakes, do not worry, do the best you can always trying to keep as many of them and all will be well.

6. If you require financing, assesses what is the best option for your Mype
Evaluate all the options we have at our disposal to assess credit, leverage is good but we must be very careful about over-indebtedness. A very good page about it compares well.
7. Avoid if possible use your personal credit card to fund the company.

Secondly, it is appropriate for our company as a legal entity that is, start winning position in the financial market. This will be achieved through the motions that we need through the official accounts of the company. Having a good reputation in the financial system will open doors in the not too distant future.

The key element of the definition of participation is the active presence of every man in the decision-making …
The Dictionary of Spanish Espasa Calpe has several meanings for this term where the term fits properly Participation. For the present case we will take this: “f. Intervention in any case. ”
Now, I will rely on the following sentence to expose the idea of participation:
“The basis of evolution is supported by administrative involvement”
Participating is taking part, be present in decision-making, be part of the success or failure of those same decisions, enjoy or suffer the final scope, feel the company as an integral part of my being, etc..
The company’s employees, regardless of their level, are links that make the great chain of the organization. All links are important and we should in fact consider that there are no important links, and even ignore them as such.
To engage employees must start from the principle of “wanting”.
The company should want the full participation of its employees in all circumstances and events not only have to call for extra help, in a state of despair and almost gives the situation for less.
“Hey, put your hand”, “What if I help”, “I collaborate, please” and the constant complaint: “Nobody works”, “Nobody cares”, etc..
People, by nature, like to participate and have the greatest desire to do so. This natural quality should be delivered.
Participating people feel interesting and even important (natural stimulus ego).
To accomplish it invite them to participate. No part ordered. They are two very different situations.
Communications vertical, horizontal, side are clearly demarcated in organization theory, organizational charts graphically represented and bound by the same principles.
If you apply the hierarchy it suddenly becomes valid, respected organization representing, in regard to the so-called “regular channels”, but if this is typical of human communication in society, communications should not have hierarchy .

It is uncommon for a couple or brothers apply for a mortgage. In that case, the mortgage is more than one owner. The point is that when one of the owners can not or will not pay more than their share of the mortgage.
For the bank the problem is very simple. The mortgage must be paid equally. If one of them will not or can not, the bank is not interested in the slightest. The point is that each month has to receive the fee, otherwise it is a problem between owners.
This means that if a person shares a mortgage and the other party does not pay, is also responsible for non-payment. And of course if you stop paying, the consequences are for both. It overwhelms the well, and both are responsible for the remaining debt.
When situations arise, it is obvious that they have to resolve it between, but not a problem bank. Keep in mind that when we ask a mortgage with another person.
When we buy stuff, we choose those that give us a certain comfort level. It is true that sometimes circumstances force us to buy goods or services, even those who do not want, but the underlying effect-that in such circumstances, we believe, constitutes the effect of comfort you seek.
Consider the above a bit more. Most things we buy we provide a direct and conscious of comfort. For that reason, we chose first. However, at other times we acquire goods or services not plan to use in pursuit of personal gain, but rather to comply with any requirement, commitment or solidarity. However, in each case there is always some element that, indirectly, gives us comfort that effect we seek.
Think for example of the last time you purchased an item as a gift for someone who, with all the kindness of the world, invited you to a party. That thing you bought was not for your personal enjoyment, but it made you feel good about yourself that make someone else happy.
All things because of acquired directly or indirectly satisfy a particular emotion.
However, understanding the mechanisms that drive us to consume goods and services is an excellent way to plan strategies that work to introduce our products and services to the people who make up our target market.
Encourage the purchase of our products must be our goal as a business and, to get it-we must understand what emotions aroused our products and services to our clients, so-to-introduce them, we manage to capture their attention and spark their interest in our offer .
You can not expect that everyone will fight over the new product or service to market just for a simple reason: there will be people who are genuinely interested and people who are not going to convince more you rack your brains .
Personally, for instance, easy to understand, I hate the liquid meal, such as broths and soups, so I can not wait to sell me a soup because I’m simply not interested. The reason is as stale as stupid and of course, I will not confess it here. Just say you have to do with a fear that arose many years ago that has haunted me ever since. I can not watch a broth or soup without that old fear assail my senses and it is precisely this fear that prevents using the satisfier.
However, people’s purchasing habits can change when unexpected circumstances arise, of which-the individual-has no control and that force you to follow the trend that marks the turning point.
That’s why knowing the wants, needs and concerns of our customers is so important. They allow us to elucidate strategies to encourage consumption of our products and services, reinforcing the client’s interest when, consciously or unconsciously, want what we offer, or arousing their interest if shown apathetic.
This article is about the attitude we should adopt the new financial manager in the new company and the measures to be implemented during the first days in his new position. Before mentioning the recommendations, I would emphasize that the key element is the presentation to new subordinates. The correct approach is to provide them with calm and confidence in you After that we can continue with the following recommendations:
Meet with employees. This event is very important and requires time available for it. You need to determine who the key employees of the company and join them. This means you must meet with the entire management team. Meet the warehouse manager, the purchasing staff, vendors and engineers. Always ask who else can go to get a wide view of the company and know the strengths and weaknesses of this. Keeping these links you will have a very valuable source of information.
No business review reports. Although you are tempted to retreat into his office and devote himself to the study of management reports and statistics, remember that the primary task is to relate to key people, so stop reading these documents after work or weekends, when no one else to turn.
Wait before taking radical decisions. Consider the first months on the job as his “honeymoon” assignment, where the majority of staff will agree with you Do not shorten this period by taking ill-considered decisions. To achieve best possible solutions is expected to take some decisions until we have previously discussed with key personnel. Sometimes it is difficult to withdraw from decisions announced.
Establish priorities. As a result of the meetings, prepare an initial list containing work priorities, this list could include such efficiency improvements and restructuring needed in the departments. Communicate these plans in general meetings, while revealing personal meetings the individual effects that will cause those involved. Do not let employees feel personally surprised by their ads on the general staff meetings. It is advisable to express the individual impacts involved long before the general meetings, be prepared for this.
Create and implement a system of staff review. If you intend that certain individuals in the company to abandon the post at the beginning of his administration, this is the best time to make it happen. However, there is great risk of letting go of the key people in the company if we do not have adequate information on them, so you should install a system of staff review as soon as possible and use this tool to determine exactly who stays and who goes.
The financial manager should focus during the early days of communication, because the employees during this period are rightly nervous when you change the head, and the new manager can do much to alleviate those feelings. Furthermore, the focus on building personal contacts across the enterprise is an appropriate way to insert firmly in the company in the short term and much more likely to not be rejected by the organization in general.
I will now continue to the first article I wrote about financing alternatives, where I explained the need for the entrepreneur to learn and consider new sources of funding. Also described briefly the significance of investment capital (private equity) and now describe five other alternatives.
Venture Capital (Venture Capital)
The term comes from the U.S. Venture Capital and refers to the provision of venture capital investors in the equity of the company or contribution in the form of quasi-equity. These resources are available for a limited time which lasts from three to ten years and is set by contract. Venture Capital In the negotiation waiver of collaterals. The contribution of venture capital is oriented primarily to opportunities for business growth and high returns accruing to investors. Venture Capital is used to fund companies that are in their early stage, growth stage and special situations investments.
Venture Capital required for the most innovative young companies in the field which are not listed on the stock exchange. These companies have great growth potential but also hide a high investment risk.
It is known as angel investors wealthy individuals who provide capital and business expertise to innovative entrepreneurs as well as young innovative enterprises. These investors invest part of their personal wealth directly to the company without the help of intermediaries and in return receive shares.
Typically angel investors have knowledge in creation or in business management. In most cases have both. They have extensive business knowledge and a strong network of contacts for promoting the company.
Angel investors invest in companies that are in the initial stage. Not only support the company with its capital but also provide knowledge and experience. This support enables the company to add value beyond price.
The mezzanine financing concept is the generic term for financial instruments in the balance because of their legal and economic characteristics is ordered between equity and debt.
Often referred to these financial instruments as hybrid forms of financing. Mezzanine capital is a form of independent funding, rather it consists of financial instruments known.
Basically this type of financing is for companies that have high growth targets and this requires a large sum of capital. Besides the high growth potential, the company should have a good financial performance and well positioned in the market.
Typically, this instrument was translated into the Management-Buy-Outs (MBO), but also used mezzanine capital to finance growth strategies, projects, acquisition strategies or preparing initial public offering.
For the median company delayed or doubtful collections of payment are difficult to support and affect the sustainability of the company. A form of financing that helps companies to overcome this problem is factoring.
Factoring refers to the continuous purchase of short-term debts for goods and services. A company transfers the receivables it has with its customers to another company and this gets the rights to collect from the debtor. Using Factoring can generate several benefits for a company and most important is undoubtedly the protection afforded by the factoring finance company against doubtful debts payment because it pays an amount equal to the outstanding receivables. Thus, the factoring client is protected from default by their customers.
Especially for medium size leasing has become in recent years as a real alternative to bank loan.
The difference of a leasing contract with a classic that is expressed in the elements of a lease agreement beyond the simple right to use the object of leasing. The tasks that usually fall under the responsibility of the landlord are transferred to the lessee or user of leasing. These tasks also includes maintenance, repairs or insurance.
Because the leasing company assumes the funding of the object, the tenant has ample space for future financial decisions. This is achieved by reducing the financial dependence lenders. Fees are paid lease parallel with the use of the object, so this is funded almost by itself. The capital structure does not vary with leasing.
Financing instrument that the company should use? This is at the discretion of the company should consider whether the objectives are compatible with the type of financing. The question always arises whether the objectives of the company and the objectives of the business owner can be made with the choice of a particular form of financing?. These objectives may relate to the independence of the company, liquidity, growth and safety.
Add to this the question about the purpose of use of funds raised. The financing requires strategic decisions as crecimeinto finance, investments, acquisitions or projects.
