    t think I have reached that point in my life yet but I know that I will be at that point soon But getting to that point you have to endure the following Personally Accept that like scientists you will have to try and try again until you get the winning formula while accepting that business goes in cycles it has ups and downs And how you handle the downs is what makes or breaks you Having life partners family and friends questioning why are you re putting yourself through such pain Loosing friends that can t relate to what you re going through Waking up in the middle of the night having to write some new thoughts that will enhance your business Joining gym not only to get fit but to work through your frustrations of the day Dealing with people that don t have a clue about business but telling you what you re doing wrong Go through the day realising you have not eaten all day Feeling dehydrated and weak from not having hydrated yourself with drink of water Watching TV and not having a clue what is going on because all you re thinking about is the deal you re working on Realising that you are actually a bit crazy to do what you do Financially Sometimes not having any cash at all Going to your bank manager for a loan and when they see you they literally run away Making creditors understand that paying late is character building for them Asking clients to pay before you supply and getting it right After 25 years of being an entrepreneur would you change anything Not on your life I LOVE what I do I love the fact that I am making a difference and that rewards do come to those that follow their passion You see it s not so much that you become an entrepreneur just to make money It s because you can have a positive impact to the people around you that s the main driver The feeling of living your dream is immeasurable What would you say to a potential entrepreneur All it takes is the courage to take that first step and say yes I want to do this and keep on doing it The rest is easy You can also engage with us on Facebook Twitter and LinkedIn Read more Entrepreneurship A very lonely road When walking down the road of establishing a business you will often find yourself asking who can truly help you You can talk to your life partner and family accountant and lawyer It is always important to obtain professional advice in business matters But where do you turn when you are feeling a bit lost or even despondent When you get conflicting advice which happens more often than one would think which advice do you follow I am often amazed to hear entrepreneurs seeking advice from friends that never have been in business It is surprising

    rest is easy You can also engage with us on Facebook Twitter and LinkedIn Read more Entrepreneurship A very lonely road When walking down the road of establishing a business you will often find yourself asking who can truly help you You can talk to your life partner and family accountant and lawyer It is always important to obtain professional advice in business matters But where do you turn when you are feeling a bit lost or even despondent When you get conflicting advice which happens more often than one would think which advice do you follow I am often amazed to hear entrepreneurs seeking advice from friends that never have been in business It is surprising how keen and willing everyone is so willing to give business advice We at Caban believe that only entrepreneurs can effectively assist other entrepreneurs Only those that have walked down the entrepreneurship road can truly understand the pitfalls I remember before I had kids I started a bit later than most at the age of 35 I used to ask my friends what it was like to be a father The answer was always the same it cannot be described and one has to go through the experience I am now the father of three wonderful children and the experience is truly magical beyond explanation Entrepreneurship is the same you have to experience it to be able to advice properly I am a great believer in the right MBA programmes In fact I am embarking once again on this route My previous attempts were unsuccessful Not because the material was hard it was the fact that the professors teaching about business had never been in business themselves I started my business when I was 25 I started my MBA when I was 29 I already had four years business experience My argument with the lectures used to be the fact that the examples that were given were taken from the assumption that most things went right The reality is that most things go wrong Furthermore the lecturers were academics with no business experience I would pose questions to them such as what do they suggest one does when the debtors are slow in payment your bank facilities are maxed you have no cash flow and you need materials from your suppliers to produce The answer was usually let me look it up and I will come back to you Through experience one knows that in this kind of a situation more often than not if you speak to your suppliers frankly honestly and come up with a plan that is acceptable your suppliers will assist After all they want to keep you as a client This comes through experience No text book will tell you what to do under the above circumstances Having said that there are MBA programmes that add a lot of value Do research on the lectures before choosing one You will only learn from the failures It is pointless

    income and no assets 16 May 2014 will remembered as the day a nominated advisor NOMAD said they will back our listing of our company on AIM of the London Stock Exchange This particular NOMAD is one of the largest This feeling I felt back in 1997 when I listed my first company The feeling is overwhelming This is huge for Caban due to the fact that we will be able to assist many more entrepreneurs Furthermore we are proving that it is a profitable business to back entrepreneurs The more entrepreneurs we back the more jobs are created and unemployment is reduced with a resulting drop in crime We are currently working on initiatives that will create thousands of jobs We are humbled by this opportunity So sometimes you will feel down and that is OK But remember when it turns it normally turns in a positive way that turns your life around You just have to keep at it all the time One day at a time because eventually it does turn As Paulo Coelho states Wear your scars of life as medals Cabanites making a difference one day at a time You can also engage with us on Facebook Twitter and LinkedIn Read more What s the difference between Forecasts and Budgets Budgets Budgeting should not be confused to forecasting Forecasting is normally done for investors and information is disclosed differently to a company s budget Each year an entrepreneur should produce budgets When preparing year on year budgets the following should be taken into consideration How much do think your sales will increase by and why Can you improve your margins and how will you achieve this Have you made enough provision for increase in costs Have you covered all incidentals Record all your assumptions When you compare the management accounts to your budgets it will be useful to revisit your assumptions and adjust accordingly After a few years your budgets will become accurate due to the fine tuning of your assumptions Forecasts If you are a start up preparing your five year forecasts can be a very difficult task Entrepreneurs are positive individuals and always set their forecasts high When preparing forecasts the following has to be taken into consideration What is the market size and how much of that market do you want to capture How do you plan to capture the forecasted market share Is it a realistic expectation Have you taken all the potential pitfalls into consideration Have you covered all your costs Are your margins reasonable and have you taken potential price increases into consideration Always back your forecast with proper research and references Do not make broad statements be specific with solid facts List all your assumptions and be very clear as to why you have decided on the various costs It is also a good idea to have professionals look at your forecasts and obtain written opinions that the assumptions are reasonable Once you re happy that you have
