It’s the small, less obvious things that can often have the biggest impact on successfully operating a business. As my friend Andrew experienced, a simple change in organization and bookkeeping software can have a dramatic, positive effect, often more so than other changes in regards to business practices.

import-exportAndrew is in the shipping business. His business incorporates a medium-sized warehouse from which he ships all sorts of goods to people all across Europe with some customers even in the US and in China.

There is obviously a lot of stock to manage and to organize, let alone the effort required to effective manage the amounts of paperwork and documents that come with this type of business.

Andrew had a consultant give him the advise to switch over to export management software and it didn’t take a month that his profits increased by over 18% which is entirely unheard of considering no other changes had been made.

It is clear that certain types of businesses can profit tremendously from industry specific applications, prime example would be shipping software or export software for all those who deal with shipments, import and export of merchandise. It can be a small company that sells via ebay or a large corporate that is actively involved with trades with Asia, there are almost always benefits when this type of software is used.

I can only advise all owners of small businesses to carefully consider their software choices. Rarely is standard software sufficient to operate at maximum efficiency. I recommend that you look at international export information to learn all about export software and how it can help your business.

Rough times for golf according to The Independent. Their article states how more and more Britons turn their back on this once very famous sport.

Scotland’s  593 golf clubs are trying to hold on to their members. According to new numbers  from the Scottish Golf Union golf memberships in the nation dropped 14 per cent between 2004 and 2013.

The Scottish Golf Unions’s deputy chief executive, Andy Salmon, said one reason for the decline is due to a shift away from club membership to “pay and play” by what calls “nomadic” golfers.

But it’s not only those players who are a reason for a decline in membership numbers. Overall participation has also declined.

As for England, club membership there dropped 20 per cent between 2004 and 2013 according to England Golf.

Matthew Uses Horse Racing Tips To Win At The Races

Matthew Uses Horse Racing Tips To Win At The Races

Of course, one thing I am always fascinated with ever since I live here is how the Brits really love to wager on all kinds of bets.

Alone on my street here in London there are several sports betting places close by.

I was meeting a guy, Matthew, last month who told me that he is making his entire living from horse racing.

He actually quit his job so he can fully dedicate to the races.

He must be doing something right since Matthew is far from a “loser”, he is actually very well off and this is mostly (as he told me) due to his winnings at the races.

When I talked with Matthew I asked him how he can make a living of horse racing which essentially is gambling where you never know whether you’ll win or not. He was simply laughing at me and telling me straight to my face that only amateurs think horse racing has something to do with luck.

“If it were a matter of luck only, do you think I would have quit my job? I may be a horse racing fanatic, alright, but I am not an idiot”.

He added: “If you’re a professional like me you don’t rely on luck. You will have a solid betting strategy in place and you’ll know about horse racing betting from the inside out.”

He told me the key is to have insider knowledge about the races, the horses, the jockeys and then to apply this knowledge. Only by doing that he was able to make a fortune. This is the difference between horse racing professionals and those people who go to the races just for fun.

He told me about free racing tips which I can recommend to you if you’re into horse racing as well.
