Do you pay cash or card?

Seriously, what do you prefer?

Did you think how easy is to have no cash with you? Somewhere it’s easy, but not so in Moldova. In our country, you should be ready to have both. You never know when you will need to buy something and the store can’t accept the card payments.

It is essential to keep the pace with new technologies and adapt quickly to what could help you;
– Use cards despite of cash.
– The app that tracks your finance. I use MoneyLover; you can search and find something that fits your need.
– Use internet banking to pay your bills it saves you a lot of time, and you can plan simpler your spendings.
– Plan and track everything, your travels, significant investments, spendings, etc. If a company need to have, any penny monitored, why you shouldn’t do the same?
– Save your most important files online, Google Drive, Dropbox, and Box are doing an excellent job for that.
– Use Google Drive and online Microsoft Office to keep your docs together. If you plan to track everything the online Excel its a good fit, also the mobile app is a help.
– Get a recommendation from Swarm and Foursquare apps. If you search for new places, this app will advise you.
– Open less social media apps; nowadays they are very big distractors and show you a lot of irrelevant content. Filter, filter, and filter again. Have your priorities in order and keep the focus to obtain your goals.
– Put together the Trello app boards and start planning your days, weeks, months and years. Boring? I don’t give a shit, I have one life to live, and I bet to live it as I want, not how others want. Even if it takes me five years to create systems that help me achieve what I dare, I can benefit from it at least another 40-50 years.
– Receive notifications from Google Calendar, not Instagram. More focus on whats important and fewer distractions on useless photos.
– Are books heavy? Read the e-books 🙂 easy and comfortable to use. And many many more.

Keep the pace with technology if that will increase your productivity and help you have a better life.

Real entrepreneurs

 

Real entrepreneurs are those that build the healthy relationship with their team.

No one in the world can run a successful long-term company without trusted colleagues. In Moldova, we know a lot of ”self-claimed” entrepreneurs that don’t give a shit on people and stakeholders they work. They think that if you have a profit at the end of the month that it’s essential that you can have. If you collect your salary, it doesn’t matter what salary receive your colleagues. The bad experience from Sovietic times taught the people that someone needs to work for you for a penny. Instead, you should grab everything you can and live your life as you want.

My opinion is that the strategy will not work for an extended period. The history confirmed this fact.

Being close and right to your people can give you a chance to build a reputation, a relationship, and a legacy that will last a long time.

Real entrepreneurs are those that care enough to understand that their lives are the same as the employees they hire. It’s easy to hire a right specialist, but its harder to make him stay and care about your product and the work he does.

When you think the next time to open a business or to become an entrepreneur, think twice, can you build relationships that will last?
