Career Success For Your Children – Guaranteed!

By   January 30, 2017

Increasingly more families, not only in the United Kingdom, are becoming aware how a reputable private school can benefit their children. It is as simple as realizing that nothing can be as important like a good education when you want to max out your children’s chances later on in life.

Unfortunately, state schools in the UK are not always up to par when it comes education quality.  Many of the nation’s public schools are suffering from underfunding, overcrowded classrooms and more significant disadvantages. It is for that reason not surprising that increasingly more people are now looking to at private schools as being a better alternative.

Official statistics confirm that having attended a private school can often be one, if not the one major factor that will decide over someone’s career. It is a fact that most politicians, lawyers and other highly paid professionals in the United Kingdom come from a background with private education. Moreover, the good reputation of private schools in the UK is attracting students from families from all over the world today. Families from China, Asia or the Middle East are sending their children to UK to get the best education they can get today.

Most families in the United Kingdom and elsewhere are understanding that private schooling options in the UK are not a thing any longer that is only  accessible for the wealthy elites. While the UK has still a good number of expensive top private schools, there are now more affordable options available as well.

Look whether a private school can be a better option as compared to a public school for your children. Take some time and compare several private schools side-by-side so you know what they can offer your children. It is more than likely that the decision to send your children to a private school will pay for itself! With a good school in Hertfordshire, Bristol, Nottingham or elsewhere in United Kingdom you can truly max out your children’s potential!

Success in a Niche: The Singing Waiters

By   November 19, 2015

London’s surprise entertainers “The Singing Waiters” are one prime example for how one can become very successful with a business idea, even in sometimes rather obscure niches.

singing waiters – LondonLet’s be honest, no one would immediately think about big-money when we are looking at a business niche such as weddings or corporate entertainment.

The Singing Waiters proved us wrong.

The group is today playing one major part in the ever-increasing popularity of surprise entertainment in the United Kingdom.

It seems that the London group of dedicated professional dancers, musicians and singers has hit gold in a segment that some would otherwise have ignored as being not very profitable.

According to The Singing Waiters, their success is also because they manage it to set themselves apart from other, similar entertainers in the United Kingdom. Unlike other surprise entertainers, the Singing Waiters are all professionally trained. Each of their performances at events such as wedding receptions, anniversaries or incorporate get-togethers is always an unforgettable moment thanks to their professionalism.

“When it comes to musical entertainment, I think that we simply deliver more than most others in that industry”, says a spokesperson of The Singing Waiters.

“In a time where money is tight, people want to know today that they can get the best for their money. This is especially true if one considers that most of those events where we are getting booked for are once-in-a-lifetime events. In other words, people want everything perfect for occasions that perhaps happen only once-in-a-lifetime. Our professional singers and dancers can deliver this like no one else can. We want every party or whatever event where we are invited to be unforgettable for everyone!”

More Than 26,000 Businesses in the UK Run by Young Entrepreneurs

By   May 20, 2015

New numbers released by consultancy firm Procorre showed that there are more than 26,000 entrepreneurs under the age of 21 who are listed as directors of companies in the UK today.

According to the report, one main reason for the increase of entrepreneurs in the nation is the what’s known as “app economy”, that is the development of mobile applications for smartphones and tablet devices. Some experts go even so far as to talk about a new “Generation Entrepreneur” seeing how many young people today are being successful in this field.

The study highlights several successful entrepreneurs as examples, such as Ella Woordward who is the founder of Deliciously Ella, a website that gets over 150,000 visitors per day or entrepreneur Ross Bailey with his successful shop booking platform Appear Here.

While Great Britain’s unemployment rate amongst the youth is still sitting at a high 16.2%, the U.K.’s technology sector is expected to grow four times faster compared to the nation’s GDP this year. As a result of this, tech firms in the UK are expected to see 11% growth and along with it many more opportunities for aspiring entrepreneurs.

On Electronic Invoicing

By   March 3, 2015

Electronic-Invoice BenefitsAs a small business owner I am always on the lookout for methods and techniques that can make my employee’s and my life easier.

Sometimes it’s the obvious things such as small business software packages that can help to get things done quicker and more efficiently, and sometimes it’s lesser known things that can also have a tremendous, positive impact.

One of those things that I didn’t know yet until several months ago is electronic invoicing. Let me explain what electronic invoices are:

You will certainly be familiar with the common way to create invoices: You will in all likelihood create and print a invoice in Word or a similar word processor software. You print out the invoice and snail-mail it to your clients or distributors.

With electronic invoicing you can fore-go the tedious and time consuming part of mailing the invoices. What you do, instead of snail-mailing an invoice you will send it per email to an electronic invoice provider service that will digitize and process the invoice for you. The service will then send the invoice to the recipient. The entire process will take only a few minutes as compared to days when you send invoices per normal mail.

For me, this is something which has hugely paid off! It saves me and my employees a lot of time. In addition to that, invoices are now processed and paid a lot faster – there is also no risk of losing an invoice in the mail (something which can happen once in a while) any longer.

So if you’re a business owner and want something to speed up your process I can highly recommend electronic invoicing to you. You won’t have to change a lot in your invoicing process which means that the switch to e-invoicing will be easy, no matter what type of business you have.

IT Apprenticeships in London

By   March 3, 2015

In the United Kingdom, the IT and networking sector is amongst the most competitive job markets when compared with others. Not only are positions in this market high in demand and therefore rather scarce. In recent times, increasingly more employees in this industry expect their job applicants to have real life IT experience which means that freshmen who are just of school won’t have to be easy to find a desired position.

IT-Apprenticeship-LondonThe difficulties in this job market are certainly one major reason why IT apprenticeships are now becoming popular amongst graduates who seek to enter this career field.

By taking advantage of the benefits IT apprenticeships can provide, graduates in the United Kingdom can increase their chances in this field tremendously. Here in this blog post I want to go over those advantages that apprenticeships can provide today.

IT Apprenticeships are a smart way to acquire training and certifications

Hardly any employer today would hire an applicant who doesn’t have mandatory IT knowledge which can be acquired through certifications such as the A+ IT certification. However, many companies today offer to sponsor their apprentices to acquire those certifications while being in training. What this means is that the company would cover in full or in parts the costs to acquire those certifications for their apprentices. For the apprentice this can mean significantly less costs: One major incentive to take on an IT apprenticeship today.

IT apprenticeships in the United Kingdom can (almost) guarantee a full time position

The number of apprentices whose apprenticeship turns into a full-time position after their training is exceptionally high as compared to other industries. This number is close to 95%. For graduates in the United Kingdom, apprenticeships in London can mean the fastest and smartest way to get into their desired career. In a tough job market, an apprenticeship can provide graduates the edge they need.

A Resource For Holiday Entitlement in the UK

By   June 11, 2014

If you’re note familiar with this already and happen to be a small business owner, you may want to look at https://www.gov.uk/holiday-entitlement-rights/entitlement for helpful information about holiday entitlement for workers in the United Kingdom.

Just short, employees who work a 5-day week must get 28 days’ paid annual leave per year. This is calculated by multiplying a normal week (5 days) by the annual entitlement of 5.6 weeks according to the above website.

For part time workers, those are entitled to a minimum of 5.6 weeks of paid holiday each year, although this may amount to fewer actual days compared to full time workers.
