OTC Bulletin Board - Build A Corporate Structure That Investors Love!

By James Scott

Business Owners: Build A Corporate Structure That Investors Love! Ok, you've decided to go after investment capital but you're not sure where to start. Here are the basics that you should pay close attention to before putting your company in front of investors.

First and foremost you need to perform an industry analysis that answers the questions pertaining to where you are in the industry and who are your competitors. It doesn't matter what product or service you offer. You could be selling underwater sock fitting kits and there is a competitor and industry leader somewhere in the world. Don't be so naive in thinking that there is no competition or that you are at the pinnacle of your industry. Show your audience that you've done your research and that you've identified the players in your market.

Next get your executive team together and it better be the who's who in your industry. If you can't attract the upper echelon of your industry genre then you need to do some serious PR on behalf of your individual executive team to show the public what they are made of. Brand them as the up and coming powerhouse executives in the industry. Publish their articles and knowledge on industry blogs and article submission sites. When a funding source initiates general due diligence you need to shine like a lighthouse in the fog. Each and every executive team member needs to have an image that screams power, success and investor security.

The next thing you need to do is take a serious look at your board of directors. Who is on your board, what is their compensation and is there someone that is a better fit for formulating strategies and alliances than those who are currently populating your director staff.

One of the main reasons that investors turn down companies for funding is because they lack the backup of industry players in connection to strategic alliances. You need to identify and contractually reach out to companies that will enhance your overall business strategy. Your minimum goal should be 10 solid, aged companies that have already branded their names in the marketplace and are willing to add you to their mix of advertising and ongoing strategy and they will expect the same from you. Show investors that it's not just you treading water in the industrial whirlpool and that you've built a life preserver of alliances.

Now you are ready to write a business plan and private placement memorandum that takes all the essential elements above and puts them in two well authored and to the point documents that will make an interesting and informative read for investors who have a track record of investment in your particular industry. If you've written your own business plan, toss it. If investors are going to take you seriously you need a professionally written business plan that touches on all the triggers that investors are currently looking for.

Next, it's best to use the Regulation D, Private Placement Memorandum as the vehicle for staying within SEC guidelines for raising capital and you should use a Direct Public Offering as the process for raising the actual capital. Reaching out to friends, family, industrial counterparts and alliances should be the first place you go for funding. If you are lucky the consultant you hire to assist you with the above processes will have a solid database of investors to assist you in your initial, first round raise via DPO.

Last but not least you should consider, even though it's not a mandatory requirement for a PPM or DPO, getting an independent audit done on your company to demonstrate an objective analysis of your financial reality so that investors can find their comfort level quicker without a prolonged comments stage.

There you have it. These are the basics to what it takes to achieve equity investment in this current market. Get out there and raise some money!

Does Your Company Need Strategic Partners? Here Is Exactly How To Do It!

By James Scott

Do You Need Capital For Your Company? Build Strong Strategic Partnerships! In this economy, companies who survive have more than just a strong business model; they have aligned themselves with strategic partners in a joint effort to create a win/win relationship where each contributes to a pool of contacts, promotional initiatives and industrial knowledge.

Strategic alliances are the number one way to strengthen your company if you are trying to raise capital from venture capital firms, angel investors, hedge fund lenders, angel investors or if you are trying to take your company public. Empirical evidence companies who demonstrate a track record of unified success strengthens the package and puts you on the radar as an invest-able entity and you'll start to get attention from the big players as you watch the value of your company soar.

The big question is, "Where do you find these partners and who can help you speed up the search?" You should start by having an executive meeting and put all your industry contacts together and invite these contacts to a networking 'meet and greet'. Make it nice. Have a caterer, have giveaways etc. After you've done this the next step is to talk to your accountant, attorney, members of professional organizations in which you are a member, your banker, your billing service (if you outsource your invoicing), your financial adviser and/or consultant and any other professional that you've used in the past who has access to corporations in your industry or in a complimenting industry and can introduce you to new partners. This is exactly how 'in demand' executives and powerful CEO's, CFO's and consultants do it.

I have personally built a database of 10,000's of contacts from using these methods, in fact I've never gone into a consulting situation where I couldn't introduce my client to 1,000+ new strategic partners and I just cherry pick to find the best partners for my client. Your contact portfolio is the most powerful thing you'll have in business. Contacts are your bartering chip when you're in a crunch or when your board of directors is all looking at you waiting for a miracle. I have made it a point to create contacts in every industry no matter how polar opposite the industries may seem because it has allowed me to step into any situation with companies of any size and immediately start putting the pieces together and building an infrastructure based off of the powerful knowledge of dozens of industry experts.

Take the initiative and find a consultant who can help you launch your company into a whole new realm with the power and knowledge and expertise of a contact base built to induce growth and stability.

Shell Merger - Reverse Merger - Reverse Merger Blog

By James Scott

Private Placement Memorandum authoring and the process of taking one's company public are services that require extensive experience and the ability to look at a deal objectively and peripherally to evaluate all the angles to enhance the ability of the client to achieve funding in a timely manner.

Many times, when I'm hired to structure a company before funding, they will be under the impression that my evaluation is a mere formality and they are ready to go. Often I'm the bearer of bad news when I have to break it to the client that their company has more holes than Swiss cheese and 30 to 60 days away from starting the fund raising process.

They will often get a second and then third opinion and usually run into the same thing before they eventually find their way back to our firm. As they call around to consulting firms they perpetually experience the 'hard sell' by firms who 'need' the business because they lack the rewards and referrals that come with cultivating each client relationship because they take on and spit out deals so fast they hardly remember their client's name during the transaction.

This mentality dominates the larger firms because of their gargantuan overhead while the boutique firms can take a more personal approach because they have a steady flow of business and referrals because they are not stressed about bringing in the next big deal so they can meet payroll and keep their lights on. The smaller companies that focus on turnaround consulting, private placement memorandum authoring, top tier business plan writing and taking companies public usually take a one on one approach to the consulting process and will rarely pressure clients to sign on because their phone is ringing off the hook with previous clients who want to hire them for the next stage in the evolution of their company's growth.

This business is all about relationships. Ditch the consultant that applies the high pressure sales tactics and seek out the smaller, more personalized groups that don't 'need' your business but will cultivate and value it.

How To Get The Best Use Out Of Your Solar Powered Iphone Case

By Sarah Walker

Here you will learn the best methods of using your iphone solar case so you get the most out of it. You will know how to determine charge times, where to charge, how to use, and my solar charger experience. Additionally, if you follow this simple article, you too will know how to get the most use out of the charger.

If you are reading this, then you want to learn more about the iphone solar charger which means you are at the right place, let's begin. First, you have to unpack the Solar Surge and make sure you have all the contents, the instruction booklet, the USB Cable, and of course the solar charger. Be sure to check the Surge itself, if you see a plastic film piece on the solar powered charger, just remove it. It is a manufacturer's protective film. It is like the same type of film used when you first get a new phone that you simply peel off, this is the same thing.

Make sure your computer is next to you and that it has a USB available. Plug the USB from the Surge to your computer's USB port. You are to charge the iphone solar charger for 3 hours. You are doing this so that the internal battery gets a full charge. After the 3 hours, simply unplug both ends and insert your phone into the Surge. Now make sure you DO NOT Force the phone into the Surge. You could damage the unit and your iphone, you have to remember that iphone is made for the Surge, hold the phone at the top of the solar charger and slide it into the groves until it is seated on the 30 pin connector.

After this part, the solar powered charger is good to go. Just go on with your life like regular, head to work, the mall, park, and any other place you might end up. Just forget about the charger, if you do not and just think about the charger, it will drive you nuts, trust me. After some time, you will realize that you want to use the solar power. And of course you would, that is one of the reasons you bought the charger. Listen up, because this is one of the things you will want to know to get the most use out of your charger.

This is a tool that is needed if your own Surge. It is the Solar Planner for the iPhone. It has the ability to tell you exactly how long to keep the Surge in the sun once you select the desire function will want to use. After you choose, the time will read at the bottom and you will then know the exact time length to have it under the sun. This App really helps in figuring out all this solar power math techno jargon.

Here are some recommendations of where you should place the iphone solar charger when you are ready to charge it. If you are at the office, I suggest you place it in front of your window sill if available, if not, on the computer desk as long as you have sunlight coming through the windows, place the charger in front of it. You will see a little red light on the Surge come on, but make sure you do not stand in front of the light when you check the red indicator light. If you are at home, do the same thing. Additionally, I have done some testing and you can charge it with indoor lighting, but the Surge has to be in front of the bulb very close. I recommend you stick with the outdoor lighting. If you are at the beach, whenever you are not using the solar charger, leave the Surge upwards facing the sun. And if you are using it, do the same thing.

This is how I use my iphone solar case, I will charge the iphone with the regular cable at night and the Solar Surge with the USB Cable and charge throughout the night. In the morning or whenever I am about to leave for work, I take both the iPhone and Surge with me. I usually will leave the Surge in my passenger seat until I actually get into my office. And leave it face up to have sun shining on it just to make sure I get a full amount of sun. Then I head off to work with the iphone in the charger.

On Fridays, I change my routine up so that I get a full charge on my iphone by during this. I will head to the office like before, but at 2pm I put the solar case back in my car and leave it on my dash board. And of course I leave the window cracked so there is a slight breeze and the charger does not overheat. And then when I get off of work, all of us head to the bar or something and my iphone is fully charged. This way I know it is ready for the night. So you can see, I have a whole system so that I get the most use out of my iphone solar case and I hope you do the same.

Reverse Cell Number Lookup-finally Some Answers

By Sabrina Summerfrield

Today most people have a cell phone and have decided to drop their land line service. It's thanks to such huge leaps in technology that we no longer have to pay out the nose for both services. I think that with these huge advances, it only makes sense that we can finally do a reverse cell number search.

We've been using cellular telephones for over twenty years now, even if you didn't personally own one back then, chances are your family physician was carrying a big box on his shoulder with a phone in it. Believe it, things have changed a lot. Now that we've all got cell phones, the time has come for us to be able to know what number keeps calling us.

What do you do? It's a gamble lately, whether to answer the call or not. If you've tried using the free services that are available online, you'll typically get some very vague information regarding the number you're trying to research. The most you can expect is the knowledge that the call is coming from a cellular phone and if you're lucky, you'll find out what city and state the number is registered in.

That's all well and good but really doesn't answer many questions. If you know thirty people in the same town, you really aren't getting a very good clue as to whether or not the incoming call is from someone you know.

Put your mind at ease and use a service that will provide you with the real facts. You may have to pay a minimal fee but it's abundantly clear that it's worth every dime. Once you know who's calling, you can get to the bottom of things. If you choose not to answer calls from that particular number, at least you're doing so with the knowledge that it's someone you don't want to talk to.

Use a low price reverse cell number search online and quickly get the 411 on who is calling your phone. No matter when they call, you'll feel much better knowing whether it's a long lost friend or a bill collector.

Green Screen Studio Make Special Effects Possible

By Phil Guye

Shooting at a Green screen studio is not just a very good experience, but also one that doesn't shake your financial position up. Today, everybody seems to be giving plenty of thought to the quantity of money that they're spending on a picture. It is important for them to add every single dollar before shelling it out. No wastage can be afforded, because money is in such short supply. With the IRS breathing down your neck, trying to gather your taxes down to the last cent, the very last thing you need is a problem with the income department. Thus if you were to shoot at a facility like this, you could ensure that your cash was spent well and not a cent went down the drain.

Searching for a studio to provide all those CGI effects generating technologies that a Green screen studio provides should be one of the things that are on the requirements list of a director. This is especially true if he's shooting a film that has dinosaurs and outsized snakes or a scene with J Lo and Brad Pitt lounging around homily on the mossy ground in an exotic, alien Amazon forest. He actually will not achieve success if he is going to run around in a forest looking for these prehistoric creatures to physically shoot.

Instead, going to the technical staff of Green screen studio could help him a great amount. They will be ready to help him with workable suggestions for making just the sort of ambience that he's hunting for. Considering the indisputable fact that he's trying to find something out of the Ice or Stone Age, he is going to have to be clear on his needs. Whether it be dinosaurs or the setting of an exotic land, anything is possible.

Once the requirements are made known to the staff at Green screen studio, it is their job to provide all the tools that are required to ensure that the shot is done according to the specs provided. All thru the year, the staff is faced with challenging ever-changing scenarios where the requests keep getting more demanding than previously. Nevertheless, they try their very best to provide what the director is attempting to find in order that they are able to maintain their reputation as a one-stop shop for all studio essentials.

Since the Green screen studio can be hired out by the hour, there are people who are prepared to working out an arrangement so the studio can be hired for a longer period at a reduced cost. The amount paid also entitles the director and his crew to be assisted by a technical person who is able to make sure that all the equipment is working properly and in the right way. Once this is done, the work can go on unhindered and the final result will be much better than the director was actually wanting. Even artists start to feel that sense of professionalism that pervades the whole studio, which engulfs the staff too.

The Magic Of Green Screen Studios

By Phil Guye

Green Screen Studios is a cheap video and filmmaking method in which two frames are melded into one. It is also ordinarily called Chroma key or sometimes color keying. A notable use is in TV weather bulletins where the weather person looks to be standing in front of a giant graphic display. What happens actually is that the weather person stands in front of a blank Green Screen Studios. Different graphic displays are then digitally added to the blank green portions to finish the illusion.

Green is a preferential color because it's so different from human skin color that good separation is attained. It's also the color to which digital cameras are most sensitive. The other available color blue is less advantageous because it's a common color in both masculine and feminine clothing and needs brighter lighting. Lots of the more modern Star Wars films make intensive use of color keying strategies. Green Screen Studios is also far less expensive than having your characters or props in front of an actual projection or television screen.

Any project that involves green screen production should require the same kind of homework in sourcing an appropriate Green Screen Studios as a sound stage for a picture or a recording studio for music. The taping or filming of your characters or your props in front of a Green Screen Studios and the subsequent keying out of the green background needs skilled and accomplished technicians.

It is accepted that cost will be an imperative consideration and that Green Screen Studios will charge primarily based on the size and the quality of the gear and the skills of their technicians. This must be balanced out against the proven fact that inexpensive facilities could be deadly for the quality of your project. Conversely, dear facilities could be a waste of money given the production that you am thinking. A good Green Screen Studios will be offering such facilities as acceptable stage size, lighting, green rooms and air-conditioning. A three wall cyclorama is a bonus if your project involves lots of movement by the characters. Other key considerations would be privacy, comfort and satisfactory power availability.

In picking the right Green Screen Studios you need to be certain the color is totally even and the surface totally flat. The screen also has to have the right dimensions. It is generally recommended that you go through each shot you plan and then measure the screen area so that you have the right dimensions. Make allowance for a little extra in case you want to dilate or frame the shot more than you had visualized. Inspect the area on either side of the screen to make sure that there is sufficient space to place your lights. Finally, get the maximum possible space between your characters or props and the screen itself. This could make the job of lighting a lot less complicated.

The Sky's The Limit For Green Screen Studio LA

By Phillip Guye

With the wide variety of capabilities that a special effects crew has, you are able to conjure up anything that you want to. The other day, I had been watching a movie on which the actor was crouching on the side of an alleyway, trying to escape from the enemy who was pursuing him. I would not have, for a second, thought possible that the entire scene was shot in a green screen studio LA. The effect was so realistic that I can virtually feel the distress that the actor was feeling, attempting to sit still in the midst of rodents that were scurrying all around him with the worst of the creepy crawlies out to get him.

Similarly, I have always wondered how it was possible for men in uniform to be filmed during these outstanding action sequences. I am not talking about actual life action, but remakes of certain sorts of military action; something that we all do not see on a regular basis. I keep wondering how the cameraman could easily get so near as to capture the tiniest expression on the faces of the defense forces, striving their best to move onward and quell the exceptional demonic army that was quickly approaching. Now, I realize that these men never went near a battleground. The whole thing was filmed inside a green screen studio LA.

When I saw the process, I realized that it was all about special effects, compositing, editing and stuff like that. The men in uniform were filmed with the green screen as a backdrop inside the green screen studio LA. The picture of the green screen was removed and it was replaced with images of the actual battle. The final movie looked like there was an authentic intense battle raging and that many individuals would become killed on the field. The truth is, it was not actually taking place. There was absolutely no need for bloodshed of any kind. True locations don't figure into this kind of filming, simply because there is no need for it at all.

When the superimposing of pictures can be achieved in no time, there is simply no need for further expenditures that involve transferring to and from actual location spots. But, green screen studio LA can provide a lot more than just the green screen. For example, if you wish to perform your editing in the studio, it is possible to consider using some of the editing bays that are also accessible. All this comes at a fee that may be negotiated before the actual shooting.

There are a lot more features which are given as part of the services offered when you hire the green screen studio LA . You'll be able to ask for the help of a post production team and you may also make sure that the DSL internet link is in working order. It is certainly easy, working in this type of a setup. Therefore, please consider more than once prior to hiking away to some place to shoot challenging shots. These types of green screen studios are much better.

The Benefits Of Business Location Intelligence Solutions

By Adriana Noton

In today's competitive business world, it makes sense for a business to identify current trends, determine what marketing strategies need to be implemented, and develop better problem solving strategies. Business Location Intelligence Solutions helps businesses achieve their goals.

Most businesses can benefit from technological innovations that will help them better understand their business market in order to improve productivity and generate revenue. One such technological method of gathering and measuring location data to better understand markets and customers in a particular region is a term called Location Intelligence Solutions. This term refers to using specific technology such as GIS to gather relevant data that contain trustworthy location content to better understand customers, markets, and services. The ultimate goal of location intelligence solutions is to improve business performance and increase profitability.

Most businesses possess a wealth of data gathered from particular geographical locations that can be helpful in improving their bottom line. For instance, the distance between a supermarket and a residential suburb will greatly influence the number of customers coming to the store compared to another supermarket a mile or two further away. Below are a number of benefits to using Location Intelligence Solutions:

Address Verification Solutions

A business can make better decisions by utilizing Location Intelligence using such innovative technology as address verification solutions. This technology allows a business to optimize services, enrich their database creating visuals of a single address and the surrounding area, and geocoding multiple addresses of residential properties and businesses in the surrounding areas. The underlining strategy is to reach more customers and maintain current customers by using the information gathered to better analyze and implement marketing strategies in that area that will attract customers and gain a competitive edge over similar businesses in the area.

Geographic Information System (GIS) Solutions

At the heart of Location Intelligence is a Geographic Information System (GIS). This is a technological advanced system of gathering information and incorporating it for the purpose of storage, analysis, distribution, and demonstrating geographic information. GIS data can display such features as transportation networks, residential and commercial locations, elevations, terrain and other essential mapping features. A GIS will consist of a variety of mapping and data gathering technology such as remote sensing, aerial photography, land surveying, wide-ranging geographical mapping, address verification that includes postal codes, and more.

Demographic Analysis Solutions

As it relates to a business marketing strategy, businesses can use GIS systems to analyze demographic data to find regions to sell their products or services. It can help with the establishment of businesses and the state of the potential job candidates in the area. The objective of GIS is to identify new market trends from the analyzed research to grow marketing content. For instance, this can be achieved by acquiring previously unknown addresses in the location of interest which results in a customized customer prospect list. As well, it will efficiently manage address content by consolidating data to find common and contrasting addresses. As well, businesses are able to see important and relevant patterns emerging. Data collected using the Geographic Information System will help businesses acquire a better market picture much faster and easier.

Maximize Business Models

By blending applicable location content such as postal code mapping into current business strategies and workflows, location intelligence can help businesses optimize capital investments, improve compliance, and generate more revenue.

In today's competitive business world, it makes sense for a business to identify current trends using logistic location intelligence solutions because they are better able to determine what strategies need to be implemented, as well as develop better problem solving strategies. Location Intelligence gives companies the ability to unlock their business value by leveraging location content which results in improved business performance.

Management Consultants - Global Expansion Consulting Firms - Executive Recruiting - Management Recruiting - A Must Read

By James Scott

Many times companies stand at the threshold of massive stardom but carry the burden of dead weight management that simply take up space and increase salary costs. The company needs to eliminated them and recruit qualified management but there is often an emotional element at play here which makes it difficult to take the garbage out to the curb on trash collection day.

There are many corporate cautionary tales here. Companies that could have been but never were are a dime a dozen because they lacked the motivation to get past that emotional ingredient that paralyzes them, not allowing them to fire someone who has become a buddy. Your mind will play all kinds of tricks on you by telling you that: this guy has a family, you and he have a history, you can't just fire someone who helped build this company and so on. What you are forgetting here is that the presence of this individual is jeopardizing the careers and livelihood of everyone else involved so this action of elimination is serving the greatest good.

Make things easy on yourself. Hire a management or expansion consultant. These people are use to being labeled as the bad guy and have thick skin allowing them to cut through the emotional BS and capture the reality of what will help your company get to the next level. They will make their decision on professional pedigree, executive contact portfolio, who can handle themselves best in a public or panel discussion setting, who has the most desirable track record for attracting the best executive candidates and so on.

Often times companies that find themselves at this crossroad are in the process of going public which is even more of a reason to hire an expansion consultant as they will apply your business to a proven template that will yield success, if your buddy needs to be eliminated and replaced they will be able to demonstrate the reasons why with empirical data and they will give you the profile of a candidate that is ideal for his replacement.

To attract the proper replacement for a 'C', 'VP' or executive level professional you should bate them with stock and if possible pre IPO stock. Corporate shares and a solid compensation price will often get the right people through the door for an interview.

The stock should be a combination of restricted and non restricted and their acceptance of the non restricted demonstrates their intent on longevity with your company and non restricted shares demonstrate trust by you, stating that you're willing to put a little more skin in the game in order to bring on the right talent.

A management recruiter is not typically what is needed for the above situation. A management consultant or an international expansion consulting firm can typically offer a turn-key solution to your corporate recruiting efforts as well as your expansion and IPO aspirations.

Public Reverse Merger - Reverse IPO - Public Company Merger -

By James Scott

If you are trying to raise capital with a PPM or public entity like OTCBB you need to understand the mind of the investor. After the business plan sells the investor on the business concept you need to sell them on you and your executive staff. You need to stack your executive positions with professionals with a proven track record of success and possess a solid reputation in the industry. You must paint the picture for investors that your business is run by the who's who in your industry and this pedigree is demonstrated by your education, degree, grades in college, professional organizations of which you have been and are currently a member, advisory board positions with other corporate organizations, a track record of setting up and maintaining strategic alliances, networking contacts and more.

When an investor looks at your human resource list on your PPM, business plan or public offering docs it needs to scream power, authority and confidence. Each individual that you place on your advisory board must have a massive contribution other than 'advice'. Advisors should be able to prove their ability to assist in crucial decisions, connect your company with strategic partners and help you get to the next level.

Your legal counsel and CPA should be well known organizations with a long list of successful, well known organizations on their client roster and they should have a lot more to offer your company than just their fee based services. Again, these organizations should be able to set you up with partnerships that will help grow your business. As far as corporate awareness you must include a publicist. The publicist that you choose must be well versed in their comprehension of your industry genre.

They must be able to take your company and get you in front of the proper audience that is conducive to enhancing your growth potential. They must be able to demonstrate their knowledge of viral online marketing as well as traditional means of radio, TV and article promotion. They should be able to reach into their contact list and set you up with one interview after another targeting your specific audience.

These are just a few things to take into consideration when you jump on the fund raising trail. Every individual you have listed on your docs must be able to pass due diligence and have the appeal that reaches into the 'comfort' zone portion of the investor's mind.

Picking A Corporate CPA Or Accountant - It's More Than Just Numbers

By James Scott

I was recently on a conference call with a new client and their accountant who insisted on meeting with me because he wanted to pre qualify me. After a few questions when I was setting up the call I could tell right away that this accountant was a pure amateur and was trying to look like the 'big dog' to his clients, being one who invites and enjoys confrontation I took on the meeting. I love negotiating and debating on topics in which I'm well versed so I knew this would be fun.

The call started with the accountant jumping in to take control of the conversation and asked me if I wouldn't mind explaining what I am planning to do for this client. From beginning to end, this individual was completely out of his element as he's never had direct contact with an IPO or Global strategies facilitator or someone with international legislative contacts to put to work on behalf of the client to expedite growth and revenues.

After my brief 30 second presentation there was silence on the other end of the line which typically means the opposing party cant intellectually formulate a response due to the sheer lack of experience in this field. So then I continued but instead of a presentation, I became concerned that I was getting involved in a project that had flees and I may need to step away if too many unqualified people were involved.

I proceeded to ask him the following questions that any consultant should ask of a person who claims to be an insider with your client. "How big is your accounting practice"...2000+ clients he boasts. My next question was "Wow! Great then please give me the breakdown of the inter-client base strategic partnerships you have created on behalf of this client to speed up their growth and increase their revenues?" He couldn't respond because he didn't know what strategic alliances were. I continued, being that this company has been trying to raise capital for over a year, with 2,000 clients obviously you have access to accredited investors, how much money have you raised and what SEC approved vehicle did you use to distribute shares for equity?" again, there was silence on the other end of the line. This was the way the entire call went which demonstrated to my client that they will obviously have to break out of that relationship for and experienced accounting firm who understands how to work with clients in expansion mode.

When you hire an accountant to do the books for your company, of course you want to make sure that they can perform the general tasks of numbers but you also need to evaluate their current client base and their track record for setting up partnerships between their clients? An accountant who doesn't network his client base isn't worth the fee. In this economic environment you need to choose your accounting professionals based off of strict criteria.

You don't need a number cruncher. You need a number crunching networking executive with a strong and influential contact base to set up round table meetings, make introductions and help grow your company. Anyone with a general comprehension of tax law, book keeping and QuickBooks can be an accountant but few are able to facilitate all the additional services needed for an expanding corporation. You should pick an accounting firm based off of 10% expertise, 30% fees and 60% contacts and track record for helping expanding companies. Don't settle for anything less.

How To Tune Your Windows Vista Operating System For Performance

By Leo Sanders

Windows Vista has many different effects and features that makes it very unique. The only problem is that the same features that makes it so unique are the same things that are usually robbing it of resources - resources that you could be using to get more done in less time. For the purpose of this article I'm going to show you two ways to make your Windows Vista perform a bit faster but the down side to this is that you are going to have to sacrifice some of Vista's looks to get a resource boost. For the most part, the average user has absolutely no use for any of Vista's fancy looks so you should be just fine when you remove them.

If you are using the Ultimate, Home Premium, Enterprise or Business version of Vista then you probably have the Aero effect turned on (unless you have already turned it off manually). The Aero effect makes your operating system have a glass like effect on the windows which looks good but really serves no purpose to the end user (end user being you). The Aero effect also has another feature called Windows Flip 3D which is a fancy version of the Alt + Tab combination which allows you to flip through your open programs. To activate the Window Flip 3D, open a few programs, hold down the windows button and press the Tab button a few times. You should see your open programs rotate in a fancy way. These features really serve no purpose to the average person so here's how to get rid of them:

What your going to want to do now is to click Start, click on the Control Panel and then on the left hand side make sure that the Control Panel Home is selected. Now click on Appearance and Personalize, click on the Personalize link, click on the Windows Color and Appearance and at the bottom of the window select "Open classic appearance properties for more color options". A new window should appear and in this window where it has the Color Scheme drop down box just select Windows Vista Basic. Now click Apply and then OK and this should turn off the Aero effect.

One of the biggest features that Vista has that is pretty much useless is the sidebar. Unless you are actually using the Windows gadgets on the sidebar regularly then its probably best that you get rid of it. It literally serves no purpose to the average user except to make your computers desktop look nice. Here's the process:Right click on the windows sidebar icon in the System Tray and select the properties option from the drop down menu ( if your not sure what the system tray is, its that little group of icons in the bottom right hand corner). Now, in the Windows Sidebar Properties dialog box uncheck the box that says "Start Sidebar when Windows Starts" and select Apply and then OK. Now just right click on the Windows Sidebar Icon in the system tray again and select Exit.

By performing both of these procedure you will be able to free up your computer of some of its resources. This should speed up your computer a bit, but don't expect any drastic improvements here - we only touched on a small part of your computer that needs to be tuned up, there is a lot more can still be done.

A Piece Of Blarney Stone" 10 Ways To Add Force To Your Communication (2)

By Abraham Saleh

5. Jesting around

A little bit of joking can do wonders to lift the tension, or worse boredom when making your speech. That way, you'll get the attention of the majority of the crowd and they'll feel that you're just as approachable, and as human to those who listen.

6. Act similarly like them

Relations is all about coming together with the community. You'll get a lot of thoughts, as well as recognizing what people make them as they are.

7. I, Me, and Myself

Acknowledge it, there are times you sing to yourself in the bathroom. I know I do! Listening to the sound of your own voice while you practice your speech in front of a mirror can help correct the stress areas of your pitch. And while you're at it you can improve as well.

8. With a grin

A smile says it all much like eye contact. There's no point on grimacing or frowning in a meeting or a gathering, unless it's a wake. You can better express what you're saying when you smile.

9. An Exemplar

You should have listened to at least one or two people in your life when they're at a civic gathering or maybe at house of worship. In no doubt they read their lines, but taking a mental note of how they highlight what they say can aid you once you take center stage.

10. Homework

Some people like to note things down on index cards, whereas other resort to being a little more silly as they look at their notes written on the palm of their hand (not for sticky hands, right?). Just be at ease with what you know given that you enjoy your work. Make the best out of preparation rather than just scribbling notes and often in a hasty fright.

And that about wraps it up. These suggestions are rather amateurish in edgewise, but I've learned to empower myself when it comes to public or private speaking and it never hurts to be with people to listen how they make conversations and meetings far more enjoyable as well as educational.

The Basic Of Cell Phone Advertising & Promoting

By Carteen Array

Everybody you know most likely has a cellular phone and makes use of it almost every moment of day. Consumers use their mobile phones to chat, text, search on the internet, get directions, listen to music and also watch videos.

Right now it's possible to use that similar cell phone to market to other people via cellphone promoting. If you have never heard of or your just unsure of what this cell phone promoting is all about. Let me explain the concept.

I think by today everyone understands about internet marketing and how they can make use of the concepts to make income. Well right now you can do the same thing with cell phones. The concept of finding products to promote to people who are already in the market for them is the similar, it is just the instrument that you are applying is different.

As an example, normal person may get started with internet marketing with a domain and a website. With the phone concept all you need is your cell phone, a great product or perhaps service to advertise and some quality content for the message.

At this time you may be thinking to yourself, this can not be true. We have never received any kind of message on my mobile phone in regards to someone marketing a product or service. And you are probably right, this strategy has a small amount of competition currently.

However, after each supplier on the market understands how easy and simple it is to have their information out, competition might be huge and you start to see more and more marketing done via that lovely cell.

The future is so bright for cellular phone marketing that you will have to wear shades. Let me show you why, now there is anywhere between 3 and 4 billion individuals who are using these cellular devices for just about everything. Meaning that these billions of people are constantly on their phones for some reason or perhaps the other.

Wouldn't be good if during the course of their usage they receive a message from you about one of the products that could help them with one of their needs? Hence we have marketing and advertising via the cell mobile phone.

Getting Investors Clara Furse London Stock Exchange - Exchange Alley London

By James Scott

Entrepreneurs are being turned onto Regulation D in droves. Regulation D Rule 504, 505 and 506 allow companies a more lenient fund raising process than those who choose to go public by other means. In the past year I've seen more PPM consultants pop up on the internet than ever before and I have to admit I'm concerned. As a veteran in this field I've seen it all, now we have a legion of self proclaimed Reg. D gurus who buy templates, add some text and tell their clients that they are delivering a customized offering memorandum; here's where things go bad and a difficult situation gets even worse. You have this worthless document, now what?

You need to gain the confidence and capital of accredited investors without soliciting as dictated in Regulation D Rule 502c. Now you have a worthless document that you can't solicit investment capital for (which your guru consultant never told you but took your cash anyway) so how are you suppose to raise funds for your company? First, you'll find that you'll eventually need to make your way to an actual PPM author, not a broker so that you can get a PPM that protects you from lawsuits and gives the investor a real breakdown of the upside and downside of your business.

Next you'll need to find a "Investor Finder", yes this is an actual term for an individual or corporate entity that is completely submerged in the accredited investor realm and is able to match your opportunity with friends that he/she has in their database of real, accredited investors. This is the second half of the PPM equation.

Don't kid yourself and don't allow yourself to be lied to; you're going to need a seasoned professional to help introduce you to investors that have the capital to help you get to where you need to be. Friends, family and employees will commit to investing in your company until your PPM is completed and it's time to make good on their commitment; all of a sudden little Johnny needs braces and Sally is in the hospital with pneumonia, this happens all the time. Now what? With a real Private Placement Memorandum and a solid Investor Finder you're problems are basically over. Investigate where the author and I.F. stand in the Internet public domain and after you find a company that meets your needs, get moving and start raising capital.

The internet tells all when it comes to reputations, you'll be able to tell the difference between a seasoned veteran and a startup consultant after on Google Search and a phone call. A PPM can make raising capital quick and easy if you have the right firm in your corner.

Throw Away Those High Phone Bills Forever

By Brian Lakeman

Have you ever taken a look at your phone bill, and tried to change things around to get a lower rate, only to find that you can not escape this large monthly cost. If this sounds familiar, then keep reading because there is still hope for your current situation.

There are many that have replaced their home phones for cell phones, although their are others that are not comfortable with this choice and for them VOIP provides a reasonable solution. VOIP enables you to have something much like a phone line, without the large bills that are associated with that type of service.

Many are wearisome about making the switch to an internet phone service, because it is unfamiliar and there is the potential for a lot of changes. For starters you may be required to get a new phone number, with a new local exchange. Then there is the concern about the clarity of the service as well as outages.

The main reason that so many are making the switch to VOIP is because of the substantial difference in cost. With a regular land line service you will pay an average of $150 a month. For the VOIP service you will be able to save over $100, as the cost of service averages around $30 a month. This is a savings that many do not want to pass up, and one that makes many willing to give VOIP service a try.

Despite the fears associated with switching to a VOIP service, it is an effective service with good quality and provides a reduction in the monthly expenses. The reduction in cost is the cause of the large increase in individuals switching to the service. Many individuals feel that they have nothing to loss, as they can easily switch back if they are unhappy with the service.

How Can I Get Unlocked Cell Phone?

By James Keyes

In the US and many of the European countries, the majority of the cell phones that are sold are locked; they are being sold with a contract that guarantees that the phone will only work with a specific provider; unlocked cell phone, which can be purchased from third party retailers or online stores works with any service provider, as long as it supports the technology used by that provider.

Owning unlocked cell phone has many advantages, but quite a few disadvantages as well - there is a significant price difference between the locked and unlocked phones and in the most cases the latter are a few hundred dollars more expensive. If you travel frequently oversees, then you would most certainly want to purchase unlocked cell phone - instead of making phone calls via roaming, which can be pricey, you can simply purchase a prepaid SIM card from the country that you are visiting and pay less for your local calls.

If you want to be able to switch easily from one provider to another, you can purchase your unlocked cell phone from numerous web sites as well; online you can find most models and makes unlocked and in many cases at a very reasonable price. Another way to get yourself an unlocked cell phone is to ask your provider for the code that unlocks it; in the US some providers will give you the code only after the end of your contract with them, while others will send it to you as long as you have been with them for more than 90 days and you don't have any outstanding bills. However, the carriers aren't required by law to send you the code. Unlocking a phone can also be done with the help of software that is either sold or can be downloaded for free, but this might be illegal or disable many of your cell phone's features.

You cannot find every make or model as an unlocked cell phone though: certain cell phone and smartphone manufacturers have signed exclusive deals with some of the big carriers, allowing their products to be sold only locked.

In conclusion, we would like to point out that buying unlocked cell phone will definitely cost you more since you will have to pay the full retail price; in addition the unlocked cell phone might not support all the features, offered by your service provider, in most cases GPS services, 3G networking, sending picture or video messages, etc.; convincing your services provider to install their software on your phone might not be an easy task. However, owning an unlocked cell phone will give you the freedom to switch easily from one provider to another and possibly reduce your monthly bills since you can always go to the provider that charges less. Unlocked cell phone can also come with dual SIM card adaptor, which will let you switch between providers with the touch of a button, without having to physically replace the SIM cards inside the handset.

Dentist Marketing Together With Dental Care Assistant Course Acceptance

By Phillip Guye

Dentist marketing assistant is one of the quickest growing professions. It is anticipated to be one of the top occupations by 2012. Almost all Dental Assistant programs demand applicants to successfully pass a background check prior to acceptance. Additionally, drug screening is becoming a widely frequent practice as well. Most states require trainees to be examined for Hepatitis B just before acceptance as well.

Many plans would like to check out your job history, education level, and GPA. These components combined will decide if you're accepted into a Dentist marketing assistant Program. You'll get a notification telling you of the decision. If you're not taken into the Dental Assistant Program, you have the right to ask as to the information that decision was determined by.

The reason for background record checks for Dental Assistants is because of the number of individuals these people come into contact with. Given that they will serve the public, their history turns into an area of interest. Safety factors are a top consideration within the dental care discipline. Precautions are taken to guard the patients as well as the other personnel.

The background procedure is quite similar in all states. You will be required to supply your individual information as well as fingerprints. All data that comes back will be announced to the program director. Each state has different levels of acceptable background record checks for the Dentist marketing assistant Program.

Should you believe your background may prevent you from getting accepted into a Dentist marketing assistant Program, ask the instructor or even the State Dental Board what the polices are for your own specific state. In some states, they'll simply look at background details that are less than 7 years of age. Others will only ban you from the Dental Assistant program if you have been convicted of a criminal offense that involved violence or was of a sexual nature. Other states are very strict. If you've any kind of felony convicts whatsoever, you won't be accepted for the Dental Assistant program. They also will look at misdemeanors including harassment and domestic violence.

Background record checks are a continuing concern with Dentist marketing assistants. You could complete the training program and your license test. Your license will be valid for three to five years depending on the state you live in. Upon renewal, an additional background check will be completed.

China Export Products - Expand To China Fast

By James Scott

With global economics the way they are it would be redundant to rant and rave about the downsides of corporate fund-raising. Quick infusions of cash from venture capital firms and institutional lenders are on hold and it is what it is but companies are becoming creative and corporate attention is steering away from the problems and toward the solutions.

The US and Chinese markets are intertwined in many ways and now a new trend in finance is making the relationship even closer. It's a fact that Chinese corporations are still trying to figure out how to make their domestic stock market profitable and stable. Many of these companies have global ambitions with unique technology solutions business products and strategies but because of the week Chinese economy (compared to the power of other currencies) they have no choice but to head to the Frankfurt Exchange or the OTCBB market here in the United States.

As a corporate consultant that facilitates the process of going public for both domestic and global entities I have received maybe 5 to 10 calls per year from Chinese companies wanting to set up American corporate subsidiaries to absorb their foreign corporations and trade on the Bulletin Boards but all that has changed. I now receive 5 to 10 calls from Chinese and Indian companies per week to take advantage of the global market place that centers around America's gravitational pull.

Here is how you can take your foreign entity public: set up a domestic corporation (I usually have corporations set up in Delaware because its fast, easy and the states statutes go back to the original 13 colonies so there is sufficient case law and precedence to protect a public entity affectively). Next you will need a professionally written business plan in English. Translated business plans don't work as Western investors look for different details in transactions than their Asian counterparts. Write a new business plan based off of this new corporate entity.

After this you will use the Regulation D Rule 504 exemption to offer discounted stock to a core group of investors via DPO (direct public offering) we have spent 11 years putting our core group of investors together that can finance around 80% of the public process so it becomes extremely reasonably priced for foreign companies. Then the S1 is put together while simultaneously their SEC audit begins which is simple and fast because the company in the US is a startup. We go through and get the SEC approval, then FINRA and then the market maker that we have attached to the deal goes to work.

Now here is the kicker. If you have any experience with taking companies public you'll see one common thread throughout all the companies that you work with and that is the fact that the company executives who started this company and are more than likely the majority share holders, want to retain as much equity as possible so this is simple. When the company is publicly trading, limit the issuance of stock specifically to your original core group and let the stock price stabilize then you simply take some of the company owned shares and use them as collateral for equity loans and lines of credit.

Once you're public the last thing you want to do is liquidate shares to raise capital quickly. Instead, use your shares as collateralized bartering chips and you'll never have a problem with cash flow or fund raising or the threat of losing control of your company. Foreign companies that want to go public in the United States are often intimidated by the strenuous process and the concern of 'who to trust'. Find a consulting firm with experience in turnkey 'go public' facilitation and you'll be fine.
