what’s In A Name – Just Your Business Survival!

Business SurvivalWhat’s so important about how I sign my name?”

I get asked that question all of the time from my business consulting clients.

I tell them that a better question to ask me is this:

“Who cares about how I sign my name?”

The answer is a simple one.

NOBODY.

FINE PRINT: Except… your customers and clients, your creditors, your bank, your mortgage company, your landlord, the I.R.S… oh yes… and anyone else that wants to SUE YOU (and don’t forget ALL their lawyers!).

As in many areas of the law, the exception to the rule swallows up the rule!

What do I mean by this?

Well, let’s start with some basics. For instance, if you’ve already formed a corporation or limited liability company (LLC), you may think that you’re already protected from personal liability in the event of a lawsuit against your business.

In general, the rule is that a corporation or LLC, if formed correctly, and if all of the formalities required under the law of the State where the entity was formed are followed, does protect you from personal liability for business debts and lawsuits.

FINE PRINT: Except… when you choose to do business as an individual, and not as the corporation or LLC that you initially formed.

You see, whenever you sign documents like contracts, purchase orders, contractual agreements, leases, loans, mortgages, promissory notes, and most other legal documents involving your business, you need to make sure that you sign your name only in your business capacity.

You MUST avoid signing your name in your individual capacity.

And how do you do that? It’s pretty simple. You see, the format that you use to sign your name is the controlling factor.

In many cases, you as the business owner, sign your name without knowing how to properly sign your name to business documents. In fact, most business owners of corporations and LLC’s still sign legally binding agreements in their individual capacity…and not as the business.

SIGN AS AN AGENT OF YOUR BUSINESS

If you have formed a corporation or an LLC, you must remember to sign all contracts, agreements, invoices, etc… as an agent of the business.

For example… Many business owners haphazardly, or perhaps inadvertently, sign legal documents like the format shown in

EXAMPLE 1 below:

EXAMPLE 1

(signature)
————————
John Doe

“But what is the consequence of signing my name like in EXAMPLE 1 above to invoices, agreements, or documents?”

EXAMPLE 1 and the above signature format legally establishes that YOU have signed the contract, invoice, loan, or agreement as an individual.

And not as an agent on behalf of your business.

If you sign your name to agreements in the form depicted in EXAMPLE 1 above, YOU could very well be liable personally to meet all of the terms of the agreement.

And you likely don’t want to do this!

Why Simply out, because you’re therefore subjecting all of your business assets and personal assets as well to the risk of a lawsuit.

If you sign agreements as depicted in EXAMPLE 1 above, YOU will very likely be named personally, as well as your business, in any lawsuit filed against the business.

Remember then:

Signing your name like in EXAMPLE 1 above DOES NOT establish that you have signed the agreement as an agent on behalf of your business.

“Okay. So how should I sign my name to my invoices, contracts, leases, loans, or any other business agreements?

What simple step can I take to protect my business, and my personal assets as well?

SIGN DOCUMENTS ONLY AS AN AGENT OF YOUR BUSINESS

Make sure that you only sign legal documents, letters, memos, invoices, loans, leases, etc… as an agent of your business.

How must I sign my name to any legal document or agreement to show that I am signing only as an agent of my business?

Follow EXAMPLE 2 below:

EXAMPLE 2

ABC CORPORATION, INC.

(signature)
———————————–
BY: John Doe
President (Company Title)

If you sign your name on the dotted line following the exact format depicted in Example 2 above, you legally establish that you are only signing as an agent on behalf of the business…and not in your individual capacity.

But you MUST follow the Example 2 precisely.

CAVEAT: Another very important point on this topic.

AVOID SIGNING documents that state “PERSONAL GUARANTY” on them.

A Personal Guaranty is usually a separate legal document attached to the main agreement. You generally see a Personal Guaranty in a loan, mortgage, or lease. However, sometimes a Personal Guaranty can be established just by the way you sign the legal document, invoice, lease, or agreement.

How?

Simple. If the agreement merely has a signature line that has your individual name on it without any reference to your business name, you are signing the document as a Personal Guaranty. You are therefore personally liable for that agreement if you sign the agreement with such a signature line.

But, what do I do if I am being required to sign a Personal Guaranty, like for a business loan or commercial lease for example?

If a Personal Guaranty is required, you or your lawyer should negotiate a limited period of time (the shortest possible) that the Personal Guaranty will bind you as an individual.

Remember, if you formed a corporation or LLC in the first place, you did it to avoid personal liability and to protect your personal assets. Anyone who does business with your company should, and usually does, know this. So, be careful. Other possibilities can be negotiated too. Just do your best not to sign in your personal capacity by signing a Personal Guaranty.

It’s important to remember to only sign legal documents, invoices, and even letters as an agent of your business. (Follow the format found in EXAMPLE 2 above).

How else can I make sure that I am signing my name properly to all of my business documents?

Call your attorney to review all of your agreements, invoices, leases, and legal documents BEFORE you sign them. Your attorney will offer sound advice that protects YOU, your loved ones, and your business.

Now, let’s review.

What’s in a name?

Well… besides your business…

…it could be all of YOUR personal and family assets!

The best advicve especially in the midst of tough economic times or a Recession, is to have any document you sign first reviewed by your lawyer or business consultant.

Good Business Habits

Business HabitsLet me tell you straight, you cannot be a successful business person if you don’t have good business habits. Below I have listed a few habits that you should be doing if you wanted to be a successful business person!

1.) Are you committed to every business you have?

Opening a business is easy but maintaining its operation will take a lot of you time. Will you be available in creating marketing plans and promotional materials? Business without marketing plans is suicide. Once you start a business, put every attention to it. Don’t let your employees manage it. Take note of this, you are the only person who has vision for its success so its only you who can make it
grow.

2.) Are you continuously searching for opportunities?

Business people don’t just stick on 1 or 2 business. A business person always searches for more business opportunities. They are not mediocre. They don’t want stable business but rather a growing one. Always search for new ideas to pursue.. A business person has a vision for numerous income streams for profits!

3.) Do you think positive about you business?

A business person don’t pursue a business to which he/she doesn’t feel positive about. Once you start a business, don’t fill your mind with any negative thoughts. Problems may come your way but it will always have a solution. Business people don’t think of failures, always success behind every problem.

4.) Do you share the business vision?

You can’t survive on your own. You may be skillful at some point but it can’t make you very successful. A business person shares a business vision, to someone else, to a possible business partner. If a single business person can earn $1000 a month, then 2 person can earn $2000 a month. Simple logic but its reality. You can earn more as long as you share same vision with someone else.

5.) Do you delegate tasks?

Normally, every business person only thinks of opportunities and its corresponding marketing campaigns. It will not be healthy if the business person will also do the action of implementation. He will be dead meat if he/she will put every burden unto their shoulders. In fact, employees purpose is to put every plan into action, right?

6.) Do you create a good public image?

People are very sympathetic. They support the business whom they like the owner. Whether you like it or not,if people like your attitude and way of doing business, they will support you. But if you look like a bad boy or a person who looks down and criticizes people, believe me, you will loose every customer you’ve got!

Start creating a good public image. Help support the community where you belong. Extend some help to those in need. Don’t act as if what’s the only thing important to you is your profits and earnings. Make the public see that you care.

Ways To Finance Your Vending Machine Business

Business MachineWhen starting a business, theres that one big wall that block your way, and thats your startup money. Without money to fund your business, there will be no business at all. So how and where can you get money? Read on to get some ideas on where you can find funding sources for your vending business:

Home Equity Loan
Most people immediately think of getting a standard business loan when thinking of financing a home business or business startup. While this may be appropriate, do not fail to consider using your home as a bank.

Small Business Administration Loan
Banks administer this loan and are more favorable to this type than a standard bank loan because they are only liable for 15% of what they loan (the government carries the other 85%). There are a number of types of documentation required with this loan, but it is certainly worth the trouble if you are willing to follow the process.

Standard Bank Financing
This financial source is probably the most difficult, yet not impossible with good credit and some net worth. Banks typically do not look favorably at vending machine loans and consider them risky because they are not considered a fixed asset.

Invest Your Tax Return Money
For a lot of people, April 15th is bonus time every year as they receive tax returns with earned income credit and deductions for kids. You can use this to slowly build your vending business. Its a great, safer way to build your business.

Family Loan
In some cases, a family member may be favorable to loaning you the money for starting your home-based business. While there may be relationship risks to this setup, it needs to be considered as an alternative to standard business financing. Some family members would rather invest in your business vision and draw a little interest rather than lending it to a bank at 2-3%.

Sell Items You Dont Need
If you badly need to create an income steam, opt for this least popular fund source. How about downsizing your car and investing the money in machines? Why not have a huge yard sale to raise $500-$1000? Why dont you downsize your home and invest your profits in the business? All of us have some money around us in our life that we could put to work.

Lease Purchasing
An option to getting into the vending business is to make an offer to buy an established vending route by lease-purchasing. You agree to lease the route from the seller with an option to buy at the end of the lease period. You invest your profits from the lease period into the purchase of the business or you can continue leasing for the cash flow you are receiving. Remember to get legal help in setting up any contractual agreement like this.

Owner Financing
Not that always easy to find but dont let it stop your from asking the seller of a vending route for it, especially if you have some money to put down.

Powerful Methods To Stay Successful In Business

Successful BusinessIn business, achieving success is merely half the battle won. The other half? As many veteran businessmen would agree, sustaining success  staying on top of your game and on top of THE game  is the more difficult part of owning and operating a commercial enterprise.

Case in point: flash-in-the-pan businesses are a dime a dozen these days. Overnight successes are stories that are quite commonplace. But businesses that last for years, if not decades? Alas, theyre rarities in this day and age!

The goal isnt merely to succeed in business. The goal should be to remain successful in business.
Here are 5 powerful principles to live by if you want to achieve such a goal:

1. Believe in your business. Your business is bound to encounter many challenges and many tribulations along the way. Some of these trials would be grave enough to make you consider quitting. But should you? Remember: if you dont believe in your business, if you dont believe that it can succeed, then why should your prospective customers believe that your business is the right choice for them? Your faith in your business will go a long, long way in pushing it to reach its fullest potentials.

2.Find satisfaction in what youre doing. If you do not find contentment in what youre doing, then its just a matter of time before you give up on your business. Fulfillment can be attained in so many ways. If you cannot find that sense of fulfillment from your business, its either because: a) youre not looking hard enough; or b) youre looking at the wrong place. The smallest victory can be a cause for celebration. And the tiniest of triumphs can even provide the biggest kind of satisfaction.

3.Make your customers satisfaction your primary goal. Profit is good, but it shouldnt be the driving force of your business if you want your success to last. The happiness of your customers should be your paramount concern. Remembers, happy customers are customers for life.

4.Strive to improve your craft and your trade. Never rest on your laurels. Always try to be the best you can ever be when it comes to the things you do for a living.

5.Have fun! They say that the best kind of moneymaking opportunity is one that you enjoy doing. If you will find such a business, then youve hit the jackpot. Now, no one said that this jackpot cant be created. You can find enjoyment in what youre doing. Even if the business wasnt born from a hobby you once nurtured, you can still find ways by which you can make it very exciting and very enticing for you. Your enthusiasm for your business will eventually show in the products you will deliver.

Different Strategic Levels In A Business Organization

Business OrganizationA business strategy defines the direction in which a business will take in the future. The business organization tries to achieve an advantage over the competition by the configuration of its resources within a confronting setting so that the needs of the market are met and the expectations of its stockholders are fulfilled. This is the overall definition of a business strategy. This focuses a business organization on which market it should engage in and the activities that are needed to compete in that particular market for the business to grow.

In making a business strategy, the planners need to determine how the organization can outperform its competition in a particular market niche. These are the advantages of the company which it needs to utilize, in order to gain the upper hand. In this connection, the right resources that the company can utilize should be gained, in order to maintain its competitive advantage. These resources will include the skills, various company assets, relationships, facilities and technical competence. As an organization plan how to manage its resources, it should also take into consideration the environment in which it is to operate. These are the external factors which can have an effect on the ability of a business organization to compete. Furthermore, the hope and values of its stakeholders should also be taken into account on the overall business strategy.

Though there is an overall strategy which a business organization enforces, there are different levels in a business setting where particular strategies are implemented. First there is the so called corporate strategy. In this particular strategy level, the focus is on the overall purpose and coverage of the organization to meet the expectations of its stockholders. This is crucial to the company since it has a great influence on its investors and guides the strategic decision making all through the company. A corporate business strategy is posted for all to see in the mission statement of a company.

Next in importance to the corporate strategy would be the business unit strategy of a particular business organization. A business unit strategy is mainly concerned with how a business can compete in its chosen market niche. The decisions which are the focus of attention in a business unit level are about meeting the needs of its costumers, choice of products, gaining advantage on the competition and the creation and exploitation of new opportunities.

The next level of business strategy which a business organization focuses on is the operational strategy of the company. At this level, the focus is on how each segment of the business can be systematized so as to give the direction to the business unit strategy. The consideration is on processes, people, resources and other such concerns. Various business organizations have their own strategies which they see are most advantageous to the company. They each implement safeguards to guarantee that strategic goals and objectives are met and vigorously implemented and followed by each member of the team.

Small Business Coaching Undermining Your Credibility With This

A business owner recently sent me an email inviting me to partner with him on one of his projects. I get a few requests like that a month. The venture seemed like a good one as I read his description.

I was about to have my assistant follow up until I hit this credibility-undermining flaw and guess what my response was? I was no longer interested. But I wondered if this poor guy even knew that he was undermining his own credibility. Unfortunately, too many business owners make this mistake. And you can correct it in literally 5 minutes for less than $10.

What’s the mistake you ask?

As professional as this small business owner sounded, and as interesting as his product was, I closed the door when I saw @gmail.com in his email address. It raised some doubt, not to mention what preceded the @gmail.com wasn’t exactly professional either.

The reality is free email services don’t exactly scream “success” if you know what I mean and you’d certainly want your business communication to reflect your true professionalism. When business owners use gmail, yahoo, and all those other freebie emails, here’s what may come up in the mind of the email recipient: I wonder if they’re running their business more like a hobby than a real business. I wonder if they are taking their business seriously. I wonder if they plan to be in business very long.

Sadly, none of this is probably true, as the business owner may have chosen their email service for entirely valid reasons. But it’s important to know it may raise some doubt (albeit unnecessarily so at times). And by the way, even paid email services like comcast.net and others (that you’d normally use for family communication) may also undermine your credibility. There are many reasons people choose free email services, and I personally have yahoo and gmail accounts myself. That said, you’d want to consistently project the image of an established business. Your business email is one of the first things someone sees when you communicate with them. In your email communication, you’d want to remain congruent with your business name.

If you already have a website

For those of you who have a website and are still using free email services for business communication, hey, c’mon what’s up with that? 🙂 If you already have the website, why not use the email accounts that come with your domain? If you’re avoiding checking more than one email account, remember you can have all the emails sent to wherever you want to read them (but don’t make the mistake of replying to your business emails from your free email though). If you like the features of your free service, that’s OK, you can actually redirect your business emails to the free service (behind the scenes) if you like (again, just be sure the “reply to” email is your business email when you send responses).

Now if you’re avoiding getting added to email lists, I can certainly understand that. But why not set up a separate email under your own domain name instead? An address that’s meant to be a catch-all so nothing clutters your main business email account. Like “[emailprotected]” or “[emailprotected]” Your domain typically comes with the ability to set up several email addresses. I use GreatSmallBusinessWeb.com and I have almost a dozen different email addresses under my domain name. Some of them I rarely check as they are catch-all addresses.

If you don’t have a website

If you’re just now starting a home based business (bravo!), you can hop on over to Godaddy.com and fix that email credibility problem in the next 5 minutes. But please be careful at when you’re purchasing it. Read all the screens because when you go through the purchase process, you’ll get offered all sorts of additional stuff. Feel free to say no to whatever else they’re asking you to buy until you get to the end – unless you really want to buy all that stuff of course. (that’s my insider tip ;-))

That said, you most certainly would want a website as a business owner. That, my friend, may indeed be another credibility-buster. Folks, catch up will ya? We’re almost in 2010 here. 🙂 Careful with choosing website designers, however. You don’t want a multi-thousand dollar “brochure website” that looks real pretty but doesn’t generate any money for your business.

If you don’t know what domain name to purchase

Now for those of you who don’t know what domain name to buy, I hear ya. I went through that quandary myself a couple times. So here’s the workaround. Just buy yourname.com. For example, one of my many domains is allisonbabb.com. Then you can have an email like [emailprotected] or even [emailprotected]

You can immediately use the email accounts that are included with the domain purchase (weather you have a website or not). And you can redirect all those emails to wherever you’d prefer to read them. Just be sure you don’t accidentally reply to customers from your yahoo or gmail accounts, for example, if that’s where you’ll redirecting your emails. Again, try to stay congruent with your business name in your business communication.

Distribute Business Cards At The Right Opportune Moments

If you are starting up a new business, you will need to print business cards and other stationary items such as letterheads, envelopes and flyers. Take advantage of the huge industry that is now available online though you should take time to select a reliable and reputed online printing firm. It is important to read the reviews and be assured of the online printing firm before placing your valued order. Many printing firms may offer low prices but may not deliver the amount of cards that you order or the quality that you expect.

Since the first impression is generally the best, it is important to ensure that you project the right image when you hand over cards to prospective clients. Decide on whether you prefer the matte or glossy look as these cards look impressive as against the standard business cards. Look at the various types of special inks and finishes available and introduce a photographic image as a logo to depict the product or service. If you use metallic ink it will stand out impressively to highlight the logo or design. It is possible to coat an area of the card with spot UV coating as this will make a striking contrast when you use a matte finish for the rest of the area. Check the weight of the cards that you wish to order and remember that 14 and 16 point stock are definitely not as flimsy as 10 and 12 point stocks. The next criterion is to concentrate on the layout of the card. Give relevant details and try not to clutter the card with unnecessary information.

In an endeavor to save money, many people try to print their own cards. Some people may also resort to spreading the word when they start up a business. However these are not good marketing strategies to follow especially as they are many opportunities available online to print cheap business cards at very low prices. An important feature of marketing campaigns starts with printing of advertising materials. A business man will soon realize the value of using these insignificant cards when they see the results.

Before any major event or meeting, spend some time to decide whether your product or service will make an impact on the customers who will be attending the event. Spend some valuable time online to plan your marketing strategy. Use the free designer templates and tools available with most of the reputed online printing firms and plan the finish and style of your card. Provide the pertinent details and most importantly, your contact details. Talk to the people that attend the event and if you find that they show even the slightest interest in your product, hand them a card as this will make a good impression. You will not project your business in a good light if you scribble details on a piece of paper or write the contact details on one of the flyers. You will not feel the pinch when you distribute these cheap business cards that you have ordered from a reliable printing firm at a throw away price.
