Last month, I discussed how future business owners can avoid unforeseen shocks and surprises before buying a business of their own. On the flip side of the coin is selling a business which has a series of difficulties all on its own ranging anywhere from knowing the right time to sell to finding a capable buyer and even second guessing whether or not it’s time to let go of the business just yet. Regardless of the industry your company may be in, I’ve created a step by step strategic plan on how to successfully, and carefully, sell a business with the people and tools you’ll need on your side in order to make a deal.
BudgetGadgets is located in Shenzhen, China. They have been in online retail/wholesale business since 2003, though I had not heard of them until they contacted me via my site. For full disclosure here, they DID contact me and asked if they could send some product for me to review. I received two products, but instead decided to review not just the products but the site itself and the service they provide.
When asked to do a review the folks at BudgetGadgets said I could simply log on to the site, browse around and choose any two gadgets I’d like to review. At the time they did not know I’d be reviewing the site itself (*wink*).
Ok so don’t read to much into that title. I’m in love with GMail. No really, I LOVES IT. They seem to be cranking out new features regularly (comeon guys fix up the contacts section tho!) like Mail Goggles and Canned Response. Recently released is emoticons for your email (ya… I could have done without that but what the heck people love that stuff). I dunno if anybody noticed, but one of the emoticons is a pile of shit circled by flies!
According to a recent Pew survey, 21 percent of atheists in the United States believe in â€œGod or a universal spirit,â€ and 8 percent are â€œabsolutely certainâ€ that such a Being exists. Sam Harris, author of Letter to a Christian Nation and The End of Faith, wonders if they were also â€œabsolutely certainâ€ they understood the meaning of the term â€œatheist.â€
Since that really didn’t make any sense, he recently conducted a much more detailed poll of atheists and devout Christians through his website. Some of the results were as expected, others were a bit shocking. The results can be viewed via the links below. “For each statement the number of respondents averaged around 5000, 80-90% of whom were atheists. The numbers of Christian responses ranged from 254-787.”
