Writing a Business Plan

Your business plan is a snapshot of your business and associated financial goals. Your company description provides summary information on what you do, what differentiates your business from others, and the markets that your business serves. Before launching a business, research your industry and competitors. If you need outside funding, financial projections that support your request are essential. Please visit the Small Business Administration website, to find more information about starting a business. The following four steps are crucial to starting any small business.

1. Use online tools and templates as a basis from which to create an original business plan. This written plan will map out how you plan to start and run your own business.

2. Choose a realistic location. You need to learn the balance between high-traffic and high-rent, to select a viable location and adhere to zoning laws. You may wish to apply for government-backed loans, venture capital, or research grants to help you get started. Working capital has to be sufficient to provide liquidity during initial, growth periods.

3. Decide which form of business incorporation is best suited, a sole proprietorship, partnership, limited liability company, an 'S corporation,' non-profit organization, or cooperative venture.

4. Learn about business taxes from the IRS, and your state tax department. You must obtain a tax identification number, and all required business licenses and permits. Further, if you are planning on hiring other people, everything gets more complicated.

NASDAQ Market

The art of investments is based on the mathematical principle of doublings over time. While a typical business venture is happy to receive an ROI of 10% yearly, more aggressive returns are possible in the internet age, without incurring undue risk. This page will explore the new medium of MROI, a monthly return on investment.

Along more traditional lines, NASDAQ offers a wealth of investing tutorials, and live streams of data from it's online network of websites, headquartered at Nasdaq.com.

Financial Job Descriptions

The firm that hires you may sponsor fees for required licenses, but exams are difficult and will require preparation. Analysts are required to pass the Series 16 supervisory analyst exam, which permits distribution of analytical reports. Further, analysts may take the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) exam.

Hedge funds are well-known for taking on greater risk, focusing on very high returns. Hedge funds have few restrictions on how they can invest, so your job security rests squarely on your ability to earn above-market returns. In order to prove yourself in this highly-competitive field, expect very long hours, and high stress. Large firms manage a variety of asset classes, while boutique firms focus on a particular market niche, such as small-cap stocks or high-yield bonds. While hedge funds and money managers buy and sell securities, private equity firms purchase entire corporations, seeking to either resell the companies outright, or take them public. Your job duties may include analyzing potential purchases, negotiating deals, raising financing, or working directly on portfolio profitability.

Real estate firms attempt to either develop new real estate projects or purchase existing projects. Finance jobs at a real estate company include working as a financing specialist, analyst or deal manager. Institutional investment managers invest money for a pension fund, sovereign wealth fund, or an insurance company, in an effort to generate returns over time. Your role may be that of an investment analyst, portfolio manager or currency trader.

Banks are at the heart of the finance industry, financing trade or infrastructure deals, and managing the money of wealthy people. The range of careers in banking is enormous, and often includes beginning as a teller, or accountancy, then working up into branch management or corporate positions. Work is available in specialist areas such as insurance, lending, foreign currency, investment management, trade finance, and financial control. Investment banks give strategic advice to corporations, provide corporate financing, and trade in stocks, bonds, and other securities, often using automated, high-speed trading software. One of the primary functions of investment banks is raising capital. This function falls upon the underwriting department. Bankers in the underwriting department specialize either in debt underwriting or equity. Private equity jobs can be found within an investment bank but most are found at specialist firms. Some of the largest private equity firms include Blackstone, KKR and TPG.
