It is highly important to know your rate of different taxes you need to pay when your a business owner. Being a business owner and not knowing what you are paying can be bad for the entrepreuneur. An entrepreneurs need to know what amount in GST, PST HST they are paying.  If you don’t know what you are paying in taxes, then that can lead to paying for something that you shouldn’t have to. Also “make sure you have a good tax program on your computer and get a taxer to do your taxes” as Marlene  Grant said. She gave us alot of advice on taxes and how to file them right and to know which taxes are the ones that would apply to you based on your business.

so as far as e-commerce and i go, we are not the best of friends in the internet world. E-commerce how i know it is work related transitions done electronically throught the internet because the business owner and the buyer.  For e-commerce for entrepreneurs, i would think it would be a good idea to be knowledgable in e-commerce and use it on a regualr basis.

E-commerce in a business as I have found seems to me aas the new way to go. It seems as one of the new trends that business professionals and business owners use. I can only imagine how much easier it would be for all new business owners to make transactions between different customers and everything being online makes it so much easier for business entrepreneurs to have many customers all over the world.

Personal branding is the process whereby people and their careers are marked as brands.

Your personal brand is a very important thing to promote yourself/company name. I’ve learnt alot about branding in my adverting/marketing class, that without a brand your really nobody in the world of promoting yourself. With a brand you have a way to promtoe yourself, show who you are as a person and as a company mainly. To show what your standards are, who you are as in character of company, and what you do at your company.

I did alot of research on branding and found that it just doesn’t take two minutes to find your brand. As I originally thought it would, well boy was i ever wrong. Especially for a freelance company like what i do. A brand is more important than ever, as well as networking, and social media practices.

On a final note check out this video on how to brand yourself and how it makes as small as people on the internet who have made it big on the internet.

Legal Partnership….

“An association of two or more persons engaged in a business enterprise in which the profits and losses are shared proportionally. The legal definition of a partnership is generally stated as “an association of two or more persons to carry on as co-owners a business for profit”

 

now that, that is defined i think it would be a good idea to have a partnership if you are a sole priprietor in your business and it would help with ideas, and business related issues and what not. For myself being a freelance Graphic Designer i would definetly become a sole priprietor it’s the cheapest and best way for me to have a sucessful business and still make money!.

As a business owner you really need to know where you stand in a legal form, so you know what your rights are as a company owner and as a sbusiness professional. To know your legal rights is very important in case anything ever happens that needs legal action, you are prepared and know who to talk to and where to get the best advice in how to procceed.

Etiquette is a set of practices and forms which are followed in a wide variety of situations; many people consider it to be a branch of decorum, or general social behavior. Each society has its own distinct etiquette, and various cultures within a society also have their own rules and social norms. Learning etiquette can be very challenging for people who are new to a particular culture, and even old hands sometimes have a rough time.
