Everything you should know about your balance sheet

Your company’s balance sheet is essentially a snapshot of your company’s health. Balance sheets are broken down into three main components: assets, liabilities, and equity.

Which pricing model should I use?

Developing a smart pricing model should be an ongoing exercise for companies.

What startups need:  A to-do list 

I was wondering lately, over an hour; but only to my thoughtless spending. What makes a few startups stand out from the crowd even being in the same genre. People would arguably be content to saying and settling for notions such as they were lucky to have found an investor or having their godfather in the business and many more. How fair is it to dismantle your competitor’s ethics in a speck of imperfection? There are exceptions and exceptions are going to remain. But most importantly, it’s the smallest of things that you do that counts for a larger goal. Simply demeaning other’s without considering their struggle is a common mistake that we make.

How to be a high performing employee and entrepreneur

NB: Read if you are a Student or Entrepreneur or Professional in a company.

For a very long time I have been thinking and practicing about how to improve people’s ability to be successful and in a way learning. It has always occurred to me why when a good tool or process is given to a good candidate result in higher output, but even better tools and processes fail for bad candidates.

The primary thing we all know is interest. But once that’s achieved you still suffer from bad output. Then I come across is intensity of interest. Then the motivation and gain of the intensity of interest. But still it was hard.

Then recently I concluded, everyone is missing some core things that they need to know to leverage and intensify their speed towards becoming the better self. The followings are key essential human characteristics that need to be correctly identified and practiced:

1. Motivation
2. Problem solving 101
3. Responsibility, Objective clarity and ownership
4. Science and engineering of successful networking and practice to leverage daily.
5. Effective Googling (Or, you can say effective way of asking question and finding answers)[because if you can’t google correctly you get garbage :P ]
6. Emotional intelligence (a basic average here is still good)

Each of these points have many broad steps if practiced will work really fast in your favor.

I think these foundations and principles of getting successful should be taught to entrepreneurs, professionals, students and even normal people in their curricula. Even Superman had Kryptonite :) These are actually not difficult and can be taught and practiced easily.

So I have started sessions for our employees weekly. In future I’ll conduct this in colleges we normally get interns and hires from. We hope we can get people who already practiced and acquainted in these processes.

We’ll continuously post things on our blog and what we discussed here each week. Please do subscribe to our blog to get the email notifications when we post new things. You can find the subscription form here: http://eepurl.com/b0-UQL

Screenshot from 2015-11-21 12:43:44

So last week we introduced a cool new feature called saved searches and we introduced a budgeting of such. With this tool you can save the search that you frequently do and a bit frustrated to filter the Cash summery every time.

Screenshot from 2015-11-21 12:42:15

As shown in the picture. Once you searched something in the cash summery, click on the star icon to save that search. You can keep the dates boundary for your search or keep it open for adjusting to any date.

Plus you can mention the budgets you want to create. You can do budgeting for either income or expense for now.

This kind of budgeting would help you in budgeting expenses for a particular project or for a particular  employee or activity that you tagged.

Screenshot from 2015-11-21 12:43:05

We’ll soon publish a video explaining what more and effective you can do with this tool. Till then ponder over your own ideas and create fabulous saved searches and budgets for them. And do let us know how it helped you.
