Chris asks…

how can i start my own e-waste recycling business?

I want to start my own commercial E-waste recycle business in India.Can anyone please guide me.

AustinBusinessConsulting answers:

1. Purchase the best data-security tools on the market to reassure customers that files and personal information are completely wiped out. Research hard drive wiping tools that eliminate files containing account numbers, passwords and confidential files. Create a template for a certification of data security that acts as a receipt for your data-wiping services.
2. Obtain certification for e-waste recycling, hazardous waste handling and standard business operations from appropriate agencies. Contact your city’s Public Works Department to learn about disposal methods and zoning requirements that must be met before opening for business.
3. Map out a disassembly line in your recycling facility as the first step in the e-waste handling process. Use a conveyor belt to move PCUs, monitors and TVs from the unloading area to the CRT crusher. Your assembly line will be tasked with removing plastic covers, metal bodies and wood paneling to break down e-waste to its internal elements.
4. Purchase a Cathode Ray Tube (CRT) crusher to handle glass and metal inside of computers and TVs. The CRT crusher implodes the tube, filters out broken glass and separates metals from glass into individual containers. Your business will need to find recyclers to take these materials to avoid keeping hazardous waste in your facility.
5. Apply higher fees for recycling e-waste that is oversized or shaped awkwardly. Write out a menu of e-waste products that you will accept from customers. Include a provision in your e-waste recycling pricing that says you reserve the right to charge more based on an onsite inspection.
6. Call local recyclers, computer refurbishers and other companies that may be interested in purchasing processed e-waste materials. Work out weekly and monthly deliveries to your contacts to earn some revenue while moving e-waste out of your facility. Target computer consultants and refurbishers who use PCU covers and cords to rebuild computers.
7. Sell USB cords, power cords, speakers and other accessories attached to e-waste that can be salvaged. Maintain a small space in your facility to handle orders from individuals and businesses in need of inexpensive supplies. Ask permission to resell these accessories from your customers without need for compensation.

What do you all make of this then, 1 year on and things have got worse.?

Britons have worst state pension in EUBy SEAN POULTER
Last updated at 22:08 12 November 2007 ( Daily Mail )

Millions of Britons are being condemned to poverty in old age by the worst state pension in the EU, a study shows.

The basic state pension of £90 a week is equivalent to just 16 per cent of the average wage, it found.

This figure rises to 30 per cent once pension payments related to earnings are taken into account.

But this is still only half the EU average of 60 per cent, the financial firm Aon Consulting said. Its study concluded: “The inadequacy of the state system is beyond question.”

Charities including Help the Aged warn the problem has been made worse because the state pension has failed to keep pace with increases in the cost of essentials such as heating, water, and council tax.

A recent study found a quarter of pensioners are having to cut back on basics to survive. Until recently many British workers could rely on private pensions such as final salary schemes.

However, many of the most generous schemes have been replaced by deals requiring higher monthly payments in return for a smaller pension.

In addition, the study said a “spate” of banking scandals and crises had damaged confidence in the private pension system.

As a result, Britons are not investing in private pensions on the scale needed to make up for the state system’s failings.

The average age of retirement in Britain – 62.6 – is also above the EU average of 61. Some 57 per cent of Britons aged between 55 and 64 are in paid employment.

Aon found the value of Britain’s state pension for a single person is 30.8 per cent of the average wage. This figure is 32.5 per cent in Ireland, 39.9 per cent in Germany and 51.2 per cent in France.
The most generous state pension is offered by Greece, where the figure is 95.7 per cent.

Aon said Britain’s ageing population is reliant on young immigrants to boost the number of workers, generating taxes to fund pensions.

But it stressed this was not a longterm solution to the pensions crisis.
The firm’s chief actuary, Donald Duval, said: “Migrant workers have helped boost the pension pot in the UK to mitigate against its demomeal-graphic problems but this is not a sustainable measure.

It is a smokescreen hiding deeper issues facing the pension system.

“More needs to be done to restore confidence in private schemes so as to drive an increased level of contributions. People cannot afford to rely on the state pension, which remains the lowest in Europe.

“The 2005 Turner Report on the future of pensions concluded that the ageing population left the UK with four choices: lower pensions, higher retirement ages, higher member contributions or higher taxes.

“Assuming that the first is unacceptable, some combination of the latter three needs to be encouraged.”

A spokesman for Help the Aged said: “Pensioners are resorting to strategies such as buying cut-price food that is nearly out of date.

“Increasingly the poorest pensioners are turning to friends and family to help them out.

“Debt agencies are also reporting an increase in the number of older people who have borrowed money they can’t repay.

“Simple things like going out for a meal or inviting people to your home become impossible. Holidays are completely out of the question, while people have to cut back on hobbies and social events.”

The Government plans to restore a link between rises in earnings and rises in the basic pension by 2012.

However, this will be part of a package that will also raise the retirement age from 65 in 2024 to 68 by 2050.

One million pensioners eating less to pay heating bills

The Government should ignore some of the money pensioners receive from private schemes to encourage more Britons to save towards their retirement, a report suggests.

The Pensions Policy Institute said many are afraid to invest in private schemes because they would lose means-tested state benefits.

The research charity suggested the Government should therefore disregard the first £12 a week someone receives from a private pension when calculating their state benefits.

This would allow someone to have a pension fund worth £6,000 before it affected their means-tested benefits.

AustinBusinessConsulting answers:

The priority for the British is to featherbed the yuppies, especially if they are female. They are the wanted, the desirable. Brown’s tax cuts will be aimed at them. So will Cameron’s and Clegg’s. If they wanted to help the poor, they should cut Council Tax to a fifth of what it now is.

The success of celebrity culture, nightclubs, hairdressers, fashion boutiques and all the other trappings of Cool Britannia reflect the importance we put on these people.

The middle-aged and the elderly can go hang: “Ewwww, gross” is the correct response when contemplating anyone over 40. Middle aged men in the workplace have just one function, and that is fodder for redundancy, with the odd temporary maternity leave assignments with minimal training, pay, and nil prospects. Sacking men is one helpful way to show you are doing your bit for women’s emancipation.

The result is that most of the money is blown on stylish lifestyles for yuppies and aspirational wannabe celebrities, and those who would save for their old age are being prevented from doing so, because these are the folk being pushed out of the workplace.

I am now 52, so I am past it. I doubt I will ever work again. Rather than have me being a drain on the country’s finances for the next 40 years, would it not be more merciful just to give me, and those like me, a nice quick cyanide capsule, and make our benefit payments conditional on us taking it?

Paul asks…

Best place to start a career in business.?

I am a very ambitious person, did very well in the college years and I want to have a brilliant career in business. My long term target is to become the CEO of a company.
I am not saying that I want to become rich at alla costs and swim pools of money: I just genuinely believe to have the potential, the skills, the strenght, the will to achieve the highest targets.

I am so looking for career paths that fit with my goals.

I was recently given an offer by Procter and Gamble, which is a pretty good company, but I was wondering if entering management consulting would be better to launch my career.
If so, what do you think is better: top-tier firms (e.g. Mckinsey) or boutique firms?

Thank you

AustinBusinessConsulting answers:

A few suggestions:

1. Look at the career of CEOs you know about or admire. What are their career paths? What do they identify as important? Which disciplines did the CEO’s emerge from? You will see a clear pattern here of Sales/Marketing and Financial services. This is changing a bit though.

Note* Look at the careers of CEOs that have failed or those that have ended in disgrace as well. There are lessons to be learned there as well.

2. Look for companies with management training programs that will have you rotate through various functions before you settle into a path.

3. You should understand something about consulting – a lot of new professionals think they will be able to see multiple facets of a business with consulting. This is not necessarily the case. You will see a lot of the same function be it Accounting, HR or Marketing,but across different companies. Companies will rely on growing your expertise in a specific discipline.

4. Join professional associations and read business media. Read books about the future like “Whole New Mind”, “Blue Ocean Strategy” or “Winning” by Jack Welch.

5. Identify mentors and leadership programs within your company.

6. Put yourself in a learning mode. I know you did well in college and I can sense your confidence level. Understand however, that you have a LOT to learn and you need to put yourself in LEARN mode. People love to help new professionals who want to learn.

Entry Level Business Consulting Jobs

Chris asks…

Can I pursue an accounting degree at uni after taking biosciences for a levels?

I took 4 subjects for my a levels including biology, chemistry, maths and psychology. I’ve decided not to continue pursuing science and would rather do business-related studies such as accounting. The entry requirement for accounting into Monash Uni (Aus) is 12 points (A = 5 points, B = 4 etc.) and the subject pre-requisite is maths.
Will it be hard to switch from science to business and is it too late?
I’d also like to know what branch in accounting would have the highest pay and job prospects as well as what I should do to achieve that. Thanks!

AustinBusinessConsulting answers:

Of course you can study accounting at uni, or any other major. It’s not too late. Your sciences will give you breadth that any accountant needs.

Don’t worry about branches in accounting. By the time you take the courses needed for the major, you’ll be able to decide whether you best like auditing, taxation, consulting, or any other branch.

Yes, you can study accounting without any problem. Your science background will be useful. You don’t need to prepare for a business major until you get into the university.

As for branch in accounting, don’t worry about it. You should strive for the CPA or at least CMA, which require professional examinations after you graduate. Whether you decide on auditing, taxation, consulting, or other area, all will get you good job offers as long as you maintain good grades.

Laura asks…

How to achieve maximum billing & highest productivity as a Single Recruiter?

My firm specialises in executive search and recruitments for the middle and senior management positions. We’re planning to add a branch office at a new location. To begin with it will have a single recuiter and depending upon how business goes, we will add more. My question is what should a single recruiter do to achieve maximum billing? What should be the overall strategy? How should he position himself in the market? Should a single recruiter do more middle positions (as there are numbers) or should he do more senior positions? or should he do both? Should he specialise in a single domain and make all his database specific to that domain or industry? or should do he do fresh research for the positions that he receives from the client side? We work on a lot of senior positions in multiple domains. In such cases, profiles are not available in the database and most of the time, we have to do fresh research specifically catering to the need of that position. The billings are decent being senior positions, but it takes time to close, the process is slow. After client has selected his choice of candidate, we are left with a pipeline of senior candidates that goes waste and we’re unable to use them. My question is how can a single recruiter achieve maximum billing, increase productivity and be able to place the maximum out of his database and his research. Should he focus on single domain or multiple domain, middle or senior levels, how many number of clients should he handle at a time? Please share your experience, views and observations. Thanks You Ajay Kukreja Out-Of-Box Consulting

AustinBusinessConsulting answers:

You need to build resources with as little effort as possible.

A lot of college graduates are already professionals upgrading their education (like me), and contacting instructors is a way of getting applicants in the door who already have some of the qualifications you need.

Instructors are not allowed to single out students, though, the only thing they can do is put out announcements to their classes.

Business Development Ideas For Consulting Firms

Paul asks…

Can someone please clarify this Business question for me thanks?

This is the question (Summarize your recommendations for this corporation in terms of what they should be looking for in their results from the point of view of QUALITY ASSURANCE and MANAGEMENT STRUCTURE)

to improve profitability in its manufacturing operations. The company had very good metrics for managing plant and assembly operations. The problem was that each facility used different methodologies for standards development and line balancing. While these techniques had resulted in productivity gains, management believed more significant and consistent results could be achieved using a proven, consistent methodology.
For the initiative to be truly successful, the company would need to change not only the technical side of its manufacturing process, but also the company culture, including how its employees performed their jobs. Prior to the project, the typical line re-engineering took an average of six months to complete and implement. With such a significant savings opportunity, the company wanted to realize the savings much faster than six months per line. To accelerate the realization of this cost savings opportunity, the company reviewed proposals from several consulting providers before choosing you to assist them with the improvement initiative.
To begin, the company wanted to balance assembly lines in three separate facilities. This would allow the company to increase assembly line productivity, while creating a consistent balancing tool for multiple facilities. The initiative would also provide the companies engineers with a tool to evaluate method improvement ideas in a timely and accurate manner, and offer tools, training and documented processes for supervisors to follow in other manufacturing plants. To achieve success, the company needed a consistent methodology that would allow workers across its manufacturing facilities to “speak the same language,” by using the same tools and techniques.

so im really not sure what this question is asking. but this is what i got so far, is it right and am i on the right track and also can you also give me more ideas to add thanks alot

This is what i got (From what I read you need my recommendations in the following areas: Quality Assurance and Management structure. Let me start off stating what Quality Assurance is. QA is an operational activity whose primary focus is to make sure that the firm’s overall quality objectives are met. It is a great idea to make QA plan for every project to make sure the final products are of the upmost quality. First you need to find out what needs to be done. Next you need to make sure you know your quality objectives for the product. After you discovered that it is good to write down all the roles and their responsibility for the project and give the workers their roles. It is important to make sure after assigning their roles they understand everything it’s asking of them. Lastly set a deadline in which these roles are to be complete. If you follow this the quality of the product will never change.)

William asks…

why would the commonwealth bank pay $1mill for a logo and who designed it?

AustinBusinessConsulting answers:

At first, a million $ sounds like way “too much” for “just a logo design.”

But for very large corporations, the logo design (new design) process is quite detailed, and entails a lot of work and expense.

Example: the design consulting firm will do a VERY extensive marketing study to determine what changes need to be made in the corporate identity, and once this information is processed, a “design statement” will be produced. Then, the designers at the firm begin creating possible logo designs – perhaps hundreds of possible logos. When the possible logo designs have been narrowed down to just a few, focus groups composed of consumers will be used to determine the perceptions that are generated by each proposed logo.

And that’s just the beginning. Once the final logo is chosen, the REAL detailed (and time-consuming) work is in having the design firm produce a design “system.” That is, the logo must be consistently used on every piece of paper, every sign, every vehicle, every special item, every uniform, etc., that will be used by the business. This is a huge task that may involved thousands of different applications of the logo.

The cost of new printing, new signs, etc., can literally reach into the tens of millions of dollars. (This cost may be done overnight, or phased in.)

For a huge firm, a new logo is a big undertaking, and will not be trusted to a small-time designer — usually this is done by global firms.

I don’t know who is doing the new Commonwealth logo. But the two top design firms in the world are Lippincott & Mercer (NYC) , and Landor Associates (San Francisco).

I am looking to target the businesses around M 25 London

I am ready to give a try multi channel campaign.

AustinBusinessConsulting answers:

Here are your steps:

Firstly, know what you are. If you do all of the things you mentioned above, then you are an IT Consultancy, and those are the services you provide. Your company description is IT Consultancy; your job description is IT Consultant, and your business cards should say the same. If you start reading off a list of services, then people will just switch off. Let people ask if you can solve a particular problem, don’t just read the list (because by the sound of things, you are willing to solve any IT problem).

Secondly, get a website. You’re in IT, so if you don’t have a website you will not be credible (and you will not be found). Use wordpress and find a clean, professional template to use. WordPress is faster than coding your own, a better use of your time, and it will look better (you are an IT consultant, not a designer).

Thirdly, create landing pages. These are pages that people go to whenever they arrive from an advert. You will want one for every single service that you say you provide. Landing pages should include prices, a description of that particular service, a testimonial, and the call to action. Your call to action needs to be: “Click Here For a Quote”. This will open a page that enables the person to input their contact details so you can call back.

Fourthly, use google adwords. Search for a free coupon (you should be able to get £30 free). Create adverts for every one of the services that you say you provide, and send those to their landing page (unless you want to waste all your money, do not send those to the homepage). All your marketing budget should be driven into google adwords for now. Chances are, it will be the most effective platform for your company. Ask yourself what you would do if you encountered a problem with a household appliance; thats right, you would google it. This goes without saying, but use adwords to target the London area.

Fifthly, get business cards. Each time you provide a service for someone, give them your business card; each time you tell someone about what you do, give them your business card. If even one person picks up your business card next time they have an IT problem, then the investment has paid for itself.

Lastly, provide great service. If you are great at your job, and you have a smile on your face, people will keep coming back with every problem they have. I’m going to say that again: smile. Every day I see small business owners walk around trying to be ‘the big man’, or with a look that says they regret starting their business. They do not get repeat business. I can choose between hundreds of small businesses in London that offer the same service at the same price, the only thing that keeps me going back to the same company is if I like the people.

Best of luck.

What are some ways that a new start-up or small business can use social networks to grow their business?

Every big company is on Facebook and Twitter (etc). What are some ways that a small business owner use the power of these social networks to help get their business off of the ground and growing (without paying “consulting firms” a fortune to manage a free Facebook page)?

AustinBusinessConsulting answers:

Coley, you’re instincts are correct that you can take advantage of social networking sites to build your business without hiring a consultant. The beauty of these tools is that they are free (at least for now) and work best when used by real people who are using them to connect with other like-minded real people. Here are a few ideas to get you started.

Facebook
Start a fan page. This article by Katie Hellmuth Martin will walk you through how it’s done:

http://thatitgirl.blogspot.com/2008/04/how-to-make-fan-page-in-facebook.html

Spread the word about your Facebook page. Talk about your new page at every opportunity. Include it as part of your email signature. Link to it on your company’s website. Send out an online newsletter to your customer list announcing the new page, perhaps offering a coupon or some other promotion to those who visit and do something like leave a comment on your Facebook wall. Tell all your personal friends on Facebook about your business’s new page and invite them to become fans.

Encourage people to share your content. Consider posting things your fans might want to share on their walls; each time that happens, it will send more visitors back to your page. I posted a slideshow on the world’s ugliest buildings from Travel + Leisure’s page on my Facebook wall because it was amusing. That’s just the kind of thing that gets people talking and going to check out the rest of Travel + Leisure’s page.

Make it useful or fun to visit your page. If you sell gourmet foods, offer recipes on the page. If you sell athletic gear, post advice about fitness and nutrition. Better yet, create a program for people wanting to monitor their diet or exercise routine; they’ll need to return to the page every time they update it. If you’re an interior designer, publish before and after shots of rooms you’ve furnished. Make it interactive by asking people to vote on ideas to complete a room. You get the idea.

Twitter
At first, using Twitter feels a lot like talking into a empty room. But if you use Twitter properly, you will soon be having conversations with customers, potential customers, the media and all kinds of people that can be helpful to your business. This guide for Twitter – http://business.twitter.com/twitter101 – written for the company by Twitter expert Sarah Milstein (co-author of The Twitter Book), gives way smarter advice than I could ever give you. Pay particular attention to the case studies and the best practices.

One thing about social media — people using it love to give and read advice about ways to do it better. Start reading blogs like Mashable.com and Ducttapemarketing.com, and follow industry leaders like Chris Brogan (www.chrisbrogan.com).
