Hi everyone. I've found a marketing and distribution agent in Cape Town and embarking on getting Entrepreneurship made Easy into local bookstores. What a journey and so many people/pieces in the middle (and costs). It's an interesting business journey though. I'll keep you posted and let you know when the books will appear in South African bookstores. Meanwhile you can buy a pdf e-book and a soft copy from my website. www.bevmoodie.com. And the books are also available on Amazon. Thanks for your support!

ABOUT PROFIT!
In my journey as an entrepreneurial educator, enabling others to become entrepreneurs, much discussion has ensued over profit often highlighting many misconceptions about its place and use.

Profit, especially in the non-profit world, is a big NO! In small business many believe that profit is somehow left over from sales; that their salaries come out of profit or that profit immediately goes into the pocket of the owner. And then there's the association between profit and capitalism - a word which, in some quarters, has negative connotations.

Perhaps if we understood what profit really means, its place and value, we might have a different perspective.

Firstly, every business needs to make a profit in order for it to become sustainable and to grow. When a business grows it needs extra supplies and workers, contributing positively to the local economy and creating jobs. In South Africa today, one hears that the Government has to and will create jobs. But it's not the Government main focus to create jobs; that belongs to Business. Government's task is to provide and ensure an enabling environment to make it easier for Business to do business, make a profit and grow the economy.

Secondly there is often a misunderstanding around the use of profit in business, especially in the small business and emerging entrepreneurial sectors. Here it is common to hear the belief that the owner's salary comes from profit. No it doesn't. When it comes to costing, profit needs to be cost into the selling price of a product or service, as does the salary of the small business owner (an overhead). If the costing and business management processes are done correctly the business owner will see profit and benefit from it, with stability, growth and prosperity for all concerned. And with regard to the idea that any profit made should go immediately into the pocket of the business owner it's important to understand that business's profit belongs to the business first. Yes, there are dividends and profits payable to owners, partners and shareholders in business, but only when there is an excess of income above the needs of the business for stability and growth.

Bearing this in mind perhaps if NGOs applied business concepts to the running of their project - costing out their services correctly, with profit, perhaps they could be sustainable and grow. It's the way of the future. It can and has been done. It also means viewing their funders as 'clients' and that requires a total mind-shift for both funders and NGOs.

And then there's the profit - capitalism link.

If you know a little about world history, in 1978 (after almost 20 years of poverty) Deng Xiaopeng, a Chinese Revolutionary and veteran of the Communist Party, was eager to adopt capitalist methods and reforms in order to stimulate economic growth and restore confidence in the party. After signing an historic accord in 1979 with the US leader Jimmy Carter, he launched several economic reforms and due to these reforms China has gone from a country that opposed capitalism to one that embraces property rights, profits and free market competition. It is indisputably one of the strongest economies in the world today.

Makes you think? I hope so

SIX TIPS FOR PUBLISHING YOUR BOOK

Publishing your book is never easy, but opportunities abound!

As a writer, author and mentor to aspiring authors I have loved the variety of books I have reviewed, proof-read and helped to publish.

Although publishing is a huge subject, I thought I'd share just six, yet important, tips to help you along the way.

1. Be clear about WHY you want to publish your book. Publishers will ask you that question too. If you are clear about what and for whom, the nature of the book and marketing it becomes a lot easier. And, it's not always for the money. Many authors continue with their 'day jobs' and write because they feel the urge to share their experiences.

2. Honour the integrity of the book. I have found that each book has its own character as it comes together. I call this the book's integrity (truthfulness). As you put your book together it starts to develop its own character, sometimes in conflict to what you wanted to have happen. Trust your gut and the flow of the story.

3. Check everything. Proof-reading a book will pick up bits that may seem out of place, for example the use of words that may not fit the story's time-line. Editing your book is essential as an editor will pick up sloppy writing habits, correct grammar and spelling. Your credibility as an author depends on this.

4. Choose your book's cover carefully. Your cover must grab attention and be appealing. If you're self-publishing be careful with free photos and templates. One of my authors found a wonderful front cover picture offered free on the web, however when printed it showed a water-mark, which is not professional. Free on the web usually means it is for your private use, not for sale.

5. Be clear about your target-market or genre(category) as it is known in the publishing world. This again makes it a lot easier to publish and market, but also dictates the number of pages the story should take. For example children's books are categorised into age groups, each age group dictating the number of pages best suited to it.

6. Have fun marketing your book. Publishing has changed and even if your manuscript is chosen by a publisher (which may cost you money) you will be required to assist with the marketing.
Here's a little inspiration from a quote on "Power of Positivity" page.

"Life is like a book
Some chapters are sad, some are happy and some are exciting,
But if you never turn the page, you will never know what the next chapter
Has in store for you"

May your story flow.

FIVE SMART BUSINESS START-UP STEPS
(from Entrepreneurship made Easy - Self Study Guide)

Business is not only all about money and ideas. Business is about people - after all where does creativity, the idea, passion and energy come from?

Here are five KISS (Keep It Simple Smart) steps to help you create and grow yours -

1. BE YOURSELF. You are the most important person in the business (next to your client). Your choice of business idea, product or services wraps around you - your personality (strengths) and limitations; your experience, your talents or skills. Know and believe in yourself

2. DO WHAT YOU LOVE TO DO. This is usually a talent and yes everyone has one. This is the passion that is the essence of entrepreneurship. If you love what you do you can do it, every day and, do it well. You don't need a certificate. I witnessed a school-leaver start a soccer clinic for under 13's; much to his surprise and delight too. Work with what you know.

3. WORK WITH WHAT YOU HAVE NOW. It is common to want to buy things for our potential business. This is a stall tactic where fear rears its head and we give too much attention to what we think might go wrong, instead of what might go right. Move fear away and look at the many resources that you can use to earn income. Perhaps those resources are simply ingredients in your cupboard, with which you can make sandwiches for the workers of a local business, or a selling or organising skill you can offer to others.

4. LINK AND ADD VALUE. It's important to be different in the market-place. Linking with another business and offering something that is needed (adding value) is a great way to start without capital. For example, instead of opening another coffee shop, provide goodies that are different to those offered and might be needed. How do you know? Ask!

5. JUST DO IT! - One step at a time. Yes we can plan until our eyes are squiffy. Getting out there, burning rubber and doing market research is a great way for people to get to know what you're offering, whilst also providing focus and direction for the nature of your product or service. In doing just that a lady offering a wardrobe and accessory service to executive women in corporate companies discovered that men were actually her potential clients. Never ASSUME.

YES you can! And remember to have fun!

Our Story

Like most journeys in business, Business Opportunity Books came about almost by accident as I followed a need in the marketplace. As an entrepreneurial educator and business coach, presenting courses and helping countless people, from all walks of life, to start their own successful businesses with little or no money, I was asked for a book to help friends and family do the same. And so I wrote Entrepreneurship made Easy (which was a my first experience in publishing and cost me a lot of lessons) but which sold 15000 copies in South Africa and has since been adapted into an e-book and a fun, easy to apply on-line course. This product and others have proven to be valuable resources also for trainers and teachers needing good materials and a novel approach to helping others earn their own income and keep it. I also provide coaching and on-line support. Find me at www.bevmoodie.com.
