How Much Money Does A Business Need To Make

Have you ever wondered how much money a business needs to make? Even though there is no general rule that could be applied to all the businesses out there, we can still analyse a few different perspectives.You will learn about the notion of money. What does money mean for your business? Is it how you measure success or is it the result of the value you create? How relevant is the amount you make for your business?I draw a line between two main things that I compare in this episode: the business where you sell your service and the business where you sell your product. The former one is usually related to freelancing and having a rate based on your time. I also touch upon running an online business and how it differs from these other two.This episode is your chance to learn about calculating the cost of running a business. How much money should you put aside for yourself? How much money should you expect to make during the first year? How much does it cost to hire an employee? How to choose the right location for your business? Should you buy or lease the equipment? How long does it take until you turn a profit? These are just some of the questions I tackle here.Finally, I explain the important difference between running a business and doing a business.

Dealing With Anger

In this podcast, I tackle a few questions related to anger. I talk about things like: How do you deal with anger? Why is something triggering your unwanted reaction? Where does the anger come from?, and I offer some possible solutions. If you ever feel like you get easily overcome by anger, this podcast is for you.When anger happens repetitively, we need to find and resolve the first thing that caused it. I explain this method in detail - why it’s important, how it affects us later on, how we fall into the cycle of feeling angry over the same thing, and why ignoring an issue never really solves it.Another important point is reprogramming our triggers. You will learn how to turn your triggers into something positive. I talk about the ways to do so; from neurolinguistic programming to find a way to channel your energy into something positive.Lastly, I focus on showing you how you can allow the feeling without reacting to it. You will learn what disassociating means and how you can apply it.I hope this topic teaches you some useful methods that will help you cope with anger in the future. At the end of the day, anger is just a feeling, and we can all use it to grow and become better through dealing with it.
